Currently Reading - Spellbound (An Otherworld Novel) by Kelley Armstrong

Savannah Levine is in terrible danger, and for once she’s powerless to help herself. At the heartbreaking conclusion of Waking the Witch, Savannah swore that she would give up her powers if it would prevent further pain for a young orphan. Little did she know that someone would take her up on that promise. And now, witch-hunting assassins, necromancers, half-demons, and rogue witches all seem to be after her. The threat is not just for Savannah; every member of the Otherworld might be at risk. While most of her fellow supernaturals are circling the wagons at a gathering of the council in Miami, Savannah is caught on the road, isolated from those who can protect her and unable to use her vast spell-casting talent, the thing she counts on most. In a story that will change the shape of the Otherworld forever, Armstrong gathers Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jamie, Hope, and other beloved characters, who soon learn that the greatest threat to supernaturals just may come from within.

Before  I start, in case this becomes a regular thing on the blog, I'm not a book critic, I've never written a book review before, and I tend to love everything I read.
This book is part of Kelley Armstrong's epically long running and amazing Otherworld Novels, 14 altogether I believe.  I've read them all, this series is by far my favorite book series along with The Hunger Games trilogy. Made up of 12 books all written from women of the otherworlds point of view, a werewolf, witches, demons and more. The other two books are a mix of characters.
Spellbound is written, along with it previous partner Watching the Witch from Savannah Levine's point view. Savannah is overtly powerful witch, and one of my favorite characters from the series. Whereas the previous book was much more about instigation, crime solving and politics, this book is about dealing with the consequences of these. Spellbound pulls together all the choice Savannah has made in all the pervious books, which is why I loved this book so much, it made it really intresting to read.
At the end of Waking the Witch Savannah lost her powers, her made a wishing saying she would give up all her powers in order to save a young girl, steaming from heavy helping of guilt (Which I think was unwarranted, but I'm just dead inside). She doesn't tell her wards about losing her power but does tell Adam, her partner and in crime and object of her affection, they've been dancing around one another since she was 16. However, things finally come to a head between them at the end of the book after some arguments, falling outs and dangerous situations. I actually squealed when they the kissed, I'd been wanting it for many moons (Did i actually just write that?!).

At the end of the last book Savannah discovers she is being hunted down by a witch hunter, who aims to kill her (Duh). She find the witch hunter has ties to some wing-nut shadowy PRO-witch organization, hell bent on exposing supernaturals and taking their powers.

This book is about tying up everything from Savannahs choice, and her past. Re-uniting the family and friends from all the previous books in the process. I was a little worried after reading Waking the Witch as to where Kelley was taking it, but I shouldn't have worried! It's building up to something big and I cannot wait for the next book! 

So, I loved it, loved it, lovered it!

If you want more books reviews, let know, or if you want to know more about this series give us a shout and I'll get a post up about it.
