Fated: An Alex Verus Novel

Fated: An Alex Verus Novel - Benedict Jacka 3.5 Stars (Not quite 4!)

This book started off great, I was excited to keep reading. I liked the characters, I liked the world.

Then all of a sudden I found myself able to easily put it down.

I don't know why, but the story just didn't grip me in the same way. By the middle of the book, I really couldn't give a toss about the character's past or what he was doing. But I started to care a little more towards the end., so I guess it redeemed itself sufficiently to get back up to 3.5 from the 2.5 I was thinking then.

A good read, a decent urban fantasy - but I have read better.

Perhaps if this had been one of my first urban-fantasy reads I wouldn't have been able to stop raving about it. But I've read so much of this genre that I need more, I need something new. And this just didn't stand out enough for me.
