When modern warfare meets medieval, a tyrannical monster of a man takes control of England. A former member of the SAS closes himself off from the apocalyptic world until its savagery finds its way to his doorstep. He will be forced to make a choice, to abstain, or intervene, but what he doesn't know is that the oppressive king is his former brother in arms and best friend, long thought dead.
The only other survivor of the raid is Graham’s best friend, Kade, the antagonist of the story. Kade has spent years suppressing a murderous monster that continually tries to claw out of his soul. As Graham resigns from the SAS, Kade feels abandoned, and the beast within him is unleashed.
Graham discovers the plague that has been sweeping his country. He sees the brutality and suffering of the English people. After coming upon a town ravaged by Kade and his army, Graham makes a choice to intervene as Kade’s atrocities shake him out of apathy.
Graham is seriously injured in battle but continues to fight. Will he defeat the evil monster who has taken over his long-time friend, and in doing so save both his family and his country, or will he lack the resolve to do all that is necessary?
