Description
Alex Verus is part of a world hidden in plain sight, running a magic shop in London. And while Alex's own powers aren't as showy as some mages, he does have the advantage of foreseeing the possible future-allowing him to pull off operations that have a million-to-one-chance of success. But when Alex is approached by multiple factions to crack open a relic from a long-ago mage war, he knows that whatever's inside must be beyond powerful. And thanks to his abilities, Alex can predict that by taking the job, his odds of survival are about to go from slim to none . . .

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Gildart Jackson's versatility is perfect for Jacka's novel of urban fantasy--a mix of Harry Potter and The Twilight Saga. Protagonist Alex Verus is a member of the unseen world of London's mages--those who have magical powers. He can see the future but is not as powerful as other mages, who can do things like throw fire or fly. Alex and his apprentice mage get caught up in the search for a relic and soon finds themselves in a desperate struggle for survival. Jackson presents the numerous characters with distinctive voices that are credible, expressive, and suitably animated. The narrative sections are performed with equal skill.

        Starred review from January 9, 2012
        Jacka’s extremely promising urban fantasy series starter introduces cheeky British diviner Alex Verus, who’s caught in the middle of a conflict between Light and Dark mages over an ancient magical weapon. Alex can not only see all possible futures but can often choose which ones to make real, so both sides want to use him as a tool. Alex, alienated from other mages because he has developed empathy for the beings around him, refuses to take sides. To save himself and his dependents—Luna, a lonely, cursed young woman, and Starbreeze, an ancient air elemental who’s “dumb as a sack of rocks”—he’s forced to think and move nimbly through London and its associated magical realms. Jacka deftly invents the rules of magic as he goes along, creating an emotionally satisfying story arc and a protagonist who will keep readers coming back.
