    Just finished this very early ARC of Spell Bound and I truly hope it will be worked on some more. For now my thoughts are: this installment is rather messy and anticlimactic. The novel starts with Savannah and Adam investigating the loss of Savannah's spell-casting powers and learning more about witch-hunters introduced in Waking The Witch. Eventually however all the trails lead to something huge, something that puts the whole supernatural community in danger.

For now my thoughts are: this installment is rather messy and anticlimactic. The novel starts with Savannah and Adam investigating the loss of Savannah's spell-casting powers and learning more about witch-hunters introduced in Waking The Witch. Eventually however all the trails lead to something huge, something that puts the whole supernatural community in danger. The thing is, we never actually find out what exactly this danger is. We get to know some villains (there is plenty of them), but we never learn what specifically they are after and how they are planning to achieve this thing they are after. I guess we'll find out in the next book? What Spell Bound is about is quite a bit of sleuthing performed by Adam and Savannah when they follow numerous leads with the help of their numerous friends in numerous places. Spell Bound is one of those Women of the Otherworld books that take a hectic family reunion route. Meaning almost every character from previous books makes a cameo - Clay, Elena, Paige, Lucas, Hope, Karl, Jaime, Jeremy, Cassandra, etc. - they all show up regardless if they are actually needed or not. I normally like such cameos, but here it felt excessive and often unnecessary. If you are invested in Adam/Savannah relationship as much as I am, don't hold your breath. The development is minimal, unfortunately. The couple's interactions are hardly swoon-worthy or even realistic, I would go as far as to call them contrived, especially when it comes to fighting about IDK what or making up. After finishing this 12th book in the series I feel a tad disappointed. There is a lot of running around and gathering of information, but most of the questions remain unanswered, story threads unresolved. Basically, the novel has no solid plot, it is very fragmented and has no real climax. This series has been a favorite of mine for awhile, but it is gradually becoming something like Sookie Stackhouse series. I still enjoy reading the books, they are still entertaining, but they don't truly excite me any more. I particularly miss the hot romances... P.S. I recently found out that the 13th book will be the last in the series. More info here: http://www.kelleyarmstrong.com/forum/...

    3.5 “Stuffing people into boxes is for those who have issues about their own box.” The weakest of the three final Savannah books, it was slapped with a 3.5 rating because of a few issues that can't be shaken. Because the story elements were focused on so heavily, the regular characters came off flat. Being in Savannah's head isn't as unique experience as I'd hoped, but she's a decent heroine.

I wanted to see the kick-ass, ultra powerful witch when we finally got to her viewpoint, but instead the author chose to remove most of her powers to humble her. Would have been cool as a side story but not when she's in the lead. Now she has to depend on other people and not reveal the neat mixture I'm sure is existing in her blood of witch, sorcerer and half-demon. Instead we get the human version who is powerless. Kind of disappointing. As I've said in a few other reviews, I looked forward to finally seeing Adam as large character and love interest. He was amusing and daring in the second book of the series and has been seen little since. He was advertised as having a rare, strong power and a quirky personality. Finally on stage, he comes across rather bland and vanilla. His powers seem to wear out quickly and do one-dimensional shots. Their relationship isn't steamy or strong compared to Elaina/Clay, Paige/Lucas, nor does it have the sweet comfort feel that Jaime/Jeremy do. He bails a little easy and comes across kind of a jerk a few times in the story. The storyline was good but it fizzled a bit because it is more filler material, a bridge between books, building off of the last book but not yet at the final book where the main conflict and resolution will happen. It needs to be read if reading in the order because it shows the continued developments that will finish this series, and you do get other series characters rejoining the battle. Not the best one but definitely good.

    I am buzzing about this book and what it leads up to. Amazing!! Savannah has preceded all other characters and is undoubtedly my new favourite. She is sassy, fun, witty and boy oh boy in love! This book has everything a good book needs, good characters, romance, danger, so thrilling, and a cliffhanger that has me itching for the last book. Book 12 of the series picks off right where we left book 11, it's quite clever actually how Armstrong intermingles the stories.

