Some who are familiar with the history of Western Europe may have heard about the Dutch Revolt in the 16th century, but it is much less known that before this event the Netherlands already shared a history of strife and faction wars. One such conflict, that has been carried over several generations, was that between the factions known as the Cods and the Hooks in the medieval County of Holland.

This historical fiction tells the story of its leading actors, their search for power, respect, wealth or just peace and quiet. 

It will take you into the 14th century Low Countries. Experience the rise of the cities, the counter of the nobility, the growing of central power, the first battles of the Hundred Years War, The Black Death and the complicated politics of the Holy Roman Empire. 
Holland stands as a midget among giants and must prey from the powerful in order not to get trampled.
