Camden, North London. A tangled, mangled junction of train lines, roads and the canal. Where minor celebrities hang out with minor criminals, where tourists and moody teenagers mingle, and where you can get your ears pierced and your shoulder tattooed while eating sushi washed down with a can of super strength beer. In the heart of Camden, where rail meets road meets leyline, you might find the Arcana Emporium, run by one Alex Verus. He won't sell you a wand or mix you a potion, but if you know what you're looking for, he might just be able to help. That's if he's not too busy avoiding his apprentice, foiling the Dark, outwitting the Light, and investigating a highly toxic Relic that has just turned up at the British Museum.

1.0 Fated (Alex Verus #1) DNF
For the record, Urban Fantasy doesn't really do it for me. But I keep trying it because it "seems" like such a good idea. I read Dresden until book 8 or 9 and just had to admit that I wouldn't like it. I read the first 4 Iron Druid books and while I enjoyed parts, the overallness didn't make me want...

This book just couldn't hold my interest, so I gave up. I more than likely will try this book again.

3.0 Fated (An Alex Verus Novel)
3 Stars The story was one of the weaker parts of the book. When I am reading the first book of a series, I expect the author to take me along somewhat slowly and introduce me to the world and to the characters. At the outset of the book, we are given a minimal introduction to Alex Verus, the centr...

Working on rev...Liked this one a lot. Interesting magic, good characters, good action. Not as kickass as my usual UF reads, but the MC did fine in his own way.