Book 12 of the series picks off right where we left book 11, it's quite clever actually how Armstrong intermingles the stories. Somehow I have a feeling all books in this series are going to link up to the last one. AH I really need to read it! So much to find out! So putting all the chaotic drama to one side, one of the best parts of this book is the relationship/friendship between Adam and Savannah. I love that this is included, and Armstrong creates an atmosphere that is perfect! I actually feel as though I am in Savannah's head. There is a lot off character building with Savannah in this story and I love how Armstrong does it. If you have not read this series, start from the beginning! The journey these books take you on is brilliant, each one is better than the last! Marvelous writing!

    Really, Armstrong? A cliffhanger ending? BAH! Thankfully I waited until this series was completely to pick it up, so the only wait I'll have is the two other books I need to read before I can pick up the final book in this series. I'll be sad when I'm done. This series has been great! Really, Armstrong? A cliffhanger ending? BAH!

    I loved this book. Loved it so much, in fact, that it may be my very favorite Otherworld book of all time. Yes, I know that's a pretty bold statement. And not everyone will agree. After all, generally the best Otherworld books are Elena books and I'm the first person to say so. But what makes this book so fantastic is that even though Savannah is the narrator, it brings everyone together. Savannah, Adam, Paige, Lucas, Hope, Karl, Elena, Clay, Jeremy, Jamie, Benicio, Troy, Griffin, Sean, Bryce, K I loved this book.

After all, generally the best Otherworld books are Elena books and I'm the first person to say so. But what makes this book so fantastic is that even though Savannah is the narrator, it brings everyone together. Savannah, Adam, Paige, Lucas, Hope, Karl, Elena, Clay, Jeremy, Jamie, Benicio, Troy, Griffin, Sean, Bryce, Kristof, Jaz, Rhys... The only major player missing was Eve (and she did get a mention.) Kelley Armstrong has taken threads from her previous books and woven them together into this awesome creation, like it was some giant master plan all along. The story picks up right where Waking the Witch left off. Savannah is without her powers and she believes it's because she offered to exchange them to right one of the wrongs in the last book. She and Adam investigate and, sure enough, little Kayla and her grandmother have been reunited. But now what? There are witch-hunters still after Savannah and despite her feelings in a moment of weakness, she needs her powers. She and Adam work to figure out how to restore them while sniffing out the witch-hunters and foiling their murderous plans. As if that weren't enough to deal with, there is a group of supernaturals that are pushing to out themselves to the human world. They believe now is the time, because of a prophecy that foretold key events: Savannah's birth, the werewolf twins, Jaz's powers, and the birth of Rhys' clairvoyant grandchild, among others. The group's leaders also have ties to the immortality questers we learned about in Broken. It's all very complicated and conspiracy-theorist and there is still a lot we don't know about them, even as the story ends. --That's right. This story won't reach it's conclusion until the next book... which will also be (**sniff**) the last book in the series. I'm sure that's going to turn a lot of people off, and I'm no fan of cliffhangers, myself. But I like that Armstrong is making this final story epic... to go out with a bang. I'd rather that than some lame rush job, trying to make it all fit in one book. If you're wondering about the romance we were missing in Waking the Witch, (view spoiler)[there is a little bit of progress. We all know that Adam is Savannah's HEA, but they have some serious hurdles to overcome. But... since you clicked the spoiler button, you obviously want to know... we do get one good kiss, which shows we are headed in the right direction. (hide spoiler)] I will miss this series when it's over. Armstrong has created such a rich world for these characters with the wealth of novels and short stories she has written. But I am so impressed that she is pulling them all together for a ending that is fitting and worthy of the characters and stories she has given us. I can't wait to see what happens. 5 stars. *ARC Provided by Dutton

    Really disappointed with this. I've read other books in the series and liked them. I was excited to see Savannah as the lead character here in "Spell bound" but this book was a mess. It started off being about Savannah feeling guilty about whatever happened in the previous book, then some unknown entity stripped her of her witch powers, then there was some bit with her being targeted by a family of witch hunters, followed by her getting kidnapped by a group obsessed with exposing Supernaturals .

It wasn't clear. Then there were the cameos. Armstrong brought in every single character she's created in this series for a 2 paragraph cameo, one right after the other. I lost track of who was who: who was a werewolf, who was what kind of demon. Then there were the backstories and, since we're dealing with Supernatural beings, some of the backstories go back 200 years or more. Yes, I'm sure Cassandra the vampire's fallout with her lover 60 years ago might have been interesting if I weren't already overwhelmed with details about 50 other characters. This was such a great series. It was sad to see it dissolve into a puddle of goo.

