For centuries, love has been possibly our most misunderstood experience. Some of our greatest human suffering arises from this pervasive misconception and the manipulation of love’s profound power. Yet love is the experience we credit with the greatest meaning. We devote our life to its pursuit.
So…what is love? Is it an emotion, a sensation, an experience? Is it of our bodies or our minds? Are there degrees, or kinds of love? Can it be bad?
What if love is more about imagination and sub-atomic particles? Would you travel backward through all your memories, perceptions, and beliefs to change your brain and acquire love and the sense of purpose it provides?
Good guy Gabe Mendes is certainly passionate. He thinks love will make his life worth living. So he’s made a deal. In exchange for access to the universe of love he agrees to slay the black ram. But soon he learns, being unlucky in love isn’t his only problem. Turns out—love isn’t what he thinks it is.
By the time Gabe stumbles across the website of the alluring, though mature, Pythia—mystic and high priestess—he’s already failed miserably in love yet again. Raised by a hardworking single mom, never having known the full truth about his father, Gabe has spent his life faithful to three beliefs: follow the rules; don’t let anyone get too close; and avoid, at all costs, being honest about how you feel—especially with yourself. If it weren’t for Gabe’s steadfast companion, a cat named Cat, he might not know love at all.
But when the enchanting red-headed priestess dangles the keys that will unlock the secret answers to the long-asked questions of love, Gabe jumps at the chance. Before he knows it, things change—and fast. The entertaining Pythia takes him on a whirlwind journey traveling the portals of time and space. She’s got him questioning everything he’s ever thought about love. And if that weren’t enough, Gabe is beginning to believe this business about the black ram might cost him everything. It might just kill him.
