Series: Downside Ghosts #4
Publication Date: March 27 2012
When Chess Putnam is ordered by an infamous crime boss—who also happens to be her drug dealer—to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she knows she must rise to the challenge. Adding to the intensity: Chess’s boyfriend, Terrible, doesn’t trust her, and Lex, the son of a rival crime lord, is trying to reignite the sparks between him and Chess.
Plus there’s the little matter of Chess’s real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth, investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside. Someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead—and if Chess doesn’t watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks.
As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she’s not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice
I love this series! I was so stuck on it for a while. It's more of a mature YA book that is set in the future with a dystopian theme. The heroine is not your typical "good" heroine, but her qualities makes you like her even though she does deal with a drug problem. She's easy to relate to, loveable, and strong. I love the world that Kane has created; the characters are so understandable and I just love Chess, Lex, and Terrible. I can't wait for this book to be released!
I've read that she is contracted for six books. Woot! But I seriously hate waiting for books. I read the first three in quick succession because they were already all out by the time I heard about it. Thank goodness for GR and the people on there because it was there that I came across these books. I might have missed out if not for GR. Eep, how scary.
