This is one of those rare series that only seems to get stronger the further you get. If I'm completely honest with myself, I think it might be a function of my previous investment, but it doesn't feel that way.

So, Verus is still sliding, but the hints of a possibly heroic character change is still on the table, even if he hasn't quite picked it up. I don't think it really counts that he's only being heroic for those that he considers his friends, but at least he's doing it even when said friend is being an asshat.

I like Anne. I didn't really like her back in book 3, but she's really grown on me through this book. It helps to actually know her history, I suppose, and the fact this novel is all really about her and Verus makes it super easy.

These books are a delight to read mainly because they go down as smooth as silk, the magic is fascinating, and the characters equally so. Evil is complicated, as is good, but more than anything, these novels devote a lot of space to asking some rather hard questions about human nature. They're not just forgettable entertainment, anymore.

So who's hidden? Our dark side.

Gotta love it.

If they'd just leave him to his cozy bookshop and his quiet life he wouldn't keep getting in the way of their nefarious plans and making friends along the way, even if some of them have issues with him calling them friends. Anne Walker is one of them, she has serious issues with how he dealt with some people trying to kill him and now she's missing. To add to his issues his former master is back and looking for him to rejoin the fold.

Alex is such a character, fairly determined not the get involved but loyal to a fault. ( )

Hidden shakes things up in Alex's world as friends come and go, and old enemies resurface. This book focuses heavily on Anne, who is gradually becoming a more compelling character. I suspect that Mr. Jacka is building up to a romantic relationship between Anne and Alex, and at first, I kept saying to myself, "Her?" (Thanks, Arrested Development.) But this book officially killed my perception of Anne as bland, and I look forward to seeing her kick more ass in future books. In short, Hidden is yet another entertaining read that leaves me eager to get my hands on Alex's next adventure. ( )

I actually finished this book a few weeks ago - I read it in one or two sittings. This is, in my opinion, the best Alex Verus book so far (although you do need to have read the previous books in order to know what's going on).

A weakness of previous books was - in my opinion - Alex's isolation. Pretty much everyone in his world was against him, and, for the earlier books, the secondary characters (e.g. his apprentices) were much less powerful than he was and featured more as people Alex needed to protect than true comrades. In Hidden much of that appears to be changing. It's no longer quite Alex-against-the-world (which gets old after a while), and I think it's a vast improvement because the greater participation of other characters allows a richer story.

And, of course, we get to see much more of Anne - who is one of my favourite characters - and learn more about why she is the way she is.

I am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series, [b:Veiled|23236738|Veiled (Alex Verus, #6)|Benedict Jacka|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1421862439s/23236738.jpg|42780952]. ( )

I can't seem to get enough of this series! With each book, the characters grow and the magical world expands to new and exciting heights! I thought Elsewhere was a neat concept, but this book introduces us to shadow realms or "little pocket realities" to the real world. Let's just say that Sagash's shadow realm is far from little and there is a lot going on inside.

As always, the writing and magical battles were top notch. I loved it!

Russell Square is one of the odder areas of London. Squeezed between Euston Road to the north and Holborn to the south, it doesn't have enough shops to be commercial and it doesn't have enough houses to be residential. Instead it has a mix of universities and hotels, rich tourists and poor students rubbing shoulders in the busy streets. It's supposed to be “literary,” associations from the old Bloomsbury group, though given that you'd have to be a millionaire to own property there nowadays I doubt you'll find many artists living in the place.
