Dirty Magic Review
on 21 January 2014
The first book in the Prospero's war series is an intriguing and fascinating new urban fantasy read.
Patrol cop Kate Prospero finds herself caught in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force when she kills a werewolf covered in blood of his latest victim on her nightly rounds. Earning a spot on the new task force could be the career break she's waiting for, but the investigation leads to the man she walked away from ten years earlier when she swore she would never use dirty magic again.
This steady to fast paced plot keeps the reader entertained throughout with lots of action, suspense and unexpected surprises that keep the reader guessing. The story comes to life with vivid imagery and intense details that make the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader's attention leaving them wanting more.
The author conveys the emotions, personalities and passions of the characters with vibrant descriptions that make them seem real. There is not a lot of romance in the story except for some flirting and suggestions, but the story grips the reader with lots of tension building suspense and an interesting story line and unique elements.
I loved the Sabina Kane series by Jaye Wells, so I was really anticipating this new series and I was not disappointed. She brings a fantastic paranormal world of magic to readers using everyday occurrences doctored to fit her world and found that mixing the real issues with the paranormal added depth and understanding to the story. All the characters were wonderful and Kate promises to be a very exciting and entertaining heroine. I am looking forward to reading more books about Kate and her world of magic.
