9780006496373: Dark Ages

A mammoth, epic, gothic fantasy. England’s Dark Ages are returning through mythical/supernatural resurrections of ancient Vikings, witches and preachers, ready to battle once more.

For years Fran Bennet has been haunted by a night long ago on Salisbury Plain when she was chased by a cold shadow into woods with no birds. Now, the visions are getting worse – a head luminous with decay, an animal reek lingering long after the figure has gone.

Gary Martin has fared no better. He has looked infinity in the face and slunk into the shadows of life. He was once a promising schoolboy, set for University…until his interest in an antique starchart unwittingly summoned the Ravensbreed – a 9th century sect who have pledged to haunt the land and protect it from invasion in its darkest hour.

That hour has now come. And all hell is about to break loose.

Review:

Praise for Angels of Mourning:

‘Angels of Mourning… his excellent new novel. Perverse… bizarre… juxtaposes magical fiends and mundane settings to marvellously disconcerting effect’
TIME OUT

From the Back Cover:

IT WAS THE STARCHART THAT DID IT

For years Fran has been haunted by a night on Salisbury Plain that took her to the brink of madness. Time and again, she has attempted a fresh start in life only to be dragged back by a recurring and terrible vision – a head luminous with decay, an animal reek lingering long after the image has faded.

Martin has fared no better. He looked infinity in the face and slunk into the shadows of life. He shouldn't have messed with things he didn't know about. He'd been warned. Though his interest in an antique starchart, he unwittingly summoned the Ravensbreed – a ruthless 9th-century sect who have pledged to haunt the land, to protect it from invasion in its darkest hour. When the Ravensbreed are summoned, their enemies soon follow. And they all want to meet him.

Now, as hordes of undead stalk England's desolate landscape, hell – bent on creating a new era of darkness and fear, Fran and Martin must join the Ravensbreed in a final and desperate battle for supremacy.

THE HOUR IS HERE.
THE DARK IS COMING…
