Science. Magic. Both sources of unimaginable power. All that prevents ultimate control, ultimate power, is that science and magic do not exist in equality in the same dimension.

1 . Great concept, fails to deliver.
Posted January 11, 2010 by Scott , Northern NJI just finished reading this book, and I must say I am disappointed. I love the concept, and the writing itself is quite good. However, the story itself just goes nowhere. In fact, the whole book seems to be just fragments of short stories. Just when you are getting to the heart of the action, the story fragment ends, and you are left wanting. There is something there, it just feels unfinished and honestly, a bit chaotic. this would make a good intro book to a series, and in fact, feels like the intro chapters to several books in a series, a series spanning several generations.
I would be hesitant to buy this book, or to read anything else by this author. Which is a shame, because as I mentioned, I like the writing itself. Just not the story/stories/fragments.

Excerpt from The Science of Magic by Peter Prellwitz
October 12, 2953
Miss Hennessy had always been pretty, Kerri decided on the first day of school. She was pretty in their normal classroom in the puterverse, where her brilliant pinks and glowing blacks always excited the children with the way the colors wrapped and floated around her body. And now that Kerri was seeing her in real life for the first time since school started two months ago, she was even more pretty than in the puterverse. With a keen child's sense, Kerri could see Miss Hennessy as she looked when she was a little girl like her: small frame, brown hair, blue eyes and even the same smile, with the same missing front tooth, the grownup tooth not quite ready to show.
Kerri Marks had only been in school for two years; but at the age of six, she was quite certain no one was as nice and wonderful and pretty as her teacher, Miss Hennessy. And now they were in the same room!
"All right, children!" Miss Hennessy said in a firm voice that she softened by a smile. "Let's all have a seat on the floor and introduce ourselves properly. I'm just as eager to know you as you are to see me." She sat down on the floor and carefully spread her long skirt out just perfect. The nine children; bouncing around only seconds before, hurriedly settled down, sitting on the soft, warm floor around her.
