Shotgun Sorceress is an urban fantasy set in Columbus, Ohio and in Cuchillo, Texas. It's a direct sequel to Spellbent and features the continued adventures of Jessie, her familiar Pal, Cooper Marron, and The Warlock.
Outlaw sorceress Jessie Shimmer and her friends are trapped in an isolated West Texas town that is being decimated by a soul harvester named Miko. As they battle Miko and her minions, Jessie discovers a darkness within herself that she must overcome to save the town, her friends, and her own soul.
"(A) hard-hitting and rather offbeat urban fantasy series. ... It's a wild ride ... lots of fun."
— Locus Magazine
"With a suspenseful trip through a dark faery region, several uber-dark visits to Jessie's internal 'hellement,' and all kinds of monsters and demons causing all kinds of chaos, Snyder is quickly building a series that--if it keeps up this pace--will surely become a favorite of cross-genre fans."
— Horror Fiction Review
"Jessie Shimmer has rescued her boyfriend from hell, but her day ain't over yet. On the run from a bigger, badder supernatural force than she can handle, she ends up in a little niche of hell, a small town in Texas taken over by a demon. In the end, Jessie has a showdown straight out of a spaghetti western. AWESOME." (read more)

"Snyder excels at placing the reader directly in the action of her surreal world, and keeps them firmly ensconced there despite a fast and furious pace ... Eccentric secondary players also contribute to the enjoyable wild ride." (read more)
