Review: Unholy Magic by Stacia Kane

ENEMIES DON’T NEED TO BE ALIVE TO BE DEADLY.

For Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. As an agent of the Church of Real Truth, Chess must expose those looking to profit from the world’s unpleasant little poltergeist problem—humans filing false claims of hauntings—all while staving off any undead who really are looking for a kill. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.

Someone’s taking out the hookers of Downside in the most gruesome way, and Chess is sure the rumors that it’s the work of a ghost are way off base. But proving herself right means walking in the path of a maniac, not to mention standing between the two men in her life just as they—along with their ruthless employers—are moving closer to a catastrophic showdown. Someone is dealing in murder, sex, and the supernatural, and once again Chess finds herself right in the crossfire.

Unholy Magic is book 2 of Stacia Kane's Downside Series featuring Churchwitch, Debunker and functional drug addict Chess Putnam. Kane continues to spin a gritty and dank post-apocolyptic world (via physco poltergiests) that keeps readers engaged and entertained.  Each character is exposed layer by layer with Kane's writing -- their strength's and weaknesses alike.  If you loved Chess in Unholy Ghosts, you'll find more things to love in Book 2.

Here's an exerpt from Unholy Magic:
"You ain’t know nothing,” a man scoffed. “How I’m supposed to trust some junkie Churchwitch-”

The words sliced through her like razor-sharp fangs. Her face flooded with shame, so hot she imagined it steamed in the icy air. At least it wasn’t difficult to identify the speaker. All she had to do was look for the man with Terrible’s fist locked around his neck.

“Ain’t think I hear you right,” Terrible said in a calm, quiet voice. “Wanna louden up?” The man shook his head His eyes bulged. He looked like a bug, with his hands clenching into tiny useless fists. “You sure? You got else to say, you best say it now, instead of later. Now we got us watchers. Later might not be true, dig?” The man dug."
:::Clutching my pearls:::: Who wouldn't want a "Terrible" to come to your rescue? 

So if you haven't started this series....what are you waiting for? If you want something fresh and new and totally unexpected -- head to the Downside - this series is definitely worth starting.  

Get your read on!!
