.— John Kwiatkowski
The Sabina Kane series is easily on of the best new urban fantasy series to come around in a while, and the Prospero's War series is even better!
Fans of the Sabina books will find a lot to love in Dirty Magic. Wells tackles some of the same issues she dealt with in the Sabina series, but in a new way. The blend of police prodecural and urban fantasy is refreshing, and will appeal to readers who typically don't read urban fantasy.
— John Kwiatkowski
I read this 6 months before it came out, and was dying for it to come out so I could start selling it. It's the start of a new series, and has all the elements of a great police procedural with some magic thrown in. Wells calls it The Wire with wizards. If you're a fan of early Laurell K. Hamilton and Kim Harrison, or just like a really good genre-bending read, you don't want to pass this up. It's also a perfect place to start if you're new to the genre. Wells draws inspiration from the mystery genre, and I'm so excited about this shift in the genre. This is really my HIGHEST recommendation! - John— From John's Best of 2014
"Kate Prospero is my new favorite heroine-imperfect, haunted, driven, and dangerous."
-New York Times bestseller Kevin Hearne
"Jaye Wells has created a fresh, magical world full of potion junkies and alchemists that promises to break new ground in paranormal thrillers."
-Laurell K. Hamilton
"Dirty Magic is like nothing else currently happening in urban fantasy. Grim, gritty, and great."
"Jaye Wells raises the urban fantasy bar with DIRTY MAGIC, a hard-boiled series debut as unique and surprising as the creatures and characters peopling it. Kate Prospero is charged with policing the Cauldron, a magical world so fully realized, and so gritty, it gets under your nails. Wells is known for deftly weaving non-stop action with no-holds barred humor, but the unique and deeply drawn relationships are the real alchemy here. DIRTY MAGIC showcases seasoned pro, Wells, at the top of her game, and establishes newcomer Kate Prospero as the urban fantasy heroine to beat."
-New York Times Bestseller Vicki Pettersson
"Grim and gritty and completely fascinating."
"Hold on tight -- a gritty new heroine has joined the pantheon of shoot-first, ask-questions-later protagonists."

"A fast-paced fun book"
-New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris on Red-Headed Stepchild
"Last year, I wrote that Jaye Wells had the potential to be the next coming of Laurell K. Hamilton and Kim Harrison. This year, I'll amend that slightly: Jaye Wells is the next coming of LKH and Kim Harrison."
