“To those who betrayed me, who stole everything from me, I will give death and despair unto death. Your wives and children, your loyal followers, one by one they will fall to my charms.”

While vacationing on the moon, Albert, a young Parisian nobleman, meets the Count of Monte Cristo, a fabulously rich aristocrat from the far reaches of the galaxy. Fascinated by the count’s sophistication and intelligence, Albert is unaware of the older man’s dark purpose: to enact revenge for a terrible act of betrayal committed against him twenty-five years ago. Soon, all of Paris, including Albert’s own mother and father, will feel the terror of the count’s vengeance.
Albert De Morcerf crosses paths with the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo, awed by his sheer aura, but too ingrained within his innocent nature that the Count has other plans. Why does the Count know the secrets of the rich as if he wishes to disclose them for the world to see.
