Michael Perrin wants to live the simple life of an aspiring poet in Los Angeles. However, when he receives a key and a piece of music called “The Infinity Concerto”, Michael’s life becomes anything but simple. Soon he is whisked away to the land of the Sidhe, dangerous elves in a tentative truce with humans. Barren and stark, this world is anything but the pretty pretty land of faerie tales.
Drafted into learning the physical and mental skills of magic, Michael discovers of his role in a much larger history of magic and music in both the Sidhe’s world and ours. Can he survive the pitched battle? Will Michael be the answer to finally uniting the elder races?
A classic YA novel that blends the intricacies of complex SF with the wonder and danger of fantasy, THE INFINITY CONCERTO and its sequel THE SERPENT MAGE were re-written and expanded from its original version to form the series SONGS OF EARTH AND POWER. This E-Reads edition is based on those expanded works.
In THE SERPENT MAGE the sequel to THE INFINITY CONCERTO Michael Perrin, a teenage poet returns to contemporary Los Angeles hoping to lead a normal life.

The “Song of Power” still hangs in the air, strange bodies have been discovered in a nearby hotel, and an ancient creature calls to Michael from the waters of Scotland.
Worlds are falling apart. An apprentice needs training. Could an unfinished symphony save the world and create a lasting peace between humans and the Sidhe?
