“Armstrong keeps the focus on hip, impulsive and likable Savannah, building suspense with plenty of plot reversals and betrayals. Fans of the series won’t want to miss what is clearly the first battle in an Otherworld war.”
"Powerfully written... Moves along at a sprightly clip, and Armstrong's senses of humour and suspense are spot on. She knows when to break the tension and when to ramp it up, as evidenced by the climax and dénouement. The reader who gets through that without feeling a bit ragged might want to be checked for a pulse."
—The Globe and Mail
Praise for Waking the Witch:
"Armstrong is quite deft at making Savannah simultaneously formidable, sympathetic and real.... A quick and fun read."
—The Miami Herald
"Waking the Witch is a satisfying read that stands well on its own....Waking the Witch is a solid blend of fantasy and detective novel that both male and female readers will enjoy."
—The Great Geek Manual
About the Author
KELLEY ARMSTRONG has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.See all Product Description

Spell Bound picks up right where Waking the Witch ended. Normally you can pretty much read the books in the Women of the Otherworld Series in any order, but with Book 11 Waking the Witchand 12 Spell Boundyou'll have to read them together. They are the first two books in a story arc that will take us to the end of the Women of the Otheworld Series with Book 13.
That being said, Spell Bound is the best yet in an already amazing series. Witch Hunters, zombies, spell casters, necromancers, witches, werewolves, sorcerers, close calls, near death experiences, demons and more. In short, it has everything you could want and then some.
The book moves quickly so if you start reading, be prepared to read for a while as you won't want to put it down. It's a spell binding (haha) penultimate entry in the Women of the Otherworld that will leave you salivating for the final book to come next year.
Don't listen to all the naysayers out there calling this a young adult book. If you DO want to read it and haven't read Waking the Witch yet, start there and THEN read Spell Bound. It'll shock you, thrill you and make you laugh quite a bit, which is always a good thing.
In short: AWESOME in every way!
Spellbound has a lot of action, suspense, mystery, and oh, my God moments, but it lacked the romance that I've come to love in the Otherworld books. Kelley Armstrong's writing is always impeccable and keeps me glued to the pages regardless of the missing romance. There was a little, a hint here and there of a blossoming love, but it just wasn't on the same level as the rest of the series. Maybe, since Kelley's readers have been following Savannah for so long, she wants to ease us into her romantic life!? I don't know.
I'm desperately hoping the next book, the last book, will give me what I've been soooooo frantically waiting for!
If you've read the rest of the series, you will not want to miss out on this one! This author always delivers!
A side note. It was great to see the whole gang show up. Hope, Cassandra, Karl, Clay, Elena, Jeremy, Jaime, Paige, Lucas, Eve, Kristoff, and of course Adam. Some of them had bigger parts than others, but it was great that they all made an appearence.
thanks for asking.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Savannah Levine is in terrible danger, and for once she's powerless to help herself. At the heartbreaking conclusion of Waking the Witch, Savannah swore that she would give up her powers if it would prevent further pain for a young orphan. Little did she know that someone would take her up on that promise.
And now, witch-hunting assassins, necromancers, half-demons, and rogue witches all seem to be after her. The threat is not just for Savannah; every member of the Otherworld might be at risk. While most of her fellow supernaturals are circling the wagons at a gathering of the council in Miami, Savannah is caught on the road, isolated from those who can protect her and unable to use her vast spell-casting talent, the thing she counts on most. In a story that will change the shape of the Otherworld forever, Armstrong gathers Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jamie, Hope, and other beloved characters, who soon learn that the greatest threat to supernaturals just may come from within.
REVIEW: SPELLBOUND is the second to last storyline in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series.
At the end of Waking The Witch, our heroine Savannah Levine-part witch/part sorceress-all powerful young woman has sacrificed her powers to save a young child, and now Savannah must make her way through a haunted world of demons, werewolves, clairvoyants and an end of the world prophecy foretold from her birth to the birth of werewolf twins and more.
We learn more about a group of people seeking immortality and using the supernatural’s to get what they want. But immortality comes at a price and Savannah and the others will be the ultimate prize in the quest for –forever.Read more ›
We get to see lots more of the other characters from the Otherworld series in Spell Bound, as they're all required in this fight against a new problem. An organization wants to expose the supernaturals, and it's up to the Council members to stop them.
Lots of great action, killer suspense and dead-on humour. Spell Bound kept me up all night. Can't wait for Thirteen!
