Book Review: Fated by Benedict Jacka

Fun, light urban fantasy. Similar to The Dresden Files but with slight alterations. The Dresden Files are darker, in my opinion. Alex Verus, the protagonist, runs a magic shop and is a “white” mage with an attitude problem. Everything gets messy when a dame walks into his life and has been cursed. Next, we get to see him show off his powers, get out of one mess at the time, and explain to us this modern world with magic (dark mages who want to kill him) and giant spiders. That is the book in a nutshell.

I enjoyed listening to this book. It is easy to follow. The only thing that kept bothering me was the annoying female characters. Why does there always have to be one dizzy clueless girl with a shrill voice? Is that some wet dream thing? Anyway, this is a bit unusual book for me as I often enough want something to chew, the spider wasn’t enough for me to ponder, but I can’t blame the book for that, it is what it supposed to be. Good plot-driven novel enchanted with magic and snarky protagonist.

Thank you for reading! Have a spidery day!
