Book Excerpt :

A gripping conspiracy thriller series for fans of Scott Mariani and Dan Brown. On a trip to Prague to visit an exhibition of precious objects of alchemy, Lorenzo Aragona finds himself caught in the dark murder of an old antiquarian, also fond of mysteries. He is suddenly catapulted into a hidden and disturbing world, run by a mysterious brotherhood that will force him to return to Naples. Helped by the Masons in the deciphering of a series of puzzles, but under the blackmail of shady figures who are threatening to kill him and those he holds dearest, Lorenzo finds himself in front of a real alchemic puzzle, which brings him back to studying the experiments of the famous Prince of Sansevero, who lived in Naples in 1700. The recovered traces, however, lead him away from his city, to France, looking for a stunning cathedral, containing nine mysterious mirrors. But what is this cathedral and what powerful secret is it hiding? What readers are saying about THE ALCHEMIST'S GIFT: 'If you are at all interested in alchemy, freemasonry, conspiracy with a good dose of murder, then Martin Rua's books are a must read'

Book Short Summary:

Excitement reigns in the second book of the epic western fantasy Tales of the Outlaw Mages series by author Amy Campbell. When the sins of the past demand payment, his magic is the price. Blaise Hawthorne never wanted to hurt anyone, and he certainly didn’t want to become a weapon. When using his dangerous magic to free his outlaw friends destroys an enemy fortress, the young mage is imprisoned for his crimes. Abused and at the mercy of his tormenters, Blaise’s only ally is a duplicitous man he’s not sure he can trust. After escaping his cruel upbringing, politician Malcolm Wells had everything—or so he thought. He didn’t count on falling for Breaker Blaise Hawthorne. And it’s all his fault that Blaise has been captured as a war criminal. The Breaker is running out of time, and Malcolm’s money, power, and influence have proven useless to win his freedom. When a magic-slinging outlaw storms into town, Malcolm seizes the opportunity to form an uneasy alliance. The pair hatch a bold gambit to free Blaise, but their enemy is one step ahead. At the mercy of Malcolm’s dark past, everything they fought for unravels. All the magic in the world may not be enough to save any of them from the nightmare to come. Blaise's continuing tale is perfect for readers who love offbeat epic fantasy in a western setting, reluctant heroes, magic cowboys, and found family with a dash of pegasus, magic, and LGBTQ+ representation.

Book Short Summary:

"Mother Ocean Daughter Sea Strength Unchanging Strengthen Me" The Shari'a are an ancient race. They are un-warlike and they are ruled by their shamanic witches. The Allemanii are more recently arrived in their locale and are both awed and made fearful by the magical powers of the witches. After generations of peaceful coexistence, a cataclysm occurred out of nowhere and the Allemanii turned on their neighbors and hosts, slaughtered most of them and scattered the survivors. Suddenly, to be a Shari'a is proscribed and to be caught practicing their magic is to be hunted to the death. In MOTHER OCEAN, DAUGHTER SEA, Brierly was a secret healer who was betrayed by someone she had trusted. In SEA LARK'S SONG, exposed as a Shari'a healer, on the run and now aware of a secret truth about what had happened to her people--and in love with one who may put her life at risk even more--Brierly must hide in the mountains and sort her way through a tangle of secrets as she attempts to bring her lost people, and their magical, healing power, back into the world. Her true love faces an almost overwhelming challenge: he must struggle against centuries of fear, hatred, secrecy and conspiracy to turn his own people away from the commitment to destruction. If he does not, not only will Brierly and her people's survival be at risk but his own people may end up facing a similar fate, as destructive as the one they had wrought upon the Shari'a.

But the dragons have awakened, the hole in reality is expanding, and the shackles that kept the half-gods controlled have been broken. The Black Moon lives on in the body of Berren Crowntaker, and has taken control. With an army behind him, the dragons above and the Dragon Queen at his side, he goes to war with his brother. The worlds are turning, and only one thing is sure - there will be an ending. THE SILVER KING is the triumphant conclusion to one of the most brutal and wide-ranging fantasy series of recent years.

