“…a heart warming tale, wrapping the deep meaning of Christmas in amongst a clever little mystery…a perfect Xmas tale!” – Parmenion Book Reviews
December, 1323 AD
Holly and ivy decorate the houses while voices are raised in song, but the Christmas cheer is tempered by terror this festive season, as demons haunt a small English village.
Strange thefts; cloven hoof-prints in the snow; a house burned to the ground.
Something evil stalks the icy streets of Brandesburton and former mercenary Tuck must find out what, before it’s too late.
As he sets out to solve the mystery the friar prays his faith will protect him. His faith AND his great quarterstaff, for he knows full well – the Devil makes no deals…
This brand new novella from the best-selling author of the Forest Lord series will delight and entertain historical fiction fans looking to escape the madness of Christmas shopping for a little while. Grab a mince pie, warm some mulled wine, and join Friar Tuck on this snowy adventure!
“The tale is well told with a steady pace, action aplenty, and a deeper look into the character of Tuck. Couple that with a fine Christmas feast and you have a 5 star winner.” ★★★★★ Amazon review
