Publisher's Summary

Bohemia. 1370. A lost soul named Galien leads a band of hardened mercenaries on a mission for Mother Church. But in the dark forests of central Europe, a darker secret awaits. The Sunday Times best-selling author Giles Kristian (Lancelot, The Raven Viking Trilogy), takes us on an unnerving ride into fear and paranoia, bloodshed and redemption.

Brilliant

I just wish the story was longer. I highly recommend it. Giles is consistently good, and the narration is excellent.

Giles write's a great story.

I've listened to all his book that are available on Auidobooks. This is one of the best. Hope he wrights some prequels.

Great narration for this short, but fun horror story. I wished it was longer, but oh well

SOOO good!

I think this is the first actual review I have written on Audible (I rate every book however), but I though after listening to this short story I just had to!
I am a big fan of Giles Kristian, having read all of his books physically, but due to this being a short story it is only available digitally and I don't own a kindle, I like to hold an actual book!
The story itself is very well written, its very engrossing, I was lapping it up, the narrator is fantastic.
Being a short story it is very fast paced, which kept me all the more hooked in the story!
It is not for the faint hearted at all, this is a dark and brutal story.

My advice is to set yourself a couple of hours aside to listen to this in one go, you will not be disappointed.

Terrifying, disturbing, brilliant

What starts as a fairly standard story about a mercenary company swiftly descends into brutal nightmare and brilliantly-written horror. Pro-tip; don’t fall asleep listening to this audiobook (like I did). The reader’s horribly convincing demonic guttural growl will wake you up and it will be enough to make you hide under the covers and want the light on

Fun spooky tail

I must admit i started this book at 4 stars based purely on it being Giles Kristian and Philip Stevens. Love their previous work.
I enjoyed it very much, something a little different from Giles’ usual work. I now feel the need to go google this castle!

Historic fiction horror

Such a gruesome, brutal, and terrifying story by Giles Kristian and delivered with absolute conviction by Philip Steven. Consuming and captivating listen—the story was visceral.

Enjoyable romp but need to cleanse your space afterwards

GK and PS make a powerful combo and don’t realise how powerful they are with this story of darkness and demonic energies. As a spiritual person I felt listening to this made me quite vulnerable to psychic interference. It is very scary and calls in considerable demonic archetypes. I strongly suggest reciting a few prayers or cleansing your space or whatever it is you need to do to raise your frequency again after listening to this. It is DARK. It is still affecting me several days later. Part of me wishes I hadn’t listened to it, or had turned off when they descended the hole. I will now up my cleansing to clear the energy of this short story.
