An obsessed magician will do anything it takes to satiate his perverse needs.
He turns to forbidden arts to manifest his will.
In doing so, he will bring about the end of everything.
A serial novel about the paranormal and dark desires. The story of a cursed young man who has an intimate view of the end of the world as we know it. My Babylon weaves elements of urban fantasy, erotic horror, and real-world occult practices, to form a unique personal tale that thrills, terrifies, and even enlightens.
In My Babylon, the magus, consumed with longing, seeks to create a replacement for his lost love using a grisly ritual that requires the theft of a body. Through her creation, he learns that he has a much bigger role to play, and that she may be a form of salvation not only for him but for others.
Where we learn of the magus and his desire.
In this book, the magus reveals the source of his longing and depths to which he has fallen. Both his strength and his weakness come from a girl named Rose.
In Book Three: Risen, the magus gains the object of his desire. Her presence not only changes him and his life forever, but attracts the notice of enemies he never knew he had.
In Book Four: Host, the magus learns about the powers that are arrayed against him, and that which he has carried all along.
In this final episode, the magus unleashes the power that lurks within him and is consumed by it. Through the flames he is reborn to his destiny.
