Genres: Drama, Fantasy, Historical, Horror, Mystery, Supernatural
During the time when Louis XV still ruled France, a certain woman was found dead in the coffin floating through the Seine river. D'Eon, the woman's brother, determines to seach for the killer of his sister, Lia.
But there are some strange movements in France. And things become more strange when Lia's soul enters D'Eon's body.
The story takes place in the 18th Century, on the eve of the French Revolution. It is the era of King Louis XV. Versailles glitters and its full glory and the great river Seine sees beautiful Paris in a ghastly chaos. One day at dawn, a lady's body is found in a casket floating along the Seine.
Her name is Lia de Beaumont, and there is a mysterious word on the lid of the casket: PSALMS.
Lia's younger brother, D'Eon de Beaumont, is a member of the secret police and is investigating the mystery of a series of disappearance of young women. Now his sister has become one of the victims. And as D'Eon goes after the case, a history of taboos opens its door...
The story is loosely based on the historical figure Le Chevalier D'Eon, who lived in the middle of 18th Century pre-revolution France under the reign of Louis XV
