Henri is used to the quiet routines of the Abbey of St Luc. He’s shy and solitary, until Micah – the wild troublemaker with the voice of an angel – sweeps into his life. Micah may not know how to comb his hair, or wait his turn, but he certainly knows how to stir things up. Henri has never had such adventures.
And then comes The Plague. With the tail of a scorpion and breath of fire, it decimates every village and town until nothing can ever be the same. Together, Henri and Micah and their Company of Fools discover the soul-soothing power of laughter. But will it be enough?
