Publisher's Summary

When Sir Peter Pendragon, a retired pilot of the Great War, meets the free-spirited Louise, a devotee of the mysterious occultist Basil King Lamus, the two immediately get married and set off across Europe, on a drug-fueled honeymoon of heroin and cocaine. Eventually, in an attempt to break free of their recently acquired habit, the newlyweds find their way to the Abbey of Thelema in Italy, where the adults perform invocations to the sun and the children freely recite passages from the Book of the Law. At the guiding hand of King Lamus, the sisters of the Abbey maintain magical diaries, practice strange rituals, and pursue their true will. But what will become of Peter and Lou?

Book and performance are absolutely fantastic!

From the beginning, I was enthralled in this book, and the narrator makes it so much better! With the different voices, and even singing, Shea Taylor does it brilliantly! The descriptions used in the book, and how they’re worded are also so great! This book taught me things and made me laugh a few times, I’m definitely going to give this another listen at some point! 10/10 definitely recommend!

Amazing voiceover

I have read this book. it is excellent! usually I prefer the voice over which my imagination provides. However, this is one of the few exceptions where the voice over on Audible was far superior!

A pursuit of moral, spiritual and religious values

An insightful book into both the world of drug addiction and also our own various addictions; and the pursuit of moral, spiritual and religious values. Beautifully poetically written and narrated. A surprisingly enjoyable and entertaining read about a harsh and difficult subject.
