MAGIC TIME by Marc Scott Zicree and Barbara Hambly (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “One of the most interesting and promising new fantasy series to come along.” (Orlando Sentinel) For young lawyer Cal Griffin, it’s just another New York day, full of stress, screw-ups, deadlines, and anxiety—that is, until the city is rocked by a series of bizarre tremors and he is engulfed in the surreal chaos of a new world of nightmare and wonder. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s celebrity narrator, Armin Shimerman. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “The best new dose of magic to hit the world of fantasy literature in a long time.” (Orson Scott Card) • EXPERIENCE. About 15.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players. • PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap. • SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing. • CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average. • CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come. • OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed. • AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again. • TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed. • FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas. RATING: Suitable for adults who are fans of urban fantasy or the Magic Time series. ___________________ When an overworked team of government physicists unwittingly invites something catastrophic into the world, rising young New York lawyer Cal Griffin is forced into a strange new role in a world of nightmare and wonder. A spinster schoolteacher, a lonely miner, a refugee doctor, a visionary street person, and a brooding Secret Service agent all share a staggering responsibility with the young attorney to make sense of the surreal chaos and to follow an awesome destiny, for they are to be soldiers in a titanic battle between darkness and light. And its raging hellfires will affect the most astonishing transformation of all—turning a young man of pure heart into that rarest of creatures: a hero.
