9780007433117: Sacrificial Magic (Downside Ghosts, Book 4)

Enter a world of danger, ghosts and magic in the fourth book of the fantastic Downside Ghosts series.

If you liked the compelling characters in 50 Shades of Grey, you’ll love the Downside Ghosts series.

Ghosts; ghouls; things that go bump in the night. Chess has seen them all in her role as a witch and ghost hunter.

Right now life is going surprisingly well for Chess Putnam. Her bank balance is healthy, she’s pretty sure she can call Terrible her “boyfriend”, and the last few months have been devoid of anyone trying to kill her.

So when Chess is ordered by an infamous crime boss – who also happens to be her drug dealer – to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she is unsurprised; she knew the recent calm wouldn’t last. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Chess’ ex lover Lex, son of a rival crime lord, is trying to re-ignite the sparks between them.

Plus there’s the little matter of Chess’ real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth; investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside. Someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead—and if Chess doesn’t watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks.

As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she’s not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice.

Review:

“Gripping… Vivid characters, superior world-building and a wonderful sense of pace… I was enthralled.”

“The world-building is unexpected and complex, the characters are alive, and the protagonist Chess is a treasure.”

“The characters are complex and indelible, the plot is fascinating, and I can hardly wait for another book…"

(all) Charlaine Harris
