Stacia Kane asserts the moral right to be identified as the author of this work. The Downside Ghosts series is about a witch plagued by the figurative ghosts of a horrific, abusive childhood that she takes drugs in a futile attempt to forget, living in a world plagued by literal ghosts who want nothing more than to destroy every living being they find in a futile attempt to steal that life energy for themselves.

Stacia Kane’s UNHOLY GHOSTS is one of the most interesting books I’ve read in months. Vivid characters and superior world-building combine with a wonderful sense of pace to create a gripping book.

There is magic in this book; I don't mean magic the characters use, but the magic of a book that sticks with you. Yes, as a lot of other reviewers have said, Chess, our heroine, is an unrepentant junkie with a myriad of issues, many of which she brings on herself. The other main characters are involved in drugs, prostitution, and gang warfare. They are all flawed, dark, and damaged, and so is the world they live in. I don't see any easy answers for anyone in this book, and that's OK. While part of me thinks maybe this book is misplaced under Urban Fantasy, I also think people have forgotten what dystopian novels are really all about in the flood of pretty teen dystopia-lite novels out there. Go back to your Orwell (1984), Phillip Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electronic Sheep), Huxley (Brave New World), and Burgess (A Clockwork Orange). Now I know there are going to be people out there who don't like that comparison, and I'm not claiming this book is going to be a classic literary work someday, but it really reminds me of the feel of those works, but with a large helping of hope - our characters here aren't giving up, they are living their lives the best they can.

As for the cant, or lingo, or street talk - whatever you want to call it. While it could be difficult to follow at the beginning, once I caught the rhythm, I frankly found it musical and beautiful. Things in this world are not like they are in ours, so why would the language stay the same? In a way it reminded me of the "lost children" in Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome, and I think that is an apt comparison to the world Chess, Terrible, and Lex live in.

This is not your typical UF book. Our heroine doesn't have new magical powers popping out whenever they are convenient, she fumbles her way through situations and her own life as best she can, and is always doubting herself and her own strengths. But there is a core of hopefulness in these characters that shines through. And the feels. Man, the feels just come up and hit you out of nowhere and they are heartbreaking, sometimes in a good way.

This is a book that will stick with me and I am sure I will read again. Also planning on buying the next book in the series and hoping that Chess can find the things she needs to begin a trek towards a better life.

This book took me a while to get into. So if you are starting it and unsure whether it gets better, it does.

This is basically a story about a female witch who works for The Church. A Church that has taken over the world since ghosts and spirits were proven to be real. The world she create a is a depressive one. The main character teams up with a "bad guy" to save the day and then there was another bad guy she sort of likes in what seems destined to become a love triangle.

What is funny to me about this book is there is a lot I didn't like, but at the end of the book I find as a whole I enjoyed it and want to buy another book in the series.

The main character is an addict and she's unapologetic about it. She doesn't want to "get better" or be saved, she is what she is. For me that's refreshing. The author does show addiction well imho. What I mean is the thought process and how she acts seems believable. People think addicts are bums begging on the street, most addicts work and function in society. The book does a good job showing how drug addiction is just like a job. How her thoughts are consumed with making sure she has enough, needs to take more and planning when to take more. I didn't find it oft-putting but I can imagine others could.

The two characters that she might or might not have romantic feelings are also not clean cut nice guys. They both work for dealers and both partake of drugs with her. Again it doesn't bother me that they aren't "nice guys". I wish the writer would be more descriptive when she describes the characters appearance. I have no idea what any of them even remotely look like except in my mind. But before I got the hint that one of the guys might be a future love interest I had imagined him as an overweight Honkey Tonk Man (the old wrestler lol)

The story was a bit predictable. I knew who "did it" almost as soon as the character was introduced. Also some of the storylines were a bit convenient. I also don't like when the hero or heroine just seem to "win" by luck and not some supreme bad assery. She's a debunker who gets rid of ghosts. However I don't feel like she's exceptional. She sort of wings it and hopes it. works.

The world building was pretty good. I did seem to "get" what the world was like and how it ended up that way. I hope they expand on that in the next book. I also was confused at how crazy the world has gotten. It seems like hell on Earth. But then she mentions grabbing a paper towel or buying a new matress and comforter set. Do they still have department stores? I was a little leary on that.

I hope more is explained next book. All in all I enjoyed this book. I'm definitely reading the next one.

This product was a personal purchase for myself at the normal retail price. I am reviewing it because I want to share my experience with other potential customers.
