England, 1644. Young Ellie Harewood falls victim of renowned Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins, and is left to die in the depths of a winter’s forest. As Ellie begins to pass to the other side she is rescued by an old hag, one fully immersed within the world of witchcraft. Sensing great power within the young woman, the hag barters with Samael, the spirit who arrives to ferry Ellie cross the plains of existence, and promises a greater amount of human life delivered by Ellie’s own hand if her life be spared. 

With one month to make good on the promise, Ellie is released to the guidance of the hag, before Samael returns to claim her soul. But, after finding of her escape, Hopkins and his company of paranormal hunters must track them down and deliver Ellie to London at the King’s request, or face a trial of fraud brought about by the most powerful people in England; Parliament. 

Can Hopkins find and kill the accused witch he failed to execute, or will Ellie master the art of paganism and witchcraft in time to save her life?

When news of an electrical disturbance reaches the Millers Fall Police Department, no one imagined the fate of the officers sent to investigate. Unable to contact their colleagues, the remaining officers plan their own search, but stop as the night sky turns to an amber haze. With five officers missing, Sheriff Mason Palmer is forced to investigate. 

Anomalies befall the town, worrying its residents. With no explanation of these events, Palmer’s only lead appears with Mitchum Hoyt, the leader of a backwoods cult living in isolation. As the investigation deepens, Palmer realises the relevance of Hoyt’s preaching. They’re coming….

In one single day the entire UK changed, and could never revert back to normality. Bombs detonated in every major city across England, releasing the little known ‘Non Compos Mentis Virus,’ and with it destroying seventy-five percent of the population. However, the virus didn’t kill those who contracted it, but instead infected their minds and senses, turning them in to violent psychopaths that can feel no pain and also gave them a new goal in life; to destroy anyone who does not carry the same virus. Bucky Jackson awakes from a minibus crash that killed most of his school cricket team. Rescued by his friend Johnny, the remaining kids and teachers seek sanctuary inside a hardware shop in a small, Northamptonshire town.

As the days pass, they decide to try for a safe zone at a football stadium a few towns away. With every step danger lurks, not only from the zombies that swarm the area in their thousands, but more so from the handful of people who survived the virus outbreak. As their journey continues, Bucky is looked to as a leader to help them reach their destination. They encounter killer clowns, hordes of the undead and an organised crime outfit as well as dealing with treachery within their own group. Bucky must learn to unite his team and teach them to rely on each other, as their journey may be longer than anticipated….
