Once upon a time, in a lost heroic age, magic was real, but it has been thousands of years since there was enough magic in the world to matter. In the bleak times, magic required great sacrifice. The kind that sheds blood, human blood. Even then it was just a spark compared to the magic of olden times. In Fantastic America, Midwestern Magicians, and the rest of the Magic Unleashed series, magic floods the Earth in waves of weird changes. Mythical creatures and events spring up around the world. There is an effort to hold back the tide, but each wave is higher and stronger than the last. Can anything in our modern arsenal, any part of the scientific method, any group of ordinary humans stand up against the relentless surge of magic, monsters and miracles?
