IT’S A THIN LINE BETWEEN ALIVE AND UNDEAD. Chess Putnam has a lot on her plate. Mangled human corpses have started to show up on the streets of Downside, and Chess’s bosses at the Church of Real Truth have ordered her to team up with the ultra-powerful Black Squad agency to crack the grisly case.Chess is under a binding spell that threatens death if she talks about the investigation, but the city’s most notorious crime boss—and Chess’s drug dealer—gets wind of her new assignment and insists on being kept informed. If that isn’t bad enough, a sinister street vendor appears to have information Chess needs. Only he’s not telling what he knows, or what it all has to do with the vast underground City of Eternity.Now Chess will have to navigate killer wraiths, First Elders, and a lot of seriously nasty magic—all while coping with some not-so-small issues of her own. And the only man Chess can trust to help her through it all has every reason to want her dead.

However while it may be true that part of the story was compelling reading, the final scenes with Chess and Terrible made it all worth...
When I read the first Downside Ghosts book I enjoyed it, but put off reading the rest for quite a while. After finishing book #2, I knew I couldn't put off reading more and jumped into 'City of Ghosts' the moment I got my hands on it. By far the best Downside Ghosts book yet. The first two books wer...
This book had a lot of good things about it...tight plot, interesting intrigue...but it had A LOT more exposition. And Chess found herself constantly questioning everything, which may be real, but is really annoying to read. The single thing that kept me reading and, more importantly, loving this bo...
