In the dark days of the Inquisition, a cursed Spanish prince must wrestle with the ravenous demon that lives inside him. At the height of Europe's bloody 16th century, as Spain suffers under the iron cruelty of the Inquisition, a different sort of horror plagues the royal house of King Alonzo. A witch's curse directed at the heartless liege has borne bitter fruit, damning the innocent offspring of el rey. The brooding and sensitive son and heir to the throne, Don Rolon, wanders the great halls of the ancestral home carrying the weight of his unloving father's crimes in his bones and blood. Torn between his deeply felt religious beliefs and a gnawing hunger, he must somehow deal with a looming threat far more powerful than his murderously jealous brother and the manipulations of a corrupt and self-serving officer of a malevolent church. For when the full moon rises, Don Rolon will be forced to surrender to his unholy needs as the beast within him is unleashed once more. A chilling, atmospheric, and enthralling novel of destiny and darkness, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's The Godforsaken ingeniously evokes the myriad horrors of a terrible epoch. This classic werewolf tale is brilliantly reimagined by an acclaimed Grand Master of dark fantasy, a true giant in the field of historical horror fiction.
