On the surface, MOON MAGIC tells the story of a lonely, yet privileged man. A renowned doctor and professor of medicine, he has an uncanny ability to diagnose illness but lacks in capacity to heal. He is trapped in a failed marriage, disliked by associates, students and patients alike for his brusque demeanor and his utter lack of etiquette and social skill. In short, the good Doctor has no bedside manner. With the aid of Lilith Le Fay (last seen in THE SEA PRIESTESS as Vivien Le Fay Morgan), he embarks on a perilous journey toward spiritual enlightenment. Lilith, a thoroughly modern woman trapped in a Victorian world, serves the role of "Initiatrix", as the modern incarnation of the veiled Isis, as Adept and pagan priestess in a re-enactment of ancient rituals designed to free the good Doctor from the jail forged by his own karma. And in the process, Lilith herself achieves transcendence. This novel has everything to make it sell to a modern audience - mystery, action, and even eroticism. But at a deeper level, MOON MAGIC represents a primer for the seeker looking to reclaim lost spiritual knowledge - a "How To" guide that quite eloquently reveals some of the ancient arcane secret practices long held sacred by Western secret socities and mystical orders...
