On the surface, Dime Store Magic hinges on a common domestic situation. Typically rebellious teen Savannah is constantly butting heads with protective guardian mother Paige Winterbourne. But the standard teen traumas pale in comparison to Savannah's difficulties. To begin with, her mother Eve, a black witch, was murdered, and now evil telekinetic half-demon Leah O'Donnell is trying to gain custody of her, by means fair or foul. Standing in Leah's way is Paige, a rather typical twentysomething entrepreneur, trying to come to terms with this motherhood thing--that, and her status as leader of the American Coven. Welcome to East Falls, a sleepy small town outside Boston that turns out to be a hotbed of occult activity. Dime Store Magic is a thoroughly entertaining supernatural thriller. Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dime Store Magic features a contemporary setting and outwardly normal characters. This device provides scope for humour and social satire, and Kelley Armstrong proves adept at both. For instance, there's Savannah's observation that "all the best sorcerers are lawyers. Well, until they get older and become politicians." In fact, a young sorcerer lawyer, Luis Cortez, becomes Paige's and Savannah's best ally in the fight against the evil forces terrorising them. In Dime Store Magic, the third in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series, following Bitten and Stolen, she displays a nice ear for dialogue, an imaginative way of describing the differing characteristics of witches, demons and sorcerers, and skill in piling on the suspense, which adds up to one fun read. --Kerry Doole, Amazon.ca

1.5 DNF - I should have known.
I didn't really like Paige in the second installments of the Otherworld series (arrogance meet stupid and her colleague weakness), but I thought that might have been due to Elena being such a cool heroine, so I decided to give Paige a chance. But nope. I got really impatient with her - not a goo...

0.0 Review: Dime Store Magic by Kelly Armstrong
Yeah, I am giving this book zero stars. I couldn't find more ineptitude in both writing and the story/characters if I tried. This is my first and last book from Kelly Armstrong. Paige is the MC and she is an utterly crapastic moron. She is only the leader of the North American Coven because she in...

Listening to this for the first time. Narration is much better than books one and two. This narrator does many of books going forward, which I'm excited about.

5.0 Dime Store Magic (Women of the Otherworld)
Dime Store Magic was my introduction to Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series told in first person by various female characters. I didn't feel lost even though I hadn't read the two previous books, Bitten and Stolen, although obviously if you start here you'll encounter spoilers for both those ...
