Benedict Jacka became a writer almost by accident when at nineteen he sat in his school library and started a story in the back of an exercise book. Since then he has studied philosophy at Cambridge, lived in China and worked as everything from civil servant to bouncer to teacher before returning to London to take up law. Benedict has a website at and tweets at @BenedictJacka.

Reviews for Marked (#9 Alex Verus)

Whoop-ass excitment from the new master of magical London -- Charles Stross Filled with tense and compelling writing -- SFX London's hidden wizardly community spell-blast each other entertainingly in this urban fantasy romp . . . highly enjoyable -- Sun Jacka writes a deft thrill-ride of an urban fantasy - a stay-up-all-night read. Alex Verus is a very smart man surviving in a very dangerous world -- Patricia Briggs Harry Dresden would like Alex Verus tremendously - and be a little nervous around him. I just added Benedict Jacka to my must-read list -- Jim Butcher
