On a snowy night in February, at the improbable point in Lower Manhattan where Waverly Place intersects Waverly Place, a photographer named Leo meets Veronica for the first time. Starkly beautiful, mysterious, aloof, she leads him into a world where illusion blends seamlessly with reality--a luminously transformed city where powerful underground streams crisscross beneath the streets, a city of dragonpoints and Tibetan mysticism where real time is magically altered. Ten years have passed since Veronica''s father, the famous magician Albin White, disappeared while performing a dangerous feat of time travel before a packed theater audience. White''s disappearance was no accident: he was sabotaged by his apprentice Starwood, who interfered at a critical moment and sent him hurtling into the past, free to explore other eras but with no means of returning to the present.
Until Veronica finds Leo...
Annotation:
Leo meets the beautiful Veronica and is drawn into her attempt to rescue her magician father who has been pulled into another dimension.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"From an accomplished poet and second-novelist: a page-turning yarn about magic and time-travel set in modern Manhattan...offers little poetry but lots of lean, action-packed prose...High-class, Victorian-style fantasy of the fourth dimension..." 11/01/1995

New York Times Book Review
"Mr. Christopher is a superbly lyrical and descriptive writer...'Veronica' is a hip, sexy, trendy fantasy novel." - David Guy 02/11/1996

New Yorker
"Satisfying as the storytelling is,...the deeper pleasures here stem from the author's imaginative and idiosyncratic scholarship, by means of which the uncanny is made to seem commonplace and the commonplace unfathomable." 02/05/1996

Booklist
"A fresh and innovative novel for our times...a nonstop, exciting page-turner, and more."

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Christopher is wonderful at contrasting Leo's growing bewilderment with the lush, dangerously sensual nature of Veronica's world." - Erika Taylor 03/03/1996
