A Gothic Thriller


Ten chosen monks have the honor of being brought blindfolded to the most sacred place–a hidden temple called Cryptica. The threshold to paradise they expected soon turns out to be an endless labyrinth where darkness and doubts await. Strangers to each other, the men begin to question who their companions really are, and why exactly they have been chosen. When monks start dying and disappearing, a game of survival begins. Caught in a web of fear, possibly lured into a trap, the brothers must learn whether there is a murderer hiding amongst them…or does the endless night enshroud an even greater threat?

As these holy men struggle to survive this dark test of faith, each is forced to come face to face with their secrets. Can they solve the riddles and achieve their hidden agendas? Is there an escape out of the maze? And can they find redemption before all is lost…?