    I hate Cliff Hangers. That said, I did like this book. The pacing was good and action packed. Savannah as the narrator is sometimes annoying, but that is a major character trait of hers. The dialog between characters was snappy and engaging. While the story is intense, the sarcastic humor keeps it from becoming too dark. I would have to classify this as more YA urban fantasy, unlike the other additions to Women of the Otherworld.

This book and the previous book have been about Savannah coming of age. The next book should round out her journey. I can forgive this second Cliff Hanger ending (Waking the Witch ended with a Cliff Hanger too) if the third Savannah book finds a resolution or at least Savannah finding some peace with herself. Did I mention I hate Cliff Hangers? I love Women (and Men) of the Otherworld series because of the many characters that have been written about and have shaped this world. Each reader has their favorites, but mine are Elena and Clay, and Jeremy and Jamie. It was nice to see them make brief cameos in this story. Many questions are answered and more are raised concerning the over arcing story line of a confrontation between angles and demons, humans and supernaturals. But even with all the information revealed and some maturing of Savannah, this addition felt like a filler between Waking the Witch and the next book after Spell Bound. I'll wait for this next book, grumpily and impatiently, because I have been dragged over that Cliff and I have to know what happens next.

    Swear to god this book will not let you turn it off, it is that good. What is Savannah known for in all her book? Her ability to cast spells at the drop of a hat. Take that away and what do you think you get? THIS BOOK! It is fast paced it has you hanging on the edge of your seat. You are rooting for her and so much happens it’s fantastic. I loved the whole story, not one part I would change. THE KISS… YES PLEASE!! I want more… we will see what happens in the next one. Again Loved the narration.

Savannah is an adult, yet she still behaves like a self-absorbed and rebellious teenager. The entire premise of the book emerges from the fact that rather than dealing with the consequences of her actions, she throws a temper tantrum and ostensibly repudiates her powers. Moreover, the point from my review of book 11 remains - it is annoying when an author undermines a powerful heroine by nullifying her powers. Surely, there are better ways to create suspense. The plot itself is nothing more than an attempt to include as many characters from previous books within the storyline. There is something nefarious going on in the supernatural world, but it is all very vague and tenuous. The villains are stereotypical and cartoonish rather than truly menacing. The romance is the most disappointing element in the book. Adam and Savannah have absolutely no chemistry and treat each other more like siblings than potential love interests. There is nothing engaging about their conversations, which are completely devoid of the wit and snark that characterizes romances with sizzle and spark. Finally, the book ends on an irritating cliffhanger. At least the last book is already out. Hopefully, it will compensate for the shortcomings of this one.

    This review was posted at Under The Covers I may have a girl crush on Savannah! This is the second book with her as the narrator, and I just love her! I love her personality, her spunk. She starts to do some growing up in this book. First of all, picking up right where Waking the Witch left off, she doesn't have any powers. And this is not the best time to be left without them as she is still dealing with a witch hunter. But that is not the only threat her and Adam are facing in this book. Some of This review was posted at Under The Covers I may have a girl crush on Savannah! This is the second book with her as the narrator, and I just love her! I love her personality, her spunk. She starts to do some growing up in this book. First of all, picking up right where Waking the Witch left off, she doesn't have any powers. And this is not the best time to be left without them as she is still dealing with a witch hunter. But that is not the only threat her and Adam are facing in this book. Some of the previous storylines come back into play (immortality seekers, witch hunters, prophecies), some characters from previous books come back! Almost every character in the series makes an appearance! I don't want to give too much away, but lets just say that while Savannah is struggling to figure out how to regain her powers, she might get kidnapped, again, save a certain vampire, get drunk with a HOT demon on more than one occasion, and struggle with some major things with certain members of her family. I definitely think this book was perfect to tie in lose ends and set up the last book. Yes, Kelley Armstrong has only been contracted to write 13 books, so the next one will be the last as far as we know. *pouts and makes a sad face* But I can tell it'll be amazing! Savannah and Adam? Yes he will be her HEA, but there isn't a whole lot happening between them in this one. We do get one hot and emotional kiss, and a moment that I thought would be promising when they are both drunk and she falls asleep in his lap. Adam is adorable! He cares for Savannah so much, he really shows her he would put her above anything, protect her, take care of her and I can't wait to see them as a couple. Savannah also realizes that she may not treat him with the respect that he deserves. So she has to change her ways. Some of my favorite lines in this book though, came from Cassandra! Who would've thought? I loved her character in this book. I think is so cute that she's dating Aaron again to start with, and that has made her be a little bit more friendly. One of my favorite moments was when she texted Savannah if they really needed to talk to Eloise because she was soooo "O.M.G. I'm so excited to meet a vampire! fangirl". So the final book I think will revolve around a "prophecy" that involves Savannah, Elena's twins, Rhy's grandchild, Jaz. This group we meet in this book thinks that it's time for supernaturals to rule the world. To come out in the open and have humans submit to them. I am really excited to see what happens with this as it seems it will be the final battle.

