Review: Spellbound by Kelley Armstrong

Spell Bound (Women of the Otherworld #12)Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Waking the Witch and Spell Bound should truly be read back to back. In fact, they should be read with 13 on hand, almost as a trilogy within the series.

At the end of Waking the Witch, Savannah silently thought that if it would reunite an orphan with her grandmother, Savannah would gladly give up her powers. Something heard her and took her up on that unintended deal, and she finds herself powerless for the first time in her life.

Savannah has always been so very powerful that she has counted on her spells more than most witches or sorcerors do, so she finds living without them to be very difficult — especially since a witch hunter and others are after her. There’s a Supernatural Liberation Movement that wants to use her as one of its figureheads, with or without her cooperation, in their quest to bring supernaturals out of the closet and into the spotlight. She has to do some serious soul-searching and growth in the process of avoiding enemies and getting creative about staying alive.

The plot moves extremely quickly, so much so that I couldn’t keep track of what day it was in the book. In fact, it moves right into the plot of 13. I’m having fits because I don’t have it on hand, and I just can’t wait for the library to get around to me on the hold list — I might have to break down and buy it instead.
