The ancient walls of St. Gregory’s the greatest abbey to rise upon the alpine crest joining Italy and France, hold secrets and a darkness that no man or woman should explore. Throughout its great hall and innumerable chambers, corridors, and catacombs lay a great repository of weapons born in all the wars ever fought for, and against God — and one weapon of immeasurable worth.
An ancient evil has darkened the abbey halls and turned the once-peaceful monastery into a murderous battleground. The abbey monks and a group of visiting tourists find themselves locked in a hopeless battle with an unstoppable force. Cut off from the outside world by a sinister snowstorm, the abbey’s defenders must fight for their survival and for their very souls.
But from among the defenders arises an ageless holy warrior who alone wields the skill and power to stem the bloody tide of evil. In the epic battle that will decide the fate of all involved, the warrior must not only struggle against a familiar foe of mythic might but also rediscover the faith and love that have carried him through a thousand battles.