Savannah does a lot more growing up in this book as well and is now making a conscious effort not to run when things get tough emotionally but to face up to the consequences of her actions and face her fears more.

Savannah does a lot more growing up in this book as well and is now making a conscious effort not to run when things get tough emotionally but to face up to the consequences of her actions and face her fears more. The result is that towards the end I think Adam is looking at her in a different light then normal cause for once she's apologizing to him for how she treats him and actually meaning it, she's refusing to take the easy way out and is insisting on talking properly and hashing through things with him. The other thing I love about this book is we see more of her interactions with Bryce and her thoughts on him. The only time we've really seen her and Bryce together is back in Industrial Magic where he basically blanked her choosing to go with the family stance of 'she's not a Nast' unlike Sean who wanted to reach out and form a relationship with his baby sister. In this book I can see the foundations being set for Bryce and Savannah mending their sibling relationship and actually potentially developing a strong sibling relationship like she has with Sean. Mostly cause Bryce is forced to reach out to Savannah when he's in some really serious trouble and to his surprise she heads straight out to help him. There's also her interactions with Clay and Cassandra which we don't see enough of in previous books! She really respects Clay and I was surprised at just how much his good opinion and respect meant to her, mostly cause she had to work really hard to earn it and she knows how rarely it's given. I love that she gets relationship advice from Clay, espeacially as his response is 'You're asking for relationship advice from the guy who panicked and bit his lover?'! Lol! Her and Cassandra made me laugh as well as Cassandra's method for bringing Savannah out of her funk was to treat her no different then normal but instead to drag her kicking and screaming out of her haze til she's once again making her own cutting remarks back to Cass! To the point Cass is responding 'Ok you can stop feeling better now'. It isn't until this book that you realise how connected to all other Otherworld characters Savannah is but she has a line to all of them, including clairvoyant mercenary Rhys. A great book that begins to bring all the characters together for the finale.

    SPELLBOUND (Women of the Otherworld #12) by Kelley Armstrong ABOUT THE BOOK: 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 SPELLBOUND (Women of the Otherworld #12) by Kelley Armstrong ABOUT THE BOOK: 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. REVIEW: SPELLBOUND is the second to last storyline in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. At the end of Waking The Witch, our heroine Savannah Levine-part witch/part sorceress-all powerful young woman has sacrificed her powers to save a young child, and now Savannah must make her way through a haunted world of demons, werewolves, clairvoyants and an end of the world prophecy foretold from her birth to the birth of werewolf twins and more. We learn more about a group of people seeking immortality and using the supernatural’s to get what they want. But immortality comes at a price and Savannah and the others will be the ultimate prize in the quest for –forever. And finally, there is a hint of a romance between Savannah and Adam-a love story that has been building since STOLEN (the second storyline in the series where Adam helped rescue a twelve year old Savannah from Ty Winsloe’s compound of collected supernatural species). Fans of Kelley Armstrong have known this love story has been ten years in the making-ten long years in story time for some-but finally will be coming to its natural conclusion in Thirteen-the final book in Kelley’s WOTO series. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe.com

