Synopsis

Another sensational slice of Dark Ages Gothic from the author of the triumphant seller Company of Liars



England, 1321

Welcome to the Dark Ages



In the heart of the countryside lies an isolated village, where pagan Owl Masters rule through fear, superstition and murder.



When a group of religious women ill-advisedly settles outside the village, they awaken dangerous jealousies. Why do their crops succeed? How do their cattle survive the plague? Are they concealing a holy relic which protects them from harm?



The Owl Masters cry 'Witchcraft' and sharpen their talons. As torment and hellfire rain down, the women must look to their faith to save them from the darkness spreading across the land.



Fear is a question of what you believe.

And death alone the answer.





Karen Maitland lives in Lincolnshire and is the author of The White Room, which won an Author's Club Best First Novel Award, and Company of Liars, published to outstanding critical acclaim in 2008.
