Magic is a drug. Dirty Deals Lead to Deadly Ends.

When the Magic Enforcement Agency is called out to the scene of a dirty magic lab explosion, a body with a bullet wound is found in the smoldering ruins. As Detective Kate Prospero and her partner, Special Agent Drew Morales, hunt down the killer, they uncover evidence that a dangerous new coven may be operating in the Cauldron.

It's not long before the bodies start piling up, and the heat is on for the team to make an arrest. Solving the murders will require unraveling dangerous alliances between the city's dirty magic covens. And if they're not careful, the new complexities of Morales and Prospero's own partnership threaten to make a volatile situation downright deadly.

Volatile Bonds is book 4 in the Prospero's War series. It's been awhile since a new book has been released in this series and I was so happy to see that it would be continued! We're back in the action with Detective Kate Prospero tracking down the bad guys/gals that have some sort of magical crime. In this installment, Kate Prospero is working on a case that left a coven member dead and a new mysterious dirty magic is popping up on the street that's leaving people dead. While trying to dig up details about the drug we find out that something is amiss and a new power player seems to be in the Cauldron and they're not above playing dirty. Kate and her partner Morales have to figure out who's behind it all before the clock runs out. With a shocking twist that I didn't see coming, this book is a must-read. Volatile Bonds brings another great addition to a series I've missed a ton. I really enjoy Jaye Well's writing style. Kate's character is determined to do her best professionally as well as on a personal level. I love that while the story does mainly focus on the cases, we do get to see her friends as well as her little brother that she takes care of. Kate's also not a perfect character, she makes mistakes and has to own up to them. My only big complaint is that I could have done without the random broken English from the Chinese leader. The woman was playing naive and it was probably meant to portray that but she spoke perfect English before and after that moment so it kind of bugged me. Other than that though I thought this was a great addition to the Prospero's War series and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book. If you enjoy Urban Fantasy with a detective or magic you'll love this series.

Kate’s back! And urban fantasy bestselling author Jaye Wells has another hit. “Volatile Bonds” has all the familiar and outrageous characters we love in the Prospero’s War series, as well as some unique and treacherous newcomers. In book four, Detective Kate Prospero and her partner, Special Agent Drew Morales, members of the Magic Enforcement Agency (MEA), have a new foe. A dangerous coven has arrived in the Cauldron, a new potion is on the street, and former beau, now mayor, John Volos appears to be in the thick of it. Wells is a master at creating flawed characters filled with secrets and guilt. In this latest tale, we learn what some of those secrets are and the guilt behind them. Battling dirty magic, murder, evil and powerful adversaries, time is not on their side, and Kate, Drew and the MEA are again pushed to the breaking point. Can relationships survive? Can Kate move forward? Or will her past as a former family member of a powerful dirty magic cartel prove too much? This series draws you in, and unlike some fantasy, life in Prospero’s War seems all too real. Great characters. Snarky and sarcastic wit. Fast pace. Twists and turns. It’s a book that’s hard to put down, and one you can’t wait to see what happens next.
