Quotes

[first lines]
Wolfstan: The fumes of the dead are in the air like poison. The plague, more cruel and more pitiless than war, descended upon us. A pestilence, that would leave half of our kingdom dead.

This was not God's work, but devilry. Or witchcraft. But our task, to hunt down a demon, was God's cure.
