"Whitta is a master of suspense. Abomination grabs you and doesn't let go." --Hugh Howey, New York Times -Bestselling Author of Wool

He is England's greatest knight, the man who saved the life of Alfred the Great and an entire kingdom from a Viking invasion. But when he is called back into service to combat a plague of monstrous beasts known as abominations, he meets a fate worse than death and is condemned to a life of anguish, solitude, and remorse.

She is a fierce young warrior, raised among an elite order of knights. Driven by a dark secret from her past, she defies her controlling father and sets out on a dangerous quest to do what none before her ever have--hunt down and kill an abomination, alone.

When a chance encounter sets these two against one another, an incredible twist of fate will lead them toward a salvation they never thought possible--and prove that the power of love, mercy, and forgiveness can shine a hopeful light even in history's darkest age.

In my opinion, not worth the time...

An excellent fantasy novel in the medieval era with echoes of Grendel.

The writing style was excellent and the characters' dialogue was not in any pseudo historical dialect; it was easy to read and the characters were easy to relate to.

The premise was good and the novel was exciting.

I'm hoping for a sequel.
