Spells For The Dead
Soulwood #5
by Faith Hunter
Ace, $7.99, 384pp
Published: July 2020

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.

Country music star Stella has been mysteriously killed. Even worse, whatever magical force killed her is spreading though her house and land. Nell and the team need to find the culprit quickly because a para-hating FBI agent is determined to pin it on an innocent witch.

On the home front, Nell’s pregnant sister Esther is staying with her and their younger sister, Mud. Well. Esther has moved in since her husband has divorced her in the eyes of their fundamentalist polygamous church. He accuses her of being unfaithful but the truth is he cannot deal with the fact she, like Nell, is a paranormal with unnamed earth magic. 

Nell learns more about her magics and what kind of paranormal she is, helps her sister Esther break free of their church and her relationship with the were-cat, Occam, progresses.

I have loved this series from the beginning and this entry was not a disappointment. I raced through it in a day and half. The action is fast and the character development is satisfying. This series is highly recommended, I can’t wait for the next installment. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
