HENRY VIII: WOLFMAN

DIVORCED. BEHEADED. DIED. MAULED. SAVAGED. SURVIVED?

Henry VIII was the best and bloodiest King ever to have sat on the throne of England. This fast-paced, exciting, gory, inventive and just plain gross retelling of his reign will bring to light the real man behind the myth.

When it came to his size, Henry VIII was known for being larger-than-life, with a fearsome temper and bloodthirsty reputation to match; more beast than human, some might say…

Be dragged kicking and screaming back 500 years into Tudor England…

Reviews

'Moorat has draped his very funny tale of the marauding undead over a solid frame-work of historical detail ... As with the Austen adaptations, it is the women who are bold and quick-witted enough to take on the monsters, a nice reversal of the passive victim role traditionally handed to young women, in horror as in history'
<i>Observer</i>
'Moorat infuses his tale with enough bravura and over-the-top action to lift it above a horde of similar projects; readers able to stomach the deliriously bloody goings-on will find plenty to enjoy' Starred Review, 'Pick of the Week'
<i>Publishers Weekly</i>
'Fab, gory, inventive and fun'
Sarah Broadhurst, <i>The Bookseller</i>
'Moorat crowds so many characters - historical, fictional, supernatural - onto his Victorian stage that the effect is that of a lost Gilbert and Sullivan operetta written under the influence of opium, absinthe and black pudding.'
<i>Washington Post</i>
'Wildly entertaining...Moorat's story rises above mere gimmick thanks to hearty amounts of English history, all given supernatural twists'
<i>Los Angeles Times</i>
