I’m very excited to announce the January group read will be Street Magic by Caitlin Kittredge. It’s the first in her Black London series. It’s darker urban fantasy big on witchcraft and fey. And I’m confident those of you who love the grittier elements of Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series will dig on Black London.
I’ll add group read discussions to our Goodreads group, so chat it up as you read. We’ll group up the last week of January to discuss Street Magic with all the spoiler-y goodness (watch @VampBookClub for frequent reminders) and the VBC review will be coming to the blog soon. In the meantime, will you be joining us in reading Street Magic? The official blurb follows to convince you.
Her name is Pete Caldecott. She was just sixteen when she met Jack Winter, a gorgeous, larger-than-life mage who thrilled her with his witchcraft. Then a spirit Jack summoned killed him before Pete’s eyes—or so she thought.
Now a detective, Pete is investigating the case of a young girl kidnapped from the streets of London. A tipster’s chilling prediction has led police directly to the child…but when Pete meets the informant, she’s shocked to learn he is none other than Jack. Strung out on heroin, Jack a shadow of his former self. But he’s able to tell Pete exactly where Bridget’s kidnappers are hiding: in the supernatural shadow-world of the fey.
Even though she’s spent years disavowing the supernatural, Pete follows Jack into the invisible fey underworld, where she hopes to discover the truth about what happened to Bridget—and what happened to Jack on that dark day so long ago…
