With her guardians on vacation, Savannah, a young witch, is minding the detective agency on her own. She’s not to take any unnecessary risks, but can’t pass up the opportunity to take the lead on a case of ritualistic murder. As the body count rises, Savannah is put to the test and the case almost proves too much to handle. The story is an enjoyable blend of urban fantasy and mystery with a touch of romantic tension. Kelley Armstrong does a good job of introducing a new view point into her Women of the Otherworld series. (Submitted by Courtney)

Detective procedural with supernatural overtones. Part of a series, this does not inspire me to try the rest. Pedestrian.

A fun read that clipped along at a good pace; although, apparently I have a lot of catching up to do with the previous books in this series, since this is the first Kelley Armstrong book that I've read.

Great a usual, can't say enough about Kelley Armstrong. If you haven't read this yet Read it, and then read Spellbound right after, the two sort of go together.

I enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read "Spellbound". Kelley Armstrong pleases me once again! The adventures of Savannah and her friends continue!

this book was okay. the beginning was slow, but it was really interesting near the end.
as always, Kelley Armstrong's books are really entertaining to read.

Another great book from Kelley Armstrong, this time, focused on Savannah. Shorter than her usual output.

In true Armstrong fashion, this book was quickly paced, with one bit of action following another hot on its heels. I particularly admired the many twists in this story, I was legitimately surprised almost the entire way. As mentioned by another commentator, the ending was very suspenseful, and I imagine Ms. Armstrong has another Savannah-centric novel coming out before long...well worth the read, and will leave you pining for more. :)

Nice to see Savannah all grown up. I like Kelley Armstrong and have been a fan since the beginning... I really disliked the ending of this book, very cliffhangerish.... and unlike KLA.
