The Domesday Book (No, Not That One)
Works of: Fiction
The time in Hastings, England is 1066 precisely. Duke William of Normandy may have just won the most recent battle in the area but he has mislaid something precious; something so precious no one must even know it is missing.
He carefully assembles a team for a secret mission of recovery, (the assembly is careful, not the team), and he sends them forth to the north.
But his secret is already out and another band has the treasure in their sights.
In a race across a savage land, against the clock and against one another, two forces hurtle towards a finale of cataclysmic proportions; all in 29 concise and entertaining chapters.
Find out what the treasure is. Find out who gets it first. Find out what happens to everyone afterwards. Find out some other stuff. Containing several facts and a brief appearance by a monk; it could have happened, it might have happened… but probably didn’t.
Out of the Scriptorium comes an extraordinary history.
A book so epic it has a map.
