Thought it would be boring
It took me a long time to pick up the first book in this series and read it. The premise always seemed boring to me, but it is not. Jacka has created a really fun urban fantasy series. The series follows a diviner and his apprentice through various adventures. The protagonist is a moderate talent of one very specialized skill, and his intelligence keeps him alive. This is a book in which the reader is not just told the protagonist is intelligence and expected to accept it as a truly predictable story unfolds. The protagonist does demonstrate intelligence through his creativity. Give this series a try. You will enjoy it.
Another Excellent Alex Verus Novel
