Taken by Benedict Jacka

TAKEN Bpb.indd

Blurb: Welcome to Fountain Reach - Ancient seat of the Aubuchon dynasty - Majestic setting of the White Stone tournament. 
Alex Verus's (not necessarily reliable) reputation attracts all sorts. Most are plain bonkers. Yet there's one invitation he just can't refuse. 
At Fountain Reach, Alex is perfectly placed among the noted and notorious to figure out why apprentices have been vanishing. But the tournament is a minefield of ancient grudges and new threats, and Alex can't afford to miss a trick as his elusive adversary stays one step ahead in this most dangerous of games.

Review: Taken is the third book in the Alex Verses series and wow what an action packed, fast paced installment! It didn't matter that I haven't read the previous books (although I definitely will now!) I could still follow the plot with no issues. The world that has been created by Benedict Jacka is rich and exciting and the characters are interesting and loveable. I was immediately sucked into the storyline, once I'd started reading the book I just couldn't put it down. I'm very excited to see what the author comes up with next - this series looks to be an extremely successful one!
