A thrilling and intoxicating journey to a land of legend, where nothing is quite as it seems. . . . Something evil has come to reside in a castle by the chill waters of the North Sea: men disappear and are found as horribly wizened corpses, knights ride out and return under an enchantment that dulls their minds. Both the townspeople and the court under Sir Odinell's protection live in fear, terrorized by forces beyond human understanding. But rumors of a wise woman blessed with mysterious powers also swirl about the land. The call goes forth, and so it comes to be that young apprentice Hob and his adopted family--exiled Irish queen Molly, her granddaughter Nemain, and warrior Jack Brown--are pitted against a malevolent nobleman and his beautiful, wicked wife. Richly set in the inns, courts, and countryside of thirteenth-century northwest England, "The Wicked" is a darkly spun masterpiece that will leave fans of epic fantasy thirsty for more.
