Publisher's Summary

Just outside Los Angeles, a prisoner hidden away for 70 years sits up, gets off the bed and disappears through a solid wall.
In Australia, a magician impresses audiences by producing real elephants. Nobody realizes it's not an illusion.
Across the world, individuals and ancient organizations with supernatural power suddenly detect the presence of something even they can't understand.
At the center of it all, Seb Varden, a 32-year old musician with a secret in his past, slits his wrists, is shot dead and run over on the freeway. He's had better days.
Seb is about to discover the universe is a far more complicated place than he'd ever imagined.

Good Stuff

Very good read w/ some sneaky creativity... First you think SF, then you think fantasy, then you thin SF again... It literally is SF&F perfectly blended, w/ a strong influence of the Clark assertion that anything not sufficiently understood is indistinguishable from magic... Genre bending and fusing... Kinda urban/contemporary fantasy, but only slightly as the SF elements become more recognizable... Some really good characters, complete w/ a decidedly dastardly bad guy... The narration is adequate, but adds little to the experience... Which is fine, bc this story is where it's at and the narrator has it easy w/ such a smooth flowing yarn... Feels like there's a dash of Larry Niven's Magic universe influencing w/ better results imo...

- DobieChuck "Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule"

Decent read

Different plot direction that I initially assumed was happening. I liked the direction, was just blind sided by it. This doesn't happen often so I'm happy with the result. Can't wait for book 2.
