Waiting On Wednesday (32)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"Dirty Magic" by Jaye Wells

This book is to be released January 21st, 2014. It is the first book in the Prospero's War series.

The first in an all-new urban fantasy series by USA Today bestseller Jaye Wells.

The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch.

The more Prospero learns about the dangerous new potion the MEA is investigating, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case. Especially once the investigation reveals their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier--on the same day she swore she'd never use dirty magic again.

Kate Prospero's about to learn the hard way that crossing a wizard will always get you burned, and that it when it comes to magic, you should never say never.

I have not read any of Jaye Wells's writing, but again, I have heard really great things. I heard she was a really good urban fantasy writer and since this book IS the start of a brand new series, I thought I'd try it out first before going back to read some of her earlier work. The cover is very cool. It looks like the way old comic books or movie posters which are two of my favorite visual art :)

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
