    I wasn't getting into this as much as I had the earlier 5 novels and I wasn't sure why Then I realized that this is the first I'd gotten in audio For me the reader took some getting used to It's not that he wasn't good but I think I'd already established a voice for Alex in my head and he didn't match It took a little for me to get used to himI've already decided I also probably get the print versionAnyway once I got comfortable this is a g

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 onOnce 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 45 StarsAnother fantastic volume in the Alex Verus series this one picks up the pace from the previous book and rockets along from start to finish Alex s old master Richard Drakh is back and that means trouble for Alex and his friends From the time he first saw Richard return Alex has been preparing for the fight he knows is coming To survive he ll need all the allies he can get which leads him to an unlikely job working with the Keepers the enforcement branch of the Light Council Veiled is right up there with Chosen for my favorite books in the series so far There is great action including a few new types of magic introduced We also get to see a much detailed glimpse into the world of the Council mages that Alex tried to avoid for years and it s fascinating There were a few new characters introduced as well that I m confident we ll see of in the future As has become a trademark over the last few books we see some really interesting character growth as well as great relationship development between the various characters I love the way that Jacka writes the different relationships the way they grow and change feels very organic The only slight letdown for me is one of the secondary characters I ve grown fond of had a pretty minimal role The series is going from strength to strength As of now there are 9 completed books in the series which feels like far too few for my liking

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 meDiviner Alex Verus and the Council that governs the magical community have never gotten along B 45 starsI love Alex Verus After this instalment this series has jumped up to my number 2 UF spot Dresden still takes number 1 sorry Jacka has created a fascinating and complex magical world shades of grey is an understatement While the LightDark mage dichotomy seems simplistic the reality is that much murky with backroom deals threats and treachery on the cards at all times People are motivated by a whole spectrum of reasons the resulting uncertainty about who to trust or how people are going to act gives the series a gritty realism that many UF series lack Most importantly for me both the books and Alex continue to change each new instalment avoiding the trap of rehashing the same previously successful format and expanding the universeplotdepth of characters As a reader it is thrilling to be brought ever deeper into Verus world ever closer to the confrontation with Richard Drakh One final compliment to Benedict Jacka thank you for trusting your readers to know your books and only giving the potential newbies the smallest recaps As a dedicated series reader it s incredibly annoying when every single book covers old ground Repeatedly I m looking at you Ilona Andrews Oh and i m thrilled the blink fox is still around More please

Ut 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 lawAlex forms an uneasy alliance with his new partner Caldera but his attempt at legitimacy uickly turns lethal Another solid edition but it suffers from being less personal on any front I mean Verus as a probationary Keeper a cop of the Light Mages It sounds like the plot needed a bit of stretching to me but okay I ll get over it let s see where this takes usPolitics Of course it has to be politicsFun fight scenes interesting developments in the mage world and a pretty glorious take down mission full of intrigue and double crossings but like I said less of a personal novel There s no new grand reveals or anything when it comes to Verus or his friends If it wasn t for the politics and the sense that some major shit is going to come down in the upcoming novels I d almost say to prospective readers to skip this one but it was still entertaining even if it felt like a military action than an UF novel during the last uarter of the novelTo each their own I still thought it was good
