Murder of Crows (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress #2) By: Annie Bellet
They say you can never go home again. If only that were true… Game store owner and nerd sorceress extraordinaire Jade Crow knows death stalks her in the form of her murderous ex-lover, Samir, a sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her power. With the help of her friends, and sexy tiger-shifter Alek, Jade trains for the inevitable confrontation. Until her estranged father shows up begging for help. Someone or something is murdering the crow shifters of Three Feathers ranch and her father believes sorcery is the only way to stop the killings. Faced with an unknown foe, a family that exiled her decades before, a deepening relationship with Alek, and Samir’s ever-present threat, Jade will need all the power she’s gained and then some to stop the Murder of Crows.
We learned more about Jade’s biological family in this book. They leave a lot to be desired. She was raised in a cult, basically, which is interesting and sad. She also found out she’s got a younger sister and the man she thought was her father is not. So lots happened in this book.
Really loving this series and all the geeky references, it feels like it was written specifically for me, because of them. The pacing was great, never a dull moment, but I didn’t feel like there was too much going on. Can’t wait to read the next one.
