So far Alex Verus has been helping others and trying to avoid entanglements with either dark or white mages, but now it is personal. He is the chosen target of a posse seeking revenge for things from his past. Only by using all his skills and through his friend’s efforts he survives but he has not only to face his past as the apprentice of a dark mage but also to tell his friends about it – thereby alienating them.
It is very interesting that in contrast to the magic world of Jim Butcher’s Dresden-novels where the hero has to act like the lone sheriff in a western film, the setting in the Verus-series is much more British. There is a mostly hidden establishment and woe behold if you cross the line of “one of us”…
With this installment the series has reached a level of quality and originality that is simply excellent! A gripping, emotional tale with a sly humor, superbly performed by Gildart Jackson this audio book is pure joy. I just regret that not all of them are available via audible, but after all there is still print.