Everyone featured in the previous books has to work together to save Savannah and their way of life. I love everything about this book and I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the last book of the series. All of the strange paranormal events are finally coming together as we learn just what exactly is going on in the Otherworld. There’s a group of fanatics who are trying to give normal humans otherworldly powers, and they’ve focused on Savannah as their chance to do that. They’re also trying to convince otherworlders that they shouldn’t have to hide their powers or identities from the outside world, creating a huge problem for those who want to keep it a secret. I love that Savannah has to struggle in this book — she’s super powerful and used to having everything go right for her, but not having her powers not only prevents her from using magic, but it freaks her out and makes her lose confidence in herself. I like that we get to see her vulnerable side and that she becomes more powerful for needing to figure out workarounds. The first books in the series read as one-offs, but everything is starting to come together and mesh beautifully in the end. There are tons of connections that I certainly missed in the previous books, and it looks like there was a rhyme and reason to all the happenings. I love seeing everyone together and getting to see them work with each other rather than read their individual perspectives, like in previous books. I’m guessing the last book is going to be epic once everything is set up. I don’t have any complaints at all about this book. While it’s mostly setting up the finale, there’s still a lot of tension with the protagonists trying to figure out what’s going on with the mysterious new group, with Savannah, and trying to keep everything together. There’s also WONDERFUL tension between Savannah and Adam, with (finally!) a bit of payoff for their relationship, which made me deliriously happy. Also posted on Purple People Readers.

    Wow - what a disappointment! I usually give books from this series 4-5 stars, but this one was just terrible. The story sprawled out of control - there were too many characters in it and none got a decent storyline of their own (well Savannah got plenty of paper, but I wouldn't call her storyline a decent one since it was too preachy and she was too annoying). The supernatural world has gotten so vast and required so many explanations that the story didn't flow well. The Big Bad was a bit too big Wow - what a disappointment!

The Big Bad was a bit too big for me as well - by the time threats of war and world domination are rolled out, a story has usually gone beyond what I can relate to in a fictional world. Sadly, I don't hold out much hope for the next book in the series, since it's obviously going to be a continuation of the same story.

    I have had this book sitting on my shelves for way too long. I LOVE this series, so not reading the final two books is just wrong. So wrong. Anyway, finally got around to it. It is great. Savannah is not my favorite, but she is growing up and has to learn the hard way here. Many of the characters are involved. Things are nuts. Now if I could find my copy of Thirteen, all would be ok. Because I now MUST finish and find out what happens. Enough of this nonsense. Unfortunately, it must be in a pile I have had this book sitting on my shelves for way too long.

Getting a new Armstrong book is a guarantee that you're going to be up all night reading, because you're not going to be able to stop until it's done." -The Parkersburg News and Sentinel With reviews like this, I was eager to jump into this book and immerse myself in the world the author had created, even though I hadn't read any previous books in the series. I was hoping it was one of those books that could be read as a stand-alone, and while some might consider that to be the case, I was just...lost. I felt like I had stepped into the middle of a conversation at a party where everyone knew each other except me. The book was filled with references to people and storylines from previous books, which made me wonder several times whether or not I should finish reading this book. Still, something kept me going and before I knew it, I had finished the book. One thing in its favor is that it's a fast read. If it wasn't, I probably would have given up on it because like I said, I was lost in a conversation I knew little about and felt like I was desperately trying to play catch up. Setting aside the fact that this is part of a very long series (this is book number 12), there were things to recommend it for hardcore paranormal/urban fantasy fans. A kickass heroine, a hero who's loyal to a fault, but still very alpha, a cast of supernatural characters stirring up trouble. All the stuff you'd need or want in a book of this type, right? Pretty much. I was disappointed that the romantic elements weren't played up that much. In fact, they were written like an after-thought to the point that I began to wonder how these two characters found themselves in a relationship. And when they did, it was just kind of...meh. No sparks whatsoever, nothing to sigh for or make the reader root for them to be together. But since I didn't read any previous books in the series, I don't know whether this is just the way the author writes her romances or if they are just after-thoughts for her and she's more interested in the story. As to that, the story itself is rather interesting. A witch unwittingly giving up her powers in a deal with some unknown force to protect an innocent child? Sounds good so far. So then said witch, Savannah, embarks on a crusade to get her powers back and leads her faithful hero, Adam, on a wild chase that has more twists and turns than a corkscrew. Okay, still with it. But even as I'm reading, sometimes I can't help but think, Who cares? Savannah is kind of bratty and likes to get her own way a lot. She's also something of a control freak, which is what, I think, freaks her out the most about losing her powers. She's no longer in control. For the first time in her life, she has to rely on her wits and her physical attributes to get out of certain situations, rather than depend on the quick fix of being able to cast a spell. The saving grace for Savannah (and this story) is that the loss of her powers sends Savannah on a journey of self-discovery. I won't spoil the results of that journey, but I will say that it made this book worth reading. All in all, I liked the cast of characters, the story itself was intriguing, and the writing was tight and flowed so easily off the page, sometimes you forgot you were reading a book. Those are the criteria of a good book for me. Will I pick up another in this series? Very possibly. (Note: I received this book from the publisher for review.)

