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.

Murder of Crows is the second book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

I loved the first novella in this series (Justice Calling) and, happily, there isn’t anything about this novella that I don’t LOVE either!!!

The main character, Jade Crow, is an intelligent, funny, independent woman with a big heart who I just fell in love with; exactly what I want in a female lead. I feel that the supporting cast in this novella, both good & bad, were just as well written; with depth of character and completely believable. Quite a skill to achieve in a book of this small size!

I found the plot gripping; the murder mystery, Jade’s ex-boyfriend threat & the relationship development with Alek, all arcs progressing at a pace that felt both breathless but believable.

I was on the edge of my seat; I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed.
