    1. This is the third Ree Reyes novel, released 2015. Hexomancy follows up directly on the events from Attack the Geek. Full of more geeky magic, pop culture references, pizza, and some romance. :)


    2. Thanks to Netgalley, I'm able to wolf down my fix of one of the most interesting Urban Fantasies to come along in a while, and do it with a smile and well before the actual publish date. Am I squeeing? Yes, yes I am. I feel like I just got a powerup on nostalgia, just like Ree, and my geek is ON.There's nothing quite like this series. The rules are well defined, the characters are interesting, and the utter truckload of geeky nostalgia plows through me like the power of the dark side. Or is that [...]


    3. Way to close a series arc and open another one. Underwood pulled a fast one on me, it was all fun and games in the beginning then I found myself making a very ugly, sad face! This is my favorite in the series so far, cant wait for more -mancy!


    4. I enjoyed this fourth installment of the series featuring Geekomancer Ree Reyes and her merry band of social misfits. Returning are her mentor Eastwood, her boss Grognard, her crush Drake, and her girlfriends -- one of which (drama alert) is dating Drake. The story starts with a bang, pitting Ree in an online duel with Lucretia, the antagonist of the previous novella, Attack the Geek. While not required reading, I'd highly recommend reading the novella first, if not the entire series, to better [...]


    5. Hexomancy is another fantastically geek instalment in Underwood's Ree Reyes series. This book is a winning combination of witty comebacks, geeky nostalgia, swoon-worthy romantic moments and quirky characters.The book progresses as if Ree was in a series of boss battles. Each enemy that comes after Ree's mentor Eastwood, is bigger and badder than the one before. I loved the nod to Greek mythology too - the Fates aren't a trio I'd care to go up against!In addition to this interesting premise, Ree [...]


    6. **I received this book for free from (Publisher) via (NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 3.5-4*My Thoughts*Hexomancy is author Michael R. Underwood's third novel in the Ree Reyes series. Hexomancy follows up directly after the events from Attack the Geek. Ree is a Geekomancer, or, one who draws powers from Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror in order to gain her powers. She's a pret [...]


    7. In a way, the Ree Reyes books are somewhat critic-proof at this point. It's a geek's dream, an excuse to pile as much fandom into its pages as possible while still being a fun, compelling read, and what it does just works. It doesn't turn me off, it might turn off other readers, but that's fine.Hexomancy feels like a good addition to the excellent novella from about a year ago, where it follows up what happened with the massive attack and then raises the stakes. The result is a book that's maybe [...]


    8. Ree's best story yet.I said in my review of the first book (Geekomancy) that I'm squarely in the target audience of these books, and that hasn't changed. Geek-culture-focused magic stories couldn't be better suited to my taste. That said, these books just keep getting better. Their progression puts me in mind of the Dresden Files. Book 1 is a solid entry that sets the scene and tells a good story, but as the series goes on the characters become more developed, their relationships and personaliti [...]


    9. This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.---So, here we are with the third Ree Reyes novel, the 4th adventure for her, and the end of her first character arc (although the only way really know this now is that Underwood keeps saying it -- I doubt I'd have been confident enough to say that until the beginning of her next novel/novella), and what a ride we've been on so far. Geekomancy was just ridiculously fun -- the style, the voice, the magic system pushed just about every one of my [...]


    10. Michael Underwood scores full points for a perfect hit with Hexomancy, drawing (at least the first cycle) of the Ree Reyes series (which include Geekomancy and Celebromancy along with the novella, Attack the Geek) to a full-on fun while satisfying ending. You know those episode-ending scenes around the table of Serenity from Firefly? There is a sense of camaraderie, coming home with people and life seeming to fit (even with chaos around the corner). That’s what Hexomancy is for me. Mr. Underwo [...]


