Magic, the kind you find in storybooks, is necessarily made up since few people in the real world know how it works. But the author who concocts the fictional rules is forced to stick to them, lest the reader cry foul. So he needs to put a label to something that’s nearly impossible to grasp by ordinary people and lay out rules and boundaries for something amorphous and nebulous.

Mr. Tracey certainly does his best as he attempts to give the reader insight into a boy whose magic seems to manifest through his eyes, accompanied by skull-crushing visions and crippling migraines. The stream of consciousness that attends these visions both elucidates the mystery of Braden’s gift and makes it thoroughly inexplicable.

Along with all this is a feud between two rival families, a possible homoerotic attraction to the wrong side and a mysterious figure who might be benefactor or malefactor—if only Braden could figure out which. The entire story has an eldritch feel that mixes uneasily with local politics. With an uncertain ending and uneasy romance, this is a magical game of a different kind, one that constantly keeps the reader guessing as to its outcome, the nature of the game and the identity of the players.

Boring. Unless you can take in all the magic terminology and the characters. Maybe I was not paying so much attention, but I found I could not get halfway through this book.
