Cast into a violent and bloody world of murder, Hereward, a novice monk, must deliver the Holy Gospel of Lindisfarne - a book of great beauty and power - to the safety of the Iona monastery, while being pursued by a Viking death squad hell- bent on its capture. On his way to the monastery, he meets a fierce and skilled swordsman who answers his prayers and dedicates his life to protecting Hereward while he delivers the book. In the midst of their journey, they are confronted by Vikings ready to kill in order to get what they want, leaving Hereward and his protector at their mercy.
"The Darkest Day" follows a young monk Hereward, forced to flee the Viking's bloody and brutal attack on Lindisfarne Abbey in 793AD. Hereward and the elderly Abbot Athelstan escape the slaughter and mayhem on the holy isle and spirit away the most cherished religious icon of its age, 'The Lindisfarne Gospels'. Pursued by a Viking death squad hellbent on retrieving the book, not just for its gold but for its powerful hold on the hearts and minds of the people of the land, the Monks must cross the medieval badlands and take the Gospels to safe haven of the Monastery of Iona. The Vikings chief Hadrada's pursuit of the Monks and their prize is relentless and furious following the bloody death of his son but after weeks at sea, not all his men see eye to eye with his revenge-driven campaign. Aided by Aethulwulf, a Saxon warrior sent to protect the book, the band conspire to evade the pursuing Norsemen and survive an apocalptic land ridden with witchcraft, plague and bandits to reach their goal, but a chance encounter with a bound and blindfolded peasant woman threatens to split the group with mortal consequences.
