From Canada's new queen of suspense, another hugely entertaining supernatural thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Prepare to be enchanted . . .

Forget the cackling green hag in The Wizard of Oz , forget Samantha from Bewitched . Real witches are nothing, NOTHING like this. For years real witches have hidden their powers, afraid of being persecuted. They have integrated so well into the community, you could have a witch living right next door and never know about it. Take Paige, for instance, whom we first met in Kelley Armstrong's novel Stolen . Just an ordinary twenty-something who runs her own website design company, worries about her weight and wonders if she'll ever find a boyfriend. Okay, so she's leader of the American Coven and guardian of Savannah, the teenage daughter of a black witch. Really, life is ordinary. But then a telekinetic half-demon, Leah O'Donnell, shows up to fight for custody of Savannah. And although Paige is ready for her, she's not quite so prepared for the team of supernaturals that Leah brings with her, including a powerful sorcerer who claims to be Savannah's father.

When all hell breaks loose -- literally -- and Paige is accused of witchcraft, Satanism and murder, the Coven, fearing exposure, abandons her. Cut off from her friends, Paige is forced against her better judgment to accept the help of a young sorcerer lawyer. And she quickly comes to realize that keeping Savannah could mean losing everything else.

Breathtakingly thrilling, hip and funny, this new novel is another page-turning triumph from an author who is going from strength to strength.

Love, love, love the series. Gained a liking for Paige in this one, as I hated her in the previous book...but I do find her to be a tad boring. It seems like her character became boring or a different personality from the one we saw when Elena first met her. I've finished the entire series (waiting for Spell Bound at this point) and in each one that Paige and Lucas are in, although I really do like them both, I just can't help but to find them both a tad boring. Mind you I did enjoy reading about their wedding in 'Tales of the Otherworld.' I do also like that Lucas' father seems to adore Paige even though she is a witch and he a sorcerer (which are not supposed to mix) - I can't help but wonder if its all a front and he's just humoring Lucas in an attempt to win him over as heir of their Cortez Cabal empire and if we'll see his father's true colours at some point in future books - although I would hate to learn that he never liked Paige, the possibility for that storyline certainly exists.
