After twenty years wandering as a mercenary, Beowulf returns home to Herot to pay his respects to the man who raised him: Hrothgar, the recently deceased Thane. However, his gesture of goodwill opens old wounds: Beowulf is met with cold steel leaving him no choice but to fight his way into the Great Hall to be heard by the new Thane Rheda, wife of Hrothgar, whose appointment has caused controversy within Herot and afar.
With its defences fast fading, Herot falls under attack by the terrifying monster Grendl and when Rheda’s loyal servant is killed, Beowulf vows to remain until the enemy is routed out, justice is served and Herot is safe once more. It’s a race against time for Beowulf as he seeks to protect the town and catch the killer, be it human or beast…
