The Strange Case of Guaritori Diolco (World Unbalanced Book 1)
by Bill Hiatt
Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy

Coming out of a coma after twenty years, Guaritori–Garth to his friends–discovers that the world he knew no longer exists.

Advanced technology has failed. Magic, which he didn’t know even existed, has become much more powerful. Supernatural groups battle for supremacy, forcing human beings to seek shelter wherever they can find it.
Garth’s only hope for survival lies with a varied group including a shape-shifter, an alchemist, a tarot card reader, a blacksmith with a flaming sword, and others. But a prophecy foretells that he will bring about the downfall of their leader, the mysterious Ms. M.

Even worse, Garth doesn’t know who he really is. When he and Ms. M find out, it looks as if the prophecy is true. The only way for Garth to stay alive is to disprove that prediction. But to do that, he’ll need to fight faerie royalty, vampires, ancient gods–and his own worst impulses.
