Industrial Magic

Title; Industrial Magic
Author; Kelley Armstrong
Page count; 528
Why I read it; 4th book in Women of The Otherworld series
Grade A

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.

My Review;
Another great book by Kelley Armstrong. I loved the whole book! I was so glad that Elena and Clay and Jeremy were in this book it was like hearing from old friends. Lucas is such a great character and although Paige won't ever be my favorite character in these books she did grow on me. Savannah's character is so funny and Kelley Armstrong really knows how 13 year old girls think and act. I like Lucas's dad a lot too and I like how Lucas learned that the best way to deal with his dad was to listen and not argue but not do everything his dad says either, I think thats how a lot lot of adults have to deal with their parents. There were only a few things in the book that bugged me like the ending was a little drawn out. They find Edward and lose him too many times the last 80 pages or so which kind of kills the suspense a little at the end when they actually do catch up to him. I would much rather a long drawn out ending than an abrupt rushed ending though so it's not a major complaint. The next thing that bugged me was every time they eat or drink anything it gives way to much detail about what they order. And lastly there is way too much mention about how much Paige likes lingerie, otherwise an fantastic book. This is really a fun series to read if you like fantasy, magical, funny, intense, original stories. I am confused by the cover of the book, I can't tell how it relates to anything in the story, minor detail though because despite the random cover it's a great read.
