Editorial Reviews

Review

Harry Dresden would like Alex Verus tremendously - and be a little nervous around him. I just added Benedict Jacka to my must-read list. FATED is an excellent novel, a gorgeously realized world with a uniquely powerful, vulnerable protagonist. Books this good remind me why I got into the storytelling business in the first place (Jim Butcher )

Filled with tense and compelling writing (SFX )

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 )

Fated is an excellent example of not just great urban fantasy but also of brilliant story-telling. There is a near perfect mix of everything and it has been masterfully crafted with a meticulous eye for those pieces of humanity that make a great protagonist and a fantastic story (FANTASY FACTION )

A novel with a very good plotline, and fascinating characters (BOOKCHICKCITY )
