Justice Calling (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress #1) By: Annie Bellet
Gamer. Nerd. Sorceress. Jade Crow lives a quiet life running her comic book and game store in Wylde, Idaho. After twenty-five years fleeing from a powerful sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her powers, quiet suits her just fine. Surrounded by friends who are even less human than she is, Jade figures she’s finally safe. As long as she doesn’t use her magic. When dark powers threaten her friends’ lives, a sexy shape-shifter enforcer shows up. He’s the shifter world’s judge, jury, and executioner rolled into one, and he thinks Jade is to blame. To clear her name, save her friends, and stop the villain, she’ll have to use her wits… and her sorceress powers. Except Jade knows that as soon as she does, a far deadlier nemesis awaits.
I love discovering new, awesome series. There were so many geek culture references in this book it appealed to me on a whole new level. I’ve never played D&D but I never felt lost or talked down to, so a complete knowledge of geek isn’t required.
So happy to have found this series. The characters are great and the world is interesting. I can definitely see some Ilona Andrews being channeled in this series. There’s a huge evil that has been hinted at but hasn’t made an appearance. Kate Daniels anyone?
The pacing is fast but you never feel overwhelmed and I’m so excited to read more.
