Delgado de la Sol is a common man living in the Holy Roman Empire in the year 1414 when he is plucked from obscurity in fulfillment of a prophecy written centuries earlier. He learns, through his new friend and mentor Aaron, of his royal ancestor King Solomon of Jerusalem. Given the power equal to that given to Solomon by God, he must learn to use hisnewly acquired magical arts in order to thwart Zadoc, the powerful minion of Satan. Along the way to what could be the final showdown with Zadoc, Delgado enters the medieval religious and political battle known as the Great Western Schism, uses his budding powers to move into the future and secure the throne for Isabella and Ferdinand of Spain, and helps to unite Spain in fulfillment of the Prophecy of Solomon.