Book Short Summary:

The unsung and remarkable stories of the women who held London's East End together during not one, but two world wars. _____________ Minksy, Gladys, Beatty, Joan, Girl Walker. While the men were at war, these women ruled the streets of the East End. Brought up with firm hand in the steaming slums and teeming tenements, they struggled against poverty to survive, and fought for their community in our country's darkest hours. But there was also joy to be found. From Stepney to Bethnal Green, Whitechapel to Shoreditch, the streets were alive with peddlers and market stalls hawking their wares, children skipping across dusty hopscotch pitches, the hiss of a gas lamp or the smell of oxtail stew. You need only walk a few steps for a smile from a neighbour or a strong cup of tea. From taking over the London Underground, standing up to the Kray twins and crawling out of bombsites, The Stepney Doorstep Society tells the vivid and moving stories of the matriarchs who remain the backbone of the East End to this day.

Book Short Summary:

An accomplished novel from a talented writer, Letters to the Lost is a stunning, emotional love story. Iona Grey's prose is warm, evocative, and immediately engaging; her characters become so real you can't bear to let them go. I promised to love you forever, in a time when I didn't know if I'd live to see the start of another week. Now it looks like forever is finally running out. I never stopped loving you. I tried, for the sake of my own sanity, but I never even got close, and I never stopped hoping either. Late on a frozen February evening, a young woman is running through the streets of London. Having fled from her abusive boyfriend and with nowhere to go, Jess stumbles onto a forgotten lane where a small, clearly unlived in old house offers her best chance of shelter for the night. The next morning, a mysterious letter arrives and when she can't help but open it, she finds herself drawn inexorably into the story of two lovers from another time. In London 1942, Stella meets Dan, a US airman, quite by accident, but there is no denying the impossible, unstoppable attraction that draws them together. Dan is a B-17 pilot flying his bomber into Europe from a British airbase; his odds of survival are one in five. In the midst of such uncertainty, the one thing they hold onto is the letters they write to each other. Fate is unkind and they are separated by decades and continents. In the present, Jess becomes determined to find out what happened to them. Her hope—inspired by a love so powerful it spans a lifetime—will lead her to find a startling redemption in her own life in this powerfully moving novel.

Book Short Summary:

The Coveted Recipe may be a part of that story, only steeped in the Dark Ages. I am not sure what it is and where it belongs. Is it an adult fairy tale? A sad tragedy of times past? Or a parable of human nature that in changing remains the same, where innocent people are caught in webs of misplaced fears, laws, and regulations? It came to me on a sunny day in Berlin as I sat in an U-Bahn that passed along the broken graffiti-smeared Berlin Wall, thinking how it had locked people inlike the Iron Curtainand how many suffered and died behind those walls that had cut through lives and loves, leaving trails of guilt and sin on all sides. And then I thought about punishments, such as witch hunts and dungeons and prisons and wars. Seeing the devastation through a foggy window, I hoped that the train was speeding into a new and better age . . .

Book Short Summary:

The Diary of an Alchemist: In its attempt to demonstrate the applicability of the fundamental principles of Mysticism to the things of the physical realm Alchemy apparently failed and ended its days in fraud. It appears, however, that this true aim of alchemistic art - particularly the demonstration of the validity of the theory that all the various forms of matter are produced by an evolutionary process from some one primal element or quintessence -- is being realised by recent research in the domain of physics and chemical science. The object of the alchemist’s search was to satisfy their material needs, their intellectual capacities, and their spiritual yearning. Alchemists of the nobler sort always made the first of these objects subsidiary to the other two". There is a distinct difference between what may be called esoteric and exoteric alchemy. The latter has an outer and more direct approach in which transmutation is attempted through the employment of purely physical forces. This has been the main attraction for the quacks and the curious, and has succeeded in concealing (mercifully) the esoteric approach to alchemy. The true alchemist is someone capable of radiating his essence, thus affecting the centermost being of those about him. This work, biographical in nature, reveals the author's own struggle in working the basic theme of alchemy, which is the acceptance and expression of Cosmic Fire in the service of humanity. This is the path of a fire-god .... his birth, initiation into and baptism by Fire. The alchemists saw the likeness of it in so many chemical reactions in their laboratories that they were struck by certain parallels. After all, they were witnessing the birth of modern chemistry with all its inorganic phenomena of amalgams, silver, gold and mercurial platings, without any of the rationale which a chemist possesses today. This thoroughly researched volume contains many excerpts from the author’s diary, images, lists and drawings.

