Emilo Haversack is unusually worried for a kender - though he can't for the life of him remember what his problem is. Still, he's been wandering across Ansalon for quite some time, trying to remember what's wrong. All he can recall is the name of a very evil, very dead wizard...Fistandantilus. Joined by a young kendermaid, a human lad, and a devout, if somewhat naive priest, Emilo is drawn into a mysterious quest.

Joel Byram is an everyday 22nd century guy. He spends his days training artificial-intelligence engines to act more human, jamming out to 1980s new wave - an extremely obscure genre - and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. Joel is pretty much an everyday guy with everyday problems - until he's accidentally duplicated while teleporting. Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves.

One of the best books I've listened to or read in a long time. Klein makes you think and entertains at the same time. As another reviewer said, this is 1984 meets the prestige was a 1980's flare. Matt Mercer does a fantastic job. I forgot I was listening to one person's voice. Just listen to this book. You won't be disappointed.

I listened to this entire book on a long flight. I don't typically read memoirs. They make me stressed about my own life accomplishments, or lack thereof. I truly enjoyed every moment of this book. Felicia Day did a great job making the material relatable and with a flourish of humor. I've been a fan of Felicia for years, everything from the Guild and Doctor Horrible to the many programs at Geek and Sundry. Aside from being a fun read, this book inspired me to have a new resolve for the things I love, no matter how weird. I cannot praise this book enough.
