Description

From the editor-in-chief of io9.com, a stunning novel about the end of the world--and the beginning of our future Childhood friends Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead didn't expect to see each other again, after parting ways under mysterious circumstances during high school. After all, the development of magical powers and the invention of a two-second time machine could hardly fail to alarm one's peers and families. But now they're both adults, living in the hipster mecca San Francisco, and the planet is falling apart around them. Laurence is an engineering genius who's working with a group that aims to avert catastrophic breakdown through technological intervention into the changing global climate. Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the world's magically gifted, and works with a small band of other magicians to secretly repair the world's every-growing ailments. Little do they realize that something bigger than either of them, something begun years ago in their youth, is determined to bring them together--to either save the world, or plunge it into a new dark ages. A deeply magical, darkly funny examination of life, love, and the apocalypse.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Alyssa Bresnahan is so good that it's possible just to enjoy her voice and forget everything else. Luckily, this geeky, spiritual love story is strong enough to keep listeners riveted, and Bresnahan's performance is the icing on a very tasty cake. Teenagers Patricia and Laurence are outsiders. Patricia is a tender earth spirit, a budding witch who speaks to birds, while Laurence is a techno-genius, inventor of a time-machine watch that can propel him two seconds into the future. Bresnahan controls the razor-sharp wit and clever dialogue, channeling the over-the-top characters--from Patricia's sadistic sister to a high-ranking assassin-cum-guidance counselor and an unlikely incarnation of Mother Nature. Which will save the world from political and ecological catastrophe--science or magic? Or is it too late? S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
