Ranulf, a young English knight sent to recapture Grogen Castle from Welsh rebels, comes into conflict with his leaders over their brutal methods.

Unbeknownst to any of them, the native druids are planning a devastating counter attack, using an ancient artifact to summon an army that even the castle’s superstitious medieval defenders could never have imagined.

Grogen Castle, seemingly impregnable to assault, armed with fiendish devices to slaughter would-be attackers in their multitudes¬ is besieged by countless, tireless soldiers forged from bone and raddled flesh. As lives are held in the balance, Ranulf must defy his masters and rescue the daughter of his enemy, but hope lasts only so long as the stronghold holds out against the legions of the angry dead…

About the Author:

Paul Finch is an award-winning horror film writer, ex-cop and historian. His novel Cape Wrath made the final ballot of the Bram Stoker Awards and his short story, ‘After Shocks’ won the British Fantasy Award. Stronghold is Paul’s first novel for Abaddon.

Proclaiming an individual as ‘the future of horror’ is a chancy business at best. However, unless I’m very much mistaken, the future of horror is bound to be much brighter due to the presence of Paul Finch.”: John Pelan: US editor of the best-selling Darkside series

Paul Finch is unique. He creates modern thriller and crime stories with supernatural overtones one minute, and sparkling traditional horror stories the next. One of the most exciting story writers in the business today.”: Masters of Terror: International horror website
