Marvo is a stage magician. His magic is real.
Marvo grows up without knowing his parents, without knowing his heritage, without knowing much about life.
The magicians have always been with us, since the beginning of civilisation. They fill our heads with the mist, keeping us from witnessing the stark reality of existence. But are things so bad that Marvo will bring it down on all of us, forever?
Marvo begins to understand those around him, and his place in the world; he discovers that his remarkable powers can be put to good, or to evil.
He only has to choose...

Praise and Reviews:
"Mistification begins marvelously, austere and mysterious, and it ends on a truly grand conjuration laden with emotional resonance. Warren saves her best trick for the encore performance, and it sounds out a note of such tremendous follow-through, finally, that judged only on its first and last acts, Mistification could be among the year’s most powerful dark fantasies."- Strange Horizons
"Mistification is a book like no other. That sounds cliché, but in this case it’s absolutely true."- A Fantastical Librarian
"The ending is startling and strange. The imagery and events put me in mind of a certain religious story, but this isn't in your face and readers are left to draw their own conclusions about what this means. There's certainly a lot to think about..."- WarpcoreSF
