Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts #5) | Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: Aug 2012 | Publisher: Harper Voyager | Artist: Unknown
Magic-wielding Churchwitch and secret addict Chess Putnam knows better than anyone just how high a price people are willing to pay for a chemical rush. But when someone with money to burn and a penchant for black magic starts tampering with Downside’s drug supply, Chess realizes that the unlucky customers are paying with their souls – and taking the innocent with them, as the magic-infused speed compels them to kill in the most gruesome ways possible.
As if the streets weren’t scary enough, the looming war between the two men in her life explodes, taking even more casualties and putting Chess squarely in the middle. Downside could become a literal ghost town if Chess doesn’t find a way to stop both the war and the dark wave of death-magic, and the only way to do that is to use both her addiction and her power to enter the spell and chase the magic all the way back to its malevolent source. Too bad that doing so will probably kill Chess – if the war doesn’t first destroy the man who’s become her reason for living.
This is the UK cover and I just love it. It’s probably one of my favourites of the series. I think everything just works really well. I love the title font, the light blue in the background and for the additional text. The tattoo is gorgeous and the red lipstick just pops. I also agree with Laura, her expression is very provocative, it’s either she’s feeling sexy or she’s high, can’t decide which LOL.
Ooh, this is much more sexy than the other covers in the series. There is something about Chess’s pose that is very seductive. She could be high of course, but I like the ambiguity as it matches the series perfectly. Her make up, with the red lipstick is great too, gives her a slight 50s look. I really like it!
