Question for those who may remember,

I'm looking for a trilogy but I can't remember the name.

It was set in SciFi world where normal mechanical behavior didn't work. Instead, the people's thoughts became real. If they dreamed of vampires, they became real, etc. But guns, weapons, didn't work. There was a Wizard who could "see" a magma of some sort of Magic that came from the center of the World - not to give away the entire plot - but it was like a river.

Anyway, if you can think of it, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you :)

No problem...its one of my favorite trilogies actually. The whole concept of the Fae and dreams/thoughts becoming reality always fascinated me.

I swear, I must have asked numerous people in B&N the other day if they heard of anything of the sort and they looked at me with blank stares. I miss the days of independent stores with guys/gals that knew their stuff. Oh well.

I have to agree that what made the series interesting was it's mix of sci-fi and fantasy elements. Thoughts becoming real, a very unique concept, I have seen imitated elsewhere only recently. I also remember the image on that cover that you linked - the image of the magic flowing always cemented in my mind.

Kudos Dav.

If I'm not mistaken, the cover art for those books was done by the same guy that did aMoL...and you can definitely see the similarities in his work between the two. I think I mentioned that when the aMoL cover was released actually.
