What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
My name is Kit Morris, and welcome to my warped life.
Picture the scene: Me, an average guy with psychic powers—not that my abilities are in any way average—just trying to scrape by in a harsh world. So maybe I’ve conned a few people, but did I really deserve to be thrown in MPD jail alongside magic-wielding serial killers?
According to Agent Lienna Shen, one-hundred-percent yes.
But her hardass attitude and “Arcana prodigy” status aren’t enough to bring down my former best friend, who slipped through the MPD’s fingers and is days away from unleashing untold horrors upon the city. Or he’s going to steal something. I don’t really know.
Whatever he’s up to, that’s why I’m sitting in an interrogation room with Lienna. And that’s why I just offered myself as her temporary new partner for the purposes of thwarting my ex-accomplice.
And that’s how I’m going to escape. I might even help with the case before I cut and run.
Thoughts on Warping Minds & Other Misdemeanors
I love Kit!
This entire universe has expanded and flourished, offering us up tale after tale with captivating characters and intense situations. This is no different. Instead of the walls of a guild, we are looking at the inner workings of the MPB, through the eyes of a small time criminal. It’s funny, fast paced and entertaining.
A few old faces make cameos and while you don’t have to read the other two collections from this world, there are events mentioned that pull it all together.
Kit is a fantastic addition to this universe, and Lienna is on a fast track to becoming one of my favorite FMC’s in the Guild Codex Universe.

My Final Verdict on Warping Minds & Other Misdemeanors
Fantastic addition to this growing universe! You do not need to read the other collections, but it does fill in some blanks. Great Characters, fast plot and rich backdrop – plus it’s free on Kindle Unlimited!
