Reading, writing, and raising the dead
 
When Chess Putnam is ordered by an infamous crime boss—who also happens to be her drug dealer—to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she knows she must rise to the challenge. Adding to the intensity, her boyfriend, Terrible, doesn’t trust her, and Lex, the son of a rival crime lord, is trying to reignite the old sparks between them.

Plus, there’s the little matter of Chess’ real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth. She’s investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside, where someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead—and if Chess doesn’t watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks. 

As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she’s not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessi Szigethy | 8/11/2012

    " Great addition to the series. Chess is showing more of herself to us but not to everyone else. That causes some problems. Hopefully Terrible with stick with her. The mystery was just as good. The hidden connections and red herrings were well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs.Norman | 7/22/2012

    " Awesome....review to come "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 6/10/2012

    " I have a love/hate relationship with this series. I love how things ended with Terrible and Chess, but the plot is just recycled. The writing and characters are so intriguing that I have kept reading, but I think I'm stopping at book three. Or take a break at least... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci Douglass | 6/6/2012

    " Okay, I'm officially addicted to this series. I admit that I had a hard time getting into it at first, but once I gave myself over to the world that Stacia has crafted, I was hooked! Great characters, great world-building and interesting story = magic! Can't wait for the next book! :D "
