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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "As interesting as a sack of potatoes"... Feb. 8 2010
By Avery Greaves TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
*MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

This is the third book in Kelley Armstrong's "Women of the Otherworld" series and I must say, this is my least favourite book (as of yet) in the series. This book is narrated by Paige, the "know it all" witch we meet in "Stolen". When I first met Paige in "Stolen", I did believe that she was a somewhat annoying character, but looking back I can now say that in the first two books I was biased against all of the other female characters as I found Elena to pretty much the be all/ end all.

Going into "Dime Store Magic" I tried to put aside my preconceived notions of Paige and I do believe that I was successful... To a point. I personally found Paige to be way too 'happy housewife' for me, I like a girl who isn't afraid to kick butt... Paige is very much a homebody- she has the cookies and milk ready for when the kids come home, she is constantly backing,and she only wears skirts as jeans are beneath her. Though I believe that more people can relate to Paige than Elena, I much prefer Elena.

And as much as I love Elena I must admit that I love her partner Clay more. Introduced in "Dime Store Magic" is the male counterpart of Paige, Cortez. To sum it up, Cortez is as interesting as a sack of potatoes. At first I thought that Cortez had potential to be a really intriguing character when he knocked on Paige's door to offer her his assistance, standing there shuffling his papers about, afraid to meet her eyes... I thought he was going to be some loveable dork, but alas, that was not the case. I think what bugged me most about Cortez is his language. Yes, I understand that he is a lawyer and a professional, and therefore he has to uphold a certain persona. But really?
