On My Wishlist #54

This is a meme from Book Chick City. There are so many books out there that I want to read that this is the only way I can keep track! This week I'm back to Urban Fantasy - cos it's my favourite! :)
Street Magic - Caitlin Kittredge
Publisher: St Michael's Paperbacks
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…

I really enjoyed reading Black and White by Caitlin & Jackie Kessler last year so when I found that she'd written a series of books set in London involving magic, I have to get my hands on this book!  

Stormwalker - Allyson James
Publisher: Berkley
Janet Begay is a Stormwalker, capable of wielding the raw elemental power of nature, a power that threatens to overwhelm her. Only her lover, Mick, is able to calm the storm within her-even as their passion reaches unimaginable heights of ecstasy. But when an Arizona police chief's daughter is taken by a paranormal evil, they find themselves venturing where no human can survive-for only together can they overcome the greatest danger they've ever faced.

This series was actually recommended to me by another blogger and while I haven't got my hands on a copy yet, I would like too as it sounds like a good series!

Right Hand Magic - Nancy A Collins
Publisher: Roc
Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can't resist a good rental deal-even if it's in the city's strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets. Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe's fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing-and avoiding darkness is no easy trick...

I love the idea of a section of the city where the strange lives - especially centaurs who are vastly under-represented in fantasy these days.

So what are you wishing for this week?


  1. Stormwalker has been on my wish list for ages too, it looks like an amazing UF series.

  2. Street Magic sounds good and the reviews on Amazon are a mixed bag - enough to pique my interest :) I'm not very good at reading series though unless I buy them all together because I forget and move on to other books! Any tips for reading series?
