No Saving Throw
by Kristin McFarland
Genre: Cozy Mystery
A supremely geeky murder mystery perfect for Whovians, gamers, and
Muggles alike.
“A cozy shop, a tricky murder, geek humor, and gaming lore galore―what’s
not to love in
No Saving Throw?
This book is a winner, and I can’t wait to take another turn!”
–Leigh Perry, author of The Family Skeleton Mysteries
“Enjoyable debut….Readers will hope to see a lot more of the plucky Autumn.”
Publisher’s Weekly

 

Autumn has everything she could possibly want: Loving friends, a successful
business, and a gaggle of gamers in her store every day.
Welcome to Ten Again, a tabletop gaming store that attracts nerds of every
kind and fosters a community Autumn’s pretty proud of―a community
that also keeps business afloat. And now that Autumn’s in the running
for a grant, Ten Again’s future is looking bright.
That is, until one of Autumn’s gamers is mysteriously murdered. With
everyone in the mall as a suspect and accusations flying, Autumn is
going to have to do some sleuthing of her own to save her shop and
her gamers from a fate more dangerous than having no saving throw.
A nat 20! No Saving Throw is
a fun, tight mystery that perfectly encapsulates the difficulties
gamers face at being taken seriously. Protagonist Autumn Sinclair
will stop at nothing to save not only her store, but also the geeky
community it fosters.” ―Alex Erickson, author of the Bookstore

Kristin McFarland has a Master of Arts in Journalism from Indiana University,
which launched her on a short-lived but very exciting career as a
newspaper reporter. After graduate school, she worked for five
different newspapers around the country, writing about politics,
crime, arts, environmental issues, crack addicts, prostitutes, and
parades. She eventually wised up and decided that making up political
fights and crime scenes would be a lot more fun than reporting on
real ones. Today, she lives in southern Indiana, where she spends
most of her time daydreaming about fictional lives and/or thinking
about wool.

A crystal ball assures existence, but when separated from its divine setting many years ago, its waning vigor generates panic; various worlds will cease to subsist if not found in time.
The search intensifies as witches and mortals together strive to elude the obstructions of specters, including a demon, in their expeditious intent to exclude the probability of perpetual darkness.

Excerpt
Rena faced the doors of Whilom Elementary once again. She stared at the crevices she had never taken notice of all those years walking toward them. There was no reason to turn back; it was only an urge. Just as she was about to turn away, she gazed downwards, slowly;one door was ajar.
‘She probably didn’t leave yet,’ she thought because the door was slightly open.
Although Ms. Biddock’s reaction frightened Rena, she understood the reason for her terrifying behavior: it must have been humiliating for her watching her colleagues walk away without offering to help her off the floor.
“Hmm,”she murmured, scratching her chin, contemplating about whether to shut the door. “Maybe Ms. Biddock has cooled down and will offer her apologizes tome.”
She was eager to give Ms. Biddock the opportunity to do so. With each passing minute, which had only been about three, since the time of the “closing of the door,” she decided to take that chance.
“Hello?Hello?” She peeked, bug-eyed, tentatively pushing the doors ajar. “Can anyone hear me?”
Sunlight had shone through the old classroom windows; its rays beamed vibrantly through the unclosed entries, and into the deserted hallways.
She walked inside and stopped at the corner of the hallway that led to Ms. Biddock’s office. The entrance was welcoming; the light was on, an indication that she was still there. Rena proceeded, soundlessly, until a distant voice was perceived, mumbling; she believed it to be that of the principal … Ms. Biddock.
“Maybe the teachers came back,” Rena whispered under her breath. “She can’t be talking to herself.”
“I’ve used many words to describe what I seek! I’ve searched for passages until blood showed on my feet!”
Rena stopped; her eyes grew larger; she looked to her left and then to her right.
“Or—maybe I was wrong.” She remained still, and then the bellowing chant had startled her yet again.
“I have asked repeatedly, help with my finding, the place where these memories and I were residing!”
Darkness rapidly supplanted the sun’s warm rays right before a storm produced instantaneously. Ear-piercing thunder resonated within the school building, consolidated with twisting winds that had abruptly slammed all the doors shut. Rena’s trembling hands capped her ears, and her eyes squinted as she flinched with pain. It was in that moment when she had decided—it was time to leave; however,a similar overwhelming urge enticed her just as it had on the school’s front steps: whether Ms. Biddock would apologize.
With eyes half-closed, Rena moved through the vigorous winds, and victoriously achieved the course that would conduct to her desired direction by way of the light glaring through the frosted glass atop the office entryway. She extended her arms outward and expressed perseverance, striving for Ms. Biddock’s door,and seized hold of the doorknob.
She triumphed in achieving her arduous grasp.
With tremoring hands and all her weight—all ninety pounds, Rena pushed upon thedoor, until there was an opportunity; little by little it opened; she persisted her fight against the storm, but she wasn’t strong enough; the winds on the other side were as vigorous, prompting her strength to weaken. The slight access she had obtained—closed; nonetheless, she refused to give up, and shoved again upon that office door, hard, and then even harder. It was surely opening,slightly, and more, and then more; she hurriedly stuck her foot inside,wiggling within the snug opening; then instantly, she was intrigued by the ceiling turned open sky of stupendous swirling clouds, the roaring of deep rumbles of thunder, and bursts of flashes of lightning!
She dominated the rattling door with one hand while the other kept back her‘tangled hair in the wind’ away from her face. Then, staring at her was a woman with piercing, glowing green eyes, which Rena had imagined, derived from the flashes of lightning.
“Ms.… Biddock?” she questioned aloud over twisting winds.
Coolly, Ms. Biddock turned away. She held out her arms under the blustery sky, aiming her gold, etched wand, as lightning strikes soared out of its wooden tip.
Rena distinguished one of the letters carved into the wand—the letter M; afterward,she was drawn to an outlandish desk, covered by an old, green leather-bound book, with bright lights beaming out of its oversized pages.
Ms.Biddock lowered her arms; her black layered gown waved simultaneously with her loose hair blowing wildly.
“Didn’t I tell you to leave!” she yelled.

My Review
5 Stars

A young girl goes missing at a summer camp and three months later her body is found. When a senator’s girl goes missing Eva Rae Thomas is asked to look into the disappearance. But Eva has a lot on her plate already. She went through a divorce, has moved her three girls back to her hometown, and is dealing with the girls acting out. Even if she promised not to work again she is asked to and can’t say no to the mother.

This is a great story with a lot happening. Eva is good at her job but broken from the divorce. Besides, how can you tell a grieving mother no when they ask you to find their daughter. Although there is a lot happening in this book it was very easy to keep up with the different events.

I have loved Willow Rose’s books since I started reviewing books many years ago. She is an amazing writer that draws you in with her writing and leaves you wanting more. This is the first in a new series and I can’t wait to read more about Eva Rae Thomas.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
