A side-quest novella in the bestselling Geekomancy urban fantasy series?when D&D-style adventures go from the tabletop to real life, look out!
Ree Reyes, urban fantasista and Geekomancer extraordinaire, is working her regular drink-slinger shift at Grognard?s bar-and-gaming salon when everything goes wrong. The assorted magic wielders of the city?s underground have come to test their battle skills via RPGs like D&D, V:TES, White Wolf, and the like. All the usuals are there: her ex-mentor Eastwood, Drake (the man-out-of-time adventurer), and, of course, Grognard himself (her boss and a brewer of beer that act as magic potions). However, it?s the presence of these and other ?usuals? that makes all the trouble. For, a nemesis from Eastwood and Ree?s past decides to finally take her revenge not just on those two, but on every self-styled ?hero? in the city who happens to have crossed her at one point or another. When wave after wave of monsters besiege Grogrnard?s store, if Ree & Co. are going to survive, they?re going to have to work together. And avoid the minotaur. That?s always a good rule of thumb.
