Short Synopsis
In the heart of Camden is 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 investigating a mysterious relic that has just turned up at the British Museum . . .

Full Synopsis
Alex Verus is part of a world hidden in plain sight, running a magic shop in London. And while Alex's own powers aren't as showy as some mages, he does have the advantage of foreseeing the possible future—allowing him to pull off operations that have a million-to-one-chance of success.

But when Alex is approached by multiple factions to crack open a relic from a long-ago mage war, he knows that whatever's inside must be beyond powerful. And thanks to his abilities, Alex can predict that by taking the job, his odds of survival are about to go from slim to none . . .

"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 deftly invents the rules of magic as he goes along, creating an emotionally satisfying story arc and a protagonist who will keep readers coming back." ---Publishers Weekly

"Narrator Gildart Jackson's versatility is perfect for Jacka's novel of urban fantasy---a mix of Harry Potter and The Twilight Saga." ---AudioFile
