The Dark Side of the Fylfot is an imaginative re-telling of the Pied Piper of Hameln story. It is set in mediaeval Saxony, in a time of pestilence and superstition, when the Church teaches that disease is the result of sin and people fear science as akin to black magic.Gretl is a child when the Great Mortality - the Black Death - strikes Brunswick, and not all her grandfather Sano's learning can protect the family from tragedy. And when Gretl becomes a victim of the bitter and lustful Akhtar, Sano must confront the past and his own guilt to heal her hurt.The Black Death returns. Gretl and her father are determined to discover the cause and find a cure. To do so, they must face ignorance, superstition and religious dogma. Not only that - still casting his malevolent eye on the family is Akhtar, intent on pursuing his mad, perverted ambition.But who is Akhtar, and what is the origin of the strange power he wields over people?And will Gretl learn too late that all magic is in the mind?
