Editorial Reviews

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... am a little bummed.

I've been looking forward to reading Celebromancy since the second I finished Underwood's first book in the series, Geekomancy. I dove in the second I downloaded it, and ended up reading it in two separate sittings (I had some books that got in the way in the middle).

Like the first book, Celebromancy is chock full of pop culture references, especially as they pertain to the geek world. It also introduces a new type of magic that surrounds celebrity culture, and several new characters as Ree is drawn into the world of Hollywood on location in the PNW when her script gets optioned for a new TV series pilot.

So why am I disappointed?

First off, the bigger-than-life character who meant so much to the plot of Geekomancy, Eastwood, is all but invisible in this book. Ree's carrying this one on her own with the supporting cast, and for the most part, they aren't very compelling. You have the Hollywood star on the decline trying to regain her fame, her longtime business partner Yancy, her bodyguard, and appearances from Grognard and Drake from book one.

Maybe it's that I'm not all that enamored with Hollywood star culture and didn't really get into the plot. But with all the characters popping in and out, a sort of love square that didn't really get resolved much, and an odd lack of chemistry between Drake and Ree this time out and I just kept having the feeling that something was missing. The engine was put together, and it seemed to be running, but there was this piece on the side you felt was supposed to go somewhere, but you weren't sure what it was.

I'm hoping we'll get back to the antagonistic/Miyagi relationship between Eastwood and Bree and her own complicated family history in the future.

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?

Under whelming. The first book was a fun read so I grave this one a shot. Unfortunately, this really gives meaning to young adult books. It's probably perfect for a teenage girl but I think an adult or any agreed make will find out disappointing. I'll spare any summary as there's a description and I'm sure other reviews cover it fully. My disappointments are a couple fold, maybe a bit off a spoiler here, that's fair warning. Turn back now if you're not interested. I mean it. Not kidding. Okay, so the first thing is the celebromancy power. It's amazingly silly and not a good addition to the world created. Unfortunately, this story mainly focuses on explaining and exploring this power. My other main disappointment concerns the seemingly forced lesbian relationship between Ree and the starlet that happens to be filming in town with the celebromancy power. It'll be too hard to explain without the other having read it so I'll leave it at this.

Anyway, I enjoyed the first book and the discovery of this world, even though some of the wise cracking got just a bit old. It's unfortunate the fun and exploration didn't carry over to this book. I'm done with this series as I think the author is having a hard time try to keeping it fresh and almost completely abandoned the world previously created.
