Action-packed police procedural meets dark urban fantasy in a world where cops and wizards are fighting a war over addictive, dangerous, and illegal dirty magic. Magic is a drug. Careful how you use it. The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of the Magic Enforcement Agency, who want to know why she killed their lead snitch. The MEA keeps dirty magic off the streets, but there's a new blend out there that's as deadly as it is elusive. The more Prospero learns about the investigation, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case. Especially once the investigation reveals their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier-on the same day she swore she'd given up dirty magic for good. Kate Prospero's about to learn the hard way that crossing a wizard will always get you burned, and that when it comes to magic, you should never say never. The first book the Prospero's War series from bestselling author Jaye Wells.show more

Our customer reviews

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.show more
