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.

    "Level Up"

    I had a fun enough time with Bellet's first novelette in this series -- the characters were amusing and Folly Blaine's narration was delightful -- so I listened to this short book in between some other long and more complicated novels.

    As a result, I had a surprisingly good time with this one. Bellet did a very solid job of upping the stakes this time out. Jade is in a happy romantic relationship and is gaming with her friends. She's expecting the bad times to come, and when an estranged family member shows up, Jade faces it all with determination. The stakes are upped this time out, and the emotional weight and the fallout exacts a certain strain on the characters and their relationships with each other. In the previous volume, Jade and company seemed to get along a little too well. By the end of this book, that familiar comfort has been replaced with uncertainty and conflict, and I found myself ready to queue up the next one. (WHEN DOES IT COME OUT?!?!)

    Folly Blaine continues to captivate, hitting all the right notes between romance, humor, adventure, and horror. She's the perfect narrator for this series, and a big part of the reason I'm ready for the third installment.

    This isn't a complicated urban fantasy that subverts all the tropes of the genre. Instead, it's just an awful lot of fun and easy listening, and I'm looking forward to more.

    "Perfectly Serviceable Urban Fantasy"

    Likeable main character. Love that there's only light romance and plenty of swearing. Good humored. Short. It's just not doing anything terribly unexpected or surprising.

    "Good overall"

    I found this book to be an easy read. It flowed well. I liked the call back to D&D and the snippets that were thrown in. As a former player myself I appreciated the knowledge that was apparent from the author. The story line was deep enough to keep me interested. When I finished I immediately sought out the next books in the series.

    Two hitches I found was the love interest and her heritage. They were underdeveloped and a bit unbelievable but that didn't stop me from enjoying the book as a whole.

    Book two
    Another good read from this author. Great continuity of characters. Basically they acted the way I'd expect them to given what the author has provided so far. I found the development on this one a little more difficult to follow but still enjoyable. I'm glad I read it but can't say it's her strongest work. Key components were sprung on the reader and didn't quite tie in as well as I would have liked. Having said that, I'll still read the next but did find this to be a little weaker than the first.

    I found this book a little harder to get into. As her heritage was so absent from the previous book accepting how much of a role it played in her life was a little difficult for me.

    "I have fallen in love"

    While still not impressed with the narrator's attempts at accents, I enjoyed this second installment in this series thoroughly. Learning more of Jane's past only makes me more endeared to the character and the nerd references give me life. On to book 3!

    "solid second book"

    This book was definitely solid and entertaining, but not as good as the first. I did feel the end had Jade doing something supremely out of character. I am waiting until the 3rd book to decide if I am OK with it and will finish the series.

    "Pretty Amazing, I LIKED ALOT"

    Pretty interesting follow up with the second installment in the Twenty-Two Sided Sorceress series. I like how the story line is just the right length to pull you in and leave you wandering what will happen in the next book. I'm eagerly awaitng book 3. So far a really good start to the series!!
