Astrum Divinus

By John D Christopher

Thriller, Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


All his life, Dr. Peter Northcott has been plagued by disturbing dreams: apocalyptic scenes of angels and demons, and visions of fire and blood. Concentrating on his scholarly life in Rome, Peter is approaching his thirty-third birthday when he is accosted by a mysterious priest. Father Renauld claims to have important information regarding Peter’s destiny. He spins a tale of secret societies, ancient texts and enemies, who not only threaten Peter himself, but the whole of creation. Peter retreats to his adopted parents’ home in England. Even there he is haunted by dreams of Armageddon. His parents beg him to listen to the priest’s story. Can these intelligent people really believe in a war of cosmic proportions? What was the true motivation behind Peter's adoption? Reluctantly, Peter visits a subterranean cavern, situated deep in the bowels of the Pyrenees Mountains, to retrieve an ancient scroll. Records of fire, murder and secrets echo Peter’s visions but can he really be the divine star, the saviour of the world? The idea is unthinkable, but what if it is true? What if he is the Astrum Divinus? Readers of apocalyptic fiction, historical fiction and speculative fiction will enjoy this supernatural, historical novel. If you enjoyed "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown or "The Omen" by David Seltzer, you are going to love "Astrum Divinus".
