Overview

When history repeats itself, evil has a second chance!

"When medieval reenactors 'The House of Alderford' attend the grand re-opening of Castle Clastermackle, little do they imagine the living history event they are attending will become just that - living history. Renovation works have breached the seal of magical protection, releasing an ancient and evil presence which now seeks a host in order to carry out hateful vengeance.
Also in attendance are notorious biker gang 'The Plague'. Leader, Nicholas Maiden, pursues a witness to the castle. By his hand a man lies in a coma and Nick intends to ensure his involvement in that crime is kept from the police. He already suspects other gang members of plotting to oust him but finds his leadership jeopardised further by an inconvenient reunion with long estranged sibling rival Gerald, head of the Alderford household.

As day turns to nightmare, will the brothers' Maiden put aside their differences to unite against the greater evil, or will greed and betrayal lead to the destruction of all? Whatever the outcome, one thing is for certain - the darkness is coming!"

Sword and sorcery; Motorbikes and magic - This supernatural fantasy is set against a backdrop of medieval battle reenactment.

Inspired by the hobby of reenacting, 'Tin Men' incorporates a wealth of anecdotes collected over the years and binds them together in an intriguing storyline with dark supernatural undertones.

Strong moral inclusion offers the reader a true insight into the essence of reenactment; loyalty, pride, tradition - values which really do spill over into the everyday lives of the participants. A story of treachery, tragedy, love and revenge, it culminates in a grim battle between the powers of darkness and light, yet remains light-hearted with a few laughs along the way. But make no mistake - the darkness is coming!

About the Author

Paul Watts is a graphic designer & illustrator by day, and by night (and during some lunch times) a writer. Primarily writing for his own amusement, he decided to share 'Tin Men', his first novel, with the world so that perhaps he would advance from writer to author. 'Tin Men' is inspired by his ten years involvement in medieval battle re-enactment which he is still known to dabble in.
