      The Altar Path captures the horrific struggle of the Powers of Light against the Forces of Darkness, all through the overcoming of human weaknesses.

    Defiance, Pennsylvania, has disappeared from the map and memories of everyone who ever knew of it, except for three men who grew up there. Neil Lesko, an American scientist living in Scotland; Virgil Romanoff, a Catholic priest; and Edward Kelly, a man whose overwhelming hate drove him to seal off the town from the world by the blackest of magical practices. The two former friends, Lesko and Romanoff, are forced to renew their friendship and confront their own dark past in the occult sciences. Together, they must return to the place where Defiance stood, and find a way to penetrate behind the "Experiment of the Veil" that conceals the town.

    Accompany Lesko and Romanoff on their desperate flight from Europe to America. Follow them as they use reason and half-forgotten magical practices to confront the world of magical chaos and human insanity that lies waiting beyond the 'Veil.' Struggle with them as they overcome their own weaknesses and fears, calling upon the courage and valor that resides in the Powers of Light. Stand with these warriors, as they give final battle to the evil that is Edward Kelly and his demonic minions at the end of The Altar Path.
