When Mage Alex Verus ends up with a position on the Light Council, no one is happy, least of all him. But Alex is starting to realize that if he wants to protect his friends, he'll need to become a power player himself. His first order of business is to track down dangerous magical items unleashed into the world by Dark Mages. But when the Council decides they need his help in negotiating with the perpetrators, Alex will have to use all his cunning and magic to strike a deal--and stop the rising tension between the Council, the Dark Mages, and the adept community from turning into a bloodbath.

The Alex Verus series is consistently one of my favorites. I have been known to get frustrated when the characters in a series never grow or evolve (the Stephanie Plum series springs to mind) but that is not an issue with Alex Verus. Alex grows considerably not only as a mage, but as a human being and the same can be said for the supporting cast of characters.

This installment was immediately engrossing and I read the entire book in the course of one day. I highly recommend this and the other books in the series.
