Downside Ghost Series
A DEADLY HIGH
Magic-wielding Churchwitch and secret addict Chess Putnam knows better than anyone just how high a price people are willing to pay for a chemical rush. But when someone with money to burn and a penchant for black magic starts tampering with Downside’s drug supply, Chess realizes that the unlucky customers are paying with their souls—and taking the innocent with them, as the magic-infused speed compels them to kill in the most gruesome ways possible.
As if the streets weren’t scary enough, the looming war between the two men in her life explodes, taking even more casualties and putting Chess squarely in the middle. Downside could become a literal ghost town if Chess doesn’t find a way to stop both the war and the dark wave of death-magic, and the only way to do that is to use both her addiction and her power to enter the spell and chase the magic all the way back to its malevolent source. Too bad that doing so will probably kill Chess—if the war doesn’t first destroy the man who’s become her reason for living.
Chasing Magic by Stacia Kane is the culmination of all that is Downside Ghosts. Chess will have to face her greatest adversary yet. A monster that is conceived from the horrors of her past, deep dark secrets that threaten to eradicate Chess. Her bond with Terrible will be tested once again, transcending into Chess' truth. Warring sides will finally meet for a battle that has been brewing from the onset, friendships will be tested, and loss, inevitable. I am truly delighted with this series, the story took so many interesting paths, and new questions were unearthed. I truly hope that this is not the last book in the series, there were so many points I wanted answered and weren't. Is the new church, really Truth, are the old religions dead? The Downside Ghosts series is amazing, it kept my attention from the very first book. Ms. Kane's ability to design such a unique world took this series to a whole new plane.
