Gr 10 Up
Siobhan is the sort of college student who often finds herself in the middle of things-she is someone whom others are drawn to instinctively. She is a dreamer who often finds herself wrapped up in magical visions. One night her band is going on stage when a strange event transpires that pulls Siobhan and her closest friends, and a few innocent bystanders, off on the adventure of their lives. Half of them, including Siobhan, end up in a world run by powerful wizards and inhabited by legendary creatures. The other half, including her angry, brilliant, and recently betrayed boyfriend, are sent to an advanced technological world inhabited by bizarre cyborgs. Both worlds believe themselves threatened by the other, and the looming war pits friends against friends in a terrible battle. This book will find few teen readers. The illustrations and colors are gorgeous, but while fans of high fantasy might find it intriguing, the complex plot and characters will prove challenging to follow for all but the most dedicated readers. School librarians should also be aware of some profanity, nudity, and violence.
