Book Review: Spell Bound

At last, in the novel every Kelley Armstrong fan will need to own, all the major heroines and heroes of Otherworld are united. 

It's been ten years since Bitten, the first novel in Kelley Armstrong's New York Times bestselling Otherworld series. In that time hundreds of thousands of fans have ravenously devoured the adventures of Armstrong's witches, demons, and werewolves. Now, in Spell Bound, she brings them all together for her most sweeping tale yet. 

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.

I have been a fan of The Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong since I found Bitten and Stolen on the shelves of my local Borders in 2003. She is my favorite author, and this my favorite series. Everyone should read this series. It’s amazing! So I felt particularly lucky to snag an ARC of Spell Bound.

The next book, 13, will be the final book of the series, and Spell Bound is mostly about setting it up. But it’s still fabulous. As the series has progressed, the cast has gotten larger. And with the changing points of view, we’ve gotten to know each of the female main characters very well. And in Savannah’s story, it pulls all of the characters we know and love together.

Something big is going to happen, and it may change their world forever. Now is definitely the time to pick this series up if you haven’t already. Only one year until this series is concluded. But be sure to check out Kelley Armstrong’s site for info on short story, novella, and graphic novel information! And follow her on Twitter.

Amazing! I can't wait to get my hands on it! Ah Setting up for the end.

If anything happens to Paige I am going to lose it.
