A slight change in direction?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chosen: An Alex Verus Novel (Kindle Edition)
One of the things that has hit me about books in the urban fantasy market is that, though the protagonist has a dark past, they really are a deep down nice guy, and so it has been with this series as well. Up to now. However, without wanting to give too much away, the central character takes a somewhat darker route to solve his problems in this book, introducing a thousand shades of grey into the mix.
For me this is a welcome change and marks this series, for want of a better phrase 'growing up'. I only wonder now if Alex can keep my sympathies in future novels now I know, rather than suspect, what he's capable of!
As you can tell though from the 5 star review I loved it, and while I found the earlier books entertaining, this is where the series has come to life for me.
