Overview

Tim Hunter, the celebrated boy magician created by Neil Gaiman, returns in a new series plotted by Neil Gaiman himself! Taking place ten minutes into the future, in alternate universes where battles on Earth and Faerie overlap, this new take on the Hunter is loaded with dystopian undercurrents and psychological horror, set against a background of contemporary global politics. As a war rages in one universe, trapping John Constantine and Zatanna in a deadly siege, their only hope, Hunter, seems happily ensconced in another universe where not even a hint of magic exists. But can Tim truly escape his destiny as the most powerful magician in existence? And if so, what will the consequences be? SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This work's psychedelic cover by Frank Quitely promises weirdness within, and Spencer and Ormston don't disappoint, aided by a plot assist from series creator Neil Gaiman. A continuation of the adventures of Tim Hunter from the previous Books of Magick series, this volume doesn't require a grounding in the backstory. Yet it isn't too straightforward. There are two very distinct worlds here. The first is suffused with magic, where humanity (also known as the "Bred" and led by magician John Constantine) is fighting a losing war against the "Born," magic beings led by the Faerie Queen. The "Coalition," an alliance of humans and magic creatures, has joined the Bred in placing their hopes in the "Hunter," a missing messiah for mankind. That savior is Tim Hunter, the man fated to be the world's greatest magician. He's hiding out in the second world, a universe he has created where there is no magic, no war, no dreams and where he has no knowledge of his past or his destiny. Ormston's expressionistic art and Fiona Stephenson's acidic colors set an appropriate visual tone. This book's situations are left unresolved at the end, and readers who manage to find a way through the story's convolutions will likely want more. (Mar.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
