Publisher's Summary

Twentysomething bartender Jason Bishop's world is shattered when his estranged father commits suicide, but the greater shock comes when he learns his father was a secret agent in the employ of the Invisible Hand, an ancient society of spies wielding magic in a centuries-spanning war. Now, the Golden Dawn, the shadowy cabal of witches and warlocks responsible for Daniel Bishop's murder and for the death of Jason's mother years before, have Jason in their sights. His survival will depend on mastering his own dormant magic abilities, providing he makes it through the training.

From New York to Paris and to a world between worlds, Jason's journey through the realm of magic will be fraught with peril. But with enemies and allies on both sides of this war, whom can he trust? The Invisible Hand, who have been more of a family than his own family ever was? The Golden Dawn, who may know the secrets behind his mysterious lineage?

For Jason Bishop, only one thing is for certain: The magic he has slowly been mastering is telling him not to trust anybody.

    "Not bad."

    Ran better than I thought it would and over all it maintained an interesting profile for a story. Surprise me. Expected it to be story that suddenly became a lead in to a series. Though, that could still happen.

    "Good start"

    This was a great, fast paced, easily read, action packed story. It was very interesting and worth the read. The world within Magicians Impossible is enthralling and fascinating, but it's paired with a simple, to a point of it seeming convenient plot. I felt like there was more story to read, but there were no more words. The ending gave me no resolution whatsoever because the entire story read in a very run of the mill way.

    Which really sucked because the characters are awesome; all the supporting characters and foes (there are many) are all terrific. There are twist and turns in this fantasy paranormal novel.

    The mundanes, humans without magic, live in a world unaware that magic exists. In this world, changes in the mundane world are not permanent. There are 2 fractions fighting each other. The Invisible Hand which stands for Order, and the Golden Dawn which stands for chaos. The Invisible Hand is comprised of actual mages, while the Golden Dawn is comprised of wizards, (non-magical humans who cast spells).

    The protagonist is Jason. He is a thirty-year-old bartender. We meet him going to the funeral of his estranged father who committed suicide. His world is turned upside down when he is told that his father was a magician. That begins his discovery of his magic.

    Jason is with the Invisible Hand, the same organization as his father. Jason’s father was murdered by the Red Queen of the Golden Dawn. These groups are chasing the Sphere of Destiny. Of course, Jason is the main character needed in obtaining and using the sphere. The Hogwarts of Magicians Impossible is the Citadel. It is filled with doors to every location on Earth. It is pretty much impregnable.

    Jason begins as a person who needs love and to believe in something. Finding his magic and others like him infuses him with life. As he is drawn further and further into the conflict between The Invisible Hand and The Golden Dawn, he finds that he is not sure who he can trust, if anybody. At that point Brad Abraham plants to many twist and turns in the plot that it becomes overwhelming.

    I'm a person who really needs to know the why. I like things to make sense and be justified. I know the reader must suspend their belief in things to enjoy the paranormal. A few of the major things were not sufficiently explained that I had to take off points.

    There is lots of action with mages and wizards blinking around the world chasing each other for the elusive sphere. There is a great fight in Paris. At this point the action is moving at such a fast paced that I had to go over some parts.

    The characters repeat that magic is an illusion. It was a mantra that saved Jason. There was a major question of why and how at the end of the book that was left as a cliff hanger. This was another reason for a deduction of a star.

    Brad Abraham has great characters and world to build a series. Jason is trained and there are mages and wizards who need to help shape the new age.