It picks up right where Waking the Witch left off with Savannah Levine somehow having lost her powers after wishing she could do something to help a little girl named Kayla. Obviously, you need to read Waking the Witch to understand what I’m referring to. In Spell Bound, there's a group of supernaturals called Immortality questers, who feel it is time for them to come out into the open and take what is rightfully theirs, namely, the world. They have tried to figure out a way to cure mortality and it appears that Savannah, as well as Elena and Clay’s kids, are part of their foretold prophecy to gain control away from the humans. Savannah goes through some growing pains without her powers she is just another human Private Investigator looking for answers. She is angry, and turns into a spoiled recalcitrant character at times when things aren’t going her way. She is once again being hunted by witch hunters, and ends up traveling across the US to get answers. Then, there are the mysteries that are never explained. Were the witch killers really after Savannah, or were they working for the Questers in order to kidnap and use her? Who took Savannah’s powers away and why? Why was she chosen to fight an upcoming battle which is never explained? Is it because of who her grandfather is, or her parents and the power she was born with? First, let me say that I love this series. I’ve read it from the first book forward, and plan to continue until the series ends with 13 in 2012. Not all books in the series have been awesome, and I’ve had a love hate relationship with several of the characters along the way. My favorite character of THIS story has to be Cassandra for her snarky commentary and dry humor when she is partnered with Savannah who is still sulking about several things I shall not spoil. Then there are my dislikes. In this instance, it starts and ends with Savannah and how she has been written by Armstrong. She is 21 years old, but still immature in her actions and commentary. She shows an utter lack of respect towards most people around her, including her so called love interest Adam Vasic. She is also reckless and dangerous to herself and those around her. At one point, I was actually rooting for Clay to smack her upside her head for being so stupid and careless. She knows that she is in love with Adam, but, continues to hesitate in saying so fearing that now that she has lost her powers, everything will change including her relationship with Paige and Lucas. Last, but not least, she’s extremely conceited which is apparent when she says to Cassandra “What, they need a wristband to confirm that I’m hot?” Yes, Savannah, the world revolves around you and that rather large ego of yours. Pretty much every character that has been introduced over the course of this series shows up in one form or the other; some too briefly. Paige, Lucas, Jamie O’Casey aka Vegas aka Vargas, Hope Adams who is 7 months pregnant with her husband Karl Marsten, Elena, Clayton, Jeremy, Cassandra, Sean, and Aaron. The only major player not “active” in the story itself was Eve Levine who is on a mission for the Fates to find out who is responsible for Savannah’s power loss. For the record, I am a huge opponent of cliffhanging endings, and this story is no exception to that rule. I don’t like having to wait until the next book to get my questions answered. In some cases, that can take up to two years before the next book is released, or not at all in other cases because of poor sales and publishers dropping the series. I will cut Armstrong a break since the next release in this series will be the last ever written unless she decides to spin off any of her characters. I’ll be bummed about it ending, of course, but I will give Ms. Armstrong strong kudos for ending this series now, instead continuing on like other writers that shall be not be named and have lost readers because of it.

    Spell Bound is book 12 in the Women of the Otherworld series and takes place immediately after Waking the Witch. It’s also a hard one to talk about since it serves to ramp things up for the final book of the series. After her adventure in Waking the Witch, Savannah discovers that her powers have disappeared at the worst moment. Witch hunters are after her and the Supernatural Liberation Movement, an organization bent on exposing supernaturals, is trying to recruit her.

