This is the 4th book in the Women of the Otherworld series. Although this book was a little slow to start, I enjoyed it. You really get to know Paige & Lucas and are introduced to a few new characters...and Elena & Clay are back! I love how this author intertwines the characters, so each book in the series can focus on each of their stories.
Industrial Magic is the fourth book in the Women of the Otherworld series and a follow up to Dime Store Magic. Industrial Magic stars Paige and her boyfriend Lucas as they attempt to stop a murder who is killing off the children of important Cabal members. Along with the exciting plot, we get a sweet romance, and plenty of expansion on the Underworld universe. We learn about vampires and LOTS about the afterlife, which will set things up for the next book, Haunted. Industrial Magic, like all of the books in the series before it, is an example of well written horror/paranormal. I can't wait to read the next book.
There were so many things that happened in this book - learning more about the afterlife (a LOT more at one point) and death and vampires and much more. Lots happened with character relationships, especially Paige and Lucas and Lucas and his father. Even perhaps the beginning of one between Jaime and Jeremy. I enjoyed seeing Elena and Clay again. Meeting Eve was also great - now I understand better how the next book can be her book even though she's dead. These books are just really "wow" books.
I've been trying to read this series for some time and finally read one (this one). I know I'm jumping in the middle of the series but I really liked this book. BTW, comparisons are odious, but I came to this series from Laurell K Hamilton. This series has sex scenes, but not nearly as explicit as Hamilton's; nor is the sex a najor plot element. I'm not saying one approach is better than the other, just comparing the two bodies of work.
People in the story just happen to be witches or half demons, but are otherwise good guys and gangsters. Fun and exciting.
