Wishlist Wednesday #7

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves. Hosted by

This week I have picked out the new book in a series that I discovered about a year ago-The Alex Verus series by Benedict Jacka. I read and really enjoyed book #1 which was Fated. I haven't had the chance to catch up on the rest of the series but I'm certainly grabbing this one when it comes out this summer!


Alex Verus is a mage who can see the future, but even he couldn't have seen this day coming. Alex has agreed to join the Keepers, the magical police force, to protect his friends from his old master, the Dark Mage Richard Drakh.

Going legit was always going to be difficult for an outcast like Alex, and there are those in the Keepers who aren't keen to see an ex-Dark mage succeed. Especially when Dark mages are making a play for a seat on the council, for the first time in history.

Alex finally has the law on his side - but trapped between Light and Dark politics, investigating a seedy underworld with ties to the highest of powers, will a badge be enough to save him? 


  1. I've never heard of this series before, but it sounds really good! Thank you for sharing it!

    1. The first book was really good-lots of action and great characters!

  2. Oh that cover is so neat. There's not much to it, but it really catches my eye. Sounds good. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. I love the covers for the series with the maps or city skylines and the swirling colours!
