And the moral of this reread is: the color of delicious vengeance? Why it’s purple. Obviously.

Okay, that’s not exactly what I had in mind, but hey, whatever floats your boat and stuff.

P.S. Looks like we’re not in bloody shrimping Kansas anymore, Toto. Ha. (view spoiler)

Yayyy, such an amazing series!
I will only write one review for all the books (sorry for my laziness, but ah well).

Where should I start?

Ok, so what I liked the most about these books was that they were all so fast-paced. There were no unnecessary actions, no useless side-plots, no extra pampering of any sorts. They were all so easy to read, it was impossible to put any of them down. I just couldn't stop 'til I finished the story, see the mystery sol

Slower paced than the previous

I swear to all things literary, can someone please spell and grammar check these bleeping books! One book fine, three books annoying, five books in and fire the publisher!
Ok rant over (until the next book probably!).
The story was slower to build than the previous, and then all hell broke loose in the last 15%ish. The EPIC fight scene was also over in a flash.
Onto the next we go...

A fun read, but WAAAAY too short. The page count listed is nowhere close to accurate, it's not 222 pages, it's more like 120 pages if that.

Everything seemed a bit rushed:
From Jade's training with her father, her reunion with her friends, finding and developing a plan to take on Samir, even the fight with Samir, it was all too brief. I would have liked to have seen a lot more exposition and some of the supernatural community that ostracized Jade to maybe come around and realize she's not the bad

Another greet one

Sort of anticlimactic with the many books of build up to killing Simar but I’m guessing maybe his story isn’t over. Reading the next one now so hopefully the steam keeps a rollin along.

I am going to rate the The Twenty-Sided Sorceress series as a whole rather then as individual books.

Jade Crow is a Native American woman and Sorceress with the worst ex-boyfriend on the planet. After running away from him, she and her band of merry shifter's battle it out to defeat her Sorcerer ex.

I have thus far enjoyed the series, they are fun quick reads. They don't have the depth of Illona Andrews's Kate Daniels series but they are written in a similar vein. Geeks and gamers will have fun

This review is for the series so far: Fun popcorn read. Not quite as good as either Mercy Thompson or Jane Yellowrock, but better than True Blood. The thing I appreciate most about the series is that the long-lived sorceress (currently in her late 40's), and longer-lived were (in his 60's) are actually written like adults who don't subscribe to the "OMG he loves me/he loves me not" trope. They meet, lust, start dating, fall in love, and WORK THINGS OUT between them when the fight. Yaknow, like a ...more

The book I have been waiting for, the final fight. And yes, it was good, but I had to steel myself as I thought it would be the last book in the series and I really like Jade Crow. However I found out that there is at least one more book to look forward to and I hope there will be more.

Bellet continues her new tactic of adding secondary character points of view in chapters to supplement the main character's point of view. It continues to help the story since for the first part of the story, the characters are all still separated and there's no way for the reader to truly know what's going on without their input. his is useful when everyone is split up, but I still maintain that she should have started this technique much sooner than starting this in the 6th book in the series. ...more

Finally, I have arrived! Not only because I've been re-reading the whole series now when I got my hands on this book, but also because it's been such a long wait. It's been frustrating seeing the book around on Kindle and such, but not on Audible, I'll admit, but oh well. Here we are!

So, what did I finally think of the book?
Well, it was a lot like the two previous books. Not really with any other plot than beating Samir, and Jade running around doing a lot of damage-control.

