Plague Land

Plague Land: A NovelPlague Land: A Novel by S.D. Sykes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oswald de Lacey is the youngest son of a land owning family, never expected to be Lord of the Manor but when his father and older brothers are killed by the plague, he is summoned back from the monastery he’s been placed in since he was seven. He is young and inexperienced and to be honest a bit of a wet blanket, so when some murders happen on his land he is ill equipped to deal with it. But as the book progresses, Oswald becomes more experienced and he grew on me and by the last third of the book there was enough twists and turns to keep me quite gripped.

I also found it interesting to read about life after the plague had decimated half of the population. Life went on more than perhaps life would today if such an event were to occur but the issues such as finding enough people to work the land, were dealt with well in the book.
