The Invisible Histories of the Spiral Mountain; or The Hymns of Melchizedek (2nd edition, 2014)
A love that changes everything…
After a series of unfortunate events, a broken-hearted man searches for meaning in one of America’s most immoral cities: Detroit, Michigan. His life changes when he meets an enigmatic figure: a teacher who initiates him into a secret brotherhood of knights where overcoming fear, challenging sexual taboo, and facing death become the prime directives.
Through his metamorphosis, two worlds collide. A fantasy realm conquers waking life as the transformation reveals the mystical principles taught by the Rosicrucians: a society of cabalistic warriors whose esoteric doctrine provides insight into spiritual realms.
The man finds illumination in a young woman’s loving embrace. Every knight must have his maiden: a muse held in the highest regard. Experiencing the unobtainable virgin’s tenderness becomes the crux of the knight-errant’s struggle with courtly love. This doomed romance changes the knight forever.
