More Than A Little Warped by Annette Marie & Rob Jacobsen is a novella in the Guild Codex Warped series and while I had read it, before listening to the fourth audiobook, I decided to listen. This is a novella I strongly recommend listening between books three and four.

As a conman-turned-MPD-Agent, I'm fairly new to the whole "upholder of justice" thing, but even for me, there are some lines you just don't cross. Agent Söze of the MPD's Internal Affairs department, on other hand, seems determined to slime his way across every ethical line in existence like an over-sized eel on a power trip.

Can you tell I don't like this guy?

While he's dismantling the precinct and hunting down rule-breakers among the staff—a category which my partner and I definitely fall into—a veritable storm of crazy is spreading through the city. Local troublemaking guild, the Crow and Hammer, has been accused of harboring a demon mage, and while I'm not sure what to believe, I've got bigger problems to tackle.

That is, until a certain notorious rogue druid calls me up about that big IOU I accidentally promised him. Now I have no choice but to dive into the chaos—though if I can knock Söze down a peg or two in the process, it'll be worth it.

The Guild Codex: Warped #3.5 is an action-packed novella that tells Kit's side of the deadly final showdown from Damned Souls and a Sangria.

Novella SUSPENSE urban well written

The events that occur in More Than A Little Warped is told from Kit’s point of view regarding the events Damned Souls and a Sangria (The Guild Codex: Spellbound #8). All the series in the Guild Codex world overlap and have some crossover. Something I love about the series. You can listen to each series individual but I recommend following the recommended order: Reading Order

For fans of the series, this was a treat. I loved getting things from Kit’s perspective. It gave us a clearer picture of all that went down as members of the Crow and Hammer dealt with demon mage claims and the key. Plus, we learn more about Kit, Lienna and their dealings with Captain Blythe.

The tale was action-packed with cameos from characters in the other stories. Agent Söze is stirring up trouble at the Crow & Hammer, and you would not believe what is happening at MPD’s headquarters. It brought back memories, and I enjoyed a couple of ah ha moments.

The novella was suspenseful, and chock full of humor. I listened in one sitting and while I had read the novella previously; I recommend listening. Iggy Toma does a stellar job with Kit and the other characters.
