URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Hexomancy - Michael R Underwood

Release Date: 14/09/15
Publisher:  Pocket Books


Fan-favorite urban fantasista Ree Reyes and her crew of Geekomancers—humans that derive supernatural powers from pop culture—take on their biggest foes yet in this fourth book of the Geekomancy series.

When Ree’s long time nemesis Lucretia is finally brought to trial and found guilty for the deadly attack on Grognard’s, the Geekomancer community breathes a collective sigh of relief. But Ree and her crew soon discover that Lucretia has three very angry, very dangerous sisters who won’t rest until Eastwood—a fellow Geekomancer—is killed.

What follows is an adventure packed with epic battles, a bit of romance, and enough geeky W00t moments to fill your monthly quota of adventure and fun.


To be honest a book I wasn’t sure on when I started as to be honest I thought that it felt as if it were just casing in on mixing the essence of geekiness into a lazy, hazy pot and dolloping in a percentage of story just to help fill it out. What occurred within however dissuaded me of that opinion as I found that the more I read, the more engrossed that I became.

Overall what really shines with this book is the characters, both supporting and main as they bring together an unseen world that hides within our own. It’s fun, it’s definitely quirky and when the author throws in a dark evil that seeks to overturn the world in their own way, generates a tale that I found thoroughly enjoyable.

Finally add to this a twist or two that you don’t see coming as well as growth for characters that helped make them more human (as well as identifiable,) all round makes this a series that I’m going to have to read the earlier releases for. Magic.
