"...author Isabella Ides has written what will surely become a classic." IndieReader: Judges Verdict

A rogue order of nuns, in tucked away in Humboldt County, are raising an undocumented deity on the down-low. Persecuted by the patriarchs of the Great Church and decimated by a plague of prayer eaters, The Sisterhood is on the verge of extinction when a white monkey appears in a snowstorm and makes a special delivery.

It is a holy night like no other—complete with a wandering star, three disreputable magi, and a babe mangered in a cardboard box.

Scandal alert!

The mere existence of the misbegotten baby god is a provocation. In celestial realms, the reputations of celebrity A-list Gods are at stake. On Earth, the undocumented deity is a threat to the birdmen of the Great Church—Cardinals, Hooded Crow, Cloistered Ravens, and gay Budgies, plus a malevolent Cassowary and an ancient Hierophant: His Holiness, the Divine Mallard of All Mysteries.

Luckily, a white monkey with impeccable spiritual credentials has broken out of bounds and jumped into this world!

Expect literary enchantments!

  • Discover the cognate soul-group at the heart of the Sisterhood.
  • Enter the Byzantine world of the Birdmen of the Great Church when the seven-year-old boy is kidnapped and brought to Mount Quoborium. Witness the heartstopping moment when the Hierophant questions the boy. Thrill to the astonishing spectacle when the divine monkey attempts a rescue. And don't miss a spirituous whiff of Humboldt Snow #9, a psychedelic game-changer like no other.


    OUT OF THIS WORLD(Literary Review)

    "WHITE MONKEY CHRONICLES shows author Isabella Ides to be a self-assured, equal-opportunity paradigm demolition expert. Storming entrenched temples of orthodoxy, shattering icons, upending conventions—the eponymous monkey blinks his eyes and worlds collide.

    But it’s in the reconstruction that the story wins our hearts. When bohemian Sister Merry Berry fires up her pink 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible, top down, in preparation for heavenly ascent, readers will aspire to hitch a ride, relishing the mind-expanding experience the transit has in store."

    A CLASSIC(Literary Review)

    "WMC: The Complete Trilogy is a delightful and thought-provoking walk along a multi-faceted road of philosophy, spirituality, and dystopia. Its pages are filled with marvelous word play, intriguing characters, and most importantly, a phenomenal plot surrounding the offspring of two transgressing gods and a group of lovable, resolute nuns. Funny, intellectual, and insightful, author Isabella Ides has written what will surely become a classic." --IndieReader: Judges Verdict.
