A DEADLY HIGH 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.

I'll have to tide myself over with the little side novellas she's written. This was by far my favorite in the series, whic...
My Initial Reaction... Stacia Kane sure knows how to put you through an emotional ringer! By the time I was done with Chasing Magic I'm pretty sure I'd experienced every single emotion possible - happiness, frustration, anger, fear, sadness, disappointment, arousal, surprise, excitement, and for the...
I rarely write my reviews immediately after finishing a book but at the end of my unintentional, 13 hour Chasing Magic read-a-thon, all I wanted was more Stacia Kane! Unfortunately for me, I'm now caught-up on this series and stuck playing the waiting game right alongside all of the other poor Downs...
Still in love with this series. It's completely different to anything else I've read, which is probably why I like it so much. It's getting 5 stars for the romantic aspects of the story. Think it would only have been 4 stars if the romance hadn't gone up a level. I think they are a really nice coupl...
5*!!! PERFECTION!!!I'm sorry. I can't write a proper review. This will mainly be me gushing and professing my undying love for this book, okay?Argh! How do I even begin to list what I loved? Okay. Let’s start with this:My fears towards the end of [b:Sacrificial Magic|8786358|Sacrificial Magic (Downs...
