Edithna is a maenad living in a Christian nunnery in 890AD to hide from her true nature. After the gruesome death of a travelling monk Edithna embarks on a dangerous adventure in the nearby forest, leading to an encounter with the undead and her own uncertain future.

The story serves as an in introduction to my world of maenads, who were the female followers of the god Dionysus, god of wine, theatre and ritual madness.

The maenads feature prominently in my upcoming series Forgotten Gods, available soon.
