A world without war?
Professor Sawhele Fielding stumbles across an invention that would change the world; something so monumental, it could spell the end of environmental disaster and conflict. With the help of her father, a shadowy figure in the world of international banking, she begins to set into motion the biggest upheaval the planet has seen.
But in a changed world, dark forces are threatening the fragile peace. Where modern technology is proving useless, old magic from a bygone era might just save the day. Adrian Oliver, expert in ancient religions is skeptical until faced with incontrovertible proof that ancient evil is abroad once again.
How could a Utopian dream of free fuel and peaceful co-existence turn into a nightmare?
Iamo, a priest of the Mother Goddess and Riga, a Black Shaman assassin captain, are thrown together – reluctantly at first – to face a threat that nobody could have imagined before “The Changes”.
ALCHEMY is the prequel to Shaman’s Drum which features the adventures of Iamo and Riga through their world in the near future, where the established religions of our own days had been banned.

Five Star Review on Amazon By Jjspina
This books starts out telling about an incredible discovery that will effect all peoples and nations of the world. The world will be in upheaval from the ramifications of this discovery. Then it moves to political sides of this issue and then onto the academic. A professor skilled in the rituals of different religions works with the shamans and goddesses of the magical world as their archivist. When the magical world collides with the human world Prof. Adrian, along with his love, Helen, a novelist, is enlisted to help Riga, a black Shaman assassin captain, and Iamo, a priest of the Mother Goddess, to face the threat.
The author developed characters that are three dimensional and fascinating. We see these characters from different perspectives as they develop and grow. There is so much to glean from this story that the reader will be mesmerized and fall in love with some of the players in this magical book. This is the first book I have read by this talented author. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
