Love is for losers.

Jack doesn’t care about anything except music. All she wants to do is find a decent gig, stand by the speakers and let the bass roll through her. It’s the only reason she gets out of bed.

Until she meets Winta. In the space of a second, everything is different. Winta knows what she wants and for one night, what she wants is Jack. It feels like the start of forever.

Then Winta disappears and Jack faces a choice: should she go back to her life, or track down the only girl who can change it beyond recognition?

One things’ certain: Jack has no idea what she’s getting herself into.


I received an eARC of this book from the author (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinions in any way.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I have no idea how to start this review because my brain refuses to function without having read the first book in this series. But I shall try anyway.

Killian’s Dead is the prequel to Josie Jaffrey’s new urban fantasy series, Seekers. This follows Jack, an 18-year-old music junkie, as she crosses paths with the gorgeous Winta, and they share a wonderful nightwhich might be the beginning of a budding romance. Or at least that’s what Jack thinks. Then things take a shocking turn when Winta suddenly disappears, leaving a wounded Jack behind. She now has to decide whether to forget their one night in paradise or find out what really happened to Winta, unwittingly finding out more than what she’s bargained for.
