Titus Awakes is the fourth and last novel in the Gormenghast series and was finished by Peake's widow, Maeve Gilmore. In this last novel, Titus has left the world of Gormenghast behind, but he remains haunted by memories of his former life. Journeying from snow-covered mountains to archipelagos strewn with coral reefs, he awakens his senses but fails to conquer his aching sense of solitude. A mesmerising novel, Titus Awakes celebrates and mourns both the passing of Gormenghast Castle and the life of its creator.

    " Not a lot to say. I don't think I would have missed much by not reading it. Only a couple of pages by Mervyn Peake, the rest was pretty dull, with a couple of instances of reasonable writing. A shame, but I shouldn't have expected too much. "

    " I loved Peake's Gormenghast trilogy. This did not disappoint. I found the tone lighter, and room for hope in a desperate world. "

    " It makes me sad how bad this is. Better to think about re-reading the magisterial Gormenghast trilogy. "
