It is the year of the Great Conjunction. The streets of London are rife with predictions of horrific events to come. Some believe—even hope—that the Great Conjunction foretells the death of Queen Elizabeth, as her throne is constantly threatened by her cousin, Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots.

Fear takes a vicious grip on the court when the body of one of the queen’s young maids of honour is discovered inside the palace walls with astrological symbols cut into her flesh. Rumours of black magic and witchcraft abound. Queen Elizabeth turns to her personal astrologer, Dr. John Dee, and a mysterious medium who appears to foretell the murder, to interpret the dark omen.

As this climate of terror intensifies in London, Giordano Bruno—renegade monk, philosopher, scientist, poet, and magician—returns to the city, where his suspicious mind can’t help but see evidence of a possible conspiracy behind the rumours and end-of-days prophecies.