Book Short Summary:

What distinguished the true alchemist from the fraud? This question animated the lives and labors of the common men—and occasionally women—who made a living as alchemists in the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Holy Roman Empire. As purveyors of practical techniques, inventions, and cures, these entrepreneurs were prized by princely patrons, who relied upon alchemists to bolster their political fortunes. At the same time, satirists, artists, and other commentators used the figure of the alchemist as a symbol for Europe’s social and economic ills. Drawing on criminal trial records, contracts, laboratory inventories, satires, and vernacular alchemical treatises, Alchemy and Authority in the Holy Roman Empire situates the everyday alchemists, largely invisible to modern scholars until now, at the center of the development of early modern science and commerce. Reconstructing the workaday world of entrepreneurial alchemists, Tara Nummedal shows how allegations of fraud shaped their practices and prospects. These debates not only reveal enormously diverse understandings of what the “real” alchemy was and who could practice it; they also connect a set of little-known practitioners to the largest questions about commerce, trust, and intellectual authority in early modern Europe.

Book Short Summary:

Redefines the British historical novel as a key site in the construction of British national identityThe British historical novel has often been defined in the terms set by Walter Scott's fiction, as a reflection on a clear break between past and present. Returning to the range of historical fiction written before Scott, Reinventing Liberty challenges this view by returning us to the rich range of historical novels written in the late eighteenth-century. It explores how these works participated in a contentious debate concerning political change and British national identity. Ranging across well-known writers, like William Godwin, Horace Walpole and Frances Burney, to lesser-known figures, such as Cornelia Ellis Knight and Jane Porter, Reinventing Liberty reveals how history becomes a site to rethink Britain as 'land of liberty' and it positions Scott in relation to this tradition.Key FeaturesRecovers the richness of the historical novel and history writing before Walter Scott, including the contribution of women writers to this debateExplores how historical fiction probes anxieties at the rise of commerce, the question of empire, and radical political changeRewrites our understanding of Scott and his relation to the earlier British historical novel

Book Short Summary:

On the planet Sententia, the other side of the Milky Way: Eleven year old alchemist Gwendal Tink, growing up in the sheltered cosiness of his guardian’s cottage is abruptly thrown into a world of conflict and chaos brought on by the nearing empowerment of the EEFTO party. The Everyone Each For Their Own policy cannot prevail.., history must not repeat itself. The gentle happy world the Founders sought to establish from the wreckage of Mother Earth must be protected. Together with his fiery friend Horatia Black and the sage magician Magnamus, Gwendal travels through forests and jungles, down a terrifying waterfall and across ghostly marshes on a quest to rid the world of the menace of greed and violence and find his true purpose in life: To travel back to Mother Earth and rekindle the magical realm from its origins. The humans need to see more magic. The gift of alchemy given to him by the Korrigan imps will help him but only he can make the right choices. This is a fairy tale of our times encapsulated in an imaginary world in outer space. The story echoes the tradition of fairy tales, approaching some of the difficulties youth can face – being alone, being different, being at odds with society’s fluctuating values. It questions how we move forward in times of conflict, what is really important to us, and our ability to find consensus when faced with moral questions. What is our relationship to the things we value? How will we act when history repeats itself?

Man's new tools for the manipulation of genetic codes are pushing us in new directions. The story of two families unfolds as a new human species of infinite variety and strengths is born into the mid twenty-first century. After a vulnerable attempt at Washington politics, Alex Claiborne, long haunted by a violent and horrifying dream, becomes ensnared in a web of law enforcement and the court system. He and his family finally move to Brussels where his daughter, Laura, becomes involved in genetic research projects supported by the United Nations. Alex eventually uncovers the source of his nightmares with the help of a young psychiatrist. There is a delicate thread linking him to a conspiracy that includes genocide for profit. The Powell family has been part of the Washington elite for generations. Senator Powell and his family share, with his two longtime friends, an empire that extends across government and industry. They wield weapons of war and control genetic information gathered in schools, prisons, and hospitals for a generation. Manipulation of genetic codes and promises of immortality cause these opposing forces to collide, impacting not only their lives, but forcing the human race in unknown directions. It isn't evolution, slow and methodical, but revolution, immediate and profound.

