The world has changed forever. Across America, technology has been eclipsed by magic, and ordinary people become the embodiments of their darkest desires, deepest fears, purest selves. To save his sister, Tina, who has been transformed into one of the ethereal creatures known as flares, former lawyer Cal Griffin seeks out the source of this terrifying phenomenon. Cal and his band of unlikely heroes follow the song of a cursed bluesman and the visions of the charming lunatic Goldie to a secret haven, exempt from the malevolent power. But as the outside world unravels, the salvation of everything left worth saving requires that Cal and his companions journey deep into the soul of darkness to confront the beast ruling the Ruby City once called Chicago.

Professional reviews

"A huge electronic pulse paralyzes the known world. Modern conveniences cease to operate; "schools of shadows" and foreboding magic proliferate. Four distinct and vivid voices--those of Goldie, Colleen, Cal, and Doc--take turns narrating this story of the search for the cause of the new dystopian world. Something magical happens when these separate narrative sections are read by four accomplished voice talents. Listeners not only hear different points of view, they hear the characters interpreting each other's motives and feelings. "Home isn't a place, it's the people in it," says Goldie in one of his visions. I came to like these characters because they came to like each other. B.P. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
