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.

I love this series. Book 1 was good, and this one was even better. I love Alex. I love Luna. I love the writing, the setting, and the world. There are flaws, but they are minor. A monkey's paw, a dragon, a giant spider, and a girl who kills with her touch. Awesome.
