The unspeakable horror unfolds in this astounding tale of the last stand of the Grenadiers of the Guard de la Libertié.
1783 -During the time of The Reconciliation during the latter half of the 18th Century, trouble brews in the streets of Paris. The crops have been failing, and the farmers resort to superstition to explain their plight.
Amongst their blasphemous utterances, some claim that diseased plants have been growing in the darkest forests .... and spreading out towards the farmlands .. leaching poisonous filth and corruption into the very soil of France. Bespoiling the crops, and providing nesting havens for unwholesome blackbirds.
In the darkest shadows of the night, some townsfolk can be heard to utter the unmentionable name of the infamous Marquis de Chenoncoix ......
|A Portrait of the infamous Marquis de Chenoncoix ... a man who is best forgotten for the sake of all that is decent.|
It has been over 60 years now since his ghastly demise, and his name has been struck from memory. All those who fell under his power all those years ago were burnt at the stake during The Change.
Why then does his name emerge once more, like bloated carrion that floats to the surface of an unhealthy pond ?
