Imajica Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Imajica

Imajica is the name for the five dimensions, of which Earth is the fifth, and the only one to be unreconciled - out of contact with the other four. Every 200 years, there's another chance to reconcile Earth, and this time around three people hold the key: Gentle, an artist and womanizer who cannot remember his past, Judith, who is the obsession of many but the permanent possession of none, and Pie 'oh' pah, a shape-shifting assassin of indeterminate sex. This is truly epic fantasy of the grandest sort; Barker has created an utterly believeable, entrancing world as the setting for a remarkable story.
