Review

"Mike R. Underwood just keeps getting better and better.  We need more urban fantasy like this."
- Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Discount Armageddon

Praise for the Ree Reyes series:
GEEKOMANCY is a glorious blender of genres, like a sweet candy shell filled with pop culture and high heroism. Absolutely stellar.
- Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Discount Armageddon
If Buffy hooked up with Doctor Who while on board the Serenity, this book would be their lovechild. In other words, GEEKOMANCY is full of epic win.
- Marie Lu, author of the Legend trilogy

If you took wish-fulfillment, ground it into a powder, and shot twice the recommended dosage into your eye socket, the result would look a lot like GEEKOMANCY. I want to live in this world, where all the books and shows and movies and games I love are a source of power, not only in psychological terms, -- which they already are -- but practical, villain-pounding ones.
- Marie Brennan, award winning author of the Onyx Court series.
Modern, sleek, and whip-smart, GEEKOMANCY is a wonderful blend of geek and pop culture -- you'll find yourself grinning knowingly at least every other page. And Ree is the perfect protagonist to navigate Geekomancy's world -- geek enough to hold her own, yet human enough for me to be deeply invested in her struggles. I can't wait to read the next one!
- Cassie Alexander, author of NIGHTSHIFTED
Underwood's Geek Fu is strong-and he's not afraid to use it. GEEKOMANCY is fun, fresh and full of geek culture references that will have you LOLing to the very last page. This book is one hundred percent pure awesomesauce and totally FTW.
- Mari Mancusi, award winning author of The Blood Coven Vampire series

I have to say I really enjoy the world the author has build for us in the first book Geekomancy and this one does build on that lore while continuing much of the snarky commentary that made the first one so enjoyable for this geek. I will say I wasn't a fan of the overly heavy focus on the romantic side of the story in this book which is why I didn't give it five stars. I much prefered the more subdued romance undertones of the first book particularly when it's pretty clear that the romance was not going to be a lasting one.

Overall though it's another fun romp through a well thought out world of fun.

Very much improved from the first novel.

Pros:
1. book is cheap.
2. doing some interesting world building.
3. It was interesting, I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened.
4. I Enjoyed the book. It was fun.

Cons:
1. It's a book written by a man and there is women on women "sexy times". Nothing wrong with the LGBTQ Community, just felt out of place and didn't flow. Just felt like a guys fantasy instead of "reality"
2.still is missing the real flow or natural development of the characters. I felt like there was going to be a surprise or reveal at the end, but it was obvious and expected, which in itself not bad, although I felt like it was going to be something unique, or exciting, but it was just the same old story.
3. If you look at this as stand-alone. You needed to talk a little bit more about Eastwood.

Notes:
1. Much better than the first one! leaps and bounds better.
2. didn't talk about how the magic works, It just does. I didn't feel so confused on the details like "why is this happening? How can she do that? or this doesn't make any sense.:"
3. Much better edit. not a lot of holes or random rabbit trails to nowhere.
4. I would have liked more. I liked the dad character, but he was not really in this one much. I really missed Eastwood, but I have a feeling its a set up for the 3rd book, which makes me really excited.

Like I said in my review for Geekomancy. I look forward to continuing to read this author. I can see he is getting better, and has good ideas. This is going to be a really good writer! Keep up the great work!

I keep restarting this review because I just can't figure out a way to explain how much I liked Celebromancy. I was a fan of the first book in the series and expected more geeky, fanboy magical fun but I wasn't prepared for how awesome the second Ree Reyes books would be.

Rather than just doing more of the same in Celebromancy, Michael Underwood dives into an entirely new branch of magic; one that investigates and explains America's obsession with fame and celebrity. This book gives us a sense of a greater world beyond the Geekomancy universe we've experience so far and promises many more exciting adventures to come.

Plus there's a dragon, I mean come on, a dragon...and Buffy references...and the roadie run and Spider-Man powers and...well I could go on and on.

If you're a fan of fiction, celebrity, movies, fantasy or fiction make sure you pick this book up (along with the first in the series).

Oh and there's a love rhombus...how awesome is that?

Celebromancy, the sequel to Geekomany captures the spirit of Los Angeles and celebrity culture and uses the rules of Underwood's urban fantasy world to explain a part of our obsession with fame in his terms.

This book is as thoroughly geeky as the original, and just a tad more glamorous. I managed to pick up the universe easily, without having to immediately re-read Geekomancy first.

Michael Underwood writes strong women and to my delight, some steamy scenes as well. This was a most excellent second romp in the world of Ree Reyes.

I am a huge geek. Thankfully I was born into the correct era. I mention this because being a giant geek places me squarely in the target audience for the Geekomancy series. The quips, the references, and the thrilling heroics are right in my wheelhouse. keep 'em coming Mr. Underwood.

Geekomancy was a fresh 'urban fantasy' universe to explore - and Celebromancy picks right up where Geekomancy left off... But it's only an OK tale, with a nice addition of 'Celebrity Magic'. My main complaint is that the story loses track of its self at points, switching in and out of scenes at breakneck pace and leaving you wondering what happened to the monsters they were just fighting??

Overall, worth reading, but it needs a sense of balance...

This is the second book in the Geekomancer series where obsessing over pop culture gives you power instead of making you a social pariah. This time the exceptional Ms Reyes is living her dream as a screenwriter on a film staring her childhood crush, when she discovers that the old Hollywood magic is more than an apt turn of phrase. Battling evil bloggers and non-ageing screen queens for whom trolling is more literal than it has any right to be, can a gamer girl save her leading lady? Of course. The geek references alone would make this worth reading but the story rocks too!
