A troubled occultist-sorcerer confronts a gritty Seattle underbelly in this dark and unique urban fantasy.
Markham has returned to Seattle searching for Katarina, the girl who, a decade ago, quite literally tore his soul from his body. What he discovers instead is dark magick of an ancient and destructive kind.
His encounter with a desperate spirit leaping from host to host sets Markham on the trail of a secretive cabal of magicians whose past is strangely linked to his own. Armed with the Chorus, a phantasmal chain of human souls which he wields as a weapon of will, Markham must engage in a magickal battle whose stakes prove to be earth shatteringly high.
From Mark Teppo comes an explosive, action-packed occult thriller combining Western magick, Hermetic traditions, and shamanism.
