Dime Store Magic (Women of the Otherworld, Bk 3)
Dime Store Magic - Women of the Otherworld, Bk 3 Author:Kelley Armstrong Forget nude-dancing Wiccans, forget Samantha from 'Bewitched', forget the cackling green hag in the Wizard of Oz. Real witches are nothing, NOTHING like this. For years, real witches have hidden their powers, afraid of being persecuted. They have integrated so well into the community, you could have a witch living right next door, and never know... more » about it. Take Paige, for instance. Just an ordinary twentysomething, runs her own website design company, worries about her weight, wonders if she'll ever find a boyfriend. Okay, so she has an adopted daughter, Savannah, who wants to raise her mother from the dead. And who is being stalked by a telekinetic demon and a renegade sorceror. But other than that -- really ordinary life. That is, until the neighbours find out who she is, and all hell breaks loose. Literally.« less
I have to be honest...this was a book I kept putting down in favor of another, and eventually, I did pick back up and finish. My opinion of the book improved towards the end. Oh well, I did read the whole thing, but I won't be reading another by this author.
While I loved the first two books in this series, I didn't like this one. This is about Paige, the witch we meet in the second book. Paige's mother has died and now Paige wants to take her place as leader of one of the world's most powerful oganizations-The American Coven of Witches. People who like stories about witches love this one.
It took me a little while to get into this book because I found myself really missing Elena's voice. But once I truly gave Paige a chance, I found that I did actually like her (she had been a bit annoying in Stolen) and enjoyed reading her story.
This was the first time Page had to deal with how she felt about herself. Not as just a witch but as a wife also. As always Kelly Armstrong gets you feeling that you know the people so well and can cry with them and get mad with them. I read the book in just 2 days. Loved Loved it.
Hard to explain but - it took me awhile to read this. It didn't grab me and hold me like some books - but I kept picking it back up to find out what happened next. Will read the next one in the series...
I really wanted to like this series. It seems like something I would like. I struggled through the first two. I'm not even sure why they are so hard for me to get into but I'm done. I can't struggle through another.
