Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts #1)



The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen, and the living are under attack. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for banishing the wicked dead. But Chess is keeping a dark secret: She owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump, who wants immediate payback in the form of a

dangerous job that involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.

My review:

I think this series will be a hit with me. Being the first book in the higly praised series, I expected it will be good. But I was surprised to find it great. Very imaginative writing, story and characters. I like the world Kane built so far, it is dark but unique and mind blowing. I must say I am team Terrible even though I like Lex too. But Terrible is just, mmm, I dont have words for it. The storyline is very interesting, I like the idea of this dystopian world with Church in the lead but where there is no religion, only facts. I like how Chess works to solve cases, I aolways loved books that have puzzles to solve. It is a bit disturbing to see through the eyes of a drug addict, but that only makes the series more unique and it feels very real to read about her addiction. Chess is a character that went through a lot in her life ( that is an understatement) but is still standing and is still fighting to survive even though her ways are definetly not healthy. I cannot wait to see what happens next with her and Terrible and with her life. Downside sure is an interesting place to read about.
