One of the most popular writers of paranormal fiction and the #1 New York Times bestselling author returns with a rollicking new novel in her Otherworld series.

At twenty-one, Savannah Levine-orphaned daughter of a notorious dark witch and an equally notorious cutthroat sorcerer-considers herself a full-fledged member of the otherworld. The once rebellious teen has grown into a six-foot-tall, motorcycle-riding jaw-dropper, with an impressive knowledge of and ability to perform spells. The only problem is, she's having a hard time convincing her adoptive parents, Paige and Lucas, to take her seriously as an adult. She's working as the research assistant at the detective agency they founded, and when they take off on a romantic vacation alone, leaving her in charge, Savannah finds herself itching for a case to call her own. (She's also itching for Adam, her longtime friend and colleague, to see her as more than just a little girl, but that's another matter.)

Suddenly, Savannah gets the chance she's been waiting for: Recruited by another supernatural detective, she travels to Columbus, Washington, a small, dying town. Two troubled young women have been found in an abandoned warehouse, murdered. Now a third woman's dead, and on closer inspection small details point to darker forces at play. Savannah feels certain she can handle the case, but with signs of supernatural activity appearing at every turn, things quickly become more serious- and far more dangerous-than she realizes.

Detective procedural with supernatural overtones. Part of a series, this does not inspire me to try the rest. Pedestrian.

A fun read that clipped along at a good pace; although, apparently I have a lot of catching up to do with the previous books in this series, since this is the first Kelley Armstrong book that I've read.

Great a usual, can't say enough about Kelley Armstrong. If you haven't read this yet Read it, and then read Spellbound right after, the two sort of go together.

I enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read "Spellbound". Kelley Armstrong pleases me once again! The adventures of Savannah and her friends continue!

this book was okay. the beginning was slow, but it was really interesting near the end.
as always, Kelley Armstrong's books are really entertaining to read.

Another great book from Kelley Armstrong, this time, focused on Savannah. Shorter than her usual output.

In true Armstrong fashion, this book was quickly paced, with one bit of action following another hot on its heels. I particularly admired the many twists in this story, I was legitimately surprised almost the entire way. As mentioned by another commentator, the ending was very suspenseful, and I imagine Ms. Armstrong has another Savannah-centric novel coming out before long...well worth the read, and will leave you pining for more. :)

Nice to see Savannah all grown up. I like Kelley Armstrong and have been a fan since the beginning... I really disliked the ending of this book, very cliffhangerish.... and unlike KLA.
