Publisher's Summary

Alex Verus faces his dark side in this return to the best-selling urban fantasy series about a London-based mage. 

To protect his friends, Mage Alex Verus has had to change - and embrace his dark side. But the life mage Anne has changed too, and made a bond with a dangerous power. She's going after everyone she's got a grudge against - and it's a long list. 

In the meantime, Alex has to deal with his arch-enemy, Levistus. The Council's death squads are hunting Alex as well as Anne, and the only way for Alex to stop them is to end his long war with Levistus and the Council, by whatever means necessary. It will take everything Alex has to stay a step ahead of the Council and stop Anne from letting the world burn.

Unsatisfactory Ending

Unlike all of the other previous books in the series, the ending was not satisfactory. Most of the other books would allow a person to just stop for a while. Now this time we left in the middle of some craziness, and we probably have to wait a whole Nother year for the next book in the series to come out. I’m a little disappointed.

Fantastic. Just keeps getting better.

I couldn’t stop listening. Excellent narration as usual and the story just keeps getting better and better. I can hardly believe that the series is almost done. If you have read all the previous books, I am sure you don’t need anyone to tell you how good this is. Just get to reading it now. I’m going to listen to it again now.

Great addition to the story buuut....

first off, loved the book. I was really looking forward to the next installment and I was not disappointed. Alex Verus has become one of my favorite characters in modern fantasy. My only gripe is the performance. There's a certain charm to Jackson's narrating style, but it seemed like he forgot the voices in this installment. Especially Richard's. They all sounded very similar to Alex and I had to go back and relisten to parts of the book. aside from that, very good book!
