At the British Museum in London there is a statue that holds a secret. Mortals don’t know anything about it but Alex Verus isn’t a mortal. He is a mage; a diviner. Alex does have the key to the statue and several dark mage’s want it. He has the power to see some of the future and has a magic cloak that makes him invisible. Alex’s friends Luna and Starbreeze have powers also. But the bad guys take control and Alex has to figure out what his future will be.
