Where will Galen Toews wake up next?

When Galen Toews collapses in the subway station, she immediately draws a crowd. As she lies on the platform, semi-conscious, faint murmurings of concern mingle with half-remembered voices from earlier spells. Before too long, Galen regains full consciousness and shuffles slowly out of station. A man follows her, urging her to sit down and rest. But Galen wanders away, following breadcrumbs of memory back to a time when the spells were just beginning--and there was still hope that someone, somewhere, might be able to explain what's happening to her.

In Spells, Graeme Shorten Adams guides readers on a surreal journey through memory, consciousness, and medical mystery.
