Waiting on Wednesday #4

Hosted by Breaking the Spine: A platform to share the unreleased book I’m impatiently patiently waiting to get my hands on….Gimme Gimme Now!!!!!!!! ;)

Chasing Magic

A Deadly High.……….

Magic-Wielding Church Witch  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 (Terrible)who’s become her reason for living.

Okay so, I just finished reading the ARC of Sacrificial Magic the predecessor to Chasing Magic, so you would think I would be grateful Right? Well no I’m just that greedy because true to the brilliance of Stacia Kane’s writing of my most favorite UF series Downside Ghost; Sacrificial Magic blew me away. So now, I’m counting the 126 days but who’s counting until Chasing Magic is released! ;) Until then I’ll be having Terrible & Chess withdrawals. If you’re unfamiliar with this dark, and gritty UF series called Downside Ghosts, I highly suggest you do check it out! I  Terrible, and Chess is an awesomely cool protagonist too. When you do try it please come back and let me know if you caught Terrible Fever, because this is one illness you won’t want to be cured from.

  1. This book looks really good!!! I’ve never heard of this series before, but I’m going to check it out (: I feel the same way with the countdown about Larissa Ione’s books! I was great to chat on Twitter about our love for Damon. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am following via Linky :D Have a great day!

  2. Hey! I’ve never heard of this series but it looks really good so I’ll have to definitely check it out (: I am the same way about waiting for books with Larissa Ione’s Lord of Deliverance Series as you are with this series. It sucks that it takes so long for our favorite books to come out! I enjoyed our lovely chat about the drool and lust worthy Damon lol. Following you via Linky :D I think I have told you this before but I love your blog… it’s so colorful and neat.

    Have a wonderful day!

      Oh Kayla,
      I also love the Lords of Deliverance series! Larissa Ione is awesome, however Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series blow doors on all other series.:) Whereas Ion’e is PNR, Kane’s is UF.

      I didn’t remember you telling me that you love my blog, but I love hearing it, thank you!;) You and I both have parajunkee blogs btw.:)) Thanks for the follow back, and I love our drool worthy twitter/Damon chats btw!;)

  3. I just added Stacia Kane’s series to my TBR and I think I’ll be picking her up this week at the store :) She’s one I just haven’t gotten around b/c of all my other series but I’ve heard awesome stuff about her!!!

    You blog is awesome!!! Thanks for visiting me so I can follow you now!!!

      Thank you Kristin. I also really appreciate the follow back. Keep me posted when you read Downside!:))

    Lol I know you love this series so waiting for the next book will be hard for you. At least they are coming out pretty close together instead of a year wait between them. You know I’m in love with Terrible and Chess so I must keep reading this series to catch up.

    • MissVain says:

      Alexa, you know what was so awful was the wait for Sacrificial Magic has been a much longer wait than a year! Talk about torture. I’m very excited she’s (Kane) is making up for the wait by giving us the books back to back!! Yay!;))
      I’m so happy you love Terrible & Chess, it’s as if I wrote the series or gave birth to them, that’s how proud I am that you LOVE Downside Ghosts!!;)

  5. I have had the first book in this series on my TBR list forever! My favorite author recommended the series to me so I know I’ll probably like it. I just haven’t had the time. So many books!
    My WOW

  6. Hayley G says:

    Ahh you’re right I do love your pick this week! I’m so jealous that you and Christen have read Sacrificial Magic, I’m trying really hard to get Del Rey to approve me :) . New Follower! :)

    • MissVain says:

      Hi Hayley

      :) I knew you would love my WoW choice this week. When I requested it from netgalley I moped (pitiful) all day on Valentine’s Day as if I had a bf and he dunped me; just dying for SM, but then when I got approved the next day I was back in business and happy! ;)

  7. Felicia says:

    Interesting pick. I’ve heard of Stacia Kane, but haven’t really picked up one of her books yet. Sounds interesting though.
