Gamer. Nerd. Sorceress.
This is the omnibus of the first three books in the bestselling Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series by Annie Bellet, collected together for the first time in one convenient volume. Fans of The Dresden Files and The Iron Druid Chronicles will enjoy this series.
Book One- Justice Calling:
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.
Book Two- Murder of Crows:
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.
Book Three- Pack of Lies:
Let sleeping dogs lie. Wolves, on the other hand…
Recovering from a broken heart and coming to terms with her family history, all sorceress Jade Crow wants is to resume running her comic book store and gaming with her friends. With a town full of strange wolf shifters, a hundred-and-fifty-year-old peace accord hanging in the balance, and the Justice who broke her heart back in her life, Jade’s plans go out the proverbial window.
Wolves are killing wolves, innocent human lives are caught in the crossfire, and not everyone in town is who they appear to be. As the bodies stack up and the doubts build, Jade and her friends race to find the true killer.
And then Jade’s evil ex-lover makes another move…

Like a Good Popcorn Flick
I very much enjoyed reading these three books. I read the first as it was free and then bought the three-in-one because it was something I’d want to read again and wanted more. These are like a good popcorn flick, the kind you come back to again when you know you’ll be entertained. Though there are some oddities of syntax (and outright sentence errors in formatting), I still rated the books as 5 Stars because they were very enjoyable, didn’t try to be overly clever and smart, and did their own thing, if you will, not shying away from being a good read as well as giving a fan of fantasy and pop culture what they want. If the fans like your movie or book, give them more! I enjoyed them and will buy each one as they come. I’m sure I’ll read them again on those rainy Saturdays and long summer days in a hammock. Worth it over and over.
Love the three books - looking forward to seeing the series continue ...
The first three books in this series are included here, which is nice! The story is enjoyable, the plot is unique and the characters are complex and make you root for them. I would have given five stars but for the many errors in syntax and just plain awkward sentence structure, which were noticeable enough to pull me out of the story... Otherwise, a great series in this genre!
