Veiled By Benedict Jacka
by Terrance Mc Arthur
In Benedict Jacka’s Veiled, Alex Verus is a diviner, a mage who sees the alternate paths of the future, how his decisions will affect his life…or death. He has no real weapons but his wits, so some readers call him a coward. He doesn’t want to kill, but there are often a lot of dead bodies when the smoke clears. He doesn’t want to tap in to Dark magic, so he has to think his way around his opponents, who usually have one simple goal – killing Alex Verus. He maneuvers his opponents into a position which puts them in the path of something magical and nasty. It may not be kind, but it keeps Alex alive.
