I've just started it and in the first Chapter Alex (he calls himself a mage and has a magic store in London) says:

Also on the cover there's a short blurb from Jim:

I guess I'll be reading this series next and Derrick Storm will go back on TBR for a while.

I finished Fated and enjoyed it a whole lot. If you're reading this you most likely like The Dresden Files and if that's true you'll probably like Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus books as well.

Now back to Derrick Storm.

P.S. Changed my mind, gonna' read Two Ghosts for Sister Rachael by Kim Harrison.
