[close] For fans of Stacia Kane's Downside Ghosts series (and its leading man Terrible). Sure, he’s an enforcer for a drug lord. Sure, his face is busted up. We don’t care. We’ve got Terrible Fever. Thanks to Spaz P for thinking up the name to our illness!!! Symptoms of Terrible Fever from VampireBookClub.net: * You read Unholy Ghosts or Unholy Magic (or both) in a single sitting. * You follow @StaciaKane on Twitter waiting for Terrible treasures. * You have forgotten the original description of Terrible in Unholy Ghosts and only focus on the bits of soul he’s bared to Chess. * You find yourself shaking your head, muttering “that slap!” * You re-read the Unholy Magic scene at the shed, and imagine what you wish Chess had said …and let your mind play out what would happen next. * You listen to Terrible’s favorite rockabilly-tinged punk tunes while driving to work. * You don’t need another Lex sex scene, but multiples with Terrible — make-up sex or otherwise — would be heartily welcomed. * You sigh in relief after reading a City of Ghosts review, because you know if you hold on tight you’ll get your Terrible fix.
