Deadly Spells

By Jaye Wells (Trade Paperback, 2015)
DIRTY MAGIC CAN KILL YOU.

After the grisly murder of a dirty magic coven leader, Kate Prospero and the MEA team must pitch in to help the police find the killer. When the initial evidence points to a rival coven as the culprit, the threat of a coven war looms over the investigation. But the case becomes even more complex when a tenacious reporter insists on sticking her nose in both the investigation and Prospero's own past.

But Prospero isn't the only one whose old ghosts are coming back to haunt them. Newly minted mayor of Babylon, John Volos, as well as Prospero's boss, Special Agent Miranda Gardner may have damning ties to the murderer. The team will have to use all the weapons in their arsenal to stop the coven war and find the killer before the case brings down all their careers.

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.

  • "Jaye Wells has created a fresh, magical world full of potion junkies and alchemists that promises to break new ground in paranormal thrillers." ( Laurell K. Hamilton on Dirty Magic ).

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

  • "Dirty Magic is like nothing else currently happening in urban fantasy. Grim, gritty, and great." (Seanan McGuire).

  • "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 Bestseller Vicki Pettersson ).

  • "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).

  • "The next coming of Laurell K. Hamilton and Kim Harrison." (www.bn.com on The Mage in Black).

  • "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).
