Equinox

What happens when the past and the present merge and secretly hidden secrets occur? How does human typology change when a present person still believes in occult beliefs that appeared many centuries ago? What comes out when occultism and astrology are used for meek purposes? How can a series of ritual crimes be concluded? Who is the culprit? Who has to pay for all the evils committed in an idyllic town?

Michael White’s novel is based on two narrative plans: the plan of the present, 2007, when a series of horrific crimes took place in Oxford, and the past, of the years 1689-1690, when people still believed in alchemy and were in search of immortality and the Philosopher’s Stone, so coveted by the scientists of those times. The two are intertwined through a secret conspiracy that has been perpetuated over the centuries, and the same ritualistic crimes are being committed today, which intrigued both policemen and writer Laura Nieven, who wishes to solve the mystery behind them so that they can outline their new Roman novelty.

The author uses an extremely visual technique; everything is described through the rich detail, creating the feeling that you are in front of a screen and watch a movie. Perhaps that is why the sense of fear does not disappear throughout the reading of the book, and the thrills feel cold on the spine. You have the heart to know the killer, but although you have the impression that as you go through the action that you have some control over it and that you take the culprit, you will finally understand that you have made only suppositions and that the truth is much greater and more complex than what you suspected.
Equinox pervades the past and the present, bringing to light, mysterious mysteries, which lead the careful researcher’s steps to a nonconformist society, the Order of the Black Sphinx, which has existed from ancient times without the common people having any idea of ​​its existence. Besides these, there are Guardians, people specially trained to combat those who believe in the existence of the Philosopher’s Stone, the only donor of immortality.

In 1690, in Oxford, Isaac Newton seemed to hold the supreme secret that can lead him to eternal life. He has discovered an old document that makes him own the Emerald Tab and the ruby ​​sphere, so necessary to obtain the much-desired elixir. Centuries later, in 1851, a series of horrendous crimes took place, murders that led to the death and mutilation of youth, to whom some organs of the body had been stolen. The killer is shrouded in mystery even today because a certain influential person has intervened, stopping certain investigations.

In Oxford 2007, the same series of terrible crimes are happening, and someone with the precision of a surgeon extracts specific organs of young female students, which creates panic in the small University City. The police do not have much to follow, and what writer Laura Nieven and the police photographer, her boyfriend, Philip Bainbridge, are questioning, considering that they were ritually committed crimes at certain times when a few planets find itself in conjunction, seems to be something incredible and unreal. Because they are not believed, the two, who have a daughter together during their student relationship, are convinced that they are right and leave for hunting criminals and myths, hoping to stop all these cycles of human life.

The author combines skillfully with the fictional elements, creating an exceptional thriller that keeps all your senses up to the last page. It brings into the foreground unscrupulous people and petty interests that need to be unmasked. The police do not seem to be the one who can help; it seems to be far from the truth, which is why the characters with a justifiable spirit appear to unlock the mysteries.

If you have a strong heart and you can defeat the demons that exist in the human being, Equinox is a book that will give you much thought, will make you wonder about the infinite possibilities of the world in which we live, about the choices we make and the reality of our universe, about the conspiracies that unfold before us, without that we may realize this fact.

The Last Sorcerer

Michael White has written a beautifully well-researched bio about one of the greatest known scientists. The author explains in details how the scientist had a troubled childhood and how this could have affected his personality later in life causing him to be super secretive, disliking criticism, trusting few causing him not publish his theories.

For example, Isaac Newton’s Principia was 20 years in making, published in Latin and structured in a way that only a few people would understand it.
The author also does a fantastic job of giving details to the exposed atmosphere at Cambridge University 17th century, the politics and the workings of the Royal Society. The two institutions by then in their infancy were quite distinct compared to how they are today.

As the title suggests, the author places more emphasis on Isaac’s alchemy activities and how Newton viewed Alchemy as a way of explaining the Universe and nature and giving a glimpse into the mind of God.

According to Newton, alchemy had more meaning than just transforming lead into gold. He believed that the ancient civilization had a better understanding of the universe, nature, and God and all these revelations had been lost through time and could only be re-discovered through alchemy and studying bible. Through Michael White’s descriptions, we learn that Newton carried countless alchemical investigations to try to unlock the meaning of life and studied the bible as well.
