Short_Synopsis: In this magic shop the magic is real. And the trick is on you.

Citrus Glade is a dying town that needs new businesses, but the one that just opened is doing much more harm than good. Lyle Millerā s magic shop seems to only stock what its select customers desire. When four outcast boys buy common party tricks, only Lyle knows what those tricks can really do. As subtle changes occur around town, a few residents realize that something is amiss. But it may be too late. Lyleā s black magic has empowered more townspeople to help him execute his Grand Adventure, a plan that will reduce the town, and half the state, to rubble.

“Lake Wobegon meets The Omen in this curiously charming horror novel. The result is surprisingly touching and compulsively readable.”
—Publisher’s Weekly

“James (Dark Inspiration; Sacrifice) has a talent for combining action-packed vignettes into a powerful, fast-paced whole. Vivid cinematic images make this a quick, gory read for the horror fan.” —Library Journal
