It was just an ordinary day for Josh and Sophie?until Mr. John Dee showed up with his Golems.
With this, two ordinary twins are catapulted into a frantic race for their lives. What makes this story so different from most sword-and-sorcery tales is the wedge that occurs between the two twins. Temptation is presented by a most amiable villain and suddenly the borders between good and evil aren?t necessarily so clear.
While I?m not necessarily happy to embark on another series that goes on indefinitely (this novel ends with the intimation that the journey is only just beginning for Josh and Sophie), this is a fantastic tale of chancy decisions, prolonged life and just what it means to be ?human?.
