    One thought on “Waking the Witch”

    1. WrensReads Review:I loved Savannah finally getting her own story, don’t get me wrong. But I also thought this story was a little weak for her. She is one of the strongest women written in this series. Ever since she was a kid she gave no craps about anyone and will do whatever the hell she wants to do because that is what she wants to do. I understand that she has grown up and everything like that, but that kind of spunk doesn’t just die. What I am happy about, is that her story isn’t done [...]

    2. Synopsis:The orphaned daughter of a sorcerer and a half-demon, Savannah is a terrifyingly powerful young witch who has never been able to resist the chance to throw her magical weight around. But at 21 she knows she needs to grow up and prove to her guardians, Paige and Lucas, that she can be a responsible member of their supernatural detective agency. So she jumps at the chance to fly solo, investigating the mysterious deaths of three young women in a nearby factory town as a favour to one of t [...]

    3. 2.5 stars, rounded up to a very, very, very generous 3-star rating.Waking The Witch is an installment of the Women of the Otherworld series that I don't see myself ever re-reading. This is sad because I had been looking forward to finally reading a Savannah book for a long time. I remember Savannah a 12-year old spoiled, petulant girl and later a determined, brash, strong, sassy and refreshingly selfish woman and a powerful witch who hates authority, goes after what she wants, can kick ass, desp [...]

    4. Starting with this one, the last three books of the series are primarily told through Savannah's point of view. We've seen her since the second book of the series, Stolen, first as a young girl and now finally as an adult. In Stolen she meets Elena and works her way into the wolf pack as a friend, while she is adopted by Paige for the third and fourth books. Everyone know her name, and now she finally gets to go out on her own for her first investigative case.Savannah isn't as compassionate at f [...]

    5. I really enjoyed Savannah's point of view and the mystery in this one.I do have to say that (view spoiler)[ I guessed that Jesse was involved but would never have guessed he was possessed by Leah way back from the beginning of the series. Nice throwback but it kinda ruined the end for me because there's no way to figure out a mystery like that. I was also very upset about Michael's death, and what happened to Kayla. :( (hide spoiler)]

    6. Hi, I'm a witch blah blah blah energy bolt blah blah motorcycle blah hot guy blah blah blah I'm 21 and super pretty don't you want to be me or do me blah blah blah sacrifice and dead girls blah blah small town blah investigate blah blah more hot guy talk blah blah blah I'm a clever witch, actually, and I solve the crime blah blah motorcycle blah. Get the drift?I can reduce this book to a 2 minute powerpoint presentation in which there are only 3 actual headings for discussion- motorcycle, witche [...]

    7. Savannah, the teenage witch, is no longer a teenager. She's twenty-one and minding the detective agency while her guardians, Paige and Lucas, are on vacation when she gets the opportunity she's been waiting for - a case of her own.I enjoyed Savannah as the narrator in Waking the Witch, and I enjoyed watching the investigation of the possibly ritual linked murders of three young women unfold and watching Savannah pick up clues that the local police have missed. But as the story progresses there a [...]

    8. This is Savannah's book. I was so excited to read it, and it didn't disappoint at all. It was everything I expected from her and more! I don't want to put a spoiler warning on this, so I'll try to be careful not give too much away.At this point, Savannah is 21. She has been working for Paige and Lucas for 5 years, and now they are away on vacation and Adam is away at a conference, and a case comes up that sounds easy and safe enough for her to investigate her first case by herself. She follows J [...]

    9. This is my first time reading a book by Kelley Armstrong. I know, crazy, right? I've had her YA book The Summoning sitting on my bookshelf for four months, and I still haven't gotten around to reading it.I was lucky enough to be offered a chance to review a copy of Waking the Witch, the latest installment in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. I jumped at the chance, thinking that it would finally give me a little needed motivation to try an author that I've been meaning to read for a lo [...]

    10. We first meet Savannah in Stolen, where she is a young witch under Ruth Winterbourne’s guardianship. Savannah has grown up. Savannah is now 21 years old, 6 feet tall, and has inherited her mother’s good looks. Savannah works as an investigator for Paige and Lucas’ agency. While Paige and Lucas are enjoying a Hawaiian vacation, Savannah gets a case and decides to solve it on her own. Someone is murdering young women in a small town. The murders appear to be ritualistic and the list of suspe [...]

    11. I'm a fan of Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series, page-turning paranormal mysteries with romantic elements told from the first person point of view of a female supernatural: a werewolf, witch, angel, necromancer, half-demon In this case it was Savannah Levine, daughter and ward of two previous protagonists. She's a witch and a private investigator. For quite a while I was happily being pulled along by the mystery. Armstrong has a deft style and strong world-building that sucks you [...]

And the big climax brought all the magic I imagined we would get with SavannahIf you're a reader of teh Women of the Otherworld series, definitely grab this one, and if you're new to the series, you won't be lost jumping in with Waking the WitchFun read! :)

    13. A good book is like driving to the beach. It might be the greatest drive everbut if there is no beach at the end you feel let down. I really enjoyed everything about this bookmight have even rated it 5 Stars, but I didn't get the beach so 3 Stars it is.

