My Review: A couple of days ago I reviewed Shatter Me for the second time. I'm not an avid re-reader (too many books, so little time) but as I looked around my book shelves I noticed a few series that I've failed to keep up on. So I informally named the summer of 2014 as the "remember all the book series that I need to catch up on!" Ya, it's a catchy title.

Kelley Armstrong's wonderful 'Women of the Underworld' series was unfortunately one of these series that I had fallen behind on. And that's sad because I adore it. In my recent review of Shatter Me I had stated that the old adage 'you can never go home' can come into play when rereading a book you once loved. Meaning, that you may find yourself not quite so smitten with the book the second time around. I'm happy to say this isn't the case for Dime Store Magic.

I had first read Dime Store Magic back somewhere around 2006 and liked it. But, at that time, I think my love of all things Elena and Clay (the two main characters in the first two books in the series - Bitten and Stolen) kind of overshadowed what Armstrong was trying to do with Paige in Dime Store Magic because this time around I loved it. I was really riveted to the story and had a hard time putting the book down. Lots of great supernatural action with well fleshed out characters = a truly great read.

I've waxed poetic about this series by one of my favourite Canadian authors time and again on this blog so I won't tell you to go out and pick up Bitten (the first book in the series) ASAP just because I've gotten more people than I can count hooked on this series.
I won't tell you to but I highly advise it. ;)

Highly recommended (but begin with Bitten and read in order!

Format: Paperback
As a practicing witch with a coven to lead, her own website design business, and a thirteen-year-old ward to raise, Paige Winterbourne is a busy young woman. When a man claiming to be Savannah’s father serves her with papers demanding custody, Paige drops everything to protect Savannah from what she believes are dangerous people. It’s bad enough that the magic they’re attempting to use on Paige and Savannah could be lethal, but the father’s representative is the woman who killed Paige’s mother. When a mysterious young man appears on her doorstep and offers to be her lawyer, Paige is torn between the need to accept his help, or to send him packing. After all, the man is a sorcerer, and sorcerers can’t be trusted.

Dime Store Magic is part of the Women of the Otherworld series. This is my first venture into Paige’s intriguing world and it’s a fun place to visit. A couple of scenes were a bit grisly, however the plot, pacing, and characters were terrific. The backstory added depth to main characters, and provided sufficient motivation to understand the things they did. The plot at first seemed simple, which is to protect Savannah, yet there’s more going on. It’s about Paige’s fight to preserve the life she’s come to love and to keep her mission to stop the coven from living in fear. There’s a lot of detail about their lives and the rules of witchcraft and sorcerers to keep the story interesting.

Since Paige lives in a small town in Massachusetts, her misfortunes become public knowledge, which brings threats from the locals and anger from her coven. I found myself sympathizing with her situation, and angry at those who would neither support or accept her and Savannah. As I neared the end of the book, I simply couldn’t put it down. For me, good books invoke an emotional response with page-turning action. It also makes this is a series I’ll read from beginning to end.

DIME STORE MAGIC by Kelley Armstrong

DIME STORE MAGIC is the third novel in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. A diversion from Kelley’s Werewolves, DSM focuses on Paige Winterbourne, who was first introduced in Stolen. .

Following the death of her mother, Paige Winterbourne has become Coven leader. And to complicate matters, Paige is now the guardian of Savannah Levine, the young witch who has yet to come into her full powers. When Paige’s position within the Coven is questioned, she is removed and must find a way to ensure both her safety and Savannah’s. But it is a question of paternity and by the Nast Cabal that will push Paige into a life involving the Cabals and Lucas Cortez.

Kristof Nast seeks custody of the young witch. Knowing that the Cabals train a young witch into active duty and in trust to the Cabal’s, Paige is worried that Savannah will be pulled into a world of sorcery, witchcraft and death. But it will be Kristof’s revelations that he is Savannah’s biological father that will further complicate and add fuel to the Nast Cabal custody battle.

Lucas Cortez is a sorcerer. As the bastard son and heir to the head of the Cortez Cabal, Lucas has relinquished all claims to the life and its many privileges and problems. But as a young lawyer, Lucas has willingly volunteered to help Paige with her custody battle against the Nast Cabal. But the bigger problem is the less than happy relationship between the Nast and Cortez Cabals. And now Paige and Savannah are caught in the middle of a custody battle that will eventually see a powerful sorcerer dead and a young witch grieving the death of her parents.

Dime Store Magic was not one of my favorite storylines, but will all due respect, it was not my least favorite.
