Terminal City (Book One in the Terminal City Saga)


Mason Cross never wanted to be
anything like his father

Mason Cross never wanted to be anything like his father, a famous professor who, it turns out, was also a necromancer. But death changes people.

Now Mason is following in his dead dadís footsteps, down a dark, solitary path between two competing lives: one as a student at Terminal Cityís top university, the other as a necromancer.

But will he find the answers heís looking for? Or will he find only death, caught in a hidden war between necromancers and a religious inquisition?

As the gravity of both worlds bears down on him, Mason will need to discover not just new poweróbut what a human life is really worth.

Reviews:

"Once introduced to the world of unseen things, Mason is delivered as a complex hard-edged young man who takes joining the ranks of his fatherís powerful friends, the Necromancers, in an epic battle against the Inquisitors in stride. This is a fast-paced, well-written entertaining book and a good way to pass time. The plot never lags, and it is pleasantly easy to stay immersed in the darkish underworld of the book." - Anne Volmering

"The book opens with fairly standard coming-of-age material in a world very like our own but with just a touch of the fantastic. The first third is setup, and the rest of the book is page-turning payoff as Melanson subverts the tropes he's introduced and plays skillfully with the reader's expectations. Clearly familiar with authors like Neil Gaiman and China Mieville, Melanson's first novel sets forth into similar territory and proves he's learned from those who've trod that ground before. As a first novel, it's comparable to Gaiman's Neverwhere - strong potential, with excellent writing and imagery that compels you to keep reading.

"Melanson's built himself a world to play in, and I can't wait for the next book. I only wonder what that bridge ever did to the author to deserve what he did to it." - Eric M Gauf

"This book was really a fun read for me." - Frank, Fearshop

"Riveting read from start to finish. Highly imaginative romp into the dark side with complex characters. I found myself liking the bad ones as much as the good ones; indeed the lines between 'good' and 'bad' were often blurred. Action packed, and never a dull moment; the author paints incredible pictures of an alternative Vancouver (Terminal City) as well as other layers of the necromancer's reality, and the flow back and forth between the two." - Linda Nickerson

"The theme which kept arising was provocative, who was really evil and who was really good? I look forward to the other books in the series." - Melanie Nichols Kiser

"Terminal City delivers. Every character had me hooked. They challenged me to think beyond popular preconceptions of protagonist/antagonist paradigms, to what shapes a personís character and their approach to their unique situations." - Ariane Fleischmann

"Lots of mayham, excellent descriptive passages and good character development." - florabundi, Library Thing

"Terminal City has a solid magic systems and action packed second half that manages to balance exploring compelling broken characters and philosophical themes. I enjoyed this novel a lot and would heartily recommend it." - Dgilmour, Goodreads

"Lots of mayhem, excellent descriptive passages and good character development." - Brenda Mcallister
