Mankind has only two choices after science and technology renders the species utterly obsolete and incapable of survival in the future. One choice compels humanity to submit body and soul to a sinister supernatural civilisation, whilst the other impels mankind to submit to a utopian bioengineering paradigm. The first choice results in extinction of the singularity of the human soul, whilst the second choice leaves it infinitely free and self-determined. 

British Army Captain George Smythe spills his blood for The Cause before he has a conscious thought as to either its true nature or his role as its leader in the distant future. His mortal and immortal enemy nearly slays him whilst he’s on holiday in Mexico touring pre-Columbian archeological sites. If not for his rescue from death by a Nagual shaman, who then realized his potential to wield Puramore for the thirteenth and last time. 

General Sir George Smythe, Team Alpha, Juan and their quantum computer battle Wingtip, an avatar of China's first emperor, and spirit forces at his command to turn the tide of mankind's survival dilemma decidedly in their favour. In order to prevail against their mortal and immortal foe, they marshal all the intellectual resources at their disposal to overcome Wingtip's spiritual advantage. Time is of the essence since their foe is on the brink of delivering the final coup d'état to mankind.

In the end, only the wielder of Puramore possesses an advantage over humanity's ancient nemesis. Will George Smythe prove himself worthy to acquire the Divine Blade?

About the author (2011)

An American by birth and education, he wrote the work from the perspective of a contemporary British novelist in order to enhance thematic elements as well as character development and portrayal. His perspective as the author from that standpoint was largely influenced by George Orwell, Arthur C. Clarke, Aleister Crowley, Spinoza, Joseph Campbell and William Blake.

His life-long interest in international economics and finance continues unabated. He primarily demonstrates this professional involvement as a contributor to the Long Room, the members-only international finance professionals' forum hosted by the Financial Times of London

He’s an expert scuba diver who enjoys traveling to exotic dive sites. His love of the sea and marine life gives him an unbounded appreciation and support of “green” issues, especially those devoted to the conservation of endangered species and coral reefs.

He continually posts results of his personal genealogical research to his Goodreads Authors Blog. Entitled The Patricians - The Ancestral Heritage of Steven Wood Collins, the work represents thousand of hours of his research efforts and related commentary.
