Bookish Review: Advent
Hundreds of years later, a young boy sees things that he is told are not real. He is sent by his parents to stay with his aunt, when weird things continue to happen. Soon, Dr. Faustus is unleashed on the world again, magic is back, and ordinary people start to see extraordinary things. A few powerful children willl have to fight Faust as he attempts to control all the magical power in the world--no matter the cost.
This is the start of a trilogy, and was quite a compelling read. Recommended.
Atria Books sent me a free galley copy of this book for review. Their generosity did not affect the content of the above review.
