Praise for kelley armstrong. AND Dime Store Magic. Armstrong must have decided one day to throw every genre she could imagine-mystery, horror, supernatural thriller, romance and chick-lit-into her writerly cauldron.

Praise for kelley armstrong. What she conjured up is the hilariously hip Women of the Otherworld series.

Dime Store Magic book. See a Problem? We’d love your help.

Dime Store Magic is the third book in author, Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. I think Armstrong did a good job with her rich and descriptive writing. Her world building was impeccable and easily digested. She doesn't make things more difficult than they have to be. It is written in a narrative first person point of view of Paige Winterbourne, leader of the North American Coven of witches. If you’ve read the other two books before this, you will have met Paige for the first time in Stolen.

Then I brought out my Coven grimoire and spell-casting journals, and ushered Cortez into the living room. With his help, I moved the coffee table aside. Then I settled onto the carpet, cross-legged. He nodded and sat across from me. "This is all I've got," I said, laying out my grimoire and journals. Well, all that works, anyway. These are the Coven-approved spells, and in my journals I've written down a few others that I picked up. I may not have what you're looking fo.

Dime Store Magic Audiobook Kelley Armstrong.

Author: Kelley Armstrong. Forget nude-dancing Wiccans, forget Samantha from ‘Bewitched’, forget the cackling green hag in the Wizard of Oz. 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.

“Dime Store Magic” is the third book in author, Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. It is written in a narrative first person point of view of Paige Winterbourne, leader of the North American Coven of witches. If you’ve read the other two books before this, you will have met Paige for the first time in “Stolen.” In fact, many of the characters in this book were introduced in book two.

This story picks up where “Stolen” left off. Paige takes Savannah, a powerful teenage witch, as her charge. It is her duty to protect Savannah and keep her from Cabals and black magic witches. This proves to be a difficult feat for Paige because Savannah’s father is a Sorcerer and leader of one the most dangerous Cabals on the West Coast. Nast, Savannah’s father employs the help of a telekinetic half-demon Leah, also introduced in book two, to retrieve Savannah and bring her to his Cabal.

Paige finds herself battling a legal custody case, sorcerers, black magic, media, and her own coven whilst protecting Savannah. She and Savannah, forced to align themselves with an unlikely ally – battle against all odds with an attorney/sorcerer named, Lucas Cortez.
As I read through this book, I found Paige to be very naïve and incredibly boring, albeit, she has strong morals and has potential to be a strong witch. Sadly, I think having Paige’s mother in this story would have added some substance to this story. Paige, knowingly, was not ready to be a stand in mother for Savannah. She was ill-prepared for the job. Paige really came across as a teen not much older than Savannah, to me.

This whole story, although well written, just seemed to lack substance. It was mostly a battle of wits and sure luck. I suppose I expected something more… like maybe Paige finding her magic deep within herself. I also thought there would be more romance in this story. Maybe half a chapter toward the end had a roll in the… uh… laundry. There was no build up to it. In fact, Lucas Cortez repulsed Paige! Then you turn the page to the next chapter and they’re rolling in the laundry. Sorry, but that seemed contrived at best.

In the end, Savannah and Paige, with Lucas’ help (the good), beat Nast and his minions (the bad), saving our heroes to live happily ever after.

As stated, the author writes well, develops the characters reasonably well, but the story just seemed bland to me. I think reading it is important if you’ve started the series, but truthfully, I don’t think you need any of the back story to get through this one. The wolves from “Bitten” and “Stolen” are not in this story, except for a phone call. That’s it. However, it is a great book to fill the need to read between other stories that you’re waiting for authors to publish.

The Good
I enjoyed watching Paige's life slowly spiral down hill (I'm not a sadist, I just thought the drama was funny). Nothing seemed to go right and everyone was pretty much against her. Add a reckless and powerful teenager into the mix, and things only get worse. Savannah was an interesting character. Naive, audacious, but trying to be good despite her history and familial connections. She was also the main reason for Paige's new disastrous life. Leah, supposedly Savannah's father, wants full custody of his daughter, but Paige knows something is wrong with him. And she's right. Leah and his many underlings were pretty frightening. They could do real damage with just one phone call or flick of a finger. I was anxious most of the time to see how Paige was going to win against such an evil, powerful opponent.

Watching Paige and Lucas butt heads was pretty fun. I like how Lucas just inserts himself into Paige's life with little explanation. Their back and forth and constant bickering was hilarious. I found their relationship adorable overall.

Armstrong really went all out with the history and background of magic, witches, and sorcery. I always find an author's unique version of supernatural things captivating to read. I think Armstrong did a good job with her rich and descriptive writing. Her world building was impeccable and easily digested. She doesn't make things more difficult than they have to be. She knows what she's doing.

The Bad
The first half of the book barely held my attention. Getting to the real action and supernatural happenings took forever. I don't care for reading about mundane, everyday proceedings. I found myself able to put the book down very easily.

Paige was a somewhat weak character. She was naive, rude, and annoying. I didn't care much for what happened to her. Savannah may have been a brat, but at least she had the excuse of being thirteen years old.

The Snuggly
We get one sex scene that is more about foreplay than actual intercourse. The romance between Paige and Lucas was slow building but lacked the passion I was hoping for.

Overall
If it wasn't for Armstrong's amazing first two books, Bitten and Stolen, maybe I would have liked this book more. But when comparing them to Dime Store Magic, this book just didn't hit the mark. But I can't deny the book got substantially better halfway through. Recommended for those who want to continue this series and need to be introduced to Savannah to understand the rest of the series.

"Mind if I give you hiccups?" I asked Cortez.

"What?"

"Hiccups. I need to give you a case of hiccups. Is that okay?"

"I can't say I've ever had a girl offer to give me that."
