SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY # 3
I started reading the Downside Ghosts series in 2010, when I first spotted them at my local library. I had heard nothing about them . I just saw the covers and picked them up.
They were the older covers, and they just caught my attention .
Not long after I found them in my local independent grocer store and picked these three up for a bargain.
Here is an interview I managed to snag with Stacia, it is one of my faves. I did this back in 2011 with Stacia.
The Downside Ghosts is a very gritty , dangerous series. Visually I see it playing out very dark and yet colorful in my mind.
Chess Putnam would be , I think, my all time # 1 female kickass lead in an urban fantasy series.
She is different. She is an addict, she cares for her friends and she seems to get herself into a lot of trouble. I loved reading the first three books in the series. I now have some catching up to do. I keep getting them from the library but keep having to return Sacrificial Magic and Chasing Magic, cause I run out of time to read them. Plus there are also a few novellas I need to catch up on.
Terrible, yes that is his name, is quite a brilliant character. He is not your normal male hero. He isn't even particularly attractive, but the more you read him, the more you love him.
When a character can do that. The author is good!
Terrible has his own local tongue when he talks. So you really feel Terrible when you read him. In your head you are talking like him. I really like this about him, even if it did slow my reading a touch when he spoke, sometimes. It made him more the character he is.
Terrible even has his own group on Goodreads.

Lots of great things on her page.
This is a series I highly recommend sinking your teeth into. It is adult so comes with adult maturity in smexiness.
You can find my reviews for the first three books and the novella plus other postings HERE Just scroll down to you get to them.
Stacia also has another series, Megan Chase. I have not yet read this series.
If you are looking for a good gritty time in an urban fantasy world, then pick up Downside Ghosts if you haven't already.
