Life is quiet for Alex Verus. Amazing.

With a flat full of friends (and the occasional fish), and business booming, why not enjoy the humdrum here and now?

But of course that's too good to be true. In a sudden and cruel pincer movement of fate, Alex finds himself fighting a sinister and powerful gang as well as his own demons - for the same crime.

Held hostage by the choices of his past, Alex's future is now in jeopardy . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Harry Dresden would like Alex Verus tremendously - and be a little nervous around him. I just added Benedict Jacka to my must-read list -- Jim Butcher
Jacka writes a deft thrill-ride of an urban fantasy - a stay-up-all-night read. Alex Verus is a very smart man surviving in a very dangerous world -- Patricia Briggs
London's hidden wizardly community spell-blast each other entertainingly in this urban fantasy romp. Fated is highly enjoyable -- Sun
Filled with tense and compelling writing -- SFX
Whoop-ass excitment from the new master of magical London -- Charles Stross
Jacka puts other urban fantasists to shame . . . A stellar blend of thoughtful philosophy and explosive action * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review) *
With its blend of gritty London streets and magical underworld, Chosen has real cult appeal * DAILY MAIL *
The best instalment yet as Alex the seer collides with his dark past and Benedict Jacka matures as a writer * BOOKBAG *
