Rising star Wells’ latest heroine, Kate Prospero, is fighting a war within herself as she tries to abstain from using “dirty magic.” Wells does an exceptional job depicting the hard choices and struggles caused by addiction, while also delivering a gritty and exciting procedural thriller. When it comes to crafting outstanding dark urban fantasy, Wells is fast becoming a master!
The upcoming rare Blue Moon is already wreaking havoc on the city of Babylon. As a result, Kate, in her new job as a detective with the Magical Enforcement Agency, is getting quite the workout. The theft of some dangerous magical potions from a powerful coven leaves Kate and her partner Morales with the sense that something significant is afoot. As events take an even more ominous turn, Kate is forced to confront her incarcerated and dangerous uncle, Abe Prospero, and her own reservations about using magic. (ORBIT, Aug., 400 pp., $14.00)
