A DEADLY HIGH
Magic-wielding Churchwitch and secret addict Chess Putnam knows better than anyone just how high a price people are willing to pay for a chemical rush. But when someone with money to burn and a penchant for black magic starts tampering with Downside’s drug supply, Chess realizes that the unlucky customers are paying with their souls—and taking the innocent with them, as the magic-infused speed compels them to kill in the most gruesome ways possible.
As if the streets weren’t scary enough, the looming war between the two men in her life explodes, taking even more casualties and putting Chess squarely in the middle. Downside could become a literal ghost town if Chess doesn’t find a way to stop both the war and the dark wave of death-magic, and the only way to do that is to use both her addiction and her power to enter the spell and chase the magic all the way back to its malevolent source. Too bad that doing so will probably kill Chess—if the war doesn’t first destroy the man who’s become her reason for living.

Title: Chasing Magic April 15, 2013 In this story, Chess is attempting to solve a case for Bump, not the Church, which meant that she and Terrible worked closely together. That was a good thing as there was quite a bit of focus on the dynamics of their relationship. While I found the case really interesting, Chess and Terrible’s deepening feelings eclipsed it all for me.

It's all about Terrible and Chess
Terrible makes some pretty strong declarations that seem to be penetrating Chess’ drug-numbed brain and she’s beginning to take those first tough steps to self appreciation. Chess isn’t even close to where she needs to be but you can see the first signs that she’s going to give situations a second and third consideration before acting. She had several instances in this story where her typical reactions would be to do something self destructive and Chess was able to pull back, reconsider and do something different. There was an occasion where, even though she eventually did the right thing, it went pretty far. This is a huge development for her, even though my stomach turned at how far she let things go.
Chess’ relationship with Elder Griffin is also tested and we learned some things about him that were surprising. Edsel also has more of a role this time and that was a good thing.
I don’t know where the next story in this series will head but I’m hoping we see Chess’ drug usage evolve as she gains confidence through her relationship with Terrible and others. These stories are still pretty amazing for me and I cannot wait for the next installment.
