Set in 1199 AD: a veteran of the Third Crusade, Comte Ludovic Parvel of Claremont, is in a desperate quest for the identity of the First Matter; the substance required to start the Alchemical process to create the Philosopher’s Stone, in the hope that with this power he can re-equip the armies of Christendom.
Meanwhile, Aeden, a young Saxon amnesiac, is being escorted from England to Vichy in the hope that he will discover his identity, the secret behind his fighting ability and the strange tattoos on his arm.
Does Aeden have anything to do with the First Matter?
