A devastating plague is sweeping the continent of Greater Virren...
Its origin is unknown, its dominance of the land near complete. In times of grim desperation, pestilence has given way to superstition, and the citizenry are now more divided than ever.

Yet the city of Rothenberg remains inexplicably untouched...
The Council has grown convinced of their immunity, even as their neighbours are consumed before them. As the world teeters on the brink of collapse, a zealous religious order has re-emerged. They claim to have discovered the source of the plague… but can they be trusted?

The plague will never reach Rothenberg...
Katarina Lorenz, a noble of the city and veteran of the civil war that shook the continent, remains unconvinced. She conspires to leave the city with her companion Tannhauser, to find out what's really going on beyond its walls.

THE RITUAL is the first in a trilogy of gripping high-fantasy novelettes. The debut possesses all the beloved hallmarks fans of the genre will recognise, but is distinguished by its gritty atmosphere and confrontation with some of the most unsettling chapters of human history.

This is a short sample of some of the work I did with Citadel Studio for Sentinel Creatives. Available on Amazon and Audible: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JR4SVY9/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0
