Prospero and Roger Bacon set out to find an object and a book. They go to a graveyard and discover that the grave holding the body of Melichus, an evil wizard, actually contains the body of one of their servants. They become certain that Melichus is alive; when they go searching for him the entire earth becomes colder and is covered with snow. They are unable to enter the area where they believe Melichus is holed up, but they meet a monk herbalist who lets them in through a back entrance. Onward to the search for the evil wizard, the book, and the object they believe he has. This book is humorous and dark as well.
