The world has changed forever. Across America, technology has been eclipsed by magic, and people are changing into the embodiments of their darkest desires and deepest fears. In this new time, former lawyer Cal Griffin has united a small group of outcasts to battle the chaos. Searching for the source of the unholy phenomenon, and to save Cal's sister, Tina, these unlikely heroes make their way cross country, led by the visions of a lunatic and the fragile song of a blind man. Hidden within ancient burial mounds, a secret paradise may offer the chance of hope, if they can find Tina. But first they must make their way to Chicago to battle a primal monster, and the darkness within themselves.

Quite enjoyable, but...

This book was very interesting in the concept for the story. The only problem with it was that it is actually the middle book in a trilogy (which is not made clear anywhere) so the story seems to start in the middle of something, and doesn't come to a solid conclusion since the story continues beyond this book. Plus there are references to things that happened in the first book all through this one, and it made me wonder what had happened in the first book that I had missed. I would recomend getting ahold of the first book before listening to this one.

This was an excellent audio book. The script was well written and the narration was excellent. The story is very catching (about 15 hours worth, I finished it in under three days)and doesn't let you stop listening. Only downfall is that it is the SECOND story in the trilogy. Hopefully will obtain the first and final books. I am very much looking forward to hearing them.
