A paranormal historical thriller that puts the "evil" in medieval. Before the Battle of Hastings, at the end of the Anglo-Saxon age, a different sort of battle rages across England—one between the forces of darkness and light. With the King on his deathbed, rebellion brewing in the north, and the Normans preparing to invade from the south, an ancient evil has awakened that rules the night and plots a conquest of its own. Caught in the middle is Edwyn, the son a peasant farmer, who finds himself entangled in a deadly power struggle that is turning loved ones into mortal enemies and humans into blood-thirsty beasts. As dark forces close in, Edwyn's courage is tested and events unfold that will decide the fate of kings, nobles, and common folk alike and set the course of English history for the next thousand years.
