Rex Mundi Volume 1: The Guardian of the Temple
A quest for the Holy Grail unlike any you've ever seen begins here—in a world where the American Civil War ended in a stalemate, the Catholic Church controls Europe, and sorcery determines political power!
When a medieval scroll disappears from a Paris church, Dr. Julien Saunière investigates, uncovering a series of horrific ritual murders and an ancient secret society. Julien cannot let these shadowy figures retreat into the darkness, lest they take up their killing once again. His investigation turns into a one-man quest into the bizarre secrets of the Catholic Church.