    11. "Hexomancy" is the perfect closer to the opening chapter of what I sincerely *hope* will become "the Ree Reyes SAGA."The plot, which picks up where the "side-quest" novella "Attack the Geek" left off, revolves around the resolution of the conflict between Ree's "mentor" (and I wish there was a sarcasm font, right now!) Anthony Eastwood, and the hexomancers who seem to be after him. Of course, Ree gets pulled in, first as Eastwood's designated bodyguard, then as his more-or-less willing backup.Mi [...]


    12. First, allow me once more to say how thoroughly I enjoy these books. I am a geek through and through, my friends are geeks, even some of my favourite writers, actors and directors are geeks. Moving on to the novel itself, I didn't find it as good as Celebromancy, partly because it felt rushed. This could have easily been a trilogy of novellas; instead, we got all this plot - which could have been great if complimented with really interesting and deep antagonists - crammed into one single novel. [...]


    13. I got lucky and received an eARC of this title. I've thoroughly enjoyed the previous two novels and the novella in this series, and this third novel is no exception. Underwood delivers a delightful romp through all your favorite geekdoms, and additionally suggests some you might want to check out after you finish the story. Thankfully, all this referencing doesn't take away from the action of the story at hand. Ree and Co. are splendid, complex characters with their own motivations and drives, s [...]


    14. I have enjoyed all of Underwood's Ree Reyes novels greatly and Hexomancy is the best of the series thus far. With the characters established, Underwood has, and takes, the opportunity to play in the marvelous, varied, deliciously geeky world he has created and he does so with aplomb. Ree continues to amaze and enthrall and the supporting characters, from Eastwood to Grognard to Drake to Anya to Priya and beyond, are almost too much fun (in the sense of staying up far to late to hang out with the [...]


    15. Ree takes several steps forward in Hexomancy when she comes to Eastwoods rescue more than once. She also gains a partner in many ways when she and drake finally start going together. But the big reveal in the last few chapters really blows her Geekomancy world open. The fight in Spirit and the ending provides a foundation for further adventures. Do read and enjoy the adventure!


    16. "The fight against the trio of villains forms the backdrop in this delightful menage a trois of fantasy, science fiction, and gaming at their best. It’s almost as though the favorite parts of everything pop culture you love is intertwined in a thrilling brew that is as unrelenting in its pace as it is witty."examiner/article/5-fan


    17. Underwood's Ree Reyes urban fantasy series is a fun and fast read, perfect for airplane trips! This latest book has Ree face-off against a series of increasingly nasty Stregas, all while juggling her dislike of Eastwood (the reason for the Stregas). The geek references made me giggle throughout I mean, it even mentions the famous Vir wave from Babylon 5.


    18. ***This review was originally written for Bitten By Books****Following the devastating attack at Grognard’s Grog and Games, Ree Reyes and her fellow Geekomancer compatriots are finally having their day in Pearson’s magical equivalent of court. Lucretia is found guilty but Ree, Eastwood, and the rest of the community soon learn that there are far worse enemies to face. An interesting twist on the Greek Fates brings around Lucretia’s three sisters- all well versed in the art of Hexomancy and [...]


    19. Got ARC from Net Galley.The title got my attention and the words on the cover. I'm not sure if I realized it was third in a series before I requested it or just forgot that part. Maybe it is better if you read the series in order. I read the first two chapters and decided to put it down because I wasn't enjoying it.I guess I felt lost because I was just thrown into this book without reading the other books in this series but I wasn't that crazy about the writing style. I'm thinking gamers would [...]


    20. An eARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Finally I reached the book that I set out to review in the first place! I'm not sorry though because I enjoyed the ride so very much. While the first book in this series was quite clunky, as the series and the writer developed it improved greatly - as is often the case. I'm almost always willing to forgive first-book-clunk, if the story or characters are worth it. Ree is definitely one of those char [...]


