Convincing mankind that he doesn't exist has been the Devil’s greatest victory.
Undeparted is an action/adventure story of the arcane struggle between Good and Evil woven around some of the most extraordinary tales from history and folklore. You can find out why Satan’s hoof prints were found one cold night in Devon; what really happened to the lost North-west passage expedition; learn the true identity of Victorian legend Spring-heeled Jack and why demons flee at the sight of a Morris dance.
Set in modern day America, it focuses on Keanus and his responsibility for overseeing the actions of the Order of the Polymath, a group who have the ability to recall all the skills and knowledge of their previous incarnations. The Order are locked in an eternal struggle with the Djinn but this delicate balance is disturbed when a new entity enters the stage. Tamerlane is a crazed soul who has escaped from Hell and now walks the earth again. He believes that he is the new Messiah and is planning world domination following his master-minding of the 9/11 atrocity. Satan claims to be so concerned that he will be dethroned as the Prince of Darkness that he turns to the Order for help. As the plot twists and turns, even Keanus comes under suspicion as old wounds and ancient mysteries are re-opened.
Has that feeling of déjà vu ever made you stop and wonder? Have you ever felt unexplainably familiar in new surroundings? You probably just dismissed it yet it was actually your soul trying to remind you of one or more of your past-lives and this book will help you understand why. It is inspired by the true story of one man’s near death experience, but it wasn't like those heart warming stories you read in the Sunday papers. He didn’t see the light or stand before the Pearly Gates; this man went to Hell…and returned with a message for us all.
Protect your soul; know the Psychomachy.
