Deadly Spells by Jaye Wells

Prospero’s War, Book 3

Synopsis: After the grisly murder of a dirty magic coven leader, Kate Prospero and The Magical Enforcement Agency team up with the local police to find the killer. But as the infighting between covens turns ugly, an all-out war brews in the slums of Babylon.

When a tenacious reporter sticks her nose in both the investigation and Prospero’s past in the covens, old ghosts resurface. The team will have to use all the weapons in their arsenal to stop the coven war and find the killer before the case brings down all their careers – and their lives.

Review: I had a great time with the first and second book and it’s true that I was eager to immerse myself in the sequel since the end of the previous volume. I must say that each of the characters manages to take us with them and I was curious to find out what would happen afterwards.

So we find our dear Kate Prospero who is facing a new survey. Indeed, it seems that the head of her former clan was assassinated, which could trigger a war. Since the previous events, each Covens evolves amid of visible tensions. But while the challenges keep coming and that everyone stays alert, a new player enters the field. Oh yes, a member of a Brazilian gang is in town, and he appears to be at the source of all problems. While Kate tries to flush out the man, the bodies are piling up in the streets and everyone stays on their toes.

Of course, Volos is present again here, as all the characters that we have previously discovered. I admit that it is a character that attracts me especially and even if the feelings there between him and Kate are conflicting, I admit that I am still waiting for something to happen, even if it is perhaps in vain. I must say that he has a real bad boy temperament, and the attitude that goes with it. The problem is that there are consequences that go with that. And then we have Kate’s partner … oh what a difficult choice for the young woman who is determined to stay alone. The problems are only amplifying between Danny and his troubles at school or the changing attitudes of her boss, the harassment of a specifically determined journalist or the shenanigans of her uncle Abe. Too much to handle for one person …

I took great pleasure to follow the whole story and I admit that I was surprised by many of the revelations. Oh yes, and we will learn more here about the past of the young woman, what she wants and what has been hidden from her for so long.

As you can see, a very good volume again and I am very curious to have more now.

  1. I remember that Kate was much less annoying in this one (in book two though, she was insufferable!) I too would be interested to know more, but after so long I have not heard any news that there will be a sequel. I might be wrong though, maybe I just need to dig around the internet some more!
