DEADLY SPELLS is an emotional ride. The characters and story line are well-developed. Each book is better than the last book. Kate and her gang are trying to solve a murder of Charm leader of the Votary Coven. They have to find out who did it and prevent a coven war. We also get a little look into Gardner’s past, when the person responsible for her team in the past was killed. She wants revenge, and will do anything to get it. Kate will learn the truth about her mother’s death, and Danny‘s world has a few bumps in the road. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone. I give DEADLY SPELLS 5/5 STARS.

Jaye Wells delivers another great book in the Prospero War saga, with exceptional world building and character development. She always delivers. Now when we left Kate in th last book, DIRTY MAGIC ,Kate had just helped taking the drug Wild Wolf off the street. She was also a key factor in saving her brother by cooking and using dirty magic. Now it is a while later and it is almost Halloween and the Blue Moon is upsetting everyone’s magic. When someone steals potions from the MYSTICAL COVEN OF THE SACRED ORGASM, SHE has to find them before Aphrodite the head of the O coven does. Secrets will be revealed, friendships are strained, but everything is put to rights by the CURSED MOON. I give this book 5/5 stars, and recommend this series to everyone.

DIRTY MAGIC BY JAYE WELLS -BOOK REVIEW

Book Description Release date: January 21, 2014 | Series: Prospero’s War MAGIC IS A DRUG. CAREFUL HOW YOU USE IT. The Magical Enforcement Agency keeps dirty magic off the streets, but there’s a new blend out there that’s as deadly as it is elusive. When patrol cop Kate Prospero shoots the lead snitch in this crucial case, she’s brought in to explain herself. But the more she learns about the investigation, the more she realizes she must secure a spot on the MEA task force. Especially when she discovers that 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.   BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

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.
