Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rupert Venables is a Magid.

It's a Magid's job to oversee what goes on in the vast Multiverse. Actually, Rupert is really only a junior Magid. But he's got a king-sized problem. Rupert's territory includes Earth and the Empire of Korfyros. When his mentor dies Rupert must find a replacement. But there are hundreds of candidates. How is he supposed to choose? And interviewing each one could take forever.

Unless...

What if he could round them all up in one place?

Simple!

Review:

"An orchestrated riot, with tangled plots, bizarre doings, headlong pace, and foaming wit." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The author...displays a marked talent for lighthearted, engagingly written fantasy filled with tongue-in-cheek dialog and intriguing characters. A good selection for fantasy and YA collections." Library Journal

Review:

"[A] thoroughly involving book. Jones is one of those natural storytellers: her books compel reading. The characters are real, and very likable. The plot is exciting, and resolved logically." Rich Horton, SF Site
