Product Description

Product Description

If you knew the Truth would kill you, would you tell it?

John Palaeologus must stop the Ottoman conquest of Europe. Better than most, he knows the threat that empire poses to the West. Unfortunately, the one man who can help is the same one who will have to kill John once he knows the story.

John is in the hands of the Spanish Inquisition. He has 40 days to confess his sins. The rightful heir of Byzantium tells a story of love, revenge,conspiracy and adventure spanning the Mediterranean. He has secrets too for the heirs of Rome, but will they believe him in time to save themselves?

This is the book that had to be written after 9/11 and before 2012. The author says his inspiration came from living through the attack on the Pentagon and asking, "So why all the hatred and how do we get over it?" The answer is inspirational fiction with something for every student of history, religion, the occult and prophecy.

This book was a fantastic read,full of possibilities.
Chapter fifty is a must read for anyone seeking answers to the question; "Who are we?" and "Why are we here?".
The illustrations and explanations highlight what our beliefs are and their origins.
The Florilegium contains knowledge that we should all know, and what the religious leaders keep from us.
The book is full of the truth and contains the word.
It contains prophecies and adds new light on 2012 and the aftermath.
The book contains a fasinating insight,to how we all are divided yet so close together.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone,who has the instinct,The Last Byzantine: Confessions of a Would-Be Messiahand the quest for fogotten knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening and Inspirational! 23 July 2009
By SMS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This novel by Ken McClellan has a special message for everyone...it truly touched my heart. If there is one book that everyone should read, this is it! It will take you through a spiritual journey that will have you yearning for more! There is so much to take in that I am reading it for a third time! The ability of the author to "break down" history and religion and relate it to our world today is amazing! I definitely give it two thumbs WAY up!

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY WORTHY READ TO HEED 10 July 2009
By FRL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ken McClellan speaks through this book with the voice of the prophet: "he who neither listens to nor learns from the past is doomed to repeat the past.
This thoroughly researched book - by one in possession of prodigious mind and intellect - in the fields of the religious faiths and belief systems, the history,
the myths, the fallibility of humanity, the failures of reigning leaders and populations throughout ancient history to attempt to understand one another, instead,
conquering and imposing their wills unilaterally, exposes the propensity of humanity to continue the same vulnerabilities in our day and age.
The late Edward E. Edinger, America's foremost Jungian analyst wrote just after the Oklahoma City bombing: "Terrorism is a manifestation of the psyche. It is time we recognized the psyche as an autonomous factor in world affairs. "The psychological root of terrorism is a fanatical resentment - a quasi-psychotic hatred originating in the depths of the archetypal psyche and therefore carried by religious (archetypal) energies.... "Articulate terrorists generally express themselves in religious (archetypal) terminology. The enemy is seen as the Principle of Objective Evil (Devil) and the terrorist perceives himself as the "heroic" agent of divine or Objective Justice (God). This is an archetypal inflation of demonic proportions which temporarily grants the individual almost superhuman energy and effectiveness. To deal with terrorism effectively we must [first, brackets mine] understand it." That essentially is what author Ken McClellan, after having lived through the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon, is attempting to do. To help us first to understand in order to effectively deal with hate. The remedy is clear.
The remedy - as espoused by the author - is to read, to listen and to heed if we would change from a course of history pointing to complete annihilation to one of beginning the
attempt to search for common ground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling and Informative.....a wonderful read 6 Aug 2009
By Carolyn K. Nytch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ken McClellan writes a thoroughly researched and brilliantly insighful history set during the 15th century fall of Byzantium and subsequent expansion of the Ottoman Empire. Woven throughout is the compelling and heartbreakingly human story of the righful heir to the Byzantine throne. Ken has a magnificent mastery of history, philosophy, ancient religions, astrology and how mankind is ever repeating the same mistakes in his quest for power and wealth. For anyone on a spiritual journey it is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, thought-provoking, informative - a good read 30 July 2009
By BPR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This novel is set in the last half of the 1400s amidst Moslem and Christian invasions and conquests. The reader follows the life of a young boy with a secret but prominent lineage, through the fall of his city and his subsequent years as a janissary in the Ottoman army, his escape and years of freedom in search of ultimate Truth for the salvation of civilization, and his eventual end at the hands of the Spanish Inquisition. His struggle for survival amidst the religious and political forces of his time are both historically and spiritually enlightening. It shows the religious and political intrigue that have always plagued mankind in the quest for spiritual and material power over each other. But it also shows the commonalities of Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths through which all peoples can come together in belief of the Supreme Being (by whatever name called), if the corrupted and corrupting dogma and doctrines of man can be set aside. Ken McKlellen has presented a thoroughly researched history lesson in a palatable story form, and has offered a rare detailed view of ancient religious thought and symbolism. (My eyes did glaze over, though, in chapter 50, which seems to me to be a catch-all for such information that could not be woven into the story!) This is a wonderful book for better understanding the religious conflict and confusion of our day, and I recommend it for any seeker of spiritual truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting work of prose that encourages the reader to ask many questions 9 Oct 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
No one listens to a heretic. "The Last Byzantine" tells the story of one of the last heirs of the Roman empire, and the Spanish Inquisition that seems to be intent on preventing the truth from getting out. But it seems this truth may be what's needed to stop the oncoming Ottomans from marching right into Europe and claiming it as their own. An exploration of medieval politics with allegories to the modern day, "The Last Byzantine" is an exciting work of prose that encourages the reader to ask many questions.
