People keep buying them, and that means the publishers are happy to keep on putting them out!(less)
Benedict Jacka Yes, but the differences are mostly things like how to spell the word 'colour'.

Hi Luna,

Thanks for answering these for all these years. Couple of quick, personal-but-hopefully-not-too-personal questions.

1). Do you ever see Chalice anymore? Were you ever friends, or more like the high school teacher you get along with but never see outside class? Any other dark mages you get on with?

2). Has… uh, “New Anne” been in touch with you? Or vi

Marked by Benedict Jacka
"I have a major problem with this series.

It doesn't come out fast enough.

Can't really get enough of it. It's easily the most badass a diviner has ever been in just about any lit I can think of, and Jacka does such a nice job of making his magic system" Read more of this review »

“I've heard of a guy in Chicago who advertises in the phone book under "Wizard",though that's probably a urban legend.”
Benedict Jacka, Fated

“I don’t sell spells, and I don’t sell tricks. I don’t carry illusions or marked cards or weighted coins. I cannot sell you an endless purse or help you win the lottery. I can’t make that girl you’ve got your eye on fall in love with you, and I wouldn’t do it even if I could. I don’t have a psychic hotline to your dead relatives, I don’t know if you’re going to be successful in your career, and I don’t know when you’re going to get married. I can’t get you into Hogwarts or any other kind of magic school, and if you even mention those stupid sparkly vampires I will do something unpleasant to you.”
Benedict Jacka, Cursed

“Starbreeze doesn't rest, doesn't sleep and can hear anything carried on moving air. It'd make her the perfect spy, except that most of what she hears goes in one ear and out the other.
"I'm looking for a Precursor relic, a new one"
"What's a relic?" Starbreeze said curiously.
"A powerful magical thing. It would have been found a week or two ago"
"What's a week?”
Benedict Jacka, Fated

Olivia Thanks for accepting my friend request. I just finished reading Taken and I thought it was the best in the series so far. I'm eagerly anticipating Chosen.


Jonathan Merry Christmas and thanks for accepting my request. I read Fated & Cursed within the last week or so and i've just started Taken. Absolutely awesome.


Theresa I'm having the best time with Alex. I agree with Jim Butcher, Alex and Dresden would be great friends. Wouldn't it be fun if they had the chance to work together.
