The Song of Montsegur

THE SONG OF MONTSÉGUR
by Sylvie Miller & Philippe Ward
adapted by Brian Stableford

cover by Aurelien Hubert

The two gigantic clawed hands came down on the priest's head with sledgehammer force. The Drac let out raucous cries as it struck with ever-increasing force. It dug its claws into his flesh, shredding his muscles and breaking his bones. Brother Bruno did not even have time to howl, nor to pray.

A team of spelunkers is found dead in mysterious circumstances in the shadow of the once-proud Cathar redoubt of Montségur, in Southern France. What mysterious treasure were they seeking--and did they find it? A ruthless battle over long-buried secrets is going to pit the Roman Catholic Church against an ancient secret society and descendents of the Nazis who once looked for the Holy Grail in Montségur, with the very future of Humanity at stake...

Published in France two years before the world-famous Da Vinci Code, The Song of Montségur is an award-winning, fast-paced supernatural thriller which blends elements from French history with modern-day conspiracies.
