A world awash in a rising tide of magic. Hard not to like. But I wish he'd spent more time with the evil twin, the character I really liked. Damien was a bit of a wash-out. I really liked the world-portrayal, the strangeness of it all, but there wasn't enough of it to carry the book on its own.

I've read this book more than a couple of times over the years.A nixe mixture of occult, mystery and emotional drama.

Since WWII magic has slowly seeped into the world, generating Minotaurs of people fears and beliefs and creating Angels who channel magic.Dante is a repressed Angel, who is brittle with the fear of what he might become, and consequently lacking in forward drive. His brother Jet is marked by his fathers gambling away the soul of his firstborn son, always questing for his own secret past, longing to belong, always feeling left on the outside. Jets find of Dantes corpse in his old bedroom starts of a strange adventure where Dante performs an autopsy on his own corpse, channels ghosts, and resurrects the dead. All in the belief that he is about to die, and in order to resolve jets problems with his unknown origin.Resurrection Man foreshadows themes Stewart explores further in Galveston, and it is interesting to see how society deals with a more insidious magic, a magic that slowly corrupts a causality that is taken for granted, and the concepts that are developed to address it.It is obvious thas is an earlier work than the amazing Galveston, it appear less cohesive and complete. The characters are welldrawn and threedimensional, the world is well conceived and described.
