Giveaway THE FORBIDDEN BOOK by Guido Mina di Sospiro and Joscelyn Godwin

Book Description

In The Forbidden Book, Professor Leo Kavenaugh’s and Orsina Riviera della Motta’s lives are changed forever after Orsina invites Leo to Italy to help her study a private family edition of “Il Mondo magico de gli heroi” (The Magical World of the Heroes) – a mysterious treatise of alchemy that supposedly teaches one how to attain the “Tree of Life” and make a man into a god. At first oblivious to the mystical world behind their studies, Leo and Orsina do not realize Orsina’s uncle is using the text in ways that will endanger thousands of innocents across Europe.

Mina di Sospiro’s extensive knowledge of Catholic history and practice and Godwin’s authoritative studies of the Western Esoteric tradition help set The Forbidden Book apart from many other occult thrillers --- as does the fact that “Il Mondo magico de gli heroi” is a real 1603 volume about alchemy and magic. Underlying the fast-paced action, the reader will find a profound treatment of moral and political dilemmas, the conflict of religions, and the frightening possibilities of the occult.