The first in a gripping conspiracy thriller series for fans of Scott Mariani and Dan Brown. A dark figure. A secret code. A battle between good and evil... Years ago the Knights Templar developed a secret code. A code so secret that only one man could remember it. The code lies in the hidden recesses of Lorenzo Aragona's memory. The alchemist has always known it, but, until he crosses paths with a beautiful but brutal Russian spy, he does not realise its significance. In a race against the clock from Naples to Kiev, Lorenzo uncovers an ancient history involving Nazis and Freemasons, secrets and spies. He must remember the code, unlock the Baphomet and take control of The Guardian of the Threshold. The lives of the Pope, his dying wife and all of mankind are at stake and only Lorenzo has the power to save them... What readers are saying about THE ALCHEMIST'S CODE: 'A great idea: has anybody ever imagined waking up and figuring out that their life is nothing but a fictional play? Rua describes this feeling the way all of us would imagine it. I read it in one night. Overwhelming! 5 stars because I cannot give more' 'The author masters the suspense and the reader encounters thrilling mysteries step by step, like the pieces of a puzzle' 'I did not know this author before I read The Alchemist's Code and I have to admit that he is a pleasant discovery. The story captures you from the first page and the reader can enjoy the story although it is all about mysteries, esotericism, codes, and... that's it, I'm not going to reveal anything else, just read it!'

Book Short Summary:

“If you really want to learn the basic principles of practical alchemy, Frater Albertus’ Alchemist’s Handbook is literally is worth its weight in gold.”—from the foreword by Israel Regardie, author of The Golden Dawn: The Original Account of the Teachings, Rites, and Ceremonies of the Hermetic Order The Alchemist's Handbook has long been considered a modern-day classic on the actual practice of alchemy since its first publication in 1960. The book still stands as a groundbreaking work presenting in clear, concise language a practical manual of working knowledge that was formerly handed down only under oath of secrecy. The scope of alchemical work is to provide both a means to synthesize all the other sciences and the necessary training of the intellectual and spiritual faculties. “Hermetic philosophy, with its practical arcanum,” writes Frater Albertus, “repeats itself over and over again in the ancient axiom ‘As above, so below. As below, so above.’" The Alchemist's Handbook discusses in detail: The basic fundamental principles of alchemy. A guide to the formation of an inexpensive home laboratory with illustrations of the necessary equipment. Step-by-step instructions for the work of the Lesser Circulation, the alchemical transformation within the plant kingdom. “The teachings of Frater Albertus are part of a lineage that traces back to Rosicrucian sources and much earlier and The Alchemist’s Handbook is still the best introduction to that lineage. If you feel the call of Alchemy and want real information on the subject, this is definitely the book you will want to read, reread, and read again. It may just turn out to be the book that changes your life.”—From the foreword by Robert Allen Bartlett, author of Real Alchemy: A Primer of Practical Alchemy First published by Weiser Books in 1974, this new Weiser Classics edition includes a new foreword by Robert Allen Bartlett, author of Real Alchemy.

Book Short Summary:

Scientist, mathematician, and court astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, John Dee is also one of the sixteenth-century's most renowned alchemists, driven by a passion to fathom the elemental secrets of the cosmos. But when his reckless assistant, Edward Kelley, succeeds in using a crystal sphere to summon angels, Dee is catapulted into an awesome struggle that may extinguish the light of reason forever. One of the spirits invoked is a cunning demon who takes possession of Dee's young daughter, Katherine, and shows Dee a frightening vision of his own future. Terrified by what has been foretold, Dee abruptly decides to close his house in London and flee to Europe with his long-suffering wife, Jane, and their two young children. Their desperate flight brings them at last to the city of Prague--a center of culture, knowledge, and learning, both sacred and profane, a gateway between the Eastern and Western worlds, and also, it is whispered, a door between our world and the world of the spirits. There, in the city's ancient streets, Dee encounters the mystic Rabbi Judah Loew, who enlists his aid in the creation of a Golem--a man fashioned from the clay--to defend the city's Jewish Quarter from persecution. And he asks Dee's help to avert a impending crisis that threatens to engulf the world. For ancient legends say that the fate of the world rests on shoulders of thirty-six righteous men. And if one of those righteous men dies before his time, the world will end and dark spirits will remake it in their own image.