    21. I received this book as a Netgalley before final release.Hexomancy is the fourth part to the Ree Reyes Geekomancy story which includes 3 novels and a action packed novella and it is also a concluding arc in the series.I have enjoyed the series for what it was to me, pure joyful cheesiness on crackers make from the love of all things pop culture and geeky and in reviewing this I do so in the context of what the book is,this is what happens when you mix modern urban fantasy with Ernest Cline's sen [...]


    22. Hexomancy concludes the events that started in the previous entry in the Geekomancy series, 'Attack The Geek' as well as the first arc in the (hopefully!) larger series overall. For those of you who have not read the series, it's the story of Rhiannon Anna Maria Reyes, or "Ree" who discovers that she has magic powers granted by watching, reading or otherwise consuming geek media. If she watches a Spider Man movie, she can crawl on walls, for example. The first book 'Geekomancy' introduces the re [...]


    23. I was actually quite disappointed about this book.It was so shallow?It has the plot complexity of a standard hollywoodic movie, with all the clichés needed in order to get to the expected ending.Sort of spoiler: when reading the first two books, there were certain plot points that I was certain will arrive at some point ("guns in the first act").I'm OK with that.I'm not OK when said "guns" are fired one after the other just to get them out of the way, and mostly in a way that feels very forced [...]


    24. Have you read any of these yet? Another series you really need to check out, urban fantasy fans! While you can actually read them separately, it's more fun to start at the beginning, when Ree discovers that there's something different about her and that there's a whole magical underground. A magical underground that not only hosts the "typical" magic types but those who use geek powers (got vintage Star Wars sheets? Use them to boost your magical mojo and bind your opponents!), can hex people, a [...]


    25. 3.5/5 stars. This book begins with Lucretia's trial for her attack on Grognard's. She maneuvers things so she can ask for trial by combat with Ree, and their trial takes place in a virtual reality video game. And it was awesome.Full of pop-culture and geek references, this latest installment of the Ree Reyes series manages to be more serious than the previous books but just as fun. After Lucretia is defeated she swears that her three Strega sisters will take revenge for her, each during a differ [...]


    26. I felt this installment was a much stronger book than the first two (and a half). The rules of the world had been pretty firmly established, and much fewer situations were solved by ridiculous things (deus ex machina if I'm using words I heard on the internets). I like how this one had a larger structure to the narrative, with the book separated into seasons. Without saying too much, I also liked that some of the elements that are in the later part of the book are introduced in the beginning of [...]


    27. I have had this book since it first came out last year. I have been delaying reading it because I love Ree Reyes' universe and knowing I have a new adventure of hers to read keeps my anticipatory excitement level high. I stretched it out as long as I could, but I had to join the Geeks on this trip. I was not disappointed in the least. I have read each of Ree's stories and this the best! Full of surprises and excitement and just enough familiarity to make one feel as if one is part of the group. [...]


    28. Ree Reyes is back after being nearly killed. Ree who can watch an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and then have Buffy’s powers for a short time or watch part of one of the Spiderman movies and then crawl up a wall, stopped Lucretia from killing her friend Eastwood. At her trial with the local geekdom, Lucretia request trial-by combat, which, of course, takes place inside a video game. By Lucretia’s friends, each with the power of Hexomancy (ebook from Simon and Schuster) and named for th [...]


    29. This book was definitely for the geeks. lol I was a little lost by this book at first because I have not read the other books in this series. I think I was a bit confused but once I got into this book it was good. I enjoyed the author's take on things. The story line was good. I think for me it was a cross between Harry Potter and Revenge of the Nerds a little bit. I think Ree is a good character and has great people/characters in her crew to help her though the tough times. * I received this bo [...]


    30. Another epic installment to the Geekomancy series. I honestly can't get enough of the world/characters that Underwood has created and the only down side to this book is that there's not another one out yet. If pop culture or the love of story runs in your veins even a little bit, then this series is well worth your time. And Hexomancy is a fantastic addition.Plus, chances are you'll read about some book, movie, TV series or game you've never experienced and find a brand new obsession!
