Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts #5)
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.
The last book so far in the Downside ghosts series is the best one yet. The books kept getting better and better but this one is an absolute winner of the lot. The passion, the anger, mistrust and the fighting along with lots of blood and a horde of zombies, this book is an amazing part of the series. I cant express in words exactly how much I love this book, and how much I love Terrible and how much I hope Chess grows more as a person in the next book because I feel she is on the right path. I only hope she leaves her addiction to drugs behind. I didnt particularly liked Lex in this book, I can understand him but I couldnt condone his actions. This book had the hardest puzzle to solve yet and it was the most nerve - wrecking and frustrating so far. I know that the next book that Kane writes will be even better because that is her pattern. I just cannot wait to read it.
