The only father that he has ever known is his mysterious tutor Althotas who will only say that the boy was born the child of Christians of noble birth who met their ends in the fallen Ottoman province of Trebizond.
Here, in the cradle of civilization, the young boy learns horrible truths about the true identity of his beloved tutor and is given the chance to be initiated into the ancient and sacred rites of Egyptian mysticism — a sacral power granted only to a chosen few by God himself. This is a tall order for someone who had not yet reached the age of majority. By accepting, Acharat takes on the burden that destiny has placed before him. Armed with this magical knowledge, Acharat spends twenty years establishing himself in European society before taking on the task set out for him by God.
What Acharat learns on the way is that being a famous sorcerer and physician comes at price — it will cost him his wife, his dearest friends and, in the end, could cost him his soul.

This novel had a great premise and I really enjoyed the beginning portion that chronicles Acharat's mother's woes prior to his conception. It was highly intriguing and I loved this in-depth look into his mother's life as a concubine, her whirlwind affair with a Frenchman, her betrayal, and ultimately her death, all of which leads up to Acharat's birth. Stolen out of his world-be assassin's grasp, Archarat survives, and the novel then jumps ahead to his teen years where he learns the truth about the man who saved him, the man to whom his life is indebted.
Learning about the magic his benefactor wields, and learning it himself, the novel then jumps again to his time in France and Rome, ultimately, showing his extreme changes and what the power he wields has done to him. Overall, this was a great concept, but it ended up being much too long for me. The novel takes place over a span of many decades, and to the author's credit, reading the text feels like it takes place over a span of decades--there is no sugarcoating or quickness about it at all, but I think I needed a much faster pace to keep my attention.
He becomes almost demonic, in a sense, which made reading the novel difficult for me as I lost my respect for him.

Yes, he had a hard life and yes, he was given the gift of magic through mysticism, but I believe he used it in the wrong way. He is truly evil, and if I don't like my characters, I tend to have a hard time finishing a novel, and that was the case with this one, length aside. I think lovers of histories, historical fiction, and attention to detail will really enjoy this novel, though--after all, it is very well written and, characterization aside, the plot is intriguing. I, however, found myself liking it less and less as it progressed based on the actions of the main character, which, in truth, is no fault of the authors, but rather a personal preference.
I use the rating system of Goodreads, which is different from Amazon. My overall personal rating is that it was okay.

From the very beginning it gripped me and held me tight. I absolutely had to know what was going to happen. This is an epic journey as a boy becomes a man but it is so much more. Throughout his travels, you will discover along with Acharat that life isn't always going to go as planned.

It opens your eyes in a way for which you will be completely unprepared. You know who the good guys are but are they really?? This was set in a world that is hard to fathom but the writing was done beautifully. Very much a must read.
