London's hidden wizardly community spell-blast each other entertainingly in this urban fantasy romp. Fated is highly enjoyable

Jacka writes a deft thrill-ride of an urban fantasy - a stay-up-all-night read. Alex Verus is a very smart man surviving in a very dangerous world
Patricia Briggs
Filled with tense and compelling writing
SFX
Whoop-ass excitment from the new master of magical London
Charles Stross
Harry Dresden would like Alex Verus tremendously - and be a little nervous around him. I just added Benedict Jacka to my must-read list
