On the Back of the Book
When Paige Winterbourne is ousted as leader of the American Coven of Witches, all she wants to do is hide under her duvet fpr a few months. But fate, of course, has other plans. A murderer is on the loose - someone with superhuman skills and a grudge against the supernatural community. When Paige learns that the killer is targeting children, she has to get involved.
Desperate to protect those she loves, Paige is thrown nto a world of arrogant sorcerers, drunken necromancers, sulky druid gods and pretentious leather-clad vampires. Not to mention an apparently unstoppable supernatural psychopath hell-bent on revenge...
The plot in this book is amazing. I found myself being dragged into the story. It was fast and furious and it grabbed me by the throat and it refused to let me go until it was done with me. I still found myself despairing at Paige but she was only a minor annoyance because I refused to let her dampen my enjoyment of the book.
I'm not going to talk about Paige anymore, I've made it clear that I'm not a fan. Lucas is average, he's dependable, this annoyed me at times. It made me want Clay. Actually, speaking of Clay he was back! Which obviously means Elena was. It was a bit of a reunion book because so was Jeremy, Adam (Paige's half demon friend), Cassandra and Aaron (the vampires) and there was even an appearance from Eve Levine. New character Jaime Vegas was pretty good, I love the idea of a TV psychic who is actually a necromancer. How can you not like a book with such a whole host of amazing characters?
This book has a great plot and great characters so you'd think I'd be satisfied. Alas though, I am not. There was nowhere near enough Savannah, she's one of my favourite characters and she wasn't in the book, I was gutted. On the plus side, I got the ending! That's right I wasn't left hopelessly confused, although I did have to concentrate very hard.
4 stars - This is better than Dime Store Magic by a long chalk. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I marked it down due to the lack of Savannah and the fact that, in my opinion, Paige is no leading lady. I loved how everyone got involved. I like team work.
A Final Note
This is an adult book, written for adults, so it contains sex, swearing and violence. Definitely not for the squeamish. It does contain the deaths of kids so if you're sensitive to that kind of stuff, step away from the book.
