Publisher's Summary

Imagine paintings that hold the secrets to the meaning of life and death or scribbled words that can alter the past and reshape the present.

We know art imitates life, but in Michael B. Koep’s thriller fiction trilogy, the author brings the arts to life in an action-packed tale spanning seven centuries.

In the spring of 1338, young William of Leaves knows only of remedies, herbs, and his mother’s kindness. When he is forced to watch as she is dragged to a witch’s pyre by a mob led by the bishop of London, the mysterious immortal apothecary Albion Ravistelle promises the boy a chance at vengeance.

In the summer of 1972, Helen Storm is a stoned groupie on the Sunset Strip with a very special condition: She is immortal. When her life intersects with a famous guitar player, she is introduced to her future as a deadly and remorseless assassin.

In present day, psychologist Loche Newith and Julia Iris must come to terms with Loche’s prophetic writings that have changed the course of history and shaped the lives of William, Helen, and countless others. As a war breaks out between the immortals on earth and Albion Ravistelle, Loche must accept the realities he has authored and cross over into death - he must enter again into Basil Fenn’s paintings to find a way to end the conflict.

In part two of the Newirth Mythology, Leaves of Fire, Koep entwines these lives and lifetimes as he explores myth, memory, revenge, and the hope of forgiveness.

Haven't finished it yet but...

By the gods, Justine Ayre's voice on this is silk and velvet in texture, and what cream and syrup is to the palette; it is so extraordinary that I couldn't wait till the end to mention it.

Scattered and Disjointed

I think the first book in this series was great. this one is a little harder to follow, part of that may be a result of having multiple performers .. it would likely be easier to follow in text, but the audiobook format makes it feel like a mess.
