Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Jacka puts other urban fantasists to shame with the fourth Alex Verus novel (after Taken), a stellar blend of thoughtful philosophy and explosive action populated by a stereotype-defying diverse cast. Verus, who can see myriad possible futures, has carved out a niche for himself in an alternate London divided between equally self-serving Dark and Light magicians. Having taken in three troubled students—forthright curse-wielder Luna, quiet life mage Anne, and sullen fire mage Variam—he's not quite sure how to help them find their feet. Then Verus is attacked by Will Traviss, whose sister Verus abducted back when he was a naïve Dark apprentice. Besieged by Will's gang of adepts, Verus reluctantly enlists hard-hitting allies, wanting to protect himself and his wards while sympathizing with the vulnerable young idealists who commit violence in the name of righteousness. The protracted final battle is both dramatically destructive and emotionally brutal, with Jacka never letting any character get away with easy answers to the hard questions of life in a perpetual magical war zone. (Sept.) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Each book in this engrossing series outshines the one preceding it...Urban fantasy readers who have not yet made Alex's acquaintance are advised to do so immediately."

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Benedict Jacka became a writer almost by accident, when at nineteen he sat in his school library and started a story in the back of an exercise book. Since then he's studied philosophy at Cambridge, lived in China, and worked as everything from civil servant to bouncer to teacher before returning to London to take up law.
