"Tom Taylor's life was screwed from the word go. His father created the mega-popular Tommy Taylor boy-wizard fantasy novels. But dad modeled the fictional epic so closely to Tom that fans constantly compare him to his counterpart, turning him into a lame, Z-level celebrity. When a scandal hints that Tom might really be the boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a mysterious, deadly group that's secretly kept tabs on him all his life. Now, to protect his life and discover the truth behind his origins, Tom will travel the world, to all the places in world history where fictions have shaped reality" -- from publisher's web site.

I have read 1-5 so far. It starts off looking like a Harry Potter knock-off but quickly develops philosophical depths & layers of intrigue. I'm not giving 5 stars because there are points where the story slows down a little but then there's a new twist in plot & layer of philosophical implication & it takes off again. Definitely worth reading. How much power do stories have?

Really intriguing premise that examines the blur between fiction and reality that fandoms create. It's great fun for literary geeks-- an entire section is about the rise and fall of Rudyard Kipling and it works well with the mythology of the story.

"The world is a ridiculous place," the unicorn said. "Hard to measure. Hard to hold. Here is there, and there is everywhere."
