On My Wishlist
On My Wishlist is a weekly meme started by Book Chick City and is now hosted by Workaday Reads. Every week I’ll introduce you to a book that’s on my extensive wishlist. Sometimes it’s a new book, but quite often it’s an older book. Let me know if you’ve read it, and what you think. Please also join in and link up your On My Wishlist post each week.

FatedFated (Alex Verus #1) by Benedict Jacka

Alex Verus is part of a world hidden in plain sight, running a magic shop in London. And while Alex’s own powers aren’t as showy as some mages, he does have the advantage of foreseeing the possible future–allowing him to pull off operations that have a million-to-one-chance of success.

But when Alex is approached by multiple factions to crack open a relic from a long-ago mage war, he knows that whatever’s inside must be beyond powerful. And thanks to his abilities, Alex can predict that by taking the job, his odds of survival are about to go from slim to none…

Let’s take a minute and stare at the pretty cover. I love it. So enchanting and bright and magic looking. I may have even pet my screen. Pretty…

Any way, on to the actual story… It sounds fun. And exciting. And if the story pulls you in, the first three books in the series are available, so there’s no waiting needed.
