‘God, have pity. Help us.’
Edith screamed as her head was forced back by the maelstrom that roared around them. She fought to close her eyes, to shut out the snarling face feasting upon Jago’s swollen tongue.

1911: Edith Sanguine holds a playful séance that goes terribly wrong.
Present day: Drusilla Blood, a disgraced archaeologist with a disastrous love life, plunges into a raging fire at a pagan festival and escapes the searing flames miraculously unharmed.
Two young women, separated by generations, share a sinister fate; possession by an ancient being, a sadistic and powerful entity bent on destruction and revenge. Can Drusilla Blood end the malignant legacy that Edith set in motion, hindered by those that wish to control its power for their own ends?
An epic action packed race against time that travels through the darkness of Pagan Iron Age sacrifice in the desolate moors of Northern England, the heat of the Great War Egyptian desert, back to the present day and a world oblivious of the horror that threatens to engulf it.
