Justice Calling

Justice Calling (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress Book 1) - Annie Bellet

(I read this book as part of the Nine By Night set, which I got on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Since I'm not going to read all nine books in one go, I'm posting short reviews separately.)

Too short to allow for much character development. The story goes fast, but remains very formulaic—down to the hardened guy showing up to provide a love interest that Jade immediately starts fantasising about for... no reason? I'd have much preferred getting to know the characters better, and see a couple of actual twists and turns. As it is, the "villain" was dispatched too quickly, the promising plot wasn't exciting, and Jade was just... annoying.

Mostly I read it because I needed to do something while waiting at the airport. I don't think I'll be back.
