Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jason fighting the forces of evil and learning about his powers is an amusing and captivating adventure.” Booklist (starred review)
“Crackling prose and kinetic characters make Abraham’s debut a winner.” Pierce Brown, New York Times bestselling author
“Abraham creates a sympathetic lead in Jason…The premise of espionage between dueling secret magical societies is exciting, but the added family drama gives this outing extra dimension. Verdict: From its action-packed opening sequence, this is a cinematic, fast-paced debut from a writer more known in comics, television, and film.” Library Journal (starred review)
“From the first sentence, Brad Abraham pulls you in to a darkly magical, energetic world where anything can happen and pulls the rug out from under you when you least expect it.” Rodrigo Gudiño, founder, Rue Morgue magazine
“Urban fantasy hasn’t felt this fresh—or this compulsively readable—since Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Brad Abraham has conjured a pitch-perfect fever dream of myth, magic, intrigue, and pulse-pounding action, set in a vividly imagined underworld of dangerous cabals and supernatural espionage. It’s a spell you won’t want to break.” April Snellings, author of Food Chain
“Part hard-boiled thriller, part magical mayhem, Magicians Impossible is a page-turning adventure where the stakes are high and the magic is mind-blowing. It’s urban fantasy at its very best.” Lisa Maxwell, author of The Last Magician
Magicians Impossible is a mindbending page-turner! A brilliant and unique mashup of spells, myth, and mayhem, once it got its claws in me I couldn’t put it down. Like a veteran stage magician, Brad Abraham has created a hip thriller that turns convention on its ear with misdirection and mayhem. A must-read for enthusiasts of edgy and extreme fiction.” Don Coscarelli, award-winning film director, producer, and screenwriter
