Stacia Kane - City of Ghosts

Chess Putnam has a lot on her plate. Mangled human corpses have started to show up on the streets of Downside, and Chess’s bosses at the Church of Real Truth have ordered her to team up with the ultra-powerful Black Squad agency to crack the grisly case.

Chess is under a binding spell that threatens death if she talks about the investigation, but the city’s most notorious crime boss—and Chess’s drug dealer—gets wind of her new assignment and insists on being kept informed. If that isn’t bad enough, a sinister street vendor appears to have information Chess needs. Only he’s not telling what he knows, or what it all has to do with the vast underground City of Eternity.

Now Chess will have to navigate killer wraiths, First Elders, and a lot of seriously nasty magic—all while coping with some not-so-small issues of her own. And the only man Chess can trust to help her through it all has every reason to want her dead.

Comment: Amazing! Completely amazing!
I loved this book, everything was great. Chess is sad, she's down because Terrible hates her and she has strong feelings for him. Plus she's bound not to share Church matters with others. The Lamaru are attacking again and now she has to work with a partner. Her live is a mess.
I thought things couldn't work out for Chess...she still has a long way to go in order to reach happiness. I'm not even sure on how will she do that but she'll have to eventually. But in this book she thinks and solves a major issue, she saves the Church and she talks to Terrible. Things look rocky between them but there's this HFN that just made my day!!
I'm sure the author will find lots of obstacles for them, and I'm a bit afraid of what's to come, but hopefully in the end of the series...they'll end up in perfection.
