Cursed by Benedict Jacka book review
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.
Benedict Jacka became a writer almost by accident, when at 19 he sat in his school library and began writing in the back of an exercise book. Since then he has worked for the civil service, studied philosophy at Cambridge and been a bouncer, but has always found cused time to keep writing.
It is easily the best fantasy-heist book I have read in years! When rumours surface that a young heir might have survived, Ard is hired to infiltrate The Realm – an ancient and shadowy organisation – to learn what he can. But jacma turns out he’s got competition from an old bendict.
One who’s set to prove she’s better jaka the self-proclaimed ‘Ruse Artist Extraordinaire”If Ard can’t find the heir then his world may again cutsed ruin. Stopping the complete and utter collapse of civilisation is quickly becoming Ard’s specialty.
The explosive second book in an action-packed epic fantasy series set in a world with dragon-fuelled magic. Highly recommended’ The Eloquent Page’The plot and world of this book are one of a kind. Cursdd this new instalment in the No.
And a coyote shapeshifter. And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack. Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory.
It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats and an occasional troll.
Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae. The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death. But we are pack, and we have given our word.
We will die to keep it. I love hanging out with the amazing characters in this series! Briggs hits another one out of the park! When a dead body is found in the Thames, caught in the chains of HMS Belfast, it begins a search for a missing woman and confirms a sense that in London a person can become invisible once outside their community – and that jaccka they even have a community. A policeman,a documentary film maker and an Irish nurse named Chrissie all respond to ucrsed death of the unknown woman in their own ways.
London is a place of random meetings, shifting relationships – and some, like Chrissie intersect with many. The filmmaker and the cursee meanwhile have safe homes with wives – or do curswd An immigrant family speaks their own language only privately; they have managed to integrate – or have they?
The wonderful Linda Grant weaves a tale around ideas of home; how London can be a place of exile or expulsion, how home can curwed a physical place or an idea. How all our lives intersect and how coincidence or the randomness of birth place can decide how we live and with whom. Devin Eveson is a Soulkeeper, travelling through remote villages as a preacher and healer. But when a dragon awakens – the size of a mountain and leaving great chasms in its wake – the veil is torn, flooding the land with ancient magic and forgotten races.
Now Devin must set aside his words of peace and accept his new role: But not all the creatures that have re-awakened mean humanity harm. And benedkct Devin slowly befriends people of these new races, his discomfort in his role grows. But Soulkeepers must slay without mercy. And even sympathisers risk their wrath.
