Praise for Fated

“An excellent novel, a gorgeously realized world with a uniquely powerful, vulnerable protagonist.”—Jim Butcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Benedict Jacka writes a deft, thrill ride of an urban fantasy.”—Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author


Welcome to Fountain Reach
Ancient seat of the Aubuchon dynasty
Majestic setting of the White Stone tournament

Alex Verus's (not necessarily reliable) reputation attracts all sorts. Most are plain bonkers. Yet there's one invitation he just can't refuse.

At Fountain Reach, Alex is perfectly placed among the noted and notorious to figure out why apprentices have been vanishing. But the tournament is a minefield of ancient grudges and new threats, and Alex can't afford to miss a trick as his elusive adversary stays one step ahead in this most dangerous of games.

Auch der dritte Band der Alex-Verus-Reihe ist gleichbleibend spannend und gut zu lesen. Verus ist ein Magier, dessen Fähigkeit darin besteht, in die Zukunft sehen zu können. Daraus ergeben sich eine Reihe von interessanten Möglichkeiten. Daneben taucht noch eine Reihe von guten und bösen magischen Personen auf, Was mir gefallen hat, ist die Glaubwürdigkeit der Charaktere. Die Bücher sind nicht lustig, sondern eher düster. Insgesamt enthalten sie weniger Humor als die Dresden-Bücher von Butcher, sind aber in der Qualität vergleichbar.

HASH(0x93343518) von 5 Sternen Another excellent action packed addition to an exciting series 1. September 2012
Von Kristina - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Review Courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

TAKEN is the third book in the Alex Verus series which is fast becoming a `must read' for me. All of the books are evenly paced with action, witty dialogue, and they never spend too long on info dumps which tend to drag plots to a screeching halt. Each book expands the universe a little bit giving more insights into Alex's past and how the mage community works.

Alex's power of seeing into the future tends to give him an unfair advantage in battle so it's always scary when he encounters some barrier that makes blocks his ability. Luckily Alex is resourceful and crafty enough to make do without his power for awhile.

Alex Verus definitely reminds me of Harry Dresden in The Dresden Files being a mage working on the outside of the official magic community with a motley crew of friends helping him out of dangerous situations. One my favorite of his friend is Arachne (a giant seamstress spider) who acts as sort of mentor/mother figure for Alex and Luna. Luna, Alex's apprentice, is one of the more interesting and complex of his friends. I was curious about what Jacka was going to do with Luna's power to curse people since it seemed so unwieldy and dangerous in FATED that I had no clue about just how she could control it without killing everyone around her. In TAKEN we get to see Luna take charge of her powers in some very creative ways.

I am really enjoying the Alex Verus series with its solid writing, ever expanding universe, and its uniquely powerful hero. Unfortunately, with no diviner powers of my own, I have to patiently wait for information on the next book which, given its predecessors, will be an excellent read.

HASH(0x9334356c) von 5 Sternen Mr Jacka has created and with each book it gets richer 30. August 2012
Von Under The Covers Book Blog - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

After unexpectedly surviving and defeating some powerful mages Alex Verus has begun to develop a reputation again in the mage community for getting problems solved. When he is approached and asked to investigate apprentices going missing, literally vanishing into thin air and are untraceable by means both magical and mundane, what he finds are a mysterious house, a dangerous rakashasa and two apprentices who seem to be in the middle of it all.

I am really getting into this series, the previous two books have been great and this one follows suit. It is action packed and full of excitement and has a plot in it that is interesting and complex enough to keep you guessing. But what I like best about this book and series is Alex, the main character, he is a great vehicle to tell the story through, he is constantly underestimated as he has less power then most other mages, making the books more exciting as it doesn't always seem like he will prevail.

There doesn't seem to be any over arching plot on these books, but these books do seem like they are giving you a taste of the world Mr Jacka has created and with each book it gets richer, although it may not be the most original setting, it is well done and the writing is good enough for it not to really matter.

I know we mainly review romance here, and this book doesn't actually have any, although I am hoping some will develop in the future, but don't let that scare you off, it is worth trying, and what it doesn't have in romance it makes up with in other things. It was another entertaining book in the series, it kept me glued to the page trying to figure out how Alex would win this time and I can't wait for the next book.

HASH(0x922993b4) von 5 Sternen another good installment 2. September 2012
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I agree with the other reviews I've read, good but nothing really new or revealing. I am beginning to enjoy this series more and more than when I first began though. I stumbled across fated the first in the series on my recommended list decided to give it a shot and was interested but not impressed. The second book cursed was better I thought in this just continues in the same vein. Better than Simon green 's nightside or Richard kadrey 's sandman slim books but not quite as good as butcher's Dresden books or Kevin Hearne's iron druid series. If you've read any of those and note my comparisons or tastes that should give you a pretty good idea what you're getting here. I look forward to the next installment in this series.

HASH(0x9229939c) von 5 Sternen A Must Read Series 11. September 2012
Von N. Gargano - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have to say, this series by Mr. Jacka is starting to fall in the favorite series category. The first book was suggested to me by Amazon because of the other books I read of course, and I am so glad it showed up in the recommendations.
The world building has increased with each book, and I like the fact that he is unfolding it slowly. I feel like there is way more to the abilities of the main character than even he knows, and I keep thinking the author is hiding something really big from us. Maybe not, but either way, it is a fun ride.
This particular book can be read even if you have not read the others, I felt like the author explained the character's world really well for new readers, but I am a little bit of a stickler when it comes to reading series, I like to start from the beginning. Most of the time, I feel like the history of the characters and the setting makes the book more enjoyable. So either way, I think this time, but the other books are great too, worth going back and starting from the beginning.
I have really gotten to love the main character, and I can't wait to see where Mr. Jacka takes this. Again, there is great world building, great supporting characters, some good, some not so good and some I am still waiting to see....

HASH(0x92299768) von 5 Sternen Taken by Benedict Jacka 1. September 2012
Von Bob - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Taken, the third novel of the Alec Verus series will not disappoint. Alex is a diviner mage, able to see the future and how he interacts with it. Recruited to solve the mystery of the missing apprentices.
Alex slowly pieces together the puzzle, saves an apprentice or two, exposes the bad guys, and generally saves the day! Another triumph for the author Benedict Jacka and a great addition to the world of Urban Fantasy.
