The Black Conspiracy is the second of a pair of books by Bangor author, Ken Magee. It's a funny, contemporary fantasy which answers the question "What happens when ancient magic meets the Internet".

Ken has always loved fantasy novels, particularly the work of Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin. He says "I was always going to write in the humorous fantasy genre, and twenty years experience of working in the IT industry, was bound to influence the storyline." 

Here's the book's blurb...

Ancient magic has infected the Internet… is this the end for civilisation?
Ancient magic has transported Tung, a young thief, and Madrick, a has-been wizard, across a millennium. Now the magic has infected the Internet and civilisation simply can’t handle the consequences.

To make matters even worse, evil wizards have followed Tung and Madrick through time. They’re determined to hunt down and destroy the pair, and with them, our modern way of life. Saving the world has just got a whole lot harder.

Do you want to laugh while the world comes to an end? The Black Conspiracy is the spellbinding, stand-alone sequel to Dark Tidings.

The Black Conspiracy is available from Amazon and has already had some great reviews:
"This wonderful book takes the story forward from Ken Magee's debut novel Dark Tidings. It's a fantasy but with a difference - ancient magic meets big banking and the internet.

This is a hugely funny book. Ken Magee's sense of humour shines out through the story and leaves the reader with some beautifully memorable phrases. It's not often that I've encountered the Universe as a character. She's a corker, if a little unpredictable after a tipple! Utterly brilliant!" Ignite - Amazon top 500 reviewer.
