The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns with a rollicking new novel in her Otherworld series.

At twenty-one, Savannah Levine—orphaned daughter of a notorious dark witch and an equally notorious cutthroat sorcerer—considers herself a full-fledged member of the otherworld. The once rebellious teen has grown into a six-foot-tall, motorcycle-riding jaw-dropper, with an impressive knowledge of and ability to perform spells. The only problem is, she’s having a hard time convincing her adoptive parents, Paige and Lucas, to take her seriously as an adult. She’s working as the research assistant at the detective agency they founded, and when they take off on a romantic vacation alone, leaving her in charge, Savannah finds herself itching for a case to call her own. (She’s also itching for Adam, her longtime friend and colleague, to see her as more than just a little girl, but that’s another matter.)

Suddenly, Savannah gets the chance she’s been waiting for: Recruited by another supernatural detective, she travels to Columbus, Washington, a small, dying town. Two troubled young women have been found in an abandoned warehouse, murdered. Now a third woman’s dead, and on closer inspection small details point to darker forces at play. Savannah feels certain she can handle the case, but with signs of supernatural activity appearing at every turn, things quickly become more serious—and far more dangerous—than she realizes.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marla | 2/19/2014

    " Oh Savannah. You should know to be careful what you wish for. As I said in my updates, it was hard to get past Johanna Parker as another character, especially another supernatural one. But once I did Waking the Witch proved to be another great installment in The Women of the Underworld. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhiannon | 2/13/2014

    " Has to be my favorite book in the series so far - would give it 50 stars if I could! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 2/10/2014

    " This one was a disjointed story. I didn't believe in the characters and it didn't make a lot of sense. Couple that with a big cliffhanger and no sense of finish, and this was a disappointing book. Too bad. I really like the books that deal with the werewolves but the books with witches just don't seem as well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danniella Duff | 1/29/2014

    " Ended with a bit of a cliffhanger. Whoa, Kelley Armstrong, you've never done that to us before. What a tricksy thing to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Basil | 1/21/2014

    " Great story! Savannah is a pistol -- no less of what I'd expected of her -- and her boundless self-confidence is, believably, both an asset and a hindrance to her. Great addition to the series... although... wtf ending?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/20/2014

    " Another fun Women of the Otherworld entry. This one focusing on Savannah as she works on her first solo case. Quick pacing, good characters. "

    " I picked up the book no realizing it was a series and really enjoyed the characters and how the story weaved it way to the end. Now going back to read the series from the beginning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 11/9/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 11/6/2012

    " I would have given it another star if there had been more/any sexy times. As it was a solid PI mystery with some supernatural twists and turns. We'll see how the next book goes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 5/21/2012

    " Savannah is all on her own in this one. She is now 21 and is pulled into an investigation that leads her to a cliff hanger. Can't wait for the next book, and I hope Armstrong picks up where she left off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 12/6/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheryl | 5/25/2011

    " Well-paced, nonstop action and angst that kept me reading until I finished. The characters are believable, not over-the-top stereotypes. The plot lead me on a madcap chase leaving me with clues and a triple who did who. Colorful and a heroine who is down to Earth, and scary good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Blaise | 5/22/2011

    " This one is kind of weak, but I liked the style, so looked at some of her other books and liked them a lot better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L.J. | 5/7/2011

    " I'll definitely be looking for more books in this series. It was a page turner for me, but in a different way. I could put it down for a bit, but then had to get back to it within a short period of time. Very well done, as Armstrong is a gifted story teller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee | 4/30/2011

    " As always, a great YA novel. I would have enjoyed more of the wolf characters, but this is entirely a Savannah novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 4/23/2011
