Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
From one of today’s most original writers comes the mesmerizing tale of an exceptional young woman caught up in an otherworldly realm where some will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world’s most powerful elite organizations—the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige’s wildest antics can’t hold a candle to those of her new charge—an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil...and evil is all too willing to claim her. For this girl is being pursued by a dark faction of the supernatural underworld. They are a vicious group who will do anything to woo the young, malleable, and extremely powerful neophyte, including commit murder—and frame Paige for the crime. It’s an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive.(summary from Amazon)
Kelley Armstrong's "Dime Store Magic" is the third novel in the "Women of the Otherworld" series.
I was so in love with the original werewolf novels, and their heroine Elena Michaels and Clay, that I had my doubts about whether or not I would enjoy this new book starring, not lycanthropes, but witches. But, I quickly became absorbed in the story, and Kelly Armstrong's writing is, as always, excellent and filled with her dark humor. I could not put it down. I was surprised that I loved this book, as I was not really a fan of Paige, but we never got much from her in previous books. Savannah also grew on me, I was not sure how much I liked her either. The new characters introduces were interesting, and I love the love interest that gets introduced in this book.
I wont mention who, as I do not want to mention any spoilers.
Kelly did a great job yet again with this book.
I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
