A book of revelations. A seamless tapestry of erotic passion, thwarted ambition and mythic horror. Now part of the Voyager Classics collection.
John Furie Zacharias, known as Gentle, a master forger whose life is a series of lies. Judith Odell, a beautiful woman desired by three powerful men, but belonging to none of them. Pie’oh’pah, a mysterious assassin who deals in love as well as death. These three are united in a desperate search for the heart of a universal mystery, and will find the truth that lies in a place as mysterious as the face of God, and as secret as the human soul. They discover the Imajica.
Imajica is many things: an epic novel of vast panoramas and intimate, obsessive passions, embracing ghosts and reflections as well as the human and the divine.

A BOOK OF REVELATIONS. AN EPIC JOURNEY.
The imajica – five dominions, four reconciled. The fifth is Earth, cut off, living ignorant on the edge of a sea of possibilities, mystery and magic. Only a few know of the Imajica, and of the coming day when the Earth will be reunited with the other Dominions. And they are both terrified and in awe of the prospect.
The moment of reconciliation is now approaching. For Gentle, Judith and Pie’oh’pah it is a time of reckoning and revelation. They are driven to travel the path towards the City of the Unbeheld. It is their destiny, whatever horrors or wonders that may hold.
“He is a mapmaker of the mind, charting the farthest reaches of the imagination.”
