July 15th, 1099. As Jerusalem's walls fall to the victorious Christian army and the massacre of townsfolk begins, a dying Fatmid soldier tears out his heart and pledges his soul to a vision of the demon goddess Ammut.
Ammut gives him time. Time to avenge the wife and children whose lives he took to spare them from rape and mutilation. Time to exterminate the descendants of Tancred de Hauteville, the Frank commander to whom he surrendered and by whom he believes he was betrayed.
Nine hundred years later, Izz al-Din is back, but his bloody pursuit of Charles Hauteville and his son Marcus is thwarted by the creation of five blastocysts made, supposedly, with DNA taken from a Templar relic present at the Crucifixion, and the appearance of a Machiavellian apparition and a ruthless Vatican envoy.
The theft of the blastocysts and the discovery of a pregnant minor lead to a violent inversion of roles and a race to find and destroy Izz al-Din before he can birth the Antichrist.
