Through a Distant Mirror Darkly: Five fantastic tales of the Middle Ages by Mark Lord

Not all is as it seems in this collection of dark tales from the Middle Ages.

Mark Lord, the author of By the Sword's Edge and Hell has its Demons, weaves five Medieval short stories to excite, scare and enthral you. From the vicious struggle of the Hundred Years War, to legends of werewolves and rumours of necromancers and ghosts, to the bitter conflict of a castle under siege, the action and adventure never stop. These five fast-paced short stories will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning every page until you reach the end.

In "Stand and Fight" Richard Hope must overcome treachery to defend the castle of Montmal from the French. Jake, an English archer in "Chivalry" must choose between his comrades and the path of honour. In "Bird Talk" a young priest discovers the woman he loves may also be a necromancer. Frederick II, the "Stupor Mundi", the wonder of the world, is haunted by the ghost of his dead chancellor. And in "Bisclavret" a French noblewoman discovers there is more under the skin of her English husband than she could imagine.
