A contemporary Gothic tale of blood and sex and corruption.
Ankerita Leighton-Mynde has died saving the life of her best friend, but a promise she made to an enchantress from the sixteenth century is drawing her back from her new reality.
The world she returns to has changed. Dark entities are asserting their will on much of the population, and the spectre of the Nazis is rising again as Britain approaches the momentous events of the vote regarding continued membership of the European Union and its subsequent repercussions on the rest of Europe.
Blinded, and with only a minor demon to act as her eyes, Ankerita is thrown into a power struggle between the factions for and against. However, dark forces are rising on both sides. The actual vote is merely an excuse for the Strangers to resume their age-old battles.
It is said that King Arthur will reappear when Britain faces a final crisis. That was thought to be a myth, but behind every myth there is some truth. Ankerita follows a trail to search for his remains, and the spirit of a Dark Ages chieftain rallies to her call. They descend into the limbo world of Kathartirion to rescue the witch and try to tackle the situation, but there are many more entities in there, desperate to get out. All the evil, which was supposed to be held for eternity, is released.And all the time, the Buchenwald Bell tolls out its call for faithful and faithless alike, waking the Strangers with the Eyes of Men from their millennia of inactivity.
