Richard John Denningabout this book: Between 2nd September and 5th September 1666 a great fire raged through the heart of London destroying 13,000 houses and dozens of churches and trade halls. After the calamity it would be blamed on the French or the Dutch both of whom the English were at war; on catholic papist terrorists or anti monarchists. In the end an investigation revealed that the cause was a careless baker forgetting to put out his fire.
The real truth would have been impossible for the people to accept. To have told them that a demon had laid imprisoned under London for 300 years and that the fire began as a result of a conflict between rival secret societies - one bent on destroying the demon, the other on ruling the world alongside it: well that would have been impossible for them to believe.
For Benjamin the truant schoolboy and his friend a young thief it seemed very possible alright - for they lived right through it.
The Last Seal is historical Fantasy set during the Great Fire of London.
