Inhaltsangabe: Unspeakable powers plot to bring on the final apocalypse, and only one man, Dr. John Dee, and his assistant, Edward Kelly, stand in their way. Travel with the greatest magician of the West and work magic to save the world, in The Tortuous Serpent by Donald Tyson.
The Tortuous Serpent is an exciting novel set in 1587. In these turbulent and eventful times:
·The Spanish armada is poised to invade England. Some advisors urge an attack, but John Dee tells Queen Elizabeth I to wait. What will happen? What does the armada represent?
·The Inquisition that held most of Europe in a grip of fear has faded—but many still fear that if you make one false move you could find yourself at the not-so-tender mercies of one of the official torturers. Why did this craziness infect so many people?
·On the spiritual planes, the fate of the world hangs in the balance as angels battle demons over the souls of humanity. Who will win the battle? Why does the battle go on at this time?
This is the background to an amazing story by one of the best-known researchers into the history of magic. As you read The Tortuous Serpent, you will learn the terrible truth: a group of diabolical fanatics—the Sons of Coronzon—is responsible. They have stolen an ancient grimoire of unspeakable power that can throw open the gates of hell itself. If they succeed, they will usher in a blasphemous dark age ruled by no less than the perverse Queen of Demons, Lilith—the Tortuous Serpent herself.
Only John Dee holds the key to stopping this unholy plan—but, in a final confrontation with the forces of evil, can he defeat an enemy capable of possessing the soul of the one person he trusts most? To find out, you must get The Tortuous Serpent.
Inhaltsangabe: John Dee, the greatest magician of the Elizabethan Age, and alchemist Edward Kelley follow the trail of a stolen Gnostic grimoire across a politically divided Europe. This grimoire is an occult cipher used to unlock the gate of the abyss and release the Death-Dragon Coronzon and the goddess of lust Lilith upon an unsuspecting world. Although the events are fictitious, the personalities of Dee and Kelley, their wives, magical work, and the times in which they lived are accurately set forth.
