This is one off my alltime favorite childrens book ever. The story is about 2 brothers who die in the first chapter. The eldest Johnatan dies when he rescued his little brother when their house is on fire. His little brother dies after a long illness and found himself in a medieval afterworld where Johnatan is waiting for him.
The place looks at first a real paradise but is in fact not. In a village nearby the people are suffering under the reign of a despote. Johnatan disapeared when he trying to help the resistence leaving his little brother for the second time alone......
