Publisher Comments:

EMBARK ON A TURBULENT JOURNEY THROUGH A RAVAGED COUNTRYSIDE . . . WITH ONLY LIARS FOR COMPANY.

The year is 1348. In a world ruled by faith and fear, nine desperate strangers, brought together by chance, attempt to flee the certain death that is rolling inexorably toward them. Each traveler has a hidden gift, a dark secret, and a story to tell….

From Camelot, the relic-seller, to Cygnus, the one-armed storyteller—from the strange, silent child Narigorm to a painter and his pregnant wife, each guards secrets closely. None are as they seem. And one among them conceals the darkest secret of all—propelling these liars to a destiny more perilous than any of them could imagine.

I found this book on this site and took a chance with it. I love reading historical fictions- especially books set around the Black Plauge time period. This book has to be my FAVORITE book now. I've passed it on to a few of my teacher friends and every one of them has had the same opinion as me. This book is such an easy read with many interesting characters to keep you entertained. The ending itself will keep you thinking for awhile! I ususally describe this book as Canterbury Tales meets the Bubonic Plague. I highly recommend this book!
