31) Deadly Spells by Jaye Wells

The Blurb :

After the grisly murder of a dirty magic coven leader, Kate Prospero and The Magical Enforcement Agency team up with the local police to find the killer. But as the infighting between covens turns ugly, an all-out war brews in the slums of Babylon.

When a tenacious reporter sticks her nose in both the investigation and Prospero's past in the covens, old ghosts resurface. The team will have to use all the weapons in their arsenal to stop the coven war and find the killer before the case brings down all their careers - and their lives.

My Thoughts :

It has been a long busy week and I didn't get much reading done but this new release was calling to me and I finally found some time this weekend to curl up with it.  Prospero's War is turning out to be an amazing series and I have to say I am starting to enjoy it more than Jaye's previous amazing Sabina Kane series.

Kate is a strong character that you would love to have on your side in any situation,  She is best friend material if you don't mind about her past and her many present problems.  In this third installment Kate is once again thrown into her past as she continues to work with the MEA.  Her knowledge and links to the covens make her an asset to the team but it means she has to face some of her ex-friends and family to get results.

Nothing about this series so far has caused me to hate it and I love the fresh and original concept and very likable characters.  The on-going plot is definitely a reason to go back for more but the cases full of action, horrors and magic are just too good to pass on.  Once again, in this latest addition to the series, there is no kid gloves or training wheels but just pure Paranormal Urban Fantasy goodness with no holding back.  Expect blood, weirdness and swearing but used in the best way possible and not to excess.

This is one of the best new series I have been reading lately and I can't wait for more.  The ideas inside this series are not only different but unusual.  It is refreshing to read something so gritty, interesting and not at all familiar.  Make sure you try this series if you are looking for something new.  There is a lot of goodness in here and Kate Prospero is the leading lady who is trying to keep things good.

Great review Amber, now I do want to read this series. I am not a fan of her Sabina Kane books.
