Series Women of the Otherworld 11

The orphaned daughter of a sorcerer and a half-demon, Savannah is a terrifyingly powerful young witch who has never been able to resist the chance to throw her magical weight around. But at 21 she knows she needs to grow up and prove to her guardians, Paige and Lucas, that she can be a responsible member of their supernatural detective agency. So she jumps at the chance to fly solo, investigating the mysterious deaths of three young women in a nearby factory town as a favor to one of the agency's associates. At first glance, the murders look garden-variety human, but on closer inspection signs point to otherworldly stakes.

Soon Savannah is in over her head. She's run off the road and nearly killed, haunted by a mystery stalker, and freaked out when the brother of one of the dead women is murdered when he tries to investigate the crime. To complicate things, something weird is happening to her powers. Pitted against shamans, demons, a voodoo-inflected cult and garden-variety goons, Savannah has to fight to ensure her first case isn't her last. And she also has to ask for help, perhaps the hardest lesson she's ever had to learn.

I picked this book up because Series (bestest one EVER)

What I liked the Most? Savannah’s development

What I liked the Least? Too short

Review: The narrator for this installment is Savannah – sassy, arrogant, young, powerful, headstrong, tenderhearted – Savannah and this was possibly my favorite installment! Savannah young, her age coupled with her headstrong attitude make her “human”. What I liked about her was her strength and her soft spots. Sometimes she underestimates her strength, and other times she is over confident. She is vulnerable to kids with crappy or neglectful parents because of her past. She thinks she is more mature than she is and makes some rash decisions that backfire on her.

Recommended to: Fans of the series

Best Quote: “Blame male sorcerers. Or maybe just males in general. Inquisitors, judges, hangmen ... they were all male.”
