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.

    "A Punt"

    Looking for something for my walk to work. I find authors I never heard of a gamble. But I really enjoyed it. Read well by Todd Boyce. I heartily recommend this really good story. Nicely finished too.

    "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...

    "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.

    "It was ok , but"

    It was a good book but would have been better without all the time spent trying to explain his world view. It was like the author was trying to preach to us.

    "Agenda Disguised As Entertainment"

    Book 1 is not bad. Somewhat disjointed and bizarre but the pages turn and there is some entertainment value. It was good enough for me to try Book 2. That was an unmitigated disaster. I should have believed other reviews. The author exposes a bizarre and preachy agenda of humanist nirvana. His "hero" the suicidal, hedonistic,self absorbed and short sighted musician becomes the sole decision maker for the Universe(s). I should have paid attention to the lack of scientific fidelity in Book 1. I might have skipped the horrible second book.

    "Good book"

    I liked it, but a little slow for me. It isn't very original, but overall a good story and I will listen to the next book.

    "Good performance, bad story"

    It's unfortunate that the author uses many flashbacks to try to make the protagonist more interesting, but they do nothing to explain his motivation in the main story. The more interesting supporting characters get no back story with the entire affair ending in a completely uncompelling climax.
