Celebromancy: Ree Reyes, Book 2 | [Michael R. Underwood]

Celebromancy: Ree Reyes, Book 2

Things are looking up for urban fantasista Ree Reyes. She’s using her love of pop culture to fight monsters and protect her hometown as a Geekomancer, and now a real-live production company is shooting her television pilot script.

But nothing is easy in show business. When an invisible figure attacks the leading lady of the show, former child-star-turned-current-hot-mess Jane Konrad, Ree begins a school-of-hard-knocks education in the power of Celebromancy. Attempting to help Jane Geekomancy-style with Jedi mind tricks and X-Men infiltration techniques, Ree learns more about movie magic than she ever intended.

Publisher's Summary

Fame has a magic all its own in the no-gossip-barred follow-up to Geekomancy. Ree Reyes gets her big screenwriting break, only to discover just how broken Hollywood actually is.

Attempting to help Jane Geekomancy-style with Jedi mind tricks and X-Men infiltration techniques, Ree learns more about movie magic than she ever intended. She also learns that real life has the craziest plots: not only must she lift a Hollywood-strength curse, but she needs to save her pilot, negotiate a bizarre love rhombus, and fight monsters straight out of the silver screen. All this without anyone getting killed or, worse, banished to the D-List.

    "Michael Underwood ups his game in Celebromancy"

    Mr. Underwood's Geekomancy, book 1 in the Ree Reyes urban fantasy series, was a fun romp into Geekoland with some great characters and a good storyline. He takes that a step further with Celebromancy; his writing was good but now it's even better. His dialog is crisper, action more visceral and storyline more cohesive. Mr. Underwood's sophomore novel has taken a good start and improved it significantly. There are a couple of caveats when it comes to the content of Celebromancy: while it's good to see change, we went from Ree having relationships while focused on the many aspects of her life to a focus on Relationship. That shift felt fairly abrupt; the abruptness then took on a feeling of being fairly contrived to make politically correct points. I also thought that the end had a bit of over-aggrandizement of the celebromancy powers, but that's a nit. Overall, Celebromancy is a fun book that continues to incorporate the current cultural geek milieu into great lines and interesting powers.

    Mary Robinette Kowal (a Hugo-award winning writer herself) did a fabulous job narrating the Audible version of the story. I flipped between the Kindle and the Audible version. It was a delight to be able to use Whispersync (about which more here, if interested) to jump between my Kindle version and the Audible recording without back tracking or losing my spot.

    Story
    "Thank the gods they changed narrator!"

    If you've listened to the first book, and managed to get through the HORRIBLE reading, then try this, the narrator is leagues ahead of that reader, and makes the book interesting

    The story itself is a little jumbled at times, it tries to explain the celebrities and how they live off of their fans "power", turning it into a magical element, which in some cases makes sense - how do some of them stay so young for so long? It's GOT to be magic, right?

    Overall, quite a good story, a decent reading, and takes the story of Ree on a little further, and in its way a sideways look at certain bits of society use magic without the general population realising it's anything but magic

    If you're into geek culture, and are a real geek, not a fake one ("look, I wear glasses, so I'm a geek"), then this will raise some smiles, but if you're not a geek then most of this will whoosh over your head so fast that you'll be lost in 95% of the book!
