Screenwriter and noted film critic C. Robert Cargill
continues the story begun in his acclaimed debut Dreams and Shadows in this bold and brilliantly crafted tale
involving fairies and humans, magic and monsters—a vivid phantasmagoria that
combines the imaginative wonders of Neil Gaiman, the visual inventiveness of
Guillermo Del Toro, and the shocking miasma of William S. Burroughs.
Six months have passed since the wizard Colby lost his best
friend to an army of fairies from the Limestone Kingdom, a realm of mystery and
darkness beyond our own. But in vanquishing these creatures and banning them
from Austin, Colby sacrificed the anonymity that protected him. Now, word of
his deeds has spread, and powerful enemies from the past-including one Colby
considered a friend—have resurfaced to exact their revenge.
As darkness gathers around the city, Colby sifts through his
memories desperate to find answers that might save him. With time running out,
and few of his old allies and enemies willing to help, he is forced to turn for
aid to forces even darker than those he once battled.
Following such masters as Lev Grossman, Erin Morgenstern,
Richard Kadrey, and Kim Harrison, C. Robert Cargill takes us deeper into an
extraordinary universe of darkness and wonder, despair and hope to reveal the
magic and monsters around us … and inside us. Download and start listening now!
