The year is 1436. Sir Richard de Colleville is out hunting
with his son when their hounds come upon a pale stranger
savagely gnawing the neck of a fawn. Thinking the stranger
deranged or simply starving, Richard’s men intervene only to
be viciously attacked. What seemed an isolated incident in
the forest spurs a deadly turn of events when Richard learns
that the man’s corpse bears the unmistakable signs of Plague.
Richard tries to allay people’s fears that the Great
Mortality is returned to Gloucester, but these fears soon
prove true when someone within the manor walls exhibits
symptoms. Fear then gives way to unspeakable horror once the
true nature of this Pestilence is revealed. As lord of the
land, Richard has a responsibility to protect his villagers
and tenants, but how can he protect them from the invisible
hand of death? Worse yet, how can he protect the
survivors—including his wife and daughters—from the victims?
Unlike the classic medieval tales of yore, this novel
explores what would have happened had the Great Plague
carried more than just buboes and death. It offers a fresh
take on the modern zombie story by taking the reader back to
a time when sword, armor, and honor were all a man had to
protect himself and those he loved.
