The dawning 20th century isn't really large enough for eccentric genius Aleister Crowley. he's an acclaimed poet, chess grasp, world-class mountaineer, and doubtless the main passionately liberated guy in Victorian London. His actual devotion, even though, is magic...and the hunt for his personal soul.

An notorious fourteenth century Arabic publication of magic survives the centuries to spawn the formation of a hidden society of magicians in London. The Order is led through occult student MacGregor Mathers and his spouse Moina, who declare to be involved with mystery masters that provide them ever-increasing magical wisdom and gear. For a number of years the Order grows, drawing on new contributors from the giants of British trade, artwork, and literature.

Suddenly, on the peak of the Order's effect, MacGregor and Moina seem to lose touch with the key masters. They circulation to Paris and forget about the Order's plea for extra teachings and better initiations. The London resort threatens to sever ties with them and make magical touch with the key masters themselves. 5 very recognized individuals lead the revolt:

*the poet William Butler Yeats
*the playwright Maude Gonne
*Bram Stoker, writer of Dracula
*Florence Farr, the main acclaimed actress of her day
*and one of many wealthiest girls on this planet, tea heiress Annie Horniman.

Crowley naively joins the Order before everything of the riot. Blinded through his extreme religious aspirations, he's not in simple terms drawn into the clash, yet unwittingly turns into the catalyst that brings approximately their destruction.

Example text

We now get a closer look at the old man. He is rather short. His light robe is belted with a living serpent. His long gray beard is immaculately braided in seven braids. The two servants at his side are not children, but miniature adults, with fine features and warm pink complexions. Abraham approaches the tent, and then stands directly in front of the old man. He bows and makes the customary gestures expected from a guest. The servants offer him the customary bread and salt. After Abraham eats, the old man parts the veil of the tent door and gestures for Abraham to enter.

The doors lock into place so that the mirrors face each other perfectly. He stands aside to let Mathers and Moina see the contents of the cabinet. At first there is nothing but darkness. Then four tiny flames appear and grow from what appear to be four candles inside the cabinet. The open doors transform the cabinet into a shrine. The four candles flank what appears to be the Book of the Sacred Magick of Abramelin the Mage. It is closed and lies flat on its back. It is a large brown leather-and-wood tome not unlike a thousand others of its provenance.

Not at all, Doctor. Allow me to introduce Mrs. Mathers. Moina, I have the honour of introducing you to Dr. Wynn Westcott, the—” “Greatest occult mind in England,” Moina finishes. “An honour, Dr. ” “I believe, Mrs. Mathers, your husband may deserve that title more than I. That’s why I’m here. ” Westcott pulls one sheet from the portfolio and hands it to Mathers. He holds it near the lamp. Moina leans in to look. Mathers seems genuinely interested. ” Westcott turns to Moina and smiles paternally.
