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.
I have read Armstrong's first two books about werewolves, but I am not a big fan of witch fiction, so I began this book with a little apprehension. Let me assure you, Armstrong rose to the occasion with a wonderful book. Her characters are very likeable and the story line flows well and moves quickly. I would highly recommend this book, and the author, to anyone who enjoys reading supernatural fiction. She truly does justice to the genre. I can't wait to get started on the next Paige Winterbourne installment: Industrial Magic.
Dime Store Magic is the third book of the Women of the Otherworld series. This book follows the story of Paige Winterbourne, a witch that we meet in the second book, Stolen. Although I missed Elena & Clay in this one, I still enjoyed it immensely! Would highly recommend.
