Description

"Courtney masterfully builds a world of intrigue, magic and suspense, while spinning a fresh and inventive story rich with detail and tangible characters." Shanan Winters, Editor "Incredibly thought provoking..." -Amazon AU review for "Balance," a prequel to "The Magician" Where is the line between hero and villain? How much darkness does it take to become evil, and is there a grey area? What would you sacrifice for the sake of justice? Connor's life has never been easy. After his father committed suicide when he was just a few months old, he was forced to grow up under the shadow of questions, darkness, and the bitterness of his depression-plagued mother. But now he's off to college, and when he takes a momento from his father's life with him - a pocket watch he found in the attic - he expects it will be only that: a momento. But soon the pocket watch begins to act in strange ways, and he meets three new friends who all have oddly similar backgrounds to his own. When he begins to have strange dreams that blur the lines between reality and imagination, this world and those beyond it, and the shape of time itself, he discovers that the pocket watch is far more than a trinket. That there was more to his father's death than even his father knew. And that he and his newfound companions will be forced to play integral roles in a cosmic battle between truth and power; justice and revenge; good and evil. Follow Connor on his journey into the Void, a world between worlds where time as we know it ceases to exist, nothing is as it seems, and the fate of our universe hangs in the balance. Sometimes the answers are more painful than the questions. Sometimes what you believe is only a variation of what is real. And sometimes uncovering the truth is only the beginning...show more
