Description "Wittenberg, Germany, 1581. Meet John Faustus, greatest genius ever. At only twenty two he's read every book in the world. But the eyes of this restless young man are haunted, and when candle light burns past midnight in his attic, envy turns to malice. And meet Mephistophilis, provocatuer, cynic. Satan's Personal Assistant. It's a repetitive game, the soul trade, and these days it's a buyer's market. But this isn't your average purchase. The titanic clash of these two opposites explodes over medieval Europe. Impetuous and passionate Faustus shatters every barrier his wily demon can create."
