About this book

John Furia Zacharias, alias "Cortés", experto falsificador cuya vida se ha convertido en una sarta de mentiras; Judith Odell, cuyo poder para dominar a los hombres es mayor de lo que ella misma cree; y Pai`oh`pah, un misterioso asesino procedente de otra dimensión, se ven envueltos en una compleja trama situada en Imajica. Un universo poliédrico y oscuro, regido por leyes más allá de nuestro conocimiento; lejano pero a la vez, a nuestro alcance. Una historia donde el erotismo y la pasión se entrelazan con el terror y la ambición.

Reader's Thoughts


It's been so long since I read this that I've no clear recollection of it. I do remember being perplexed or confused or maybe frustrated by it. I think I read it as a teenager. Time for a re-read.


he is my favorite and this is my favorite of his works, hard though it is to choose.


Favorite QuotesA man kills the thing he loves, and he must die a little himself.His body and his mind went about their different businesses. The former, freed from conscious instruction, breathed, rolled, sweated, and digested. The latter went dreaming.We’re too much ourselves. Afraid of letting go of what we are, in case we are nothing, and holding on so tight, we lose everything else.

This book is extremely imaginative and interesting, and the plot will hold your attention throughout. Some readers might find some of the very strange twists and turns too much to follow, but I have enjoyed it thoroughly and will rush to read the second part.

I'm not going to wax rhapsodic. It was a good read, and this from someone who rarely enteres into the realm of fantasy (in this case, an urban fantasy). What I will say is that, Clive, poppet, you dangle prepositions like fruit from a most laden tree just before harvest!


Sooo looooong...


Fascinating and mesmerizing :)


Awesome book. I loved this one and can't wait to continue in book 2 (which I have actually already started). It's an excellent story. It took me about 90-100 pages to get into into but once I was there was no stopping me. Thanks Dave!

Clive Barker at his finest. This guy's imagination can take you literally anywhere. Exploring the boundaries between worlds, metaphysics, even love are up on his itinerary and he makes it fun to take the journey with him.


(This review is for the whole of Imajica , since it really is a single story.)I liked this book tremendously. It has a very unusual take on the messiah story, and many likable characters. The language is absolutely inspired in places. It does sprawl a lot, which counts against it, but I didn't mind too much.


My most favorite fantasy series, hands down. Love love love Imajica!


a strange and intriguing tale, breaking from a lot of the standard tropes and keeping the reader guessing at what mysteries will come next. at times the line of the plot is a bit disjointed, with surprising turns in events that sometimes seem to derail established directions in the story. overall though, I think the book is excellent, with the rare, slight disturbed feeling of "wait....what?" either supplanted by or adding to the surprising twists and turns that are smoothly written.

Jestli se budoucnost hororu jmenuje C. Barker, jak prý někde řekl S. King, začal bych mít o tu budoucnost obavy.


Sounds daunting.. but... I'm not reading anything else so why not? I wish I could take a highlighter/annotate this.


The first half of a vast and very complicated book, about other dominions and stuff like that. Very inventive and as usual, beautifully written. The length is slightly indigestible though.
