Now this was an interesting story. I’m having such good luck with paranormal/urban fantasy mysteries at the moment.
I loved our main character, Jade Crow. She’s fun, sassy, and hiding one hell of a secret. Her shapeshifting friends promise to be quite interesting if the author can flesh them out a bit more in future books.
The mystery itself was different than what I had imagined, and it just sucked me in and didn’t let me go until the end. A great fast paced, action packed read.

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 USA Today Bestselling (Sept 2015) The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series. Readers who enjoyed The Dresden Files or The Iron Druid Chronicles will likely enjoy this series.
