I absolutely adore Paige and identify with her purely.
If you haven’t read the first two books of this series, you need to turn that little butt right around and march to your library and check out Elena’s books Bitten and Stolen. Even though these stories are not always told by the same person, there is a flow to them. Like, for example, Paige and Savannah were not only introduced in the second book, Stolen, but they also rely heavily on the set up into this story.
Paige is a young twenty-something witch who is taking care of a tween named Savannah. Both of their mother’s died (reasons in the last book, Stolen) and they are constantly trying to make it work.
Well, here comes a Volo (telekinetic) half-demon cop named Leah who just really wants Savannah for some reason. Seriously I don’t know why she is so bent out of shape about her. She wants custody over the girl. But she isn’t a relative or anything.
In order to lay her claim, Leah goes and finds Savannah’s dad. For some reason she believes that it is a sorcerer who is a big bad business lawyer, Nast Cabal. The Cabal thing is just too much for me to explain for you. It’s kind of like Wolfram and Hart (TV show Angel, Buffyverse) except they are all sorcerers and family members? There are different branches for each family? You’ll have to read to find out exactly who they are.
There are satanic rituals, house burnings, running from the police, grave digging, conjuring demons, unexplained deaths and the dead walking in this book. The story itself is literally the most entertaining thing. You won’t get bored.
Now, the writing on the other hand… is literally better. Armstrong does not disappoint when it comes to writing in a way that makes you laugh and makes you feel for the characters she wants you to. Paige is nothing like Elena, yet she is everything and more. I love Elena and Paige for different reasons and I am happy that more than one character has been the center of a book.
Not to mention Lucas is 100% legit.
Get into this series if you like risky things, gore, horror, supernatural, twist, and nonstop wonderfulness.
