King Edward the Confessor lies dying, having neither produced an heir nor named a successor, and the struggle for the English throne is on.Edwyn, the son of a peasant sheep merchant, is away on a journey to York when he learns that Scottish raiders have sacked his village and killed everyone, including his mother, his sister, and his father, Wulfric.

What Edwyn doesn’t know is that a demon spirit has entered Wulfric’s body and has begun using it to satisfy its lust for sex, power, and above all, blood.With nowhere else to go, Edwyn takes refuge at an old English abbey, where an ancient book, the Codex of Qedesh, has been hidden away for generations and is now under the protection of the abbot, Prior Cuthbert, who had long dismissed it as no more than a bizarre tale.

But when bodies turn up bearing the hallmarks of a vampire attack, the secrets of the Codex come horribly to life, and Edwyn, Cuthbert, and the beautiful serving girl Molly find themselves swept up in a larger, more deadly power struggle that threatens to turn loved ones into mortal enemies and humans into bloodthirsty beasts.Kato Sakros, a vampire as old as civilization itself, holds the powerful Earl of Northumbria, Tostig Godwinson, in his thrall and is using him in his search for the Codex of Qedesh, which Sakros has been seeking relentlessly for centuries.

Under Sakros’s influence, Tostig’s tyrannical rule has inspired a revolt among the Northumbrian nobility and put him at odds with his own brother, Harold Godwinson, whose likely ascension to the throne is now threatened by rebellion in the north, even as William, the Duke of Normandy, threatens to invade England from the south.When the rebellion escalates into a massive, bloody uprising, Harold must choose whether to side with his brother and face a full-scale civil war, or to forsake his own flesh and blood and make common cause with the rebels. Harolds decision sets the stage for the battle that will plot the course of English history for the next thousand years.
