Cunningham’s latest offering is an absorbing tale of role-playing, magic and the danger that can ensue when boundaries between the real and the make-believe disappear. Cunningham does an excellent job of balancing two parallel worlds, bringing the reader into both with a complete, distinct understanding. Intelligent storytelling and compelling characters add to this fascinating read.

Andrew, Shelby, Carl and Ingrid are graduate students by day at Plains University. But around midnight, in a wooded park known as Wascana, they role-play, each becoming different characters in a game. Wascana becomes Anfractus, a magical city where they each wield special skills and powers. These are two distinct, separate lives and worlds — until things suddenly change. The four learn about an assassination plot that could spell trouble for both worlds. As the magical world bleeds into their everyday reality, these mild-mannered students need to make things right — and soon. (ACE, Aug., 336 pp., $7.99)
