Tread Gently Amidst The Barrows by Jack Rollins

Tread Gently Amidst The Barrows

A horrific tale of monstrous trolls in Victorian Sweden

Prepare yourself as the progress of mankind and technology trespass into the world of the mythical in Sweden. A series of night-time disappearances among the workforce of railway engineer Oliver Stroud threaten to bring the construction of a new railway bridge to a standstill as local superstitions give rise to unrest and desertion. Stroud is left with no choice but to investigate an ancient burial site to bring closure to the matter once and for all but there is no peace to be found among the barrows of Old Uppsala, for neither the dead, nor the creatures of myth who live among them.

“…capture[d] the Victorian gothic feel perfectly.”
