Publisher's Summary

Physicist Dennis Nuel was the first human to probe the strange realms called anomaly worlds - alternate universes where the laws of science were unpredictably changed. But the world Dennis discovered seemed almost like our own - with one perplexing difference. To his astonishment, he was hailed as a wizard and found himself fighting beside a beautiful woman with strange powers against a mysterious warlord as he struggles to solve the riddle of this baffling world.

Just OK

Not a bad story but lacks maturity or seems a bit dated. Probably more suitable for kids than adults.

A good book and an OK performance

I first read this as a print book and bought the audio book after I lost the original. I loved the book but this performance did not quite work for me. The reader's voice just didn't gel for me. That said, it is a clever book with some remarkable ideas and it may be that coming to it fresh would be a very different experience - much like seeing a film without having read the book first. There is a lot to like about this and the blending of SF and fantasy (always difficult to pull off) works remarkably well here.
