DIRTY MAGIC is a great start to a new SERIES by Jaye Wells. It starts off with action from the very first and does not let up until the end. Kate Prospero is the niece to one of the most powerful crime bosses in town, and she cooked dirty magic for him when she was younger. When her mother died because of one of her dirty magic potions she got away from her Uncle Abe, with his blessing, and vowed to never do DIRTY MAGIC or any magic ever again. Now years later she is a patrol cop and there is a new drug on the streets. In the opening chapters Kate comes across someone who has just attacked and killed a woman. She chases him down and tries to capture him alive, before he gets to the tunnels and loses him for good.
She grabs him as he tries to claim over a fence to the tunnels and he starts to viciously attack her. She ends up shooting him in her struggle to stay alive while backup arrives. She is later put on the MEA SPECIAL TASK FORCE who is trying find out who is behind this new and deadly drug called GRAY WOLF. This drug turns the user into a werewolf like creature that is very hard to subdue and or kill. When the person behind the drug GRAY WOLF, kidnaps Kate’s brother Daniel and doses him with the drug to get Kate OFF the case. Kate knows she has to use magic(dirty magic) to save her brother.
DIRTY MAGIC was a rollercoaster of a ride, with great dialogue and fast paced action scenes. Kate Prospero is one kick ass heroine. Dirty Magic was well written with great character development and world building. This book does not disappoint. I give it 5/ 5 stars.
Book 2 will be out AUGUST 12, 2014 and is called CURSED MOON.
