MELBOURNE, Wednesday, 24 January 2007 –
Munich, 1923. Two years have passed since Ed Elric's sacrifice ripped him out of his world and into ours, separating him from his younger brother, Alphonse. In that time, his research into rocketry has allied him with Alphons Heiderich, who oddly resembles his brother. When Ed saves a quiet Gypsy girl with the power to read minds, he is pulled into a plot by the Thule Society and the burgeoning Nazi Party that could drag both worlds into war!
