In the heady days of the sixties, many people sought solutions to mankind’s troubles in ancient religions and found that old wisdom had its place in the modern world. Among them were the followers of Thorne Blackburn, all seekers after Truth. The group settled at Shadow’s Gate, a magnificent old house in upstate New York.
During the climatic night of Blackburn’s most powerful ceremony, chaos erupted. Thorne Blackburn had vanished. And Katherine, Thorne’s life-partner and the mother of one of his young children, was dead.
All that was thirty years ago, but Truth Blackburn, daughter of Thorne and Katherine, is still seeking truths – the truth of what happened that night at Shadow’s Gate, the truth about the magical powers her father claimed to wield, the truth about her long-lost half-brother and -sister.
She may be about to get some answers. A legacy has summoned Truth back to Shadow’s Gate. Fueled once again by a decade’s search for meaning, and led by the mysterious, charismatic Julian Pilgrim, a new group of followers of Thorne Blackburn’s Way is preparing to perform the same ritual that killed Truth’s mother.
