Markham has returned to Seattle, searching for Katarina, the girl who, a decade ago, touched his soul, literally tearing it from his body. But what he discovers upon arriving is dark magick - of a most ancient and destructive kind! An encounter with a desperate spirit, leaping destructively from host to host, sets Markham on the trail of secretive cabal of magicians seeking to punch a hole through heaven, extinguishing forever the divine spark.
Armed with the Chorus, a phantasmal chain of human souls he wields as a weapon of will, Markham must engage in a magickal battle with earth-shattering stakes! Markum must delve deep into his past, calling on every aspect of his occult training for there to be any hope of a future. But delve he must, for Markham is a veneficus, a spirit thief, the Lightbreaker....
Andy Caploe's performance as narrator Markham plays up the detective fiction current running through Mark Teppo's noir urban fantasy debut. Caploe's steely, hoarse rasp communicates the antihero's weariness in his grim underworld of lost souls and arcane rituals, set against the gray of the Pacific Northwest.
This occult thriller layers its body-jumping pursuits, secret society villains, and astral magick combat with thought-provoking tarot symbolism and Hermetic philosophy to weave a reality with depth and a wealth of concepts new to the genre.
