distance. Don't look him in the eye. Feed him and leave.
Michael D'Augustino is a priest
in the time of the Inquisition. Marked as weak for his refusal to torture those
charged with sorcery, heresy, devil worship or worse, he's given another task.
Feed the prisoner in the cell in the darkest corner of the dungeon. With the
edict comes a set of instructions.
Ever obedient, Michael does
exactly as he is told. Until the night his charge doesn't eat and Michael has
to enter the cell to find out why. Instead of the beast he believes to be
imprisoned there, he finds a man. A broken, tormented man who asks for help.
But all is not as it seems and,
before the night is through, Michael will be changed forever.
