He is England's greatest knight, the man who saved the life of Alfred the Great and an entire kingdom from a Viking invasion. But when he is called back into service to combat a plague of monstrous beasts known as abominations, he meets a fate worse than death and is condemned to a life of anguish, solitude, and remorse.
She is a fierce young warrior, raised among an elite order of knights. Driven by a dark secret from her past, she defies her controlling father and sets out on a dangerous quest to do what none before her ever has - hunt down and kill an abomination...alone.
When a chance encounter sets these two against one another, an incredible twist of fate will lead them toward a salvation they never thought possible - and prove that the power of love, mercy, and forgiveness can shine a hopeful light even in history's darkest age.

"Whitta is a master of suspense. Abomination grabs you and doesn't let go." (Hugh Howey, New York Times best-selling author of Wool)
The story was interesting enough to keep me listening throughout but was predicable and a little shallow. The conclusion was unsatisfying - it smacked of deus ex machina - and the writing had echoes of a film script rather than a book.
"cool concept. typical execution."
standard 'good' and 'properly written' story. interesting premise but plot was the same as a hundred others.
narrator didn't use enough voice variety to differentiate between characters for my tastes.
"very good story, well narrated"
Initially the story was a bit slow and little action, but it took a couple of chapters for me to get pulled into the characters. Once the characters got fleshed out you are hooked. It is always amazing getting pulled in primarily by a character's thoughts and words rather than their actions.
usually I am not one to read, watch, or listen to anything scary but this is one story that kept me hooked and waiting to unravel all is secrets. A very excellent read, the best I've had in a while!
