Publisher's Summary

December, 1323 AD - Holly and ivy decorate the houses while voices are raised in song, but the Christmas cheer is tempered by terror this festive season, as demons haunt a small English village. Strange thefts; cloven hoof-prints in the snow; a house burned to the ground. Something evil stalks the icy streets of Brandesburton and former mercenary Tuck must find out what, before it's too late. As he sets out to solve the mystery the friar prays his faith will protect him. His faith...and his great quarterstaff, for he knows full well - the Devil makes no deals.... This brand new novella from the best-selling author of the Forest Lord series will delight and entertain historical fiction fans looking to escape the madness of Christmas shopping for a little while. Grab a mince pie, warm some mulled wine, and join Friar Tuck on this snowy adventure!

Wonderful story for Christmas

This story gave me more of a feeling of Christmas than any other. This is a perfect Christmas tale about a character who has been fondly thought of for centuries. I liked the medieval superstitions which gave the story lots of atmosphere. It is warm, witty, and touching, with some appropriately included violence. The hardness of life comes across as the writer puts you right there in 14th century northern England. Despite seven hundred years of distance in time, you feel the characters are folks just like us. I felt the cold and the hardship with them. The author's comments at the end of the story were uplifting and funny. I will be playing the story to my family today, and I am sure it will become an annual tradition in our house, as the writer suggests. Merry Christmas.
