Synopsis

Back in the mists of Britain's untold history is Brutus, last of the Trojan kings, who was armed with the knowledge of how to construct a magical Labyrinth that could rival the might of the gods. Together with the alluring sorceress Genvissa, Brutus almost succeeded in creating the Labyrinth. But thwarted by Brutus's wife Cornelia, they became trapped in a cycle of death and rebirth that will not end until the Labyrinth is completed. Ages pass. Time and again the players come close to victory, but none succeed in the fulfilment of power. Now these soul travellers arrive as the English are in a mighty civil war that threatens to destroy the nation. A great pestilence is upon the land and the newly restored Charles II sits upon the throne trying to hold chaos at bay. He is one of the major players in this drama. And he is not alone.
