Magnus Flyte is a pen name for the writing duo of, Meg Howrey and Christina Lynch. Howrey is the author of the novels, The Cranes Dance and Blind Sight. She lives in Los Angeles. Lynch, who lives near Sequoia National Park, is a television writer and journalist.
Sarah Weston is looking for a cure for her friend, Pollina, a blind teenage composer who is on the cusp of greatness. But, her life force is running out and time is a precious thing. As Sarah twists her way through the storyline she does so while taking mind-altering drugs: drugs that allow her to jump from one time to another, all the while being pursued by a treacherous foe.
Flyte has blended mystery, science-fi, alchemy and even some fantasy all into one neat little package. And, they have done so seamlessly!!
Readers will be swept away to wonderful corners of the globe while the writers bring the places and surroundings to life with their intricate and detailed descriptions. I have never visited Prague or Vienna, but since reading CITY OF LOST DREAMS, it is as though the memories of Prague and Vienna were my own. Hats off to the writers for such wonderful descriptions!
I like to call this novel, the thinking man’s (or woman’s) fiction. With detailed and intelligent passages, I felt smarter just reading this tale filled with science and alchemy and even some history for good measure.
The two authors have blended their voices so well that the story flows effortlessly and smoothly.
I can’t say enough good things about this novel, and look forward to the next installment in the series.
I am giving CITY OF LOST DREAMS, a 5-spider rating and urging EVERYONE to get out there and give this series a shot…you will not be disappointed!!
