    Who loves it when Terrible says 'Chessiebomb', raise your hand?!So cute, and so needed after the turmoil of book 3. It was wonderful to just read happiness with Chess and Terrible. And actually, I really loved the short little plot with the 'Real Housewives'. It was cute.Yay for Downside Ghosts!

    Aw, this was very sweet. (Well, except for the drugs and orgies part.)

    Home is, without a doubt, everything a Downside fan could want. It gave me all of the warm and fuzzies I experienced at the end of City of Ghosts, but bigger and better. The plot essentially follows Chess as she works a debunking case where the so-called victims deny the ghosts exist. But what makes the story so damn good is the fact that Chess is finally happy. She is in love. And she doesn't screw anything up. We watch her revel in her relation...

    Oh, how I Terrible :) SWOON!! Fabulous. Couldn't ask for anything more. The quotes I loved most:"He looked better to her than anyone else in the world ever had."“Give you whatany you want, Chessiebomb. Anything.” Anytime he utters the word "Chessiebomb," I just want to melt ;-)This time he was the one who stopped, tugged her back to him. His hands were warm and solid on the sides of her face, cradling it while he kissed her. “Got some know...

    You can read this here. I think it will only be posted for a week, so go read it while it's there.This story takes place after City of Ghosts. To avoid spoilers, it is recommended that you read that book before reading this one.Once again, I am in absolute awe of Ms. Kane's writing talent. Home was a treat to read, especially those little moments of bliss encountered by Chess. It is so exciting to see how this character has developed over the pas...

    Very short, and oh, so sweet! I didn't even know Chess had it in her to be so empathetic! And Terrible *sighs* Terrible, I need more of Downside Ghosts like right now!No wonder this is my favorite series! Extremely well written, and a nice story to keep the fans happy while waiting for the next installment. Chess has changed so much since the first novel, even if she still has a lot of flaws, she finally realizes that some people can be trusted, ...

    "Terrible was...He was a miracle in a world without miracles, and she couldn't believe her luck. And there was nothing, absolutely fucking nothing, that she wouldn't do to keep him in her life, because without him it wouldn't be a life at all. So, yeah. She knew how it felt to find part of herself in someone else."Such a fast read, but it sucked me right back into the Downside world. This author is truly gifted, to make me love these two broken p...

But scratch that, I'm not going to be a debbie-downer so get yourself a copy of this short story and enjoy everything that is Terrible and Chess. It will definitely leave you with a ...

    "Give you whatany you want, Chessiebomb. Anything." Fans of Chess and Terrible, this is a must read. In classic Kane style we get the enchanted and the heart warming new Chessiebomb (how sweet is that!) and the loving, tender Terrible.This short but sweet and a teaser for Sacrificial Magic because it's kind of behind the scenes into a new relationship.Favorite quote of the book:His lips touched her forehead. "Don't give a fuck what else I got. Ai...

    If Kane's intention was to reward the reader for sticking with this series, she succeeded in a big way. “You so fuckin pretty, you got that?” The hand moved lower. “So pretty everywhere.”She swallowed. Her mouth had gone so dry it was hard to talk. “To you, maybe.”“Aye.” His lips moved further up her neck until he pulled away enough for their eyes to meet. “Aye, to me.” and this gem... “Got some knowledge for you.""Oh? What'...