This is a review for both 6: Thicker Than Blood and 7: Magic to the Bone. It looks like the last 3 books (5, 6, and 7) need to be one book. The ending for 6 is better than 5, but still a cliffhanger. There is LOTS of repetitive angst on the main character's part (Yes, we know you are not sure you can stop/kill the bad guy. Yes, we know you are worried about your friends dying. Yes, we know you feel responsible for every death that has already happened. We do NOT need to remind us every couple of ...more
4 Stars... I really enjoyed this read, but it was way too short... I wanted more, more, more... This is truly a fascinating story and the depth the author could take the storyline as well as the characters is profound... Sometimes I feel a bit cheated as a reader because I feel like I am missing that edge that can come with truly exploring this story... However, all that being said, I still enjoyed this read... We find Jade finally exploring the depths of her abilities and learning of her powerf ...more

Conclusion *** Spoiler alert***

This was a very good conclusion to the Samir chapter for Jade.
It was well written and executed.
I had trouble with the 2 previous books because I felt the fifth and sixth should have been a single book, but this one brought the story to an end very well.
Getting to the final battle wasn’t easy, just like in a video game, the hero had to rethink her philosophy, acquire tools and partners.
I feel there is a loose end though, with the single drop of “dragon” blood left

Wow, the boss fight. We finally get there and's over and seems like it was just a small ring of a triangle. I believe this was because it felt rushed. The reason for this I do not know. However, I do not feel that I have wasted any of my time with this series. In hindsight, I can say I would have liked to seen more depth in Alex's character for I felt that only the surface was touched about him. Not to mention about the Justice's as well.

Overall, I enjoyed this story arc and I hope th

Boss battle mark 2 most definately is the theme for this one. I do love that now the book really has taken on the telling two stories at once. Jade's friends are not just side characters to come in when it is convenient they are doing their own thing. I am glad that was kept in this book. The ending was interesting and I am slightly curious as to how the undercurrent will play out. I know that if this is in gamer style the information given will be useful in the future.

Okay so I'm kind of glad I read all the installments up to this point in one go. It definitely makes the story feel less broken down into smaller pieces. That said I haven't really felt the shortness of the installments until this one. The epic showdown looms large in this one but I didn't feel all that satisfied by it. Everything happens so fast that I feel like I blinked and I missed what happened and then the installment was over. I still love the characters and the world but I wish there was ...more

Was a great final in learning more of Jade's abilities and more on her in general. Most of the book deals with her learning and recouping from the last fight with Samir. She definitely grows as a person in this book. We also get to meet another character who could became another addition to the group.
Overall, great story and book. Highly recommend for those who have liked the story this far.

Somebody else observed that these stories are novellas masquerading as novels. Although I enjoyed this "quickie" I do agree with that assessment. There was so much more that could have been explored - even though the ending was as expected. A couple more chapters would have gone a long way in the form of clarification. Ah, well, 7 down 1 to go.

Annie Bellet tells a really fun story of coming to terms with loss and betrayal and making yourself into something better than you could have been.

Jade has to learn from her past mistakes in order to get revenge once and for all against her evil ex boyfriend who's followed in her wake for years wrecking most of what she's held dear.

I really, really liked this series. It has great characters, a good storyline and a very nice conclusion. Now I learnt that there is more to come, however. Let's see how that goes. I'm fairly content to leave them here at the end of book 7 but willing to let Mrs Bellet surprise me.

Another really fun read. I did feel like the climax was rushed and a little too easy, especially because it was also the climax to the major story arc from the seven books. But, as always, I really enjoyed this story.

Great series so far. Reads more like a tv series where each book has there own little problem and then it’s fixed at the end of the book. It wasn’t until book 7 were the major overlying issue is resolved.

This book was fantastic!!!! It had moments where it was suspenseful and very tense. Couple twists and turns like the rest of the books had me on the edge of me seat and hard to but down.. great ending!!!!

So finally we have the fight with Samir and it's really a let down. The story was shorter and felt kind of rushed. I like it and I love Jade and her friends, but I felt like we had been building to something a little more awesome. Still will read any more that come out in the series!

It was a good book. Overall I liked it. I didn't liked it that two of the main characters left with no say on when they would be back. I also didn't like that Jade didn't tell her friends the complete truth.

Not bad.

I think this book could have been edited better. I kept finding things that didn't seem right. Missing words or poor grammar were some of the errors I noticed. Otherwise it was a good story.
