SPELLBOUND (Women of the Otherworld #12) by Kelley Armstrong
February is the 12 month in Moonlightgleam’s WOMEN OF THE OTHERWORLD reading challenge. This month’s challenge is SPELLBOUND by Kelley Armstrong.
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.
And finally, there is a hint of a romance between Savannah and Adam-a love story that has been building since STOLEN (the second storyline in the series where Adam helped rescue a twelve year old Savannah from Ty Winsloe’s compound of collected supernatural species). Fans of Kelley Armstrong have known this love story has been ten years in the making-ten long years (in story time) for some-but finally will be coming to its natural conclusion in Thirteen-the final book in Kelley’s WOTO series.
