Overview

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.

Justice Calling is the first book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

The first volume in Bellet's Twenty-Sided Sorceress series is terrific. Lots of fascinating characters, great world-building, and zippy dialogue. I will definitely be picking up the next book, and I hope for more. Highly recommended to gamers everywhere, as well as fans of Devon Monk and Mercedes Lackey. -- lyradora

LibraryThing Book Review Meet Jade Crow, a sorceress on the run, owner of Pwned Comics and Games. Jade's friends don't know that she's sorceress and running from her ex Samir. When Justice Alek walks into Jade's shop claiming she's a murderer standing at the crossroads between life and death. Jade hasn't used much of her magic in recent years for fear that Samir will find her. Someone is harming shifters with black magic which Jade can't figure out. Will Jade's friends learn the truth? Whose behind the black magic? Your answers await you in Justice Calling. Annie Bellet has written another winner in this series. While raising questions and answering a few along the way. I love the characters and story! This book is a page turner from first to last page. Ms. Bellet's work hits the ground running and doesn't stop. I will definitely read more of this author's work in the future.

This was a good book. Paranormal mystery, with a hint of romance. Jade Crow is a sorceress who is trying to stay hidden from others of her kind by not using her magic, but she does use it to help save her friends. I like the gamer and D&D references. It was pretty realistic. I almost gave it 4 stars, but I wish the author had told us the difference between witches and sorcerers. It would have also been nice to know if there any others of her kind that she had "sensed" and stayed away from. There are some editing errors which need to be corrected, over all I think Ms Bellet is off to a good start with this series.

This was a good story. I really enjoyed it. There are a lot of references to video games, board games (Dungeons & Dragons specifically), and movie quotes. If you are not part of that subculture you may not get all of those references. They may just be a generic flavor for the protagonist's personality for you. That was actually one of the reasons I decided to give this story a try, because the name (Twenty-Sided Sorceress) caught my attention. I thought the way the references were used were creative and even funny at times. She really made it work. It started off a smidge slow but it picked up quickly and even though there wasn't a super cliff hanger I ended up grabbing both of the next books right away. I'm eagerly awaiting book 4! I will say it was a little on the short side. But the story wrapped up nicely and it was not expensive so I don't feel like I wasted my money at all. I recommend this book to anyone who is into this genre and looking for a new author.

Jade Crow is a sorceress in hiding. And doing a pretty good job of it until Justice comes calling. Calling her a murderer. To her face. But when her friends are caught in the crosshairs of a warlock, Jade must step out of the shadows to reveal her true colors. A fast and satisfying read. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Fun story, crime and mystery with an interesting touch of the supernatural. It feels a bit rushed at times, but it's a book with checking out of you like a snaky character mix.

The story was intriguing and the characters were wonderful but the page numbers in the product description are wrong. There are only half as many pages in the ebook that in the description. Page numbers from ebook to paperback should be be very similar.
