The Enterprise of Death, Paperback


As the witch-pyres of the Spanish Inquisition blanket Renaissance Europe in a moral haze, a young African slave is unwillingly apprenticed to an ancient necromancer.

Her tormentor has bound her with a curse forged from blood and spirit.

But salvation could lie in arcane writings her tutor has hidden on the war-torn continent ...Jesse Bullington casts his own macabre spell over the late middle ages in a work that becomes compulsive, amusing and horrifying in quick succession. Praise for Jesse Bullington's previous work includes: * 'Darkly funny, profane, erudite, bawdy, and wickedly original' Jeff VanderMeer * 'As the antithesis of conventional fantasy, this is a tour de force' Telegraph * 'A quite extraordinary piece of the books of the year' * 'Raucous, lewd, and grisly' Esquire
