Two Sudanese “Lost Boys.” Both fathers murdered during civil war. Both mothers forced into exile through lands where the only law was violence. To survive, they became ruthless loners and child soldiers, before finding mystic mentors who transformed them to create their destinies. One, known to the streets as the Supreme Raptor. The other, known to the Greeks as Horus, son of Osiris. Separated by seven thousand years, and connected by immortal truth. Both born in fire Both baptised in blood Both brutalised by the wicked Both elevated by mystic madmen Both sworn to transform the world And themselves By the power... of Alchemy. *** A re-imagining of an ancient myth, and the invocation of a modern, urban reality, The Alchemists of Kush is the first novel to explore the lives of Somali and Sudanese youth in North America. Written by the award-winning maverick novelist Minister Faust, who's increasingly described as one of the finest voices of his generation, The Alchemists of Kush is a visionary novel that will anger, shock, profoundly move, and even transform its readers.
