Melissa's Review:

Kate Prospero returns in book three of the Prospero's War series. This time around Kate is on a case trying to find out who is attempting to start a coven war. She works for the Magical Enforcement Agency aka MEA trying to get dirty potions off the streets and solve crimes. When a coven member winds up dead, Kate knows something is amiss and there will be other coven members seeking revenge. You know it's going to be really bad when some of the big coven leaders are going in hiding or leaving town. There is never a dull moment in Babylon.

The love aspect I still can't decide who's team I'm rooting for. Morales, Kate's partner clearly likes her and I do enjoy his character. He's a hunky alpha male that I wouldn't mind having for myself. Then there is Volos, Kate's old flame from her teens. Volos knows Kate's true self, how she was when she was a member of the coven, all the dirty bits of her past and why she has set defenses. JWells is making it hard on a girl, I'll be interested to see what happens in the next book.

I really enjoy JWell's writing style, it's gritty and in this series, Kate is always determined to solve the crime and get the bad guy. I started out reading Well's Sabina Kane series and thought it couldn't get better than that but the Prospero's War series is quickly becoming my favorite. Kate somehow balances being a "mom" to her little brother, hanging out with her BFF in her very limited free time and kicking butt while solving cases. I adore this series and highly recommend it if you're looking for a gritty Urban Fantasy with a kick butt cop lead.


  1. I"m skipping your review because I'm waiting for it but I'm so jealous! And now seeing you loved it, Im even more curious. I so can't wait!

  2. I do need to read it ! And to find more time to read all the books I need to read !

  3. This is a series that I really need to pick up. I read her other UF series, Red Headed Stepchild and loved it. I've been saying I'm going to pick this one up since I saw the release of book one and just haven't gotten to it. *hangs head in shame* I will read these at some point. I promise.

  4. Ooo still can't choose? I'm usually firmly on one team or the other. Can't wait to find some time to read these and see what happens :D

  5. Shit it's already on the third book! I haven't cracked open the first one!

    I'll take your word for it. I Am making my second Cherry Popped, I'll give the first one a go. Hopefully I like it. I do trust your UF recs
