Review: Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong

One of the most popular writers of paranormal fiction and the #1 New York Times bestselling author returns with a rollicking new novel in her Otherworld series.

At twenty-one, Savannah Levine-orphaned daughter of a notorious dark witch and an equally notorious cutthroat sorcerer-considers herself a full-fledged member of the otherworld. The once rebellious teen has grown into a six-foot-tall, motorcycle-riding jaw-dropper, with an impressive knowledge of and ability to perform spells. The only problem is, she's having a hard time convincing her adoptive parents, Paige and Lucas, to take her seriously as an adult. She's working as the research assistant at the detective agency they founded, and when they take off on a romantic vacation alone, leaving her in charge, Savannah finds herself itching for a case to call her own. (She's also itching for Adam, her longtime friend and colleague, to see her as more than just a little girl, but that's another matter.)

Suddenly, Savannah gets the chance she's been waiting for: Recruited by another supernatural detective, she travels to Columbus, Washington, a small, dying town. Two troubled young women have been found in an abandoned warehouse, murdered. Now a third woman's dead, and on closer inspection small details point to darker forces at play. Savannah feels certain she can handle the case, but with signs of supernatural activity appearing at every turn, things quickly become more serious- and far more dangerous-than she realizes.

The first book I read by Kelley Armstrong was BITTEN back in 2001.  I remember being so into that book that I couldn't put it down.  It was the first time I read a book that size in one day.  I am happy to say that Kelley still keeps me entertained and I am so glad that I picked up her book ten years ago.

WAKING THE WITCH renewed my love for this author's writing.  She never lets me down and I'm looking forward to the next installment in the Women of the Underworld series.  If you are a paranormal fan, you have to read this book.  It's fast-paced, intriguing and a fun way to spend your day.
