The world has been wracked by an apocalyptic war. In the aftermath, a dedicated religious group known as the Azarans has left the mainland behind to seek a place from which to rebuild humanity. Across the Loa Neshi Sea, they find the paradise they've been looking for on the island continent of Lur.
Esoteric doctrine and radical awakening clash in this dynamic tale of how two people, Jendru Amdin and Jor Alesh Melva, discover their true nature and each other amidst events that will shatter everything they thought they knew. Jendru is soon to take his vows and become a monk in the psychedelic religion of Azara. Jor Alesh is the ascended Alcian of Jurnda, a secular metropolis. She's come to the sacred pyramid temple city of Azar to observe the unexpected return of the heretical Darsulans. Two hundred years previously, the upstart group challenged the sacred doctrine of Azara and left the religious refuge, disappearing across the island. Now they're coming back and no one knows why.
It's Seyloq Surya, a reclusive apostate, who brings Jendru and Jor Alesh together. With this unusual man, who claims to be God, they experience a powerful new medicine, inviting them to challenge everything they've ever thought or believed. In the process, they begin to discover themselves, what it means to follow their hearts, and trust in the infinite.
Beyond Azara is an exciting mix of nondual philosophy, entheogenic experience, sensual awakening, and universal romance that pierces the veil of illusion and reveals the nature of being like nothing else you've read.
"A combination of Brave New World, 1984, and The Teachings of Don Juan. A recommended read for those interested in 'after Armageddon' and the survival of the human spirit in spite of war, despots, and religious philosophies out of touch with human needs."

"With his latest work of fiction, Martin Ball continues to astound us with his prolific output and his on-going conversation about all things entheogenic"

"If you thought the sex, drugs and rock and roll of the '60s was something, wait until the seductive sexual and entheogenic juices role right off of the pages of this post-apocalyptic magnum opus, right into your nether region, sending you into a world where you'll cum to understand yourself. And the best part is, this book's details of experience and methods are the real deal."
- Jan Irvin, author of The Holy Mushroom
