HAUNTED BY KELLEY ARMSTRONG

HAUNTED

Book Description

         Publication Date:         May 31, 2005

Eve Levine – half-demon, black witch and devoted mother – has been dead for three years. She has a great house, an interesting love life and can’t be killed again – which comes in handy when you’ve made as many enemies as Eve. Yes, the afterlife isn’t too bad – all she needs to do is find a way to communicate with her daughter Savannah and she’ll be happy. But fate – or more exactly, the Fates – have other plans. Eve owes them a favour, and they’ve just called it in. An evil spirit called the Nix has escaped from hell. She feeds on chaos and death, and is very good at persuading people to kill for her. The Fates want Eve to hunt her down before she does any more damage, but the Nix is a dangerous enemy – previous hunters have been sent mad in the process. As if that’s not problem enough, it turns out that the only way to stop her is with an angel’s sword. And Eve’s no angel….

Haunted is a great book, with a well-developed story line and characters. In this story we get Eve’s story. Eve is a ghost and she has been watching over her daughter. Eve has been chosen by the Fates to  bring back an evil spirit called the Nix who has escaped the afterlife. She is reunited with Savannah’s father  Kristof, when Savannah is targeted by the Nix. You will learn the back story that caused Eves death., and why she owes the Fates a favor. This story has a lot of twists and turns, and you will see characters from other books. Paige and Lucas also help out. I give this book 5/ 5 stars, and I recommend this book to everyone.

INDUSTRIAL MAGIC BY KELLEY ARMSTRONG

INDUSTRIAL MAGIC

Meet the smart, sexy — supernatural — women of the otherworld. This is not your mother’s coven…

Kelley Armstrong returns with the eagerly awaited follow-up to Dime Store Magic. Paige Winterbourne, a headstrong young woman haunted by a dark legacy, is now put to the ultimate test as she fights to save innocents from the most insidious evil of all.. . .

In the aftermath of her mother’s murder, Paige broke with the elite, ultraconservative American Coven of Witches. Now her goal is to start a new Coven for a new generation. But while Paige pitches her vision to uptight thirty-something witches in business suits, a more urgent matter commands her attention.

Someone is murdering the teenage offspring of the underworld’s most influential Cabals — a circle of families that makes the mob look like amateurs. And none is more powerful than the Cortez Cabal, a faction Paige is intimately acquainted with. Lucas Cortez, the rebel son and unwilling heir, is none other than her boyfriend. But love isn’t blind, and Paige has her eyes wide open as she is drawn into a hunt for an unnatural-born killer. Pitted against shamans, demons, and goons, it’s a battle chilling enough to make a wild young woman grow up in a hurry. If she gets the chance.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

Industrial Magic is a well written, fast-paced book with well-developed characters. Paige is a witch to be reckoned with. Paige is trying to cope with her exile from the coven, but with the help of Lucas and Savannah her ward she seems to be handling it pretty well. When Lucas’ father sends a message to her asking for her help, things might not run as smooth as she thinks. Lucas’s family is part of the Cabal, and the Coven/ Cabal have always been enemies. Lucas has been shunned by his family, but when young Cabal children come up missing, and dead, politics and feuds are set aside.  I loved this book and recommend it to everyone. I give it 5/5 stars.

DIME STORE MAGIC BY KELLY ARMSTRONG

dime store magic

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 is 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.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

Dime Store Magic is well written with characters that are well-developed and that are able to help move the story along. Paige Winterborne is a witch and has recently inherited her mother’s role as leader of the American Coven of Witches. Paige has recently  been given custody of a 13-year-old angry witch whose mother has been known to dabble in black magic. She was kidnapped along with her mother Eve who was later killed. Lucas Cortez a nerdy sorcerer lawyer helps Paige to keep Savannah safe while keeping his hands off the delectable Paige. The sparks and looks between Paige and Lucas are very hot. Savannah is also a very powerful witch that one day will be a witch to be reckoned with. The action in this been is very fast paced. There is also demons, and vampires making an appearance. I really likes Dime Store Magic and I give it 5/5 stars.

STOLEN BY KELLY ARMSTRONG

Book DescriptionSTOLEN

         Publication Date:         June 29, 2010
“A taut, sensual thriller that grips from the first page. Elena Michales is at once sublime and sympathetic, a modern heroine who shows that real women bite back.” –Karin Slaughter, The New York Times
In Book 2 of the Women of the Otherworld series, Elena  Michaels is back-and she has company. Lending a mission of vampires, demons,  shamans, and witches, Elena is lured into the net of ruthless Internet  billionaire Tyrone Winsloe, who is well on his way to amassing a private  collection of supernaturals. He plans to harness their powers for himself-even  if it means killing them.
For Elena, kidnapped and imprisoned deep underground,  unable to tell her friends from her enemies, choosing the right allies is a  matter of life and death.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
Stolen is a well-developed, fast paced read.  All of the characters are very likeable and well-developed. Elena has to find a way to escape the compound that she is taken to after she is kidnapped. Tyron Winsloe  is taking supernatural  and using their powers for himself.  Clay and the rest of the pack with some allies from the council help to break Elena out of the compound,  Stolen is a page turner that keeps you guessing at what is going to happen. When you think you know what they are going to do , they do the total opposite. This book leaves you wanting more. It is set mainly in the compound, and has little pack interaction until the end. If you have not read any of Kelly Armstrong‘s books, run out now and buy one today. I really liked this book so I give it 5/5 stars.

WHO WILL BE “BITTEN”? BY KELLY ARMSTRONG

Book Description

         Publication Date:         September 7, 2004  BITTEN
Soon to be a TV series on the Syfy channel in 2014.
“Frisky…Tells a rather sweet love story, and suggests that being a wolf may be more comfortable for a strong, smart woman than being human.” –The New York Times Book Review    Elena Michaels seems like the typically strong and sexy modern woman, She lives with her architect boyfriend, writes for a popular newspaper, and works out at the gym. She’s also a werewolf. Elena has done all she can to assimilate to the human world, but the man whose bite changed her existence forever, and his legacy, continue to haunt her. Thrown into a desperate war for survival that tests her allegiance to a secret clan of werewolves, Elena must recon with who, and what, she is in this passionate, page-turning novel that begins the Women of the Otherworld series.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

Bitten is a wonderful novel that take a whole new spin on the werewolf genre. It’s characters are well-developed, and the story pulls you in and does not let you go until the very last page. Elena is one kick ass female character and werewolf, and does not take any crap from anyone. She is the only woman to survive being bitten by a werewolf, all the others have died. There are no females born with the wolf gene, they are passed down in the male line from father to son. Clay is her mate and is very protective of her. She is brought back into the Pack when strange murders start occurring in New York. The different characters help to move the story along, and providing a mix of humor, seriousness, and darkness to the story. If you are looking for a fun, dark, sexy read, then this is the one for you.

They are also making this into a T.V. Series on the SyFy channel January 13,2014 on Space channel January 11, 2013.  If you were a fan of Smallville and caught the last few seasons, then you have seen the lead for Bitten. Laura Vandervoort wbitten_poster_smallill star in the 13-part series. I give this book 5/5 stars.
