DIME STORE MAGIC by Kelley Armstrong
About DIME STORE MAGIC (taken from goodreads.com)
Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world’s most powerful elite organizations- the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige’s wildest antics can’t hold a candle to those of her new charge- an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil… and evil is all too willing to claim her. For this girl is being pursued by a dark faction of the supernatural underworld. They are a vicious group who will do anything to woo the young, malleable, and extremely powerful neophyte, including commit murder- and frame Paige for the crime. It’s an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive.
Review of DIME STORE MAGIC
Not gonna lie I was really nervous starting this book. I love Elena and I didn’t want to read about anyone else. Plus in the first books I hated Paige. A lot. Thank god Kelley Armstrong is amazing because I loved this book as much as the others. Paige does take some getting used to but then you read about her story and you start to feel bad. No wonder she’s so clueless sometimes! Her little witch coven is crazy. I’m actually really glad we got to read about Paige. And then Luke comes in. I didn’t think I’d find him attractive but do I ever! Savannah was great too. I felt so bad for her! I just loved all the character as much as the characters in the first two books. Kelley just has this way of making you love everybody even if you wouldn’t normally like them in real life. I like how real they are too. Everyone complains about Paige being stubborn sometimes but that’s how people are! She’s really brave and determined to and those aren’t bad things.
The plot is fantastic as well. Instead of learning about the werewolves we get to learn about the witches and boy are they crazy! I think the werewolves are less scary then that coven. I loved that there was action and a bit of romance but it wasn’t a fluffy book. When something happened there wasn’t a magic wand that fixed everything. There were some really crazy parts! Paige is much more brave than I give her credit for.
Basically, everyone needs to read this book. Once you’re finished you’ll be thinking why have I not read this before! It’ll change your entire reading experience!
