I won't go into a synopsis as this appears to have been done already. I found this book amazing, the charaters were so alive and real that I felt I had gotten to know them personally. Maitland certainly knows how to grip a reader. I only hope she keeps up the great work.

This really is a great book. There's so much in it without becoming dull or droning. It's told from the perspective of a one-eyed outcast who slowly gathers friends who themselves draw him into deeper and darker secrets, while all around them the rest of the country is beseiged by the plague. It's mysterious and powerfully written, drawing out the horror and making it all the scarier with each seemingly unanswerable question.


a new genre - medieval horror!

by quasar on Jun 26, 2009

Maitland story follows a motley group of travelers through England as the plague ravages villages and unrelenting rain ravages the countryside. Each person in the group has something to hide and their secrets are slowly uncovered as they struggle through the country changing their route as they try desperately try to avoid 'the pestilence'. The novel starts out as a clever , dark 'canturbery tales' story, then morphs into medieval horror. Facinating information about daily life, customs and superstitions in the 14th century, a little slow in places, but overall, creative and gripping.
