Alex Verus, Book 2
Synopsis: Since his second sight made him infamous for defeating powerful dark mages, Alex has been keeping his head down. But now he’s discovered the resurgence of a forbidden ritual. Someone is harvesting the life-force of magical creatures—destroying them in the process. And draining humans is next on the agenda. Hired to investigate, Alex realizes that not everyone on the Council wants him delving any deeper. Struggling to distinguish ally from enemy, he finds himself the target of those who would risk their own sanity for power…
Review: 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 his home to ask for help and that Luna brings a friend of hers who will also put her in a very delicate situation. Our heros will thus be once again carried away in a story that goes beyond them and where many people will be involved. To save his friends, Alex will have to put his life at risk several times. And what to ask when, in addition, we see almost all the characters of the first volume? I was delighted, that I can tell you!
The author takes us on a new adventure and it was a pleasure to find our two characters. I really like how Alex does everything he can do to save the ones he loved. On the other hand, it’s true that it was frustrating to see that sometimes Luna did not want to understand that he was trying to tell her things for her own good.
In any case, I spent a good time with this novel and I’m curious to discover what will happen to them later!
