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.

Great start to a promising series . The promise of entrapment is high for unstopable reading is high. Please excuse me as I dive into book 2

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.

This story is a great escape. It has lots of mystery, engaging characters and a plot that moves smoothly.

I confess, I started reading this book and was entranced by the absolutely awful pacing of the character development and plot revals - within the space of pages the story goes from a gaming shop to magical wards to shapeshifters to evil ex-boyfriends to leprechauns, and I couldn't beleive the expositonal whiplash that was exploding before my eyes. Then, an odd thing happened and I got hooked on the story, and couldn't stop reading. By the end of the week I had read the entire series, and am eagerly awaiting the next one. Something about the characters shone through the rough start to make for an interesting adventure story, and I'm happy to say that the pacing issues smooth out over time and the stories become more interesting. Sure, the main character is a bit OP and Mary-Sue-ish, andher romance interest is a bit too stoic and manly, but ultimately they're just so lovable and the series becomes so self-aware that I can't help but love it despite myself. If you like slightly-mindless urban fantasy adventures with a sprinkling of gaming references and oddball half-archetypal characters, you'll love this series, and they get btter as they go :)

Great book for those who are a fan of magic and the various types that use or are magic. The nerd touch is amazing. I can totally see a few phrases being lost by the non nerds which makes it even better. We are legion.

This is an enjoyable story. Halfway through I bought the rest of the series, knowing that I would read them all. Like a lot of urban fantasy stories it's shorter with all the basics covered but the nerd/gamer part's fun! Silly things I relate to . It's free...give it a try.

I love this series. It takes a unique perspective thick with nerd culture and is very well written. My only gripe is that the books are very short for my taste. They do get slightly longer as the series goes on, but most books I usually read are 300+ pages so 130 still doesn't really impress me. Still, the first 3 were very reasonable and so far, I've gotten the first 5 books, about 530 pages for $10 which is about what I pay for some of those larger books.

The basis of the story was good, although the characters didn't make sense, all the characters were stated to be gamers, yet there was one character who was a teacher at a college? There wasn't enough history and information on the characters to make sense of what was going on. And as far as the attraction between the main character and the enforcer of the book, there was no information as to what prompted those feelings, there wasn't enough of a physical description of the enforcer to warrant an attraction to the main character. A good read that just needs more explaining and descriptions, has potential to be a very good series.

An excellent discovery! I'm really happy to finally have decided to read this book that was in my pile for so long and i do regret not having the second one ready. Jade is a sorceress in hiding....because that's not the kind of magic with the best reputation to start with but also because someone wants to kill her more than anything. To do so she decided to play in plain sight by living in a place surrounded by shifters of all kind, some covens, and other paranormal, even if they think she is a simple witch she is happy there running a shop about comic and roleplaying game. I must say that the fact she was loving roleplaying game and making allusion to it made this story even funnier for me. I mean imagine a real sorceress, with the power to throw real fireball, playing a simple mage in a virtual game... too funny and at the same i could envision it too well. She is a fighter though and i was intrigued by her Wolf sprit ( oki i start to wonder why she is called Wolf by the way but that i will keep a surprise for you), she speak her mind and bloodlust has funny effect on her ^^;; Justice, or Alek since Justice is a title, is a shifter, a tiger shifter to be more precise. Yes a feline one which isn't surprising since he is kind of a head security ( and judge and jury) and from several books it seems a trend than paranoïd, a bit close minded ( or at least fully bent to one objective and obtuse about the rest) shifter must be feline one. I did like him, really. The others gamers, shifters of all kind ( fox, wolverine etc) are funny. Harper especially, she is acting so young. The plot isn't fully new but it's well written and i took pleasure following Jade trying to help and hide at the same time. The magic we see at use is mostly bad, really dark while hers which should be , if we follow what the people think, is in fact a lot more natural and can be used for good. It's not a long novel but one that i do recommend if you want a good urban fantasy ( with a touch of roleplaying game)
