From the Publisher:

A shadow looms over Hrothgar’s kingdom: The godless monster Grendel stalks the land in the dark of night and slaughters all he meets. Grendel kills the king’s most fearsome warriors in a single bite, and devours their bodies before returning to his dank lair in the marshes. For a dozen years, no man has been able to stop his terrifying attacks. Until Beowulf.

A warrior hero from across the sea, Beowulf is determined to defeat the beast and earn everlasting fame. But even if he suceeds in besting Grendel, he will have to face an even more horrible creature living in the marsh, one who is smarter, bigger, and more dangerous than Grendel—the monster’s mother.

Written more than a thousand years ago, Beowulf is the first epic work in English. A timeless tale of heroism in the face of a wild and unknowable evil, the story of Beowulf has been the inspiration for many other tales, from J.R.R. Tolkien to modern fantastic films.
