The Plague Charmer

The Plague Charmer

A dark read… fear and hysteria are portrayed with claustrophobic skill’ The Times

The Plague Charmer, by Karen Maitland, Queen of the Dark Ages and bestselling author of Company of Liars, will chill and delight fans of Ken Follett’s A Column of Fire and The Witchfinder’s Sister in equal measure.

1361. An unlucky thirteen years after the Black Death, plague returns to England.

When the sickness spreads from city to village, who stands to lose the most? And who will seize this moment for their own dark ends?

The dwarf who talks in riddles?
The mother who fears for her children?
The wild woman from the sea?
Or two lost boys, far away from home?

Pestilence is in the air. But something much darker lurks in the depths.
