Monday Moments are with Ailsa Abraham!
Even though she's presently on a wonderful jaunt around Europe, visiting exciting parts which I've personally never been to yet, Ailsa Abraham has sent on information for this Monday Moments slot.
Ailsa's a very welcome return guest on this blog and, in case you missed her work before, you can read about her two Crooked Cat novels. These are classified on Amazon as in the science fiction /low fantasy genre. I think there's more to them than that- but you'd need to read them yourself to decide what you'd call them. If you click the link below, you'll also find that Ailsa's published in various flash fiction and short story anthologies - if you prefer a shorter read in between reading your novels.
...we learn about a discovery that will change the world. It's used as a bargaining chip for solving modern problems but this arrangement backfires, leaving two lovers from opposite sides of the spiritual track to battle on with the forces of evil.
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.
Book 2 Shaman's Drum
...England in the near future. Mainstream religions have been outlawed, and the old gods rule again. Iamo has been a priest of the Great Mother and is sworn to celibacy, but his love for Riga, a Black Shaman, a magical assassin, caused him to break his vows. After being imprisoned apart from each other for three years, Iamo accepts an offer to earn them both a pardon and the possibility of marriage. If they survive. Iamo and Riga must discover why demons are breaking through from the other side. Which of the cults are renegades who allow the demons through? Who can they trust? Combining their powers, they face the ordeal with the help of a band of eclectic pagans, spirit creatures, Riga's Black Shaman brothers, an undercover Christian granny, and three unusually energetic Goths. It's a tough assignment, but the hope of a life together keeps them fighting.
