109 – Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong

This is another book that was given to me by my co-worker who has an Audible account.  The both of us enjoy listening to books while at work since we have desk jobs and are easily able to get our work done while getting entrenched in a book.  After pulling up the information about this book on Goodreads, I noticed it was a trilogy (I’m just starting the second one today) that’s in the middle of a larger series.  The series, Women of the Otherworld, is one I’d never read before, but I was assured these three books can easily stand on their own.  So, here’s the Goodreads summary for this book.

“At twenty-one, Savannah Levine-orphaned daughter of a notorious dark witch and an equally notorious cutthroat sorcerer-considers herself a full-fledged member of the otherworld. The once rebellious teen has grown into a six-foot-tall, motorcycle-riding jaw-dropper, with an impressive knowledge of and ability to perform spells. The only problem is, she’s having a hard time convincing her adoptive parents, Paige and Lucas, to take her seriously as an adult. She’s working as the research assistant at the detective agency they founded, and when they take off on a romantic vacation alone, leaving her in charge, Savannah finds herself itching for a case to call her own. (She’s also itching for Adam, her longtime friend and colleague, to see her as more than just a little girl, but that’s another matter.)

Suddenly, Savannah gets the chance she’s been waiting for: Recruited by another supernatural detective, she travels to Columbus, Washington, a small, dying town. Two troubled young women have been found in an abandoned warehouse, murdered. Now a third woman’s dead, and on closer inspection small details point to darker forces at play. Savannah feels certain she can handle the case, but with signs of supernatural activity appearing at every turn, things quickly become more serious- and far more dangerous-than she realizes.”

I liked this book well enough. The story kept me intrigued and I was surprised by how the murders actually happened and who did them. With that cliffhanger of an ending, I’m glad I have the next book to start listening to.

This isn’t my favorite book by any means, but I can listen to it and it will help pass the time while at work.  If you’re a fan of paranormal, you’d most likely enjoy this book.
