Waking the Witch (Women of the Otherworld, Book 11)

Waking the Witch (Women of the Otherworld, Book 11) - Kelley Armstrong We first meet Savannah in Stolen, where she is a young witch under Ruth Winterbourne’s guardianship. Savannah has grown up. Savannah is now 21 years old, 6 feet tall, and has inherited her mother’s good looks. Savannah works as an investigator for Paige and Lucas’ agency. While Paige and Lucas are enjoying a Hawaiian vacation, Savannah gets a case and decides to solve it on her own. Someone is murdering young women in a small town. The murders appear to be ritualistic and the list of suspects seems to get larger. The book reads more like a mystery than an urban fantasy. Many unexpected things happened. And the ending – I don’t remember Kelley Armstrong treating her fans to a cliffhanger before. The only thing that I didn’t like about the book was the amount of time spent describing all the spell casting. It felt a little repetitive. Savannah is a very likable character. She is young, beautiful, smart, and resourceful. Savannah is a very capable and powerful witch. She is grounded and down to earth, despite her supernatural talents. She tends to be a little too independent, resulting is several dangerous encounters and a few uh-oh moments. And yes, there is an appearance by Adam, not as a romantic interest, more of a protector. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. I hope that there is more Savannah and Adam.
