More adventures in magical London (and beyond) for Mage Alex Verus, made even more complicated by the occasional appearance of Not-Anne, a djinn and the ever present political machinations of the Light Council.
Diviner mage Alex Verus is in deep trouble: on the run from a death sentence passed by the Light Council on both him and Anne, his only way out is to accept Dark mage Morden’s ‘offer’ to work as his aide, and Richard Drakh’s ‘suggestion’ that ex-apprentice Alex return to work for him.
Arachne’s guidance to search for a dreamstone leads Alex and Anne, Luna and Varim to a deep shadow world, and deeper into the murky politics of the UK’s magic-wielding mage society.
I’ve borrowed the next three novels in Benedict Jacka’s Alex Verus series to read over Christmas and just about managed to finish Hidden before heading off to the Austrian Tyrol for my Winter Walking, Trins trip…. leaving the remaining pair to pack.
Magic – literally – with a focus on life mage, Anne.
