A man who controls the magic of numbers is on the run in a sci-fi novel that “heads off into uncharted territory . . . stretching the bounds of what is possible” (Quill & Quire).
Dom is a numerate, someone able to see and control the magical power of numbers. Everything from license plates and credit cards to baseball statistics feed the considerable abilities of Dom and his kind. Grifters and gamblers, numerates search for—and fight over—the world’s most mathematically powerful artifacts.
While seeking a mathematical item of immense power that has only been whispered about, everything goes south for Dom. He finds himself on the run across three countries on two continents, with two unlikely companions in tow and a numerate of unfathomable strength hot on his tail. Along the way he faces giant creatures of stone and earth, statues that come alive, numerical wonders cast over hundreds of years, and the very real possibility that he won’t make it out alive. And one of his companions holds a secret so powerful it could change the lives of numerates forever.
