Reviews of Licence To Depart by Alex Sumner

Maria Savva reviewed on Feb. 29, 2012

'Licence to Depart' is the concluding part of the Magus Trilogy. I really enjoyed this series of books. The third book, much like the other two, explores the occult, paganism, magic and mysticism but takes it a step further with the idea that magic can be used to save or destroy the world. It's a very interesting read with many twists and turns. There are lots of eccentric characters and some humour to balance the darker side of the story.
When this instalment begins, Nichola Peterson is out of work and down on her luck. With the Magus in hospital, it is left to Nichola to try to solve the case she had been working on as a police officer before she lost her job. Her life is in danger. But who is out to get her? We follow her through action packed adventures where she learns more about herself and about the secret underworld that the Magus is a part of. There is a lot of erotic content in this third book in the series. I'm not a fan of erotica, personally, so sometimes I did think that it could have been toned down a bit. However, given the subject matter, there was a need for some erotic content.
The ending was very well done, it really brought together all the characters and elements in the story, tying everything up nicely. To conclude this is a very imaginative trilogy that definitely entertains. This would make a good TV series.
