Review: "Waking The Witch" by Kelley Armstrong

Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong is about a 21 year old real Witch, Savannah. She is a Private Investigator working her first solo case solving three murders of young girls in a small town. While investigating, she uncovers a small group of practicing witches, a witch hunter, more people are murdered around her, and much more excitement, drama, and adventure occur.

I really, really enjoyed this book. From the first chapter I was interested and I read through it in 1 ½ days because I could hardly put it down. I was invested in Savannah immediately and several of the others, including Kayla, the daughter of one of the murder victims, who takes a central role throughout the novel. Waking the Witch is definitely in the fantasy genre, as it features witches, sorcerers, and more. It is very well-written, Armstrong is definitely an established writer and has made her way into my top 3 authors along with Dean Koontz and Charlaine Harris.

Waking the Witch is the eleventh book in the Otherworld Book Series, featuring unusual heroes of the Otherworld. I have not read the previous ten books, but was not lost picking up at number eleven. That said, I’ve already put the first 3 books of the series on hold at my library because I really liked this novel and would like to start from the beginning of the series. I highly recommend this novel if you’re into fantasy reading. It is worth buying, undoubtedly.
