This is something that when Mike mentioned it during it's inception on a couple forums that created a swarm of speculation...

It can't possibly be real! You are making it up! Where's a video you liar boy!

Hark! There is a manuscript!

I received this in my inbox perhaps a week ago and had a nice read through the ebook...

I will say this, it is a devilishly clever effect, very bold, very back to basics in method, but awfully clever.

The effect is this; You will approach someone, you begin performing and do a couple of lovely card tricks - Perhaps one of these ambitious card effects all you kids are doing these days!

Then you break it down, you offer something a bit more intimate... Asking someone in the back of the crowd to whom you are performing to name any card that pops into their mind... Y

ou spread through the deck face up to find said card and ask one of your other spectator's their name, perhaps the young lady that reacted so well to the voodoo ash effect you performed mid routine...

"What is your name, my sweet?" You will ask in gentle, charming tone (have I gone OTT yet?:P)

In her letting everyone in on her first name you flip the card in your hand revealing her name written on the back, in fact, the card could be flipped just as she opens her mouth - No sound need escape!

The deck is spread revealing different names on all the backs of the other cards, the deck could be examined if necessary...

Ok, So the method... It's very, very simple, you won't be able to perform this to everyone in the world as cleanly as described, but you will be able to find a way using the concept to perform to anyone with a bit of work - Perhaps I'll put a supplement to Mike's book to make this possible.

He does include EVERYTHING you need to know to make the Destiny deck and go out and perform it the very same day. Very concise instruction, very workable method and a super hard hitting effect.

I, myself was truly intrigued by this when the threads first started popping up and I can honestly say that this effect is as good and as clean as it sounds.

There's lots of room for creativity, you could put any words on the backs, numbers, anything is possible with the concept.

This is a great little ebook... We'll see if it ever gets released to the mainstream, if so, it's worth the spending of a few pence to buy these works for sure!

I must note actually, that there's no secret writing, it's just the pre-prepared cards and you are set.

So, I rate it an easy 9/10 for the sheer workability and impossibility of the effect. Great work Micheal, I look forward to seeing more...

So if this isn't released to the mainstream then why are you mentioning something I cant buy. your 9/10 score is meaningless to me if I cant purchase it.

I may soon become available... people have expressed great interest in it and I'm currently negotiating things to get a humble little release out there.

This effect looks great. You can get it here. http://www.emagicsupply.com/the-destiny-effect-p-38.html

$7.99 is a very reasonable price for this in my opinion.

Nope, no rough and smooth, you can make your own deck with just a Sharpie and an ordinary deck in about 15 minutes.... after that you're set for life!

This isn't quite available yet, the ebook still needs one small revision, but I will let you know when we're up full force!

I've been one of Michael's harshest critics since he first joined us here on the Café. It is a pleasure to finally be able to genuinely say, "Michael, this effect of yours is fantastic!" I purchased the Destiny Effect out of curiosity to see what Michael was up to recently and it does not in any way dissapoint. The manuscript is well written and extremely detailed. The effect itself is devastating in its own right; he has taken some well known principles to a new level to create a powerful, professional, and intimate piece of close up mentalism. If you regularly work for real people, do yourself a favor and pick this up. You can't beat the price for the effect. Kudos indeed.

Thank you for the fantastic review Brian! I'm overjoyed that you like it, and that many others out there like it too. I hope, if you purchase it, you'll find a soft spot for it Smile. I've worked constantly on this effect for over a year, first kind of shifting away from and toward the concept before finally sitting down and working hard on it earlier this year. I'm glad to see my hard work has paid off.

I purchased this and although the concept is very good I wasnt very satisfied with the method. I like the idea of the persons name appearing on the back of the card. that can be powerful, but I think for me I would stick to something like Phil. but, for $8 you cant go wrong. congratulations mike on a good effect. I know others will find it favorable and they will have something very powerful to add to their routine.

Sounds like an old Marlo effect from Apocalypse to me.

Female, right? It's similar in effect, but not in method. I've done my research Smile.

You're handling the "doubters" very well Michael.

Eventually they'll realize that you've done your homework on this one, and that their efforts to "trip you up" are pointless.

Kids don't stay kids forever, and along with the years comes a sense of responsibility and desire to do the job properly.

Good on ya' Michael.

Im assuming I wont be able to give this card as a souvenier to my spec most of the time then...?

To me, the effect doesn't make sense unless I can give ... mary (for example)... the card I wrote her name on.
