HISTORICAL THRILLER

Kidnapped and sold as a slave by Vikings, Inga is bought by a strange chatelaine called “The Black Princess”. What is the secret of this solitary woman reigning as a master over a ruined manor where she takes in disabled children abandoned by their family?

Inga feels that a mystery lies in the place. The teenagers she takes care of are whispering very strange stories about a creature haunting the undergrounds. A murderer who, like the ogre in the tales, comes every new moon to take fresh flesh.

Who‘s hiding under the mask of a barbaric God to commit murders without being punished? What‘s happening in the secret of the oubliettes? This medieval thriller takes the reader in a whirlwind of mysteries, superstitions and dark passions.
