Overview

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.

Author Biography: Donald Tyson is a Canadian from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Early in life he was drawn to science by an intense fascination with astronomy, building a telescope by hand when he was eight. He began university seeking a science degree, but became disillusioned with the aridity and futility of a mechanistic view of the universe and shifted his major to English. After graduating with honors he has pursued a writing career.

Now he devotes his life to the attainment of a complete gnosis of the art of magic in theory and practice. His purpose is to formulate an accessible system of personal training composed of East and West, past and present, that will help the individual discover the reason for one's existence and a way to fulfill it.
