Simon is deeply loved by his widowed father, Jack, yet even a father's dedication is helpless against the psychic terrors that overwhelm Simon from his earliest years. Matyas takes refuge from his father's violence in fantasies of magical citiesa then true magic enters his life when he sees a man fly. Obsessed with becoming a magician and fixated on learning to fly himself, Matyas runs away to the capital, where he learns of a mysterious, long-lost Tarot of Eternity. Matyas and Simon both suffer the same horrific visions: a dark tunnel, pieces of bodies, disembodied heads of children pleading for help. When a new boy's body is found without a head Matyas learns a terrible secret: a magician can live forever by devouring the lives of children. The magician who does this has hidden his name so no one can work a spell against him. He is the Child Eater. Terrified of his son's nightmares, Jack enlists the help of the mysterious Dr. Reina. Soon however Simon realizes Reina means him ill. Is this mysterious doctor really The Child Eater and Simon is his next victim? Can the spirit of Simon's long-dead mother and the power of Matyas' Tarrot deck save him and the world? With a battle against evil that stretches across centuries, Rachel Pollack, has created a thrilling world of magic, memory, and desire that will enchant readers far and wide."
