The Story

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 sworn to transform the world, and themselves, by the power... of Alchemy.

Praise for the Novel 

"It was only a matter of time before the hip hop culture would invade the literary world. With The Alchemists of Kush, Minister Faust is leading the invasion. His novel is possibly the first hip hop epic. Hip hop has a short attention span on most occasions. The Alchemists of Kush gives it gravitas."

Read more acclaim by  novelists and readers for what may be Minister Faust's most powerful novel yet.
