MAGIC TIME: ANGELFIRE by Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff and Marc Scott Zicree (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“A terrific story featuring powerful, strong characters…a must for fans of post-apocalyptic fiction.” (Booklist)
Across America, technology has been eclipsed by magic. Seeking the source of this terrible phenomenon, former lawyer Cal Griffin and his band of unlikely heroes journey into the soul of darkness to confront the beast ruling the Ruby City once called Chicago.
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 four of Blackstone Audio’s award-winning narrators. 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.

RATING: Suitable for adults interested in post-apocalyptic fantasy
The world has changed forever. Across America, technology has been eclipsed by magic, and ordinary people become the embodiments of their darkest desires, deepest fears, purest selves.
To save his sister, Tina, who has been transformed into one of the ethereal creatures known as flares, former lawyer Cal Griffin seeks out the source of this terrifying phenomenon. Cal and his band of unlikely heroes follow the song of a cursed bluesman and the visions of the charming lunatic Goldie to a secret haven, exempt from the malevolent power. But as the outside world unravels, the salvation of everything left worth saving requires that Cal and his companions journey deep into the soul of darkness to confront the beast ruling the Ruby City once called Chicago.
