Like gritty urban fantasy with a sex, drugs, rock and roll? Ridiculous question, I know. You should check out Stacia Kane’s Downside Series. The latest release is Sacrificial Magic, which I basically couldn’t put down.
1. No werewolves or vampires here. Just ghosts. Nasty, murderous ghosts and the living, trying to get by.
2. Chess is awesome. Sure, she’s got flaws but that’s why I can’t help but love her.
3. I’m recommending the fourth book in the series but clearly, I want you to check out the first book first: Unholy Ghosts. It’s a great series.
