A powerful and atmospheric medieval thriller from a stunning new talent

England, 1235, and Brother Petroc is living a simple life as a novice monk. Struggling to keep his soul fairly clean and worrying mostly about resisting the local girls, he inadvertently stumbles headlong into a vicious trap.

Framed by a sinister Templar Knight for the brutal murder of a church official and accused of the theft of a priceless relic, he is forced to run for his life. But when his best friend Will is killed by the chasing knight, Petroc's flight becomes a quest for his restitution.

Trusting his fate to an enigmatic relic-hunter and scoundrel, he must dodge the long arm of the church and somehow get revenge on the man who ruined his life - all the while avoiding the pitfalls and perils of love for a beautiful Greek princess...
