Spellbound–Kelley Armstrong

Another Savannah-centric book, and I really loved it. I think I just understand where are her worries and fears come from and that makes me really get her.

Plus she is also sarcastic and sassy and doesn’t take anybodies shit, so I love that about her too.

Although she can hold her own, her best friend, and potential lover hopefully someday, Adam, is sticking by her side like glue.

The reason? Savannahs spells were taken away when she made the “terrible” mistake of wishing that she would give them up if it meant helping a little girl and her grandmother.

Doesn’t really sound like Savannah, but she’s growing as a person and showed signs of this sort of things early on in the last book. (She used to be a petulant child who thought sneakily torturing humans was funny because she was, quite obviously, superior to them.)

In this book, her spells have vanished which means that she needs to learn to fight without them. Hell, she needs to learn how to live normally without them because they aren’t showing any signs of coming back.

There is an oncoming storm afoot, all our favourites are in danger.

Stayed tuned for the final novel in the series.

Waking the Witch–Kelley Armstrong

Well, my my my, what do we have here?

A book about Savannah Levine?!?!! Wasn’t she just sitting around being a sassy kid while Paige tried to make sure she didn’t get kidnapped again?

Well, Savannah is a groooown woman and she can do whatever she wants. (Imagine I said that in Beyonces voice, not a creepy one.)

21 and still holstering her amazing powers like a weapon, she is trying to sneak under the radar of Paige and Lucas while they are on vacation and investigate a case all on her own. After Paige and Lucas opened up their PI firm (hiring Savannah as a receptionist) she decided she didn’t want to go to college, she didn’t want to move out, she didn’t want anything to change, so she stayed in the same place, doing the same stuff.

I can actually really relate to Savannah on this even though I’m 28 years old.

I fucking hate change. But I’m partial to adventure, so I get confused on what I really want sometimes.

Which is tolerable in a 21 year old, but not so much in a 28 year old…I really need to get my shit together…

Rambling. Okay. So Savannah is investigating a couple of murders and stumbles on to something way bigger than she could imagine, or handle on her own.

Thank God for her bestie hunky Adam, the fire half demon, for showing up to help her out, because her powers are going on the fritz.

This book also made me realize that Kelley Armstrong must have a thing for blondes because this is the third guy that is a big beefy hunky blonde man. (And certainly not the last.)

Constant vigilance! Hope you had a lovely family day weekend and a fantastic love day!

Personal Demon–Kelley Armstrong

Hope Adams is a chaos half-demon.

She loves a good thrill, loves a good fight, and loves it when chaos vibes roll through her whenever hunky suave Karl Marsten, werewolf, is around.

I understand that I can make these book sounds incredibly insane and cheesy, but you don’t have to trust my writing, you have to trust Kelley Armstrongs.

Here is another example of exemplary writing and story telling.

We’ve met Hope before, we know what she’s like, and now we are getting a great adventure involving my favourite Cabal leader, Benecio ‘Kill You With A Thunder Bolt” Cortez, a gang of supernaturals looking to take down the Cabals, and the ever angry: Karl Marsten. With Hope at the forefront and trying to get a hold of her powers as they grow and sometimes debilitate her, we end up with a really fun book.

Great plot, great ending, just great, great, great.

Plus Hope continually puts Karl in his place whenever he gets out of line and I love that she’s always ribbing him.

Constant vigilance.

Stolen–Kelley Armstrong

Humans aren’t in the know when it comes to supernatural beings. We are focused on the lore and the materialistic side of it: ie. What could powers DO for me?

In the second of the Otherworld series we are back with the werewolves and Elena Michaels has been captured by a duel working team of supernatural’s and humans. Working to find out all they can and exploit all they can in an under ground facility where they study supernatural’s. The humans are closing in.

Elena, being the only female werewolf, is in high demand since women rarely survive being bitten and are certainly not born with the gene. Being a werewolf is a boys club.

We’ve all likely read something where people or things are being experimented on, it all sounds familiar right? Under ground? Scientists? Humans pushing the limits?

This is a book, while using all the classic scare tactics such as the poking and prodding of science, that also uses the dark side of human nature. Very well written, fresh, and down right stressful while also providing heart warming moments.

I love Elena. She feels like a real person even though she is a werewolf, she admits to being scared, she has panic attacks, she has real people flaws that I enjoy reading about.

Good stuff. (This is why I’m rereading the series book by book instead of just the new ones.)

Constant vigilance.
