Peter Warlock is a magician with a dark secret. Every night, he amazes audiences at his private theater in New York, where he performs feats that boggle the imagination. But his day job is just a cover for his otherworldly pursuits: Peter is a member of an underground group of psychics who gaze into the future to help prevent crimes.

No one, not even his live-in girlfriend, knows the truth about Peter--until the séance when he foresees an unspeakable act of violence that will devastate the city. As Peter and his friends rush to prevent tragedy, Peter discovers that a shadowy cult of evil psychics, the Order of Astrum, know all about his abilities. They are hunting him and his fellow psychics down, one by one, determined to silence them forever.

Dark Magic is a genre-bending supernatural thriller from national bestselling novelist and real-life magician James Swain.

I agree with prior comments: not enough character depth. Females are vapid and inconstant. The demonology is shallow. The concept of children being able to enter into contract with Satan is novel. Should've been developed more elaborately. On the plus side, it's a quick read!

Little character development. Dialogue not realistic

Didn't care about the characters as much as I had hoped although it's a good plot. Just didn't leave me wanting more. Kinda left me bored.
