I am thrilled to be sharing the cover of The Secret Mantra, the long-awaited follow-up book to The Magician of Lhasa! You can pre-order The Secret Mantra right now, in e-book or print format, from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, or from your local bookstore – links below.
Our wonderful designer, Sue Campbell, has also refreshed the cover of The Magician of Lhasa, so that the two covers have more of a series feel. I really love what she’s done. There is a simplicity and boldness to the covers, and there’s now a visual connection between the Potala Palace, where the Dalai Lamas used to be based in Lhasa, Tibet, and Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan, where so much of The Secret Mantra is set.
What is The Secret Mantra all about? I will be sharing more with you in the coming weeks. For the moment, here is the back cover description:
In a remote, Himalayan monastery, Matt Lester has devoted five years of spiritual preparation for this moment: it is his destiny to open an ancient, sealed scroll containing prophetic wisdom the world urgently needs. But when his time comes, violent assailants steal the scroll. Matt is caught up in a dangerous, high-stakes hunt to recover it, turning him from the pursuer to the pursued.
On the other side of the world, the results of scientist Alice Weisenstein’s mind-body healing research are about to be revealed. Things take a sinister turn when her supervisor goes missing – and she realizes she is being followed. Guided by the lamas, Matt’s search for the scroll takes him to Alice. The pair become caught between powerful influences and escalating threats. Together they must decide who they can really trust.
The Secret Mantra weaves breakthrough science and spiritual insights into a heart-stopping storyline. It won’t just have you turning the pages. It will shake up your whole idea of who you are, and the transformation of which you are capable.
I am super-excited about the publication of The Secret Mantra. Readers quite often contact me to say that The Magician of Lhasa is their favourite of all my books, and of course in The Secret Mantra we are picking up from where we left off with our favourite characters and story line – our main protagonist, Matt, having spent the past five years preparing for the big reveal.
The Secret Mantra is being published in Australia by Hay House, and in USA, UK, Canada and elsewhere by Conch Books. You can order it from your local bookstore (in Australia via Hay House, outside Australia, via Ingram Spark) or from any of the following online bookstores:
