Devils & Thieves
BY Jennifer Rush
Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called "kindled," and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn't help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe, the dangerous and enigmatic leader of the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.
When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor begins spreading that someone is practicing forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all.

"I finished this novel in one sitting because the pacing was incredibly fast and Rush was able to unravel the plot in a very intriguing way. The plot was fascinating and left me with a hangover in preparation for the next novel in this paranormal series."

"Does this book sound kickbutt? It really was. I love stories that are set in modern contemporary times, but involve magic. There is something about this type of supernatural/paranormal story that appeals to me. Throw in a motorcycle club, and I'm sold."

"I was in such a reading slump before I picked Devils & Thieves up, but once I started, I could not stop. It was so addicting. It was like I was charmed to keep reading. The plot and romance really kept me flipping the pages faster than I've read any other book this year."
