This review is from: Fated: An Alex Verus Novel (Kindle Edition)I bought this book on recommendation from a Jim Butcher interview. I was not disappointed, the story is good, the characters interesting and everything flows along really nicely. Those who know of Jim Butchers work will see some similarity with the early chapters of this book and the Dresden Files, there is even a rather nice reference to Harry, but things move away from these quite quickly. Those worried about a rehash should not be as I think while this is in the same vein of The Dresden Files, the story and its characters are distinct and well done.
I was a bit confused by the ending (I can't mention any more without giving away plot which I think would be a shame - though for a disclaimer it was more to do with the technical aspects of what the author defines as Magic within the book rather than any plot holes etc), but that was easily forgiven but the enjoyment of the book as a whole. I hope this author continues to improve upon this delightful series.
