England 2005: the year of the London Tube bombings. A world dominated by the internet and the fear of terrorism. But the ancient pagan religions of witchcraft and Wicca are making a comeback. Most Wiccans are ordinary people united by a simple New-Age faith in Nature and ancient spirits. But hidden in their depths lurks a sinister organisation, the Wakened, who plan to restore Wicca as the primary religion of Britain, and seem prepared to kill to achieve it Owen is a young up-and-coming Cambridge biologist whose comfortable middle-class life is torn apart by the death of his girlfriend Sarah. Owen's quest to bring her killers to justice takes him into the core of the Wakened, where he uncovers ancient clues to the roots of Wicca. After being drawn into a Wiccan terrorist plot, he finds himself sliding helplessly from respected academic to hunted criminal. This novel is fiction: a mystery/thriller. But embedded within it is ancient knowledge, fused with insights from modern astronomical knowledge, questioning the origin of Wicca and witchcraft.

About the Author
This is the first novel from Ray Norris, a British and Australian astrophysicist whose day-job is to research the origin and evolution of galaxies shortly after the Big Bang. He also researches Australian Aboriginal astronomy, and the astronomy of British Bronze-age stone circles and other megalithic monuments. As well as over 250 professional publications, he frequently appears on radio and TV, and performs in a stage show called "The First Astronomers". For relaxation, he walks the moors of Dartmoor and the Australian bush, and writes. And, no, he's not Owen.
