Publisher's Summary

Right now I wasn't seeing Richard as the teacher out of my nightmares; he was just another Dark mage, and I looked into the future to see what would happen if I turned that knife on him instead....

Alex Verus is still haunted by his time apprenticed to Richard Drakh. He's been free of him for many years, but now the only way to keep his friends from being harmed is to again work for Richard and his deadly ally. Even worse, he's forced to bring the Light mage Anne into this servitude as well. After weeks of being hunted and finally cornered into what he thought was his last stand, Alex never thought his life would be spared - and never anticipated at what price. This time, the diviner can see no way out.

    "Oh my God!!!!!!!"

    Just when you thought you might be okay Alex, you find yourself saying oh shit. Really liked this book because once again everything is just falling apart and war is just around the corner what can one person do.

    "Fantastic...But..."

    First... I LOVED this book. Great story and never got boring at all. I had to subtract one star from the performance however as Morden's voice suddenly changed in this book. He now sounds like Griff from the first book. Gone was his snake-like voice that made my skin crawl and it took half the book for me to get used to it. Wonder why they did that? Other than that, fantastic.

    Story
    "Tighter Coils and Straighter Straits"

    This was one of the better of the recent books with all of the machinations and evil and racing from danger to more impossible danger we have come to expect from this series. I love the mental elements of his stories. Verus takes you along on his brain bending desperate schemes to just stay alive and keep his little family of friends both alive and sane, while behind it all his 'Moriarty', Richard Drakh chillingly moves his agenda forward, implacable as a glacier and seemly as unstoppable as he is inscrutable.

    This set of moves on the chess board makes one feel like we can almost see the end game but not quite-and the end also leaves us as usual desperately wanting know what happens next.

    One of the things I love best about his character Alex Verus is that he is not the most powerful player on the field, in fact in is a bit under-powered for the game; hampered by morals and ties of affection and compassion. He knows he is being maneuvered and even his divination can't see the long game. In the world of mages and magic he is an Everyman doing his best in an impossible situation.
