They knew us before we began to walk upright. Shamans called them guardians, mythmakers called them tricksters, pagans called them gods, churchmen called them demons, folklorists called them shape-shifters. They've obligingly taken any role we've assigned them, and, while needing nothing from us, have accepted whatever we thought was their due? love, hate, fear, worship, condemnation, neglect, oblivion. Even in modern times, when their existence is doubted or denied, they continue to extend invitations to those who would travel a different road, a road not found on any of our cultural maps. But now, perceiving us as a threat to life itself, they issue their invitations with a dark purpose of their own.

In this dazzling metaphysical thriller, four who put themselves in the hands of these all-but-forgotten Others venture across a sinister American landscape hidden from normal view, finding their way to interlocking destinies of death, terror, transcendental rapture, and shattering enlightenment.

Listener Opinions

    " I am a huge fan of the Ishmael books and Quinn's non-fiction but this one disappointed me. It took a long time for the various pieces of the story to come together and make any sense. In the end I didn't care about any of the characters or the religious message underneath. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephen | 11/13/2013

    " It's almost impossible to have an opinion about this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jasmine | 11/6/2013

    " Bizarre. If you are going to read just one book by Daniel Quinn, read Ishmael. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwayne | 11/2/2013

    " Ishmael, story of B and my Ishmael cover this information better. But this book is more about the story than the message. A good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan Ofman | 10/26/2013

    " Started off too slow for my liking. I only got through 100 pages before I gave up on it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pauline | 10/15/2013

    " Pretty darned weird book. It's like watching one of those indie films with a point so vague as to leave you lost at the end of it. Read this on only if you like dangling endings. It does, however, do a complete wrap up at the end. Problem is, the ending is more than a bit of a dud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 6/29/2013

    " It started out a bit slow, and the plot is a bit crazy at times, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rick | 3/22/2013

    " I found this book to be extremely dull!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judith | 2/6/2013

    " Fantasy, science fiction, theology, philosophy, adventure...great story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anneke Penn | 12/4/2012

    " So I'm even more convinced that all of his many, albeit, different works are great!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlaann | 12/2/2012

    " Not as good as Ishmael or the story of B, but interesting. The first half of the book was really intriguing; I was mildly disappointed with the ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 kiki | 11/24/2012

    " I've loved the other things of his that I've read. Frankly, they've been life-changing books. But this one sucked. I actually finished and said "whaaaaa??? what just happened? wtf was that about?" Utterly disappointing. Sigh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 brianne | 11/6/2012

    " This was a really fun book. Not as "preachy" as some of Quinn's others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnny | 3/26/2012

    " Another world collapsing work by the Quinnster. Highly Recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie | 2/9/2012

    " This book was so promising, and it began strong, with some interesting stuff going on and a good storyline. It just didn't pan out. The second half did not deliver. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 11/3/2011

    " I just started. I'll let you know... "
