Book Review: Kelley Armstrong's "Waking the Witch" - on Sale NOW!
Kelley Armstrong, acclaimed writer of the Otherworld Series, has released her latest book in this series called, "Waking the Witch". An intricately-woven mystery mixed with some supernatural tricks, makes this latest book a wickedly witchy tale of enchantment.
Savannah Levine, assistant Private Investigator, finds a chance to solve a case on her own, while her adoptive parents, who are also the owners of the PI firm, are off on a romantic vacation. Riding her motorcycle through rural Washington, she arrives in a small town, rich with economic woe, to investigate the murders of three teenage girls. Remains of witchcraft rituals are found, giving our first hint of a true supernatural element to this case. From throwing energy bolts, to casting blur spells, our heroine fights both mortal and Supernatural, and receives assistance from half-demons and other Supernaturals, in this intricately woven tale. Being the daughter of a dark witch and a sorcerer, she comes by many of her talents naturally. When all is said and done, it's her human side that we remember most.
This author has taken the time, within this tale, to dispel many myths about witchcraft, and the supernatural. The story is told from the perspective of a 21 year old witch and PI, but you can feel the experienced woman and storyteller behind the book, with every page. Having never read any of Kelley Armstrong's books before, I was left wanting more. I'll be on the lookout for her next one!
