Read-along & Giveaway: Fallen by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks  @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY

We have come to the last published book, Fallen, and the end of the Read-along. I can’t express enough how glad I am to have chosen this Alex Verus series.  I managed, even with a schedule, to get them all at the library and they were available in ebook and audio.  I feel grateful that […]

Gah.  It never gets any easier. Alex is busy trying to stay alive and do his “job” on the Council as a junior member. He is working to retrieve artifacts which were stolen from the Vault.  He also makes an effort to keep as many alive as he can on either side. But he is […]

Alex has learned how to make some great friends, but he is much better at making enemies.  And he has made some doozies. Richard and Mordan are at top of that list (a very long list at that) and they are by far the most dangerous.  They are educated, cunning, patient, mysterious and are playing […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Burned by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY

    I feel like every great series has that book where the s**t hits the fan and it feels like nothing can go right for the hero.  Burned is that book in the Alex Verus series.  In sum, Alex gets his burn notice from the Council of Mages in an emergency session led by […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Hidden by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY #JIAM

  Hidden is the fifth book in the Alex Verus Series.  So far this series has been getting better and better with each installment and while I did enjoy Hidden quite a bit it wasn’t my favorite book of the series so far, Chosen still holds that space but it is another really good story […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Chosen by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY @CarolesLife

  Chosen was another great installment in the Alex Verus Series.  This is a series that really does need to be read in order since each book builds on the previous installments.  I think I am liking each book in the series a little more as I work my way through the series and I […]

    The Alex Verus Series is really heating up and each book seems to be getting better.  In Taken, book three, Alex and his trusty apprentice, Luna, set out to solve the mystery of missing apprentices, a delicate task full of political pitfalls and powerful magic.  The actual ‘who dunnit’ was a little obvious […]

      This is a new novel featuring Alex Verus and his friend Luna, and I admit that I was curious to discover their new adventure! Alex has returned to the normal course of his life, or at least that’s what he thought until that someone tries to kill him, a woman comes to […]
