Cursed Summary

Cursed: An Alex Verus Novel from the New Master of Magical London by Benedict Jacka

Things are going well for Alex Verus. He's on moderately good terms with the Council, his apprentice is settling in and his shop in Camden is gaining quite a reputation.

But when a mysterious woman bursts into the Arcana Emporium one night with an assassin on her tail, Alex is thrown into a plot to revive a long-forbidden ritual. His old enemies are after the secret, as well as a Council mage named Belthas and a mercenary named Garrick, and at least one of them is trying to get Alex killed - if he only knew which.

He can see the future, but knowing who to trust is something else.

Cursed Reviews

Harry Dresden would like Alex Verus tremendously - and be a little nervous around him. I just added Benedict Jacka to my must-read list -- Jim Butcher
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
London's hidden wizardly community spell-blast each other entertainingly in this urban fantasy romp. Fated is highly enjoyable -- Sun
Filled with tense and compelling writing -- SFX
Whoop-ass excitment from the new master of magical London -- Charles Stross
Fast-moving and energetic * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
One of the most invigorating and engrossing fantasy novels of the decade * SCIFI NOW *

About Benedict Jacka
