Sycorax, Paperback / softback Book

Sycorax Paperback / softback


In the credulous squalor of Medieval Yorkshire, a peasant girl is accused of being a sorceress.

The suffering inflicted upon her by male superstition sparks a spectacular and terrifying retort which initiates the legend of Sycorax.

Many years later, the story is recounted for us by Edmund, a flawed monk at Byland Abbey, who undertakes to write a history of the witch as a penance for his lascivious fantasies.

In the process, Edmund uncovers a brutal and eery tale in which he becomes fatally involved.