    14. ‘Waking the Witch’ is the eleventh book in Kelley Armstrong’s ridiculously popular paranormal series, ‘Women of the Otherworld’. It is also the first book to be narrated by long-running, fan-favourite character Savannah Levine.Savannah’s guardians, Paige Winterbourne and Lucas Cortez, are on a much-needed Hawaiian vacation. . . and while away Savannah is in charge of their Private Investigation business. So it happens that when telekinetic-demon and fellow PI, Jesse Aanes, walks thro [...]

    18. I really enjoyed reading from Savanah's pov. I figured out the person who was doing the killing on Savanah's case. Well, the body. I did not know on the little girls mom. I hope we see more of Savanah and Adam budding romance.

    19. I thoroughly enjoyed Savannah's book! I remember being unsure about her as narrator when I first learned she was getting a trilogy to end the series (for now!), but honestly she does some real growing up in this book. While I don't think she's over her prejudice towards humans, I kinda feel like she taken steps towards overcoming it, thanks to Michael, Paula and Kayla. She's also learning to stop running from her problems and to accept help (eventually) instead of insisting on fighting her own b [...]

    20. Well well well, if you are a fan of this series this will not dissappoint. I realise that some reviewers have not been as pleased with this book, it lacks one of the usual elements that accompany this series. The relationship progression that normally occurs for the narrator, which in this case is Savannah - a character we met in the second book of the series "Stolen" she was 12 in that book and is now aged 21. Although, she seems older than her years due to a highly volatile, supernatural life! [...]

    21. CLIFFHANGER ENDING !!!!!!!!!!!! ARGUH NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO ! it was so intense, it was just almost there and then it hit the fan and e end.Crispy Hell, I want to know what happens and I don't have the next book yet.Savannah has grown up to be a big girl with big girl problems and a dark past that haunts her to this day. She gets her first case to solve on her own well kind of on her own men keep popping up. Her lust for Adam is still not going anywhere but her lust for another boy/man is a De [...]

    22. Read the book before and remember not liking it all that match because I didn't like Savannah. She was a spoiled brat when introduced in an earlier book as a 12 year old (now 21 in this book). She has learned since then that her actions have consequences that she may not like and she continues to learn that lesson in this book.The book seemed repetitive running back and forth between one place and another. It was mostly a mystery novel and a paranormal novel second. There's still something that [...]

    23. Savannah is trying a PI case on her own. She runs into a lot of problems & faces a lot of her own demons. Adam is there for support & to jump in a help if needed but she does not want his help. Savannah wants to probe that she can do it on her own.I was pulled into this story. I loved it. I am a little disappointed with the ending because I was left with a cliff hanger which makes me want to jump right into the next book. I know that is the point but I wanted to take a little break from [...]

    24. I honestly don't remember Samantha from previous books (it's been years since I read the earlier ones) so I had no preconceived notions about her and therefore thoroughly enjoyed this book. This book totally departs from the whole werewolf thing and takes on witches and Savannah in particular. I liked it and Savannah, Adam and Kayla. I hope Kayla is someone we see again as I really liked her and hated the way everything ended for her in particular. I'll be hitting the next installment shortly to [...]

    25. Waking the Witchis a mystery with human and supernatural characters. It's part of Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. Savannah is the woman at the center of this book. She is the biological daughter of a powerful witch (now deceased and an angel) and a powerful sorcerer (also deceased), and the adopted daughter of another powerful witch and sorcerer. In previous books Savannah has mostly played the role of the smart, rebellious teenager. Now twenty-one, Savannah is all grown up an [...]

    27. Kelley Armstrong rates as one of my favourite Authors. Anything she writes I will read and not always in the accepted sequence - which drives my niece Tobey buggy but speaks to my old inner rebel. Life seldom happens in an accepted sequence so why should my book reading? Suffice to say that Waking the Witch is a great read, like all of Armstrong's books.

    28. From an ARCKelley Armstrong has been one of my favorite authors ever since I picked up Dimestore Magic. After I read that novel, the next time I went to the bookstore I looked for other novels by her. I had seen the phrase "Women of the Otherworld" on the cover, and that gave me a clue that there might be other booksat, and the page with the other book titles lists. LOL. I found Stolen, Bitten and Industrial Magic. I believe I read them out of order, but since two out of the first four books wer [...]

    29. This review contains spoilers in paragraphs three and four. Be warned!I admit that I put off reading the last three books in this series for ages, due to the fact that I cannot stand the sight of the whiny brat that is Savannah. She caused nothing but grief for Paige with her whiny tantrums and bad behaviour, shows complete ingratitude to anyone who tries to help her and proves incapable of looking after herself on a normal day. So now in this book, Savannah decides to take on her first case, th [...]

    30. Previously Published on my blog: Welcome to Larissa's Bookish Life4.5/5 Stars!I am an unconditional, card holding fan of this series and Kelley Armstrong is no doubt an automatic buy for me. Of course, it’s not a perfect series and there are couple books that aren’t my favorites But, 11 books and 2 anthologies in, I have to say it is a pretty solid and awesome series in general.We meet Savannah in the second book, Stolen, when she’s only 12 years old. For the following two books, Dime Stor [...]
