    Brave Fortune by Sharif Khan

     

    The Alchemist meets the Prince of Darkness… In a dark world where dreaming is forbidden, one man dares to dream the impossible.

    When John Crowe, the jaded son of a fallen alchemist abandons his father’s mission to save the world, and instead risks all on a quest to find Solomon’s treasure, his dream turns into a nightmare.

    The sorcerer Lord Leonard, the wicked Queen Nekbhet, and global financier Sir Wilbur, form an unholy trinity to cast a dark spell on Crowe’s soul and planet Maerdon to enslave the people.

    BraveFortune-CoverCaught in a web of sorcery, treachery and deceit, Crowe learns of the trinity’s secret society, Sancta Calva (Order of the Holy Skull), and its sinister plot to use him as a pawn in a cosmic battle between the forces of good and evil to rule over heaven and hell.

    With the help of Archangel Metatron, Crowe must now learn to summon the alchemical magic of Solomon he once scorned to defeat the triad and free his people, or risk becoming a shrunken skull on the Queen’s necklace of death, to serve the Dark Lord’s scheme.

    Brave Fortune is a fantasy adventure novel that serves as an allegory of alchemy, transmuting base metal lead into gold, a transformational heroic journey through the trial-by-fire purification of suffering, struggle and sacrifice.

    Review

    “In this epic fantasy sci-fi tale, Sharif uses plots and characterizations from a wealth of literary, scientific and cinematic sources. They include: Homer’s ‘Illiad’ and ‘Odyssey,’ Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune,’ Roman mythology, King Arthur, ‘Moby Dick,’ ‘Star Wars,’ Spain’s conquest of the Aztecs, the search for El Dorado, particle physics, among others. It is a manuscript rich with action, metaphor and philosophy… Brave Fortune offers the reader more than just a classic tale of valor, betrayal and vision. It is a fiction-based guidebook to overcoming obstacles and achieving a morally satisfying and pleasurable way of life.”

    – Allen Ginsberg Award-Winning poet and editor, Charles H. Johnson

    EXCERPT

    In the half grey dawn, a lone gazelle left its tracks in the desert sand. And the sand lifted against the mighty wind. A smiling brown boy in white raiment stretched out his hand. Behind him, a blinding halo of light pierced the horizon followed by a towering mushroom cloud that shook the earth. And the boy was no more.

    It was a beautiful sight to behold. For a sea of magnificent iridescent flowers dotted the entire desert landscape, illuminating the grey walls of dawn with their soft white glow. And the wind carried their sweet scent to all corners of the world.

    But when the man knelt down to pick one of the flowers, he found in his trembling hands glowing chunks of flesh that burned to the bone. And the wind carried away his screams.

    John Crowe awoke in a pool of sweat, his heart fluttering in his chest as he gasped for air. He felt a burning sensation in his hands and rubbed his palms together to steady the shaking. The feeling of hard calluses rubbing against each other gave him some reassurance that he still had the functioning of his hands.

    His dreams were getting bolder—more visceral. But this one filled him with a fear he’d never known. He’d fought and killed in many battles. Seen much bloodshed and savagery. Felt the cold blade of death in his spine. Yet, nothing came close to the dread he was now feeling; it penetrated to his core and into a dimension he couldn’t fathom.

    Something strange and terrible is about to happen . . . I can feel it.
