The Heretic  by Allysha Lavino

Praise from Henry Lincoln -

The Man Who Solved The  Mystery 

Henry Lincoln

Best-selling author of Holy Blood, Holy Grail

The Heretic rests upon a foundation of solid and provable facts.  And those facts are more amazing, more beautiful & more magical than you can imagine.  I am happy to have been part of its growing.”

Victor E. Smith

Author of The Anathemas Channel of the Grail

"Since I also write historical visionary fiction, I hope it has some weight if I rank Allysha Lavino's inaugural novel of the same genre as a stellar accomplishment in story-telling, historical research, good science, and metaphysical authenticity. "

Sheri Herndon

Spiritual Seeker & Heretic

"The novel feels like a transmission even more than a great 'novel'... historical fiction that's maybe a new kind of genre. You can tell that [Lavino] lives this. I can't wait for the next books in the series."

Margaret Duarte

Author of the Enter The Between Series

"I enjoy learning something new via an entertaining story and The Heretic provided both in spades. It’s a story meant to open the reader's eyes to new ways of understanding our world, a world stranger than we may imagine. “Stop looking,” author Allysha Lavino advises, “and learn to SEE.”"

Claire Magdalena Sierra

Conscious Adventurer

"What a page turner! Explores and expands on the myth and lore of the Languedoc in France, bringing the magic and mystery of this compelling region, with its awesome yet veiled history, into beautiful resonance. Loved it!"

Johnnie Tomo

Mystery Buff & Magic Seeker

"After 40 years I no longer refer to myself as a 'Recovering Catholic', I now find myself to be a 'Spiritual Adventurer'. Thank you for the magic Allysha, I would never have thought it possible. Keep writing."
