Rookie cop Kate Prospero only has one more training assignment to pass before she’s officially sworn in to Babylon Police Department. But the veteran cop in charge of the river patrol boat is a salty old guy isn’t happy about playing tour guide to a rookie and seems even less interested in real police work. But while on patrol, they stumble on to what appears to be a floating dirty magic lab. This highly combustible situation might finally be the key to these two unlikely partners finding common ground.




If you are a fan of Jaye Wells Prospero’s War series, then you
will love this novella. Fire Water is the prequel to the series and it focuses on
Kate’s life as a rookie cop.  It reveals
her desires as a child and the struggles she faced after leaving the
coven.  It portrays the prejudices that
women face when working in what is considered a man’s world.
The story started out slowly, which was not a bad thing as
it provided details as to the reason she was continually being overlooked for
promotion in the Babylon Police Department. We also came to learn how she met
her eccentric, but well-meaning neighbour Baba. 
It showed in detail how she solved her first case with the help of Captain
Martin Smiley, who was a few days away  from retirement
. This was where the story heated up in terms of excitement.
The writing was good and the descriptions were vivid. Just
thinking about that lake she had to patrol gave me the shivers. The thought of
swimming in that sludge, gross!
Overall, this was a short but fun and exciting read. If you
are new to the series get yourself copies of Dirty Magic and Cursed Moon. This
a unique and refreshing series with likeable characters and a great plot, a
must read for fans of the urban fantasy genre.
