THE SHAPE OF RAIN • The Third and Final installment of the Newirth Mythology: AVAILABLE FOR PRE ORDER NOW!
The Shape of Rain
Part 3 of the Newirth Mythology, by Michael B. Koep
Release Date: October 1st, 2018
Michael B. Koep’s final installment in The Newirth Mythology Trilogy brings a psychologist face to face with his greatest fear: madness, while on the other side of the world a professor of mythology discovers the key that will restore him.
Discredited mythology professor Astrid Finnley believes gods and immortals once battled for a place in creation—for a place of their own on the earth. When she is summoned to a secret archaeological dig site in Northern Idaho to translate an ancient script, she uncovers an unthinkable nightmare—a woman buried alive for over a thousand years. Meanwhile, Loche Newirth’s assassination is ordered to prevent him from rewriting history. But his former mentor Dr. Marcus Rearden wants him alive to torture, to command, to control. When Loche discovers his son is also a target, he flees, pursuing a lead that promises to end what his writing has started. Instead, the path vaults him back to the prehistory of his story—to a time when a venomous army of gods lay siege to the City of Immortals, and his little boy stands in the balance.
Infused with intrigue and mystery, steeped in rich atmospheres and celestial horrors, saturated with twists and delightful intricacies, Koep’s offering is a final mythology for a rapidly evolving New Earth.

Leaves of Fire
Part 2 of the Newirth Mythology, by Michael B. Koep
Release date June 4, 2015
Imagine paintings that hold the secrets to the meaning of life and death—or scribbled words that can alter the past and reshape the present. We know art imitates life but in Michael B. Koep’s thriller fiction trilogy, the author brings the arts to life in an action-packed tale spanning seven centuries.
In the spring of 1338, young William of Leaves knows only of remedies, herbs and his mother’s kindness. When he is forced to watch as she is dragged to a witch’s pyre by a mob led by the Bishop of London, the mysterious immortal apothecary, Albion Ravistelle, promises the boy a chance at vengeance.
In the summer of 1972, Helen Storm is a stoned groupie on the sunset strip with a very special condition: she is immortal. When her life intersects with a famous guitar player, she is introduced to her future as a deadly and remorseless assassin.
In present day, psychologist Loche Newith and Julia Iris must come to terms with Loche’s prophetic writings that have changed the course of history and shaped the lives of William, Helen, and countless others. As a war breaks out between the immortals on earth and Albion Ravistelle, Loche must accept the realities he has authored and cross over into death—he must enter again into Basil Fenn’s paintings to find a way to end the conflict.
In Part Two of The Newirth Mythology, Leaves of Fire, Koep entwines these lives and lifetimes as he explores myth, memory, revenge and the hope of forgiveness.
The Invasion of Heaven
Part 1 of the Newirth Mythology, by Michael B. Koep
The mysterious death of a bipolar housewife forces psychologist Loche Newirth to see traces of insanity in the most terrifying place- in himself. All at once his practice is falling apart, his wife is leaving him, his mentor has gone mad and he is accused of murder. When he is called upon by a stuttering and sometimes stoned portrait painter claiming that his art provides a view into the afterlife, Loche discovers just how little he knew about the super-reality of human perception: that there is more to this life than meets the eye.
In part one of The Newirth Mythology, The Invasion of Heaven, a mystery unravels through a battle of wits between two psychologists. It is filled with a mind-bending cast of double-crossing characters bent on destroying what was thought to be beyond the reach of human treachery: the hoped for life behind death’s door. Dr. Newirth must elude supernatural kidnappers and real life police detectives as he learns the harrowing truth about his place in existence. The journey takes him from the mountain lakes of Idaho to Northern Italy to across the astral plane– sometimes at the heels of a swashbuckling, poetry-spouting patient who often speaks in anagrams and claims he’s more than 600 years old.
The Invasion of Heaven brings a new life to the age old questions, why are we here, where are we from and where are we going? Amid swordfights, shootouts, betrayal, just-discovered family members, secret guardians prone to poetic monologues and murders– in a milieu of fine art, fine food, secret lovers, myth, mafia, ancient languages and the loud music of classic vinyl LPs. It will leave the reader questioning what it means to be human, what lies beyond and, stutteringly, if “The eyes on the inside always tell the t-t-truth.”
