The Secret Zombie History of the World ( Tomes of the Dead )

The Rotting Tide of History

Viking Dead: Northern Europe, 976 AD. Bjólf and the Viking crew of the ship Hrafn flee up an unknown river after a bitter battle, only to find themselves in a bleak land of pestilence, where the dead return as draugr to feed on the flesh of their kin. Terrible stories are told of a dark castle in a hidden fjord, and of black ships that come raiding with invincible draugr berserkers. And no sooner has Bjólf resolved to leave than the black ships appear…

Stronghold: Ranulf, a young English knight, is among the force sent to capture Grogen Castle from Welsh rebels.

Here is a chance for glory – and wealth. Very soon, however, Captain Havelock will come to realise that theirs are not the only two warships in the southern ocean. An enemy thought long since vanquished has risen from the deeps…
