In book five of
Benedict Jacka’s Alex Verus series, Alex must find a way to rescue his friend
Anne Walker, who has been kidnapped by Dark mages.
With his talent for
divining the future, Alex Verus should have foreseen his friends’ reactions to
the revelations about his previous life. Anne Walker no longer trusts him—and
has also cut all ties with the mage community after getting kicked out of the
apprentice program. As a favor to Luna, Alex’s own apprentice and Anne’s best
friend, he checks in on her only to be told to leave her alone.
Then Anne gets
kidnapped. The Council Keepers of the Order of the Star believe Dark mages from
her past may be involved. Working with the Keepers, Alex and Luna discover that
Anne has been taken into the shadow realm of Sagash, her former Dark mage
mentor, and they must find a way to rescue her.
But another shadow from
the past has resurfaced—Alex’s former master may be back in London, and Alex
has no idea what his agenda is. Download and start listening now!
