Title: The Alchemical Horseman
Author: Jeremy James
Trailer Creator: Goldmark Films
Stripped of his purpose in life and of belief in himself, the thirty-four-year-old Xavier Perdue has his world inverted by a shadowy knight, an elemental blue horse and the knight’s companion, Epsibar Sophia.
Metaphorically pitched upon the same path, the three lead him to a realisation of his own value in an upside-down world, releasing within him the entheogen of change. Battling outer odds, fighting inner demons, he turns the base of himself into pure gold.
The 22 chapters are named after the 22 cards of the Major Arcana of The Tarot: the journey from Fool to The World. The unfolding events reveal the power of the individual spirit when pitted against the impossible, how personal transformation can shape the world. The small is like the great. The great is like the small. It is an aspirational tale, set in both future and past, lifted by the poetry of its telling.
