Modern Sorcery By: Gary Jonas

                                                                 Modern Sorcery
                                                                 By: Gary Jonas
This is the back blurb and I know what you're thinking. I was thinking it too. Wow.

Magic can be deadly...

When Private Investigator Jonathan Shade's ex-lover walks into his Denver office asking him to prove her father didn't commit the murder that dozens of witnesses saw and security cameras captured, Shade finds himself in the thick of magical intrigue. In a world where evil warlocks refuse to die, magically engineered assassins deal merciless death, and ancient myths aren't quite so mythical, only Shade and his sexy partner, Kelly, can stop a power-hungry sorcerer from taking over the world.

Too bad Shade doesn't have any magic.

    Alright so normally this isn't the typical genre I read. But Modern Sorcery blew my mind away. The many one liners had me laughing so hard out loud that my husband was about to commit me. It was so refreshing to read a book that takes place in the west as opposed to the east coast or even the west coast.

    I started reading it yesterday at about 4 pm and finished it at 9 pm. This also included a break for dinner and bathroom breaks because I was about to explode.(I know way too much information) But I couldn't stop reading. I had to find out what happened with Jonathan and Kelly, who, by the way, is now my ultimate feminist hero. But I will warn you there is language, mild sexual innuendos, and violence. But in all honesty it's all the bad guys fault so don't let that stop you from reading this book. Trust me it's well worth the five hours. Or it might take a little longer but that's okay right?

If you would like to purchase an e-book go here
Or if you're one of those gotta have it in hand then you have to wait. I know it is a very sad thing but the paper back edition won't be out until October but don't worry I will keep you posted when they become available.
