Editorial Reviews


"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 )

"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 )

"First and foremost, these books are FUN! Michael Underwood wears his geek cred on his sleeve, much like Ernest Cline who wrote Ready Player One and Armada." (The Fragile Muse)

"Magic in geekery, mysticism in celebrities, the Ree Reyes series by Mike Underwood is a celebration of everything that makes being a geek cool. Can't wait to read what he has in store next." (Stephen Blackmoore, author of Dead Things )

"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 )

"Looking for a good book? If you consider yourself a geek or enjoy geeky pop culture, you are bound to enjoy Geekomancy." ( on Geekomancy)

Geekomancy centers around early twenty-something geek girl Ree Reyes, a barista at a coffee & comic shop with dreams of being a screenwriter who stumbles into a world of magic just behind everyday reality she never knew existed.

If the premise sounds terribly cliche for urban fantasy that's because to some extent it is. The originality comes from the world and magic themselves. The "sorcerers" per se here wield collectibles powers fueled by fandom and nostalgia. This is a love letter to geek culture and makes clever use of it's absurd premise through copious amounts of pop culture references.

Unfortunately the references are a bit too copious. I enjoyed this overall, and am a diehard geek that caught a very high percentage of what was thrown at me in this novel. But it was too much even for me at times. The author is too in love with the concept and the references, to the point where the actual story routinely gets bogged down by overly wordy descriptions of tangential details. There are lots of little things, like the D&D stats next to everyone's name when they are introduced, that don't lead anywhere and aren't quite as amusing or clever as intended.

Ree herself works against the narrative sometimes as well. She's the "perfect" geek girl in every way, and.. well "fetish" characteristics for lack of better words are given to her for apparently no other reason than to increase her appeal and then promptly forgotten. It's pointedly mentioned when she's introduced that she wears thick glasses and is legally blind without them. They are NEVER mentioned again. Not even to have her put in contact lenses.

Ree Reyes is a struggling screenwriter that is biding her time by working as a barista at Café Xombie. It's not a bad gig, and she loves the people, but life could be a little more exciting. Be careful what you wish for, because when Eastwood comes into her life, nothing will be the same. She manages to witness him fighting otherworld baddies in the alley outside the shop and is sucked into a world of all kinds of supernatural oddities. After overcoming her initial disbelief, Ree is asked to help him in his inquiries into recent teen suicides. Full on, geeky mayhem ensues.

I have to admit, while the author was setting up his magic system, and we were getting to know Ree, the near constant pop culture and "geek" references were distracting to me. They come hard, fast, and often. However, as I got into the flow of the book, and let myself go with said flow, I really had a quite a bit of fun with this one. The brand of magic (genre magic) used here is tons of fun. His characters can pick up magic abilities by watching moves or shows on whatever subject they need to use magic in conjunction with. Also, reading can do the same thing. For example, when Ree needs help with sleuthing, she watches Sherlock Holmes. With genre emulation, the more emotional attachment you have to the material, the more you get out of it. As Ree follows Eastwood, she meets all sorts of interesting folks, including some Geekomancers that give them a run for their money, Drake Winters, a displaced steampunk super hero, Furrymancers, and gnomes (probably not like you're picturing.) She also discovers that Eastwood might not be quite what he seems.

Can Ree stop the suicides? Will she manage to keep her job at Café Xombi amidst all the mayhem? Will she ever write that screenplay?

This is a book for all true geeks. Crossing between Star Wars and comic books and Sherlock Holmes and every conceivable cool (pronounced geek) icon in between it's just a fun popcorn blast of a read. I challenge those who think their Geek-fu is mighty to catch every reference and trope in this book. The Closest thing I can compare this too would be Ernest Cline's Brilliant Ready Player One.
Not for literary snobs, this book is just about having fun with our beloved geek culture. Team Unicorn would approve.

Originally posted at Bibliophilia, Please [...].

This book got me at the title. Geekomancy. Who wouldn't at least read the excerpt of a book which such a cool title? And that's just the tip of a can of awesome that doesn't stop until the last page.

In it, we follow the story of Ree, Rhiannon Anna Maria Reyes, as she stumbles/jumps into the rabbit whole and lands in a world full of geekyness. A world where all the fantasy books, memorabilia, props and toys have power. Power fueled by nostalgia and the love the fans provide to make them come to life. Like I said: Awesome.

Ree's introduction to this world comes at the hand of Eastwood (who I liked in the beginning, highly disliked in the middle, and ended up kind of liking again by the end [good writing right there]) and a troll, dead due to high levels of lightsaber to the kneecaps. And then it just got better.

The first two chapters are a bit slow, because they introduce us to Ree and the cast of friends, all described in D&D terms (Ree: Strength 10, Dexterity 14, Stamina 12, Will 17, IQ 16, and Charisma 15 - Geek 7 / Barista 3 / Screenwriter 2 / Gamer Girl 2). Each of the characters that play a role in the story gets introduced like this. And that's just a sample of all the geek in the book.

It's full of quotes, call backs, Serenity, Buffy, Superman, comics, werewolves, Jedi, coffee, drinking, evil dudes, a demon lord, monsters, a Victorian adventurer (who is great by the way), and so on and so on and so on... And so on.

It's very hard for me right now not to turn the Squee on and start babbling about how much I loved the book. Despite the fact that at least half of the geek references in it went over my head, I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
