Synopsis

Synopsis

Marvo is a stage magician. His magic is real.

Marvo grows up without knowing his parents, without knowing his heritage, without knowing much about life.
The magicians have always been with us, since the beginning of civilisation. They fill our heads with the mist, keeping us from witnessing the stark reality of existence. But are things so bad that Marvo will bring it down on all of us, forever?

Marvo begins to understand those around him, and his place in the world; he discovers that his remarkable powers can be put to good, or to evil.

He only has to choose...

Praise

Praise

Chosen for the Locus Best Fantasy List 2011

"Mistification could be among the year's most powerful dark fantasies." -Niall Alexander, Strange Horizons

"Misitification is a book like no other. That sounds cliché, but in this case it's absolutely true ... [it] is at once weirdly bizarre and utterly fascinating. It's a tale that'll make you think about the world and the way we view it, about how much our perception shapes our reality." -A Fantastical Librarian

Praise for previous titles:

"Slights is a rusted blade of a book, cutting away at the reader's comfortable expectations until only bitter bones are left; a delightful middle class suburban fright."
- Jay Lake

"It's a masterpiece of voice, a bleak and haunting novel that gets its hooks into you and yanks, all the while scratching its broken nails down the blackboard of your psyche. Kaaron Warren has set the standard by which all future Australian horror novels will have to be judged."
- Trent Jamieson

"Like walking from a dream into a mythical land both familiar and delightfully strange. A tale of tolerance and survival, in a fascinating and beautifully realised world."
- Trudi Canavan, author of the Black Magician Trilogy

"Kaaron Warren is a fresh, amazingly talented voice out of Australia. You must read her work."
- Ellen Datlow
