When Chess Putnam is ordered by an infamous crime boss—who also happens to be her drug dealer—to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she knows she must rise to the challenge. Adding to the intensity: Chess’s boyfriend, Terrible, doesn’t trust her, and Lex, the son of a rival crime lord, is trying to reignite the sparks between him and Chess.Plus there’s the little matter of Chess’s real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth, investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside. Someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead—and if Chess doesn’t watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks.As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she’s not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice.

The Good: I love where Devon seems to be taking this series! When i started reading it, I never thought that the world Devon Monk created would become so rich and intricate. The stories just keep getting better and better. amazing characters and enthralling adventures galore.
The Bad: I feel that the books in the Allie Beckstrom series tend to happen in such a short span of time, I wish the book had moved further ahead in time. Other than that i don’t really have any complaints.
The Romance: I LOVE Zavyon and Allie! I do wish we got more romance time, but with everything else going on, it is totally understandable and it didn't take away from enjoying the book at all. We still got some great heart melting goodness =D.
