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.
