The Owl Killers by Karen Maitland
England, 1321 – Welcome to the Dark Ages
In the heart of the countryside lies an isolated village, where pagan Owl Masters rule through fear, superstition and murder.
When a group of religious women ill-advisedly settles outside the village, they awaken dangerous jealousies. Why do their crops succeed? How do their cattle survive the plague? Are they concealing a holy relic which protects them from harm?
The Owl Masters cry ‘Witchcraft’ and sharpen their talons. As torment and hellfire rain down, the women must look to their faith to save them from the darkness spreading across the land.
Fear is a question of what you believe.
And death alone the answer.
