For Mage Alex Verus, everything is on the line in the tenth urban fantasy novel from the bestselling author of Marked.
Mage Alex Verus has come a long way, from a diviner trying to quietly live under the radar to a member of the Light Council who has found friends . . . and love. He's become more open, less ruthless. But having people you care about can be dangerous. They can be used against you. Fear for them can make you vulnerable. Weak.
To keep those he cares for safe, Verus may have to become someone else. Someone more dangerous. Someone more powerful. Someone more like his former master, Richard Drakh.
