As evil ravages the north and the dead walk, all eyes fall to Arn… The apprentice journeys south, home to the College, unaware of the dark events that transpired in the High Passes after his departure. His leg in ruins, and haunted by watching shadows, the College council in Arn awaits him, but he does not travel south alone.
Arnulf and his warriors must travel to Arn also, with tidings for the king of the risen dead and the terrible curse which has destroyed all that he knew. Arnulf seeks vengeance upon the College, but must choose wisely if he is to save his son.
Meanwhile in the west, Bjorn and his strange Wildman companion report back to High Lord Archeon at Oldstones with grim news of cannibal Stonemen encroaching from the Barrens, but is embroiled in news of war and invasion as Archeon requests his service once more.
In the capital sickness awaits them all, Nym has fled to the city and must now continue her struggle for survival on the plague ridden streets of Arn, keeping all who she cares for safe from the halls of Old Night.
The many threads of this Saga converge on the city of Arn, but amid plague, invasion and terror, a greater darkness is looming. Dark forces are seeking to unleash evil upon Arnar, honour and renown is all, and sword, axe and shield is all that stands between the living and the grasping hands of the dead.
The Dead Sagas
A Ritual of Flesh
Damn that was truly bloody epic, where to start, A Ritual of Flesh has everything, from Cannibalism, the blood plague, and if things couldn’t get any more Grimm for the people of Arnar, the cursed and the dead have risen.
A Ritual of Flesh is the second book in the Dead Sagas series, Lee C. Conley’s writing and story weaving are incredible. The way you are sucked in from the start, feeling every horror and blood curdling moment each character is put through as old dark night reigns terror on the citizens of Arnar.
Lee is ruthless with his characters, and the worldbuilding and plot are second to none. If you are looking for blood and gore and flesh eating zombies or just fantastic storytelling at its finest, then you have come to the right place, look no further than the Dead Sagas.
R.J Bailey is one of my favourite narrators, the life he gives to each character in the book with his arrangement of voices. The performance he has given each book is absolutely amazing. Lee couldn’t have picked a better person for this epic series.
Lee C. Conley takes you on a very dark adventure. The northern Lords Arnulf, Fergus, and their men of arm’s travel to the capital with hope to find answers and take vengeance on the college that has caused all the nightmares, darkness and death that has succumbed to the north.
But things are only about to get worse as old dark night grips the lands of Arnar in its icy clutches, bringing terror and fear that is the absolute stuff of nightmares.
The anticipation for waiting on book 3 A Ritual Of Blood and wanting more of this world has me blood lusting for more. I truly implore that if you haven’t checked out these books yet, then I very highly recommend that you do.
P.S. Don’t read alone..😱🧟♂️🔥
