Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells
The Magical Enforcement Agency keeps dirty magic off the streets, but there's a new blend out there that's as deadly as it is exclusive.
When patrol cop Kate Prospero shoots the lead snitch in this crucial case, she's brought in to explain herself. But the more she learns about the investigation, the more she realises she must secure a spot on the MEA task force.
Especially when she discovers that their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier - on the same day she sworn she'd given up dirty magic for good. Kate Prospero's about to learn the hard way that crossing a wizard will always get you burned, and that when it comes to magic, you should never say never.
Kate gave up magic ten years ago after a tragic event but after she shoots and kills a man high on some new potion, she ends up becoming involved in the case that he was a snitch for. Unfortunately this brings her in close range with magic again as well as a man she also gave up ten years ago.
I love Kate Prospero! She's a really fun heroine ... she's spunky, kick ass and has a talent for magic. She manages to fill the void left by Wells' Sabina Kane departure. Although only time will tell whether Kate will get her own Giguhl like sidekick (that'd be awesome though).
Anyone who's read my reviews of the Sabina Kane books will know exactly how much I love Jaye Wells writing. She writes really great, strong heroines and she does her research! She went to a police run bootcamp to learn more about law enforcement so she can write true-to-life characters.
I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to getting more into this series with each release. BRING ON BOOK NUMBER 2!
