The new novel in Kelley Armstrong's bestselling Women of the Otherworld series showcases the fascinating Savannah Levine, a powerful young witch with a rebellious past and a troublesome heritage.

The orphaned daughter of a sorcerer and a half-demon, Savannah is a terrifyingly powerful young witch who has never been able to resist the chance to throw her magical weight around. But at twenty-one she knows she needs to grow up and prove to her guardians, Paige and Lucas, that she can be a responsible member of their supernatural detective agency. So she jumps at the chance to fly solo, investigating the mysterious deaths of three young women in a nearby factory town, as a favour to one of the agency's associates. At first glance, the murders look garden-variety human, but on closer inspection signs point to otherworldly stakes.

Soon Savannah is in over her head. She's run off the road and nearly killed, haunted by a mystery stalker and freaked out when the brother of one of the dead women is murdered when he tries to investigate the crime. To complicate things, something weird is happening to her powers. Pitted against shamans, demons, a voodoo-inflected cult and garden-variety goons, Savannah has to fight to ensure her first case isn't her last. And she also has to ask for help, perhaps the hardest lesson she's ever had to learn.

Detective procedural with supernatural overtones. Part of a series, this does not inspire me to try the rest. Pedestrian.

A fun read that clipped along at a good pace; although, apparently I have a lot of catching up to do with the previous books in this series, since this is the first Kelley Armstrong book that I've read.

Great a usual, can't say enough about Kelley Armstrong. If you haven't read this yet Read it, and then read Spellbound right after, the two sort of go together.

I enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read "Spellbound". Kelley Armstrong pleases me once again! The adventures of Savannah and her friends continue!

this book was okay. the beginning was slow, but it was really interesting near the end.
as always, Kelley Armstrong's books are really entertaining to read.

Another great book from Kelley Armstrong, this time, focused on Savannah. Shorter than her usual output.

In true Armstrong fashion, this book was quickly paced, with one bit of action following another hot on its heels. I particularly admired the many twists in this story, I was legitimately surprised almost the entire way. As mentioned by another commentator, the ending was very suspenseful, and I imagine Ms. Armstrong has another Savannah-centric novel coming out before long...well worth the read, and will leave you pining for more. :)

Nice to see Savannah all grown up. I like Kelley Armstrong and have been a fan since the beginning... I really disliked the ending of this book, very cliffhangerish.... and unlike KLA.
