Chess Putnam has a lot on her plate. Mangled human corpses have started to show up on the streets of Downside, and Chess's bosses at the Church of Real Truth have ordered her to team up with the ultra-powerful Black Squad agency to crack the grisly case.

Chess is under a binding spell that threatens death if she talks about the investigation, but the city's most notorious crime boss--and Chess's drug dealer--gets wind of her new assignment and insists on being kept informed. If that isn't bad enough, a sinister street vendor appears to have information Chess needs. Only he's not telling what he knows, or what it all has to do with the vast underground City of Eternity.

Now Chess will have to navigate killer wraiths, First Elders, and a lot of seriously nasty magic--all while coping with some not-so-small issues of her own. And the only man Chess can trust to help her through it all has every reason to want her dead.

NEVER boring, intriguing plots, fascinating h & H, with one of the most interesting, dark & creepy world building I’ve ever read. Warning ... I recommend trying to read the last 70ish pages in one sitting cause interruption may cause the reader to exude HELLISH behavior to her family or loved ones!!! I had many heart thumping moments when reading the last portion of this book.

If someone asked me what this series was about, pretty sure I would be at a loss for words. Explaining to someone why I love a series with such a dark & creepy world with not just flawed characters but REALLY flawed characters ... impossible. You have to read them to understand. I do really love an h that can do crazy powerful magic though and that makes Chess’ character interesting for me. I may have ZERO in common with her but this extremely talented writer makes me care a great deal for her and want Terrible to be her saving grace eventually...please!

This is the third title in her DOWNSIDE GHOSTS series. This heroine has more problems than any UF heroine I've run across, and her hero is definitely not your run-of-the-mill tall, dark, and handsome dude. Try this series if you're looking fresh urban fantasy with some extraordinary twists.
