Description

National bestselling author Benedict Jacka returns to the world of Alex Verus... I thought I'd escaped my past. But my old master is back and making a new play for power. And he's not the only one targeting me... Diviner Alex Verus and the Council that governs the magical community have never gotten along. But with his former teacher back in Britain, Alex is in desperate need of allies, and he'll do whatever it takes to get them--even if it means accepting a job with the Keepers, enforcing magical law. Alex forms an uneasy alliance with his new partner, Caldera, but his attempt at legitimacy quickly turns lethal when a mission puts him in possession of an item that factions both inside and outside of the Council would kill to get their hands on. Once again caught in the middle of a deadly conflict, Alex will need all his abilities to figure out who his friends are--especially when enemies are hiding on all sides...

Review quote

Praise for the Alex Verus Novels "Harry Dresden would like Alex Verus tremendously--and be a little nervous around him. I just added Benedict Jacka to my must-read list...An excellent novel, a gorgeously realized world with a uniquely powerful, vulnerable protagonist. Books this good remind me why I got into the storytelling business in the first place."--Jim Butcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files "Benedict Jacka writes a deft thrill ride of an urban fantasy--a stay-up-all-night read."--Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson series "Jacka puts other urban fantasists to shame...A stellar blend of thoughtful philosophy and explosive action populated by a stereotype-defying diverse cast."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Tons of fun and lots of excitement in this fast-paced thriller...[Benedict Jacka] writes well, often with the ability to bring places to life as much as his characters, especially the city of London."--SF Site
