Publisher's Summary

Fame has a magic all its own in the no-gossip-barred follow-up to Geekomancy. Ree Reyes gets her big screenwriting break, only to discover just how broken Hollywood actually is.
Things are looking up for urban fantasista Ree Reyes. She’s using her love of pop culture to fight monsters and protect her hometown as a Geekomancer, and now a real-live production company is shooting her television pilot script.
But nothing is easy in show business. When an invisible figure attacks the leading lady of the show, former child-star-turned-current-hot-mess Jane Konrad, Ree begins a school-of-hard-knocks education in the power of Celebromancy. Attempting to help Jane Geekomancy-style with Jedi mind tricks and X-Men infiltration techniques, Ree learns more about movie magic than she ever intended. She also learns that real life has the craziest plots: not only must she lift a Hollywood-strength curse, but she needs to save her pilot, negotiate a bizarre love rhombus, and fight monsters straight out of the silver screen. All this without anyone getting killed or, worse, banished to the D-List.

Thank the gods they changed narrator!

If you've listened to the first book, and managed to get through the HORRIBLE reading, then try this, the narrator is leagues ahead of that reader, and makes the book interesting

The story itself is a little jumbled at times, it tries to explain the celebrities and how they live off of their fans "power", turning it into a magical element, which in some cases makes sense - how do some of them stay so young for so long? It's GOT to be magic, right?

Overall, quite a good story, a decent reading, and takes the story of Ree on a little further, and in its way a sideways look at certain bits of society use magic without the general population realising it's anything but magic

If you're into geek culture, and are a real geek, not a fake one ("look, I wear glasses, so I'm a geek"), then this will raise some smiles, but if you're not a geek then most of this will whoosh over your head so fast that you'll be lost in 95% of the book!
