CHOSEN’S plot read like a thriller with Alex running from and sometimes into danger which made for a quick paced story with something new always popping up to keep me wondering how Alex is going to get out of this dilemma. A lot of CHOSEN is dedicated to flashbacks to Alex’s time as a Dark mage’s apprentice.

TAKEN is the third book in the Alex Verus series which is fast becoming a ‘must read’ for me. All of the books are evenly paced with action, witty dialogue, and they never spend too long on info dumps which tend to drag plots to a screeching halt.
CURSED is a wonderfully fun, action packed story with witty dialogue making it another great installment for the Alex Verus series. The plot was a little more straightforward than in FATED and it had a few fun twists that I didn’t see coming.
FATED brings another contender for the top of my favorite male urban fantasy hero list. Reading this book I got a very Dresden Files vibe which I loved as I gladly welcome more grizzled hardcore mages/wizards in my urban fantasy.
