Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's Savannah Levine's first solo investigation, and of course it's not going to be easy. Between the suspect trying to kill her, the other suspect lying to her, someone trying to sabotage her magic, and an old nemesis using the whole situation to try to kill her, Savannah's got her hands full. But she's nothing if not resourceful, and it takes a lot to shake the daughter of a witch and a sorcerer.
I love that we've gotten a book from Savannah's perspective. She's one of the most interesting characters in the series, and now that she's grown up, she reminds me a lot of Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, only with more people skills--barely. I appreciate that she doesn't just waltz through this investigation, that she makes mistakes and learns about people in the process.
With just enough twists to keep you guessing without making you wonder where the heck THAT just came from, Waking the Witch is a valuable addition to the Women of the Otherworld series and a damn good read.
