From one of today’s most original writers comes the mesmerizing tale of an exceptional young woman caught up in an otherworldly realm where some will stop at nothing to get what they want.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.

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.
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 ...
I read No Humans Involved before I decided to start the whole series. Although I loved Dime Store Magic, I felt it didn't show as much control and careful planning as Armstrong's later books have, but I still loved it and enjoyed it to the very last page. As always, I couldn't put it down.
