I have just finished Sacrificial Magic and put myself on the waiting list for the next book in the Downside Ghosts series. This series defies characterization. It is a a post-apocalyptic tale, a detective story, and an urban fantasy (but no typical vampire/werewolf stuff, yawn -- the main character is a drug-addicted witch who battles malevolent ghosts). This has quickly become my favorite series, and I cannot wait for more. Here is why: The world is captivating, original, and carefully built. T ...more

Wow. I've never loved a heroine so much that I wanted to strangle before. Chess' self destructive behavior is painful to read. Makes me just want to shake her and ask her what the hell she's doing.

I've never been so emotionally involved in book s I've read as I am with this series. I feel the roller coaster of emotions Chess goes through as if they were my own. I've also never enjoyed a romantic book, yet this one has left me all warm, and fuzzy. I LOVE how even though there are a million crazy things going on it still feels so realistic because the emotional ties and relationships are so complex and genuine.
I LOVE Stacia Kane and now vow to read anything she writes!
