HARPERCOLL

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.

The world has changed - forever. Across America, technology has been eclipsed by magic, and people are changing into the embodiments of their darkest desires, deepest fears - and purest selves. In this new time, former lawyer Cal Griffin has united a small group of outcasts to battle the chaos.
Searching for the source of this terrifying phenomenon - and to save his sister Tina, transformed into one of the ethereal creatures known as flares - Cal and his band of unlikely heroes make their way cross country, led by the visions of Goldie, a charming lunatic, and by the fragile song of a cursed bluesman.
Their quest takes them westward to a secret haven hidden from malevolent eyes - the domain of the bluesman and his protector Magritte, a callgirl-turned-flare. But how long can even this wondrous sanctuary survive if the evil beyond it is allowed to flourish? Cal and his companions - streetwise, magical Goldie; mechanic-turned-warrior Colleen; and grief-stricken Russian physician Doc - must finish what they've started. For the world is unraveling little by little, and the salvation of everything left worth saving requires that they journey deep into the very heart and soul of darkness to face the indestructible beast ruling the Ruby City once called Chicago - a primal monster who may or may not be the Source they seek - and to confront the darkness that lies within themselves.
