Jenny Ng missed her last appointment, was hit by a car, and was hired by a magician on the same day. And those aren't even remotely the strangest things that happened to her this summer. Jenny's a typical New Yorker, too jaded too early, struggling to get by in the big city. Of course, the typical New Yorker rarely has to deal with very large and sardonic horses, magic swords, severed limbs, and mirror images that refuse to cooperate with all that reflecting business. But Jenny learns to cope. With the help of a clever conjurer, a few feckless friends, and eugh Grim Reapers to fill out a football league, it's up to Jenny to learn the finer points of Life and Death...and save the world while she's at it. Geoph Essex's fast and fearless prose combines the wit of Douglas Adams, the quirk of Christopher Moore, and the inventive mythology of Neil Gaiman in an adventure that spans galaxies without ever straying too far from the familiar.
