Synopsis

The year is 1584. The alchemist John Dee has turned to forbidden magic. In partnership with a visionary rogue, an ex-nun and a court beauty, he's fled across Europe, dogged by the Inquisition and a relentless assassin. Finally, Dee's magic seems to yield fruit. Angels (or are they demons?) promise to reveal the secret of transmuting lead into gold. There is only one hitch: Dee and his companions must first commit an unforgivable sin. Based on real-life diaries and historical accounts, Sorcerer recreates a world of death, sex and politics where everyone believes that both that magic is real and that otherworldly beings can be summoned at will.

"A cinematic blend of history and magic." - David Rotman, producer of DragonHeart and Cliffhanger

"An entertaining story." -Benjamin Woolley, author of The Queen's Conjuror

"An intricate tapestry of the historical and the alchemical that casts an authentic spell over the reader. A vivid tale vigorously told, it may bring visions upon you!" - Ramsey Campbell, Lifetime President, British Fantasy Society
