Witches, Sorcerers, Vampires, & Werewolves Oh My!

Meet the smart, sexy — supernatural — women of the otherworld. This is not your mother’s coven...

Kelley Armstrong returns with the eagerly awaited follow-up to Dime Store Magic. Paige Winterbourne, a headstrong young woman haunted by a dark legacy, is now put to the ultimate test as she fights to save innocents from the most insidious evil of all...

In the aftermath of her mother’s murder, Paige broke with the elite, ultraconservative American Coven of Witches. Now her goal is to start a new Coven for a new generation. But while Paige pitches her vision to uptight thirty-something witches in business suits, a more urgent matter commands her attention.

Someone is murdering the teenage offspring of the underworld’s most influential Cabals — a circle of families that makes the mob look like amateurs. And none is more powerful than the Cortez Cabal, a faction Paige is intimately acquainted with. Lucas Cortez, the rebel son and unwilling heir, is none other than her boyfriend. But love isn’t blind, and Paige has her eyes wide open as she is drawn into a hunt for an unnatural-born killer. Pitted against shamans, demons, and goons, it’s a battle chilling enough to make a wild young woman grow up in a hurry. If she gets the chance.

Title: Industrial Magic
Series: Women of the Otherworld, Book 4
Published: September 2, 2004
Publisher: Bantam Books
Pages: 496
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Industrial Magic is the fourth book in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series and it is the second book narrated by the witch Paige. She’s grown up quite a bit since I first met her in Stolen (the second book in the series). In that book I couldn’t stand her, then in each subsequent novel I grew to tolerate and now even to like her! She isn’t my favorite female from the Otherworld (the werewolf Elena holds that title) but she is pretty great.

When I finished Dime Store Magic I had a hard time getting my hands on Industrial Magic and when I finally did get the book I was deeply immersed in another series. Thankfully one of my online book groups (Witch Novels- now deleted) was reading it this month so I decided I would restart the series. And what a great book to re-start the series with! I remember being a bit worried about Paige, Lucas, and Savannah in the last book because Paige’s life as she knew it has literally went up in flames but she’s a trouper and she pulls through in this novel.
