5 Stars for Spells for the Dead : A Soulwood Novel by Faith Hunter

I started reading Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series in May of 2019. 

I devoured all the books, even read all the short story collections. I got the latest, Shattered Bonds, when it came out in October. I finished it in days.

Then I didn't know what to do with myself because I was totally immersed in the Jane Yellowrock world but I finished all the books.

Checking out the author's website I realized the Soulwood Novels were a spin-off series featuring a character Jane met in one of the books. It also features some side characters from Jane's books.

YES!!!! I was so excited to have more books to read in this world. Once again, I devoured them all quickly.

Nell is so different than Jane it took some adjusting to get used to her voice but I still fell into the books easily. 

Nell is rather new to working with people outside her church, living in the real world is still strange to her. What's even more strange is using her powers in front of people. She spent years hiding who she was and what she could do for fear the church would try to kill her.

Now working with PysLED she uses her abilities to help solve supernatural crimes.

She has no idea what she really is and every day she learns something new about herself and her powers.

In book 5 Nell faces something no one understands. Death magic that quickly destroys everything it touches. 

How can they fight something unknown? They don't know what kind of magic it is or who is controlling it. They don't even know why. And to make matters worse they have paranormal haters within the human law enforcement agencies that don't want to work them.

This book will suck you right in.

Twists, turns, deceit, and strange bedfellows leave you wondering who is behind the magic and why.

Book Description:

Nell Ingram faces a dark craft known as death magic in the newest pulse-pounding paranormal procedural in the New York Times bestselling Soulwood series.

Nell Ingram is a rookie PsyLed agent, using the powers she can channel from deep within the earth to solve paranormal crimes. Together with her team, she's taken on the darkest magic and the direst foes. But she'll need to tap into every ounce of power she has for her newest case.

Nell is called to the Tennessee mansion of a country music star and finds a disturbing scene--dead bodies rapidly decaying before everyone's eyes. The witch on her team, T. Laine, knows this can only be one thing: death magic, a rare type of craft used to steal life forces. PsyLed needs to find this lethal killer fast. But when a paranormal-hating FBI agent tries to derail the investigation, they find themselves under attack from all sides.
