Deadly Spells

Deadly Spells

Kickass Magical Enforcement Agent Kate Prospero must balance a dangerous Brazilian cartel, her troubled teenage brother, and a complex chemistry with her partner in this gritty fantasy thriller.

After the grisly murder of a dirty magic coven leader, Kate and The Magical Enforcement Agency team up with the local police to find the killer. When a tenacious reporter sticks her nose in both the investigation and Prospero’s past in the covens, old ghosts resurface.

As the infighting between covens turns ugly, an all-out war brews in the slums of Babylon.

Deadly Spells is the third novel in the Prospero’s War urban fantasy series that started with Dirty Magic and Cursed Moon.

"Kate Prospero is my new favorite heroine -- imperfect, haunted, driven, and dangerous."—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."—Vicki Pettersson
"With each exceptional book in her Prospero's War series, Wells adds more shades of grey to Kate's already murky world.

Wells is just the author for you!"—RT Book Reviews on Deadly Spells (Top Pick!)
