THE FALLEN WORD
Another England. A fanatical sect, The Holy Exaltation, have taken power. Their harsh rules forbid free thinking, art, music and poetry. Beauty IS sin. The only hope of salvation lies with the poets. These wordsmiths have formed into gangs and in verbal duels, battle for supremacy under he cover of darkness. Words have become valuable and - like rays of light and colour in the gloom - save souls and awaken minds but there is a problem...When a mysterious casket is left in the possession of one of the gangs for 'safe keeping', they do not fathom the full horror of it's contents: for this is the Fallen Word, a word that once uttered, has dire consequences. Following the disappearance of one of the gang members, this lethal weapon falls into the hands of the enemy. Never let it be said...
