Dime Store Magic

by Kelley Armstrong

‘Women of the Otherworld’ series Book #3

Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world’s most powerful elite organizations – The American Coven of Witches. Now that she’s twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige’s wildest antics can’t hold a candle to those of her new charge – an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil … and evil is all too willing to claim her. For this girl is being pursued by a dark faction of the supernatural underworld. They are a vicious group who will do anything to woo the young, malleable, and extremely powerful neophyte, including commit murder – and frame Paige for the crime. It’s an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive.

Review: I really like how Armstrong does this series. While you’ve met most of the characters int he first two books, this one is like a continuation of another character’s story.

In Book #2, I wasn’t that crazy about Paige at first. She didn’t strike me as a strong character. However, in this novel, she’s an excellent character. Strong, witty, down-to-earth, a determined young woman who found the weight of the world on her shoulders and she coped as best as she could. I really liked her attitude and personality, her courage, her determination to do the right thing, to say the right thing, no matter how bad she wanted to act impulsively.

I think she’s doing right by Savannah, and I’m glad she’s getting a little help from a nice guy.
