"Tom Taylor has spent his entire life a prisoner of his father's literary legacy-- and the famous, fictional boy wizard, Tommy Taylor, whose name he shares. But now he's a prisoner of an entirely different kind. Framed for the murder of a houseful of famous authors by forces he's only beginning to comprehend, Tom finds himself behind bars in a foreign land. Prison walls may keep him inside, but they won't keep out his powerful enemies-- who want him as dead as his supposed victims. Tom's about to discover that his father's escapist stories may be his only hope of escaping. But as the wall between fact and fiction become weaker, woe to those who find themselves in the way when it collapses. After all, not every story has a happy ending--"--P. [4] of cover
Tom Taylor's life was screwed from the word go. His father created the mega-popular Tommy Taylor boy-wizard fantasy novels. But dad modeled the fictional epic so closely to Tom that fans constantly compare him to his counterpart, turning him into a lame, Z-level celebrity. When a scandal hints that Tom might really be the boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a mysterious, deadly group that's secretly kept tabs on him all his life. Now, to protect his life and discover the truth behind his origins, Tom will travel the world, to all the places in world history where fictions have shaped reality

This volume delves more into the mythology of who or what Tom Taylor is and the dark side of confusing fantasy and reality. It's neat how the authors incorporate modern mass media into the story.

When a book is read, an irrevocable thing happens-- a murder, followed by an imposture. The story in the mind murders the story on the page, and takes its place.
