    Life is quiet for Alex Verus. Amazing. With a flat full of friends (and the occasional fish) and business booming, why not enjoy the humdrum here and now? But of course that's too good to be true. In a sudden and cruel pincer movement of fate, Alex finds himself fighting a sinister and powerful gang as well as his own demons - for the same crime. Held hostage by the choices of his past, Alex's future is now in jeopardy....

    Camden, North London. A tangled, mangled junction of train lines, roads and waterways. Where minor celebrities hang out with minor criminals and where tourists and moody teenagers mingle. In the heart of Camden, where rail meets road meets leyline, you might find the Arcana Emporium, run by one Alex Verus. He won't sell you a wand or mix you a potion, but if you know what you're looking for, he might just be able to help.

    Alex Verus has a magic shop in Camden, London, and an uncanny ability to see the future. But suddenly everyone can see Alex's future. Because the Mage's Council of Great Britain just named him a traitor and ordered his death in seven days' time, and there's no way anyone can get out of that. Alex's friends - Luna and the other apprentices he's taken in - are tainted by association. They'll be marked for death, too, when the ruling comes into play, and Alex becomes locked in a race against time to save them.

Alex has agreed to join the Keepers, the magical police force, to protect his friends from his old master, the Dark mage Richard Drakh.

    Willkommen in London! Wenn Sie diese großartige Stadt bereisen, versäumen Sie auf keinen Fall einen Besuch im Emporium Arcana. Hier verkauft der Besitzer Alex Verus keine raffinierten Zaubertricks, sondern echte Magie. Doch bleiben Sie wachsam. Diese Welt ist ebenso wunderbar wie gefährlich. Alex zum Beispiel ist kürzlich ins Visier mächtiger Magier geraten und muss sich alles abverlangen, um die Angelegenheit zu überleben. Also halten Sie sich bedeckt, sehen Sie für die nächsten Wochen von einem Besuch im Britischen Museum ab und vergessen Sie niemals: Einhörner sind nicht nett!
