LANCASTER, PA, October 31, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — A work of historical fiction set in faraway Parthia in the years just preceding the birth of Jesus, Magi Apprentice by Dan E. Hendrickson tells the story of a young cavalry officer named Rassan. Orphaned when young and trained as a soldier as his father was, he becomes an adept student of astronomy and is convinced of the significance of the configurations that he studies with the Magi. Despite repeated attempts to either kill or dissuade him and disappointed by the deceit of a young woman he intended to marry, Rassan remains passionately committed to following the stars. Under the Parthian emperor’s seal, Rassan travels to Babylon to return sacred star charts to the headmaster of the Astronomical Sect of the Magi and enter into an apprenticeship with him. The charts were rescued after an act of murder, and Rassan himself becomes a target in a power struggle that threatens the Astronomical Sect. Will Rassan and the Magi survive to follow the star?
