Publisher's Summary

Computer programmer Joanna Sheraton must rescue an imprisoned wizard to save the universe from destruction

There was a time when Joanna Sheraton knew nothing of the Void. She was an ordinary computer programmer, toiling in a cubicle in air-conditioned Southern California comfort, unaware that sinister forces had penetrated her universe. But from across the interdimensional divide, an evil mage had put in motion a scheme for eternal life by transferring himself into a computer that feeds on Earth’s life force. Called upon to help by the wizard Antryg, Joanna could do nothing more than delay. At the end of her first sojourn across the Void, Antryg was imprisoned and their task seemed hopeless.

Now she must depart from Earth once more, to rescue Antryg and save humanity. She is friendless, and the dark mage’s forces hound her every step. But a good hacker is not easily deterred.

Great Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Silicon Mage to be better than the print version?

Great story, really a mix of fantasy/mystery/romance. Writing style is fantastic and the reader was really really good.

Have you listened to any of Nicole Poole’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I had not listened to her before. She was an excellent reader.

Beautifully Descriptive!

I have loved this series since it came out. T story is great and the writer has a beautiful use of figurative language the constantly gives a visceral experience of what the characters are experience. The reader was great and portrayed the characters so that I didn't even once think about the voice not changing for each character. Highly recommended!!!

Loved it!

Took me a chapter or so to get into the 1st book but, once in, I was hooked. This one I found hard to stop listening to. We read!
