After just finishing A Promise of Fire and trying to hold off on book 2 of the Kingmaker Chronicles until we’re closer to book 3’s release date, I turned to a more complete series to help pass the time. The Twenty Sided Sorceress series is on book 8 (Dungeon Crawl, which is brand new) and still going.
I’ve only read the first three books of this series to date, but so far I like them. The series is urban fantasy, which I always kind of sneered at for some inexplicable reason before reading Justice Calling (book 1 of this series) and discovering that I liked it.
Jade Crow is a sorceress who channels her magic through Dungeon and Dragons spells. Her magic technically doesn’t have any limits, but she’s still figuring out how to use them. Or, more accurately, she is repressing them as hard as she can because her ex-lover, another sorcerer, is trying to find her and eat her heart because that’s how sorcerers get more power. And you thought your love life was bad.
I waited a long time after reading book one to read book two, but the important points came back quickly. I’m still a little fuzzy on some of book one’s details, but I could follow along with book two and three no problem. With that being said, this is a series you’re going to want to read in order. And also, this is a series you’re going to want to read.
