Publisher's Summary

"Life-changing moments are sneaky little bastards. Often we don't even know that nothing will be the same until long after, only in hindsight can we look and say 'There! That was it! That changed everything.' At least we could, if we're alive to do it."

Gamer and sorceress Jade Crow's psychotic ex-boyfriend, Samir, shows up for an epic showdown, and nothing in Wylde will ever be the same. 

Heartache is the fifth book in the USA Today best-selling Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

Thrilling

Captivates and excites you..Great performance, too. I can't wait for the next one. These keep you tied in for the roller coaster then drop off until the next episode, leaving you anxious to hear more.

Warning: CLIFFHANGER, but worth it.

This is a series you should plan to read in order, and in its entirety. One book flows into the next, and they're good stories, but some end in minor cliffhangers. This one ends in the middle of a battle. It's entertaining, but keep that in mind so you won't be disappointed.

Very well written, but a Clifhanger ending!! NO!

I could not even begin to figure out how the ending was going to play out, then left hanging. Damn Lady that was not fair, but I do own the next book so I will see what happens next!!

Heartache, Desperation and Frustration, oh my!

I'm already a fan of Annie's writing style and this urban fantasy series. Heartache is the 5th book and aptly titled. I should stress that the books in this series need to be read in order to understand the plotline.

I downloaded the narration by Folly Blaine for my Kindle. However, I ended up listening to most of the story through Audible rather than reading it. I like the way Folly reads the narrative, it's good. The story is told from Jade Crow's perspective and Folly's performance mirrors our protagonist's personality. However, Folly has a very limited number of accents or voices. Many of the characters sounded the same, making scenes with more dialogue than narrative harder to follow.

The plot in this book felt less full of hope and lighter moments. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the tension of waiting for Samir to strike or the feeling of "out of the frying pan and into the fire." Plus of course Annie is really good at writing dynamic fight scenes, especially those with magic. I was definitely holding my breath a lot. However, I missed being uplifted. Plus it ends on a rather depressing cliffhanger which is why I've sulkily rated Heartache 4-stars not 5. However, there are still geeky references and nerdish quotes sprinkled throughout this book that warmed my heart and put a smile on my face.
