Cursed Moon

By Jaye Wells (Trade Paperback, 2014)
MAGIC IS A DRUG. IT'LL COST MORE THAN YOU CAN PAY. . .

When a rare Blue Moon upsets the magical balance in the city, Detective Kate Prospero and her Magic Enforcement colleagues pitch in to help Babylon PD keep the peace. Between potions going haywire and emotions running high, every cop in the city is on edge. But the moon's impact is especially strong for Kate, who's wrestling with guilt over her use of illegal magic.

When a rogue wizard steals dangerous potions from a local coven, Kate's team must find the thief's hideout before the vengeful coven catches him. But the investigation uncovers the rogue's dangerous plot to unleash chaotic magic on the city. Once the Blue Moon rises no-one's secrets will be safe. Not even Kate's.

Raised in Texas, USA Today bestseller Jaye Wells grew up reading everything she could get her hands on. Her penchant for daydreaming was often noted by frustrated teachers. She embarked on a series of random career paths, including stints working for a motivational speaker and at an art museum. Jaye eventually realized that while she loved writing, she found facts boring. So, she left all that behind to indulge her overactive imagination and make stuff up for a living. Besides writing, she enjoys travel, art, history, and researching weird and arcane subjects. She lives in Texas with her saintly husband and devilish son.

  • "A fresh, magical world full of potion junkies and alchemists that promises to break new ground in paranormal thrillers." (Laurell K. Hamilton).

  • "Jaye Wells raises the urban fantasy bar with Dirty Magic, a hard-boiled series debut as unique and surprising as the creatures and characters peopling it. Kate Prospero is charged with policing the Cauldron, a magical world so fully realized, and so gritty, it gets under your nails. Wells is known for deftly weaving non-stop action with no-holds barred humor, but the unique and deeply drawn relationships are the real alchemy here. Dirty Magic showcases seasoned pro, Wells, at the top of her game, and establishes newcomer Kate Prospero as the urban fantasy heroine to beat." ( New York Times bestselling author Vicki Pettersson on Dirty Magic.  ).

  • "Kate Prospero is my new favorite heroine -- imperfect, haunted, driven, and dangerous."  ( New York Times bestselling author Kevin Hearne on Dirty Magic ).

  • "Hold on tight -- a gritty new heroine has joined the pantheon of shoot-first, ask-questions-later protagonists." (RT Book Reviews on Red-Headed Stepchild).

  • "A fast-paced fun book" (New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris on Red-Headed Stepchild).

  • "Last year, I wrote that Jaye Wells had the potential to be the next coming of Laurell K. Hamilton and Kim Harrison.  This year, I'll amend that slightly: Jaye Wells is the next coming of LKH and Kim Harrison." (www.bn.com on Green-Eyed Demon).
