Burned – Alex Verus#7
By Benedict Jacka
The only problem with the Alex Verus novels is I read them too fast! The saga continues, that blurry grey line between good and bad, where Light appears as evil as Dark.
Could you choose a side?
Alex Verus has a magic shop in Camden, London, and an uncanny ability to see the future.
But suddenly everyone can see Alex’s future. Because the Mage’s Council of Great Britain just named him a traitor and ordered his death in seven days’ time, and there’s no way anyone can get out of that.
Alex’s friends – Luna and the other apprentices he’s taken in – are tainted by association. They’ll be marked for death too when the ruling comes into play, and Alex becomes locked in a race against time to save them.
But with only seven days to work with, will he have time left over save his own skin?
