A series of grisly murders brings Lara into conflict with a sinister Alchemist from the past, and a secret alliance of powerful individuals shrouded in mystery. At the center of these mysteries are the Obscura Paintings - five 14th century pieces of art that the Alchemist is desperate to repossess. Accused of the murder of her one time mentor, Werner Von Croy, Lara becomes a fugitive on the run. Pursued by the police, she follows the Alchemist into a dark world of blood, betrayal and vengeance where it is up to her to defeat this unholy alliance, and stop them from unleashing their incredible powers on the world.
In an attempt to clear her name, Lara has no other choice but to confront the Cabal, whose ultimate goal is world domination and immortality, with the assistance of an ancient biblical race, the Nephilim.
But this time, Lara's not on her own. During her exploits, she encounters a kindred spirit in Kurtis Trent, a hardened adventurer like herself, who is in pursuit of alchemist Eckhardt. In her struggle to unravel the trail left by Von Croy, Lara becomes involved in underworld deals, grotesque murders and the dark side of an advanced form of alchemy.
