Black Death is ravaging England…
The year is 1348 and the Black Death is ravaging England. For Brother Maurice, a monk and physician, the disease is the most terrifying he’s ever seen. But Maurice soon learns of an even more deadly threat: the exanimate Mortecarni. After his first unexpected encounter with the creatures, Maurice is pulled into a world of savagery and secrecy.
As he travels across the country, investigating both the plague and the Mortecarni, Maurice questions how such unholy suffering is possible. When his own family is struck down, his beliefs falter. Can he regain his faith and save both England and himself?

And once you finish ‘The Mortecarni,’ continue your medieval journey with…
St. Brice’s Day, England, Anno 1002. At the order of King Aethelred, thousands of Danes are murdered in a frenzy of ethnic cleansing. Outraged, the Danish king, Sweyn Forkbeard, swears he will take Aethelred’s head, and his crown.
But Sweyn needs allies. Chief amongst his supporters is Aelfgifu, an English noblewoman and head of a once great family. She has her own reasons to hate Aethelred and as a pagan, she is sympathetic to the Danish cause. When Aelfgifu marries Sweyn’s son, Canute, war is inevitable.
But if Aethelred is weak, Emma, his Norman queen, is not. And she will stop at nothing to destroy the woman at the heart of the Viking army.
“This book has it all…heroines, villains, battles, love and hate! Adventures and political scheming abound! And, importantly for me, no anachronisms. Kelly Evans knows her history and is a gifted storyteller.”
“This is a fine debut novel, very well written and a smooth read.”

About author Kelly Evans:
Born in Canada of Scottish extraction, Kelly graduated in History and English from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. After graduation Kelly moved to the UK where she worked in the financial sector. While in London she continued her studies in history, focussing on Medieval England and the Icelandic Sagas (with a smattering of Old Norse and Old English).
Kelly now lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband Max and two rescue cats (Bear and Wolf). She still works in the financial sector as a trade technology project manager. Her short stories have been published in numerous magazines and E-zines as well as a horror anthology, where her Fourteenth Century horror story was received with enthusiasm.
When not writing Kelly enjoys reading history books, silversmithing, playing oboe and medieval recorder, and watching really bad horror and old sci-fi movies. She is currently working on the second book in her Anglo-Saxon series, set in the years prior to the Norman invasion.
“I can’t remember *not* ever being interested in history, when I was five I wanted to be an Egyptologist when I grew up. But I got serious about it, especially medieval history, when I was dating my now husband and we were visiting his family in Wales. I picked up a copy of “The Very Bloody History of Britain (Without the Boring Bits)” by John Farman and I think that was it, I was hooked. After reading Sharon Kay Penmans “The Sunne in Splendor” there was no going back!”
