Clerks meets Buffy the Vampire the Slayer in this original urban fantasy ebook about Geekomancers—humans that derive supernatural powers from pop culture.
Ree Reyes’s life was easier when all she had to worry about was scraping together tips from her gig as a barista and comic shop slave to pursue her ambitions as a screenwriter.
When a scruffy-looking guy storms into the shop looking for a comic like his life depends on it, Ree writes it off as just another day in the land of the geeks. Until a gigantic “BOOM!” echoes from the alley a minute later, and Ree follows the rabbit hole down into her town’s magical flip-side. Here, astral cowboy hackers fight trolls, rubber-suited werewolves, and elegant Gothic Lolita witches while wielding nostalgia-powered props.
Ree joins Eastwood (aka Scruffy Guy), investigating a mysterious string of teen suicides as she tries to recover from her own drag-your-heart-through-jagged-glass breakup. But as she digs deeper, Ree discovers Eastwood may not be the knight-in-cardboard armor she thought. Will Ree be able to stop the suicides, save Eastwood from himself, and somehow keep her job?

I am in awe! What a superbly fabulous story! I just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy and The Hunger Games trilogy....this story engulfed me far more! I wait with bated breath for the sequel! Bravo on this being your first published novel! Ree trumps Salander and Katniss!
Great for Geeks and the LIke
What a fun and fantastic read! If you are a geek you will love this novel and really relate to the hilarity! Though I think that non-geeks would also enjoy it as well, as you don't *need* to be seeped in geek culture to appreciate the humour. Also, I adore that the main character is female! Heck yeah!!! I hope to be seeing a lot more to come from Mr. Underwood!!!
