    Free download Fated AUTHOR Benedict Jacka Benedict Jacka ✓ 4 review DOWNLOAD Fated AUTHOR Benedict Jacka Fated is a fantastic debut novel This is what urban fantasy can accomplish taking fantasy concepts and giving them a new spin in a modern setting Jacka uses the concept of an age old war between Dark and Light Mages and sets it in contemporary London While many will think of Dresden and recommend this to fans of that great series I don't even think it's fair to compare them outside of the fact that they are both male

A disappointing Dresden clone without the wit and sharp writing The main character is fairly colourless and uninspiring with little to endear him and much patronising behaviour to annoy It reads like a young adult novel with some pretty stupid propositions such as the opening line of chapter 11 A lot of people think of captivity as something glamorous are you serious That is just ridiculous Who on earth thinks that captivity is glamorous Why write such patent nonsense Or my next favourite stupid generalisation Lots of people think mad means funny Who are these lots of people Does Mr Jacka know them personally or are they just colourless poorly fleshed out figments of his imaginationThe author also pulls his punches with the scarey and yucky stuff I can t describe it for you because it was too horrible and the likeWhat s the point if you can t write it Ultimately though this guy suffers from the classic newbie error of writing about something rather than revealing it through the eyes of the characters so there s a huge amount of info dump and explainy explainy Someone needs to tell Mr Jack a the cardinal rule of great writing Show don t tell

So I was just falling off the wagon and wetting my whistle with a bit of Urban Fantasy that was recommended to me recently and I can honestly say that I got really drunk Not alcohol alas but on magicI d just been sifting through all the wonders of the Spacing Guild from Dune and the minor predictive powers of the Jedi recently so imagine my surprise when I get to read about a Dresden ish mage in London who can augur himself through all the twisty paths of time to answer important uestions like Who s going to be killing me in the next fifteen seconds and how can I get out of this damn mess or This is a pretty nasty puzzle placed before me If I can walk all the paths and figure out how to solve it without becoming a crispy critter then go meI admit I laughed loud when Mr Jacka gave an explicit literary nod to a certain mage in Chicago It warmed my cockles And it also set the tone for the mind candy treat that I was about to gobble upThe trick with these kinds of books is how to balance powerful magic against natural limitations andor outside mitigations while keeping in the reader enthralled with a good tale and he did it The plot put this poor neutral mage into the leading roll of a ping pong ball between the white mages and the black mages of London all of whom want him because of his powers of Divination and the fact that he was the only Diviner stupid enough to have not headed for the hills when the storm began to riseFun Exciting We ve even got a bit of a love interest beginning to brew and I think I like her problems a lot than Alex s Oh wait this isn t her tale But I m guessing she s going to get a lot screen time with a second book named Cursed GoodieI have no complaints about this novel It s light and fun and there s lots of action and even a bit of snark Sound like UF Wait It s Good Urban Fantasy I ve only read one book so far but it s shaping up to be as good as the best stuff of that little mage in Chicago We ll see I ve got high hopes
