Summary
"1914. In the French city of Arras, a Father is brutally murdered. The Catholic Inquisition--still powerful, but now working in the shadows--sends its most determined and unhinged of Inquisitors, Poldek Tacit to investigate: his mission to protect the Church from those who would seek to undermine it, no matter what the cost. As the Inquisitor strives in vain to establish the truth behind the murder and to uncover the motives of other Vatican servants seeking to undermine him, a beautiful and spirited woman, Sandrine, warns British soldier Henry Frost of a mutual foe even more terrible lurking beneath the killing fields, an enemy that answers to no human force and wreaks its havoc by the light of the moon. Faced with impossible odds and his own demons, Tacit must battle the forces of evil, and a church determined at all costs to achieve its aims, to reach the heart of a dark conspiracy that seeks to engulf the world, plunging it ever deeper into conflict"--

Summary
It's an alternate version of 1914, and the violence of World War I is stirring up werewolves in Arras, France, escalating the horrors of war with supernatural violence. Meanwhile, a string of murders, whose victims are all Catholic clergy, prompts the Inquisition to send a Polish priest named Poldek Tacit to investigate. In addition, British Lt. Henry Frost struggles to cope with the venality and idiocy of war itself. Combining history and supernatural terror into a complex literary novel, The Damned is the 1st volume of a planned trilogy. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
