William Stacey (williamstacey) Black Monastery
Beware the foe behind the strange threshold.

In 799 A.D. Viking warband leader Asgrim Wood-Nose sails his prized longship Sea Eel south along the coast of Frankia to raid the island of Noirmoutier—the Black Monastery.

Banned from his homeland following a night of rage-filled murder, Asgrim has been declared outlaw. Unless he can raise a princely blood debt, he will never see Denmark again. When a Saracen merchant brags of a great treasure hidden deep within the monastery, Asgrim realizes fate is offering him a chance to go home again. But Asgrim has led his men into a trap: somehow, the monks of the Black Monastery have released a dark supernatural force, an eastern demon that wears the skins of its victims. Hunted by this monstrous evil and tormented by the ghosts of those he has slain, Asgrim’s only ally becomes another lonely soul, a Frankish woman abandoned by her people under suspicion of witchcraft.

The Viking north clashes with the supernatural east in an epic historical fantasy tale of heroism and redemption in the face of unimaginable horror.

Voted 'Outstanding in Genre' by Red Adept Select.
A former soldier, William Stacey served his country for more than thirty years, including multiple combat tours in Bosnia and Afghanistan. William loves exercise and all things martial and is a black belt in karate.
Black Monastery is his debut novel.

Christopher Preiman | 347 comments I'l be honest. The book sounds interesting but the price is a bit more then I am willing to pay for a new author with only one revue on amazon and none here on goodreads.
Perhaps when a few more people give it a look, or the price drops a bit.

Hello Christopher,
you're not looking at the print version are you? As it is quite a bit more expensive than the ebook?

At any rate, it's free for the first five people who sign up to read it at this thread in the "Making Connections Group" as an ARR:

So, there's that. Otherwise, I'll probably do a free 3-day at some point in the next month or so.
