GEIST

Image of Geist (A Book of the Order)

In Geist, Ballantine takes the reader deep within a mystical order of magical Adepts and Sensitives charged to protect society from the gothic horrors of the Otherworld. While at times predictable, the true richness of Geist lies in the intricate detailing of runic magic, gothic summoning and political intrigue.

Attacks from the undead and demons of the Otherworld have dramatically strained the Orders’ limited resources. In these desperate times Sorcha Faris — a powerful and experienced Adept — is paired with an inexperienced Sensitive fresh out of training. Together they start a journey that quickly becomes anything but routine as horrors leap at them from the shadows and even darker places. With all the old rules of magic seemingly broken, Sorcha questions everything she believed and finds answers, both stunning and horrific. (ACE, Nov., 304 pp., $7.99)
