First I love the way the magical elements are woven credibly into the fabric of the story They are simultane

    PDF/EPUB Tim Powers Ä PDF/EPUB Last Call Epub ¼ Ä pamyatnik.pro last download, call free, Last Call PDFFormer professional poker player Scott Crane's life is falling apart having just lost his wife and been on a beer binge when aspects of his past have come back to haunt him Specifically a bizarre card game twenty years before where he may have lost his soul But what do his foster father and foster sister have to do with it? And why is everyone trying to kill him?Last Call is really hard to summarize accurately You could say it was about a man who lost his soul and tried to win it back Or you could say it was a modern retelling of the Fisher King legend Or a story about Bugsy Siegel and the rise of Las Vegas Or you could say it was all of those things and The story started slow establishing what had happened before and giving the reader hints at the magic Powers was working That portion reminded me of Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light both books about ancient gods or archetypes in the modern world Onc
