Twenty-first-century scientist Frank Scanlon and a sixteenth-century monk are thrown together by a series of horrific events. Their lives become inextricably bound up with the enigmatic Hrault – a man with exceptional fighting skills and even more deadly persuasive powers. Hrault seeks power beyond anything else, and uses evil as a practical tool to achieve his ultimate goal.
The mysterious Namestone and relics from the ancient monastery are the source and substance of immense forces, perhaps even of the cosmos itself. Loyalty, trust and friendship are stretched to their limits as frank faces his own battle of good over evil.