After her adventure in Waking the Witch, Savannah discovers that her powers have disappeared at the worst moment. Witch hunters are after her and the Supernatural Liberation Movement, an organization bent on exposing supernaturals, is trying to recruit her. Without her magic, Savannah must learn to survive on her own as the world turns to chaos. This is the first novel in the series that wouldn’t work well as a standalone. Unlike the other books, there’s no central plot that gets wrapped-up at the end. Instead, this acts as part 1 since the book ends on a cliff-hanger. It made me very glad that I could immediately hop to Thirteen instead of having to wait for it to be released. It also heavily references past stories and characters, which if you’re not at least vaguely familiar with them you’ll lose something while reading this. As an “in-between” book, this was great. I loved the increase of tension as the Supernatural Liberation Movement starts to gain traction and the characters band together as things continue to get worse. Mostly though, I think Spell Bound excelled with Savannah’s character development. Her loss of power forces her to confront some of her greatest fears and mature a little further. I also loved getting to see some of my favorite reoccurring characters through her eyes. While I don’t think you necessarily need to have read the entire series to enjoy Spell Bound, I do think you should have read some of the previous books. At the least, you should read Waking the Witch prior to this, otherwise I think a lot of the backstory will be lost.

I've always loved the way Kelley Armstrong has rotated main characters in the Women of the Otherworld series, allowing readers to really get to know the the ladies one on one. When I realized Spell Bound was another Savannah book, right on the heels of Waking the Witch, I was slightly dismayed. I should have knows that Armstrong had good reason for putting Savannah in the lead two books in a row. Although we didn't always realize it, the entire series has been building around Savannah and as the series comes to a close, she obviously needs to be in the forefront. While Waking the Witch was completely Savannah's book, Spell Bound is more half her, half everyone else. The gangs all here, Paige, Lucas, Elena, Clay, Jeremy, Jaime, Adam, Cassandra, Sean, etc., gearing up for the major battles coming in the future. Spell Bound is the best book in the series thus far, which is saying a lot given the magnificence of the Women of the Otherworld. It sets the tone just right to lead the reader into the conclusion of the series. Spell Bound is tense, exciting and will leave the reader desperate for more.

    Spell Bound is an entertaining addition to the Women of the Otherworld series. It had an eventful plot with appearances from characters from past books- my favorite character, Clay, shows up which made me very happy and he gets to use his werewolf muscles to save Savannah who has lost her magical powers. There is a lot of Savannah and Adam- Savannah's gorgeous, half-demon, best friend, and love intrest.

The romance fan in me wanted more sexual tension and well sex between Savannah and Adam but it's not in this book. There was a bit more sexual tension at the end but I've read young adult books with more heat than this. PNR fans reading this may be disappointed because one, yes one kiss is all your going to see in Spell Bound. Even without the heavy romance, this is still a great read and I am sad because I've heard there is only one more book left in this series. I love Kelley Armstrong's first person writing style and I love the world she has created. The last book should be awesome because as a demon told Savannah- "A war is coming." Thanks First Reads for giving me an ARC!

    Loved to reread this book, and everything that happened, from the witch hunters, to SLAM, and the dead demon expert who was told to summon Lucifer, and yeah, lots of traveling going on! *First read March 14th 2012* Great, great book, Savannah has some really tough times, and she grows through the book-being told to be mature helped, and yeah, lots of action, movement, and it was just a great book! Can't wait to read the 13th, called 13, and I think it's the last one in the series! Yep.

    This book gets three stars for two reasons. 1) Sean. (I LOVE YOU, SEAN!!!!!) 2) Aaron and Cassandra flirting. Otherwise, it's just a really exposition heavy book that I still don't entirely get the need for. This book gets three stars for two reasons. 1) Sean.

    Anyone who has read the Otherworld series knows Savannah and how she become part of this series. Throughout the series she has placed herself in situations a child or teen shouldn’t have but hey a girl needs to learn if she is going to become a bad ass Witch. With that said we find ourselves reaching Spell Bound where we get a grown Savannah, for the most part. When talking about a girl who likes to take chances before fully thinking her actions though always leaves the chance for chaos.

With that said we find ourselves reaching Spell Bound where we get a grown Savannah, for the most part. When talking about a girl who likes to take chances before fully thinking her actions though always leaves the chance for chaos. Spell Bound finds Savannah left in charge of her guardian’s private investigation agency which by now we know is not for one’s average individual but a cover for the supernatural world. She is approached about a case while in charge and instead of checking with anyone she thinks it is her chance to prove she can handle one small investigation. If you are thinking Savannah alone on a case sounds like trouble you would be right. This is normally a storyline I can drive into and not come up for air but found myself putting the book down with no intention of going back. After a few other books I did decide to finish; it was worth it after the 50% mark. I would give it a three-star read but remind everyone that it is part of a series which means parts are needed for the next book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Two foci: Savannah’s development and a coming supernatural war… The story picks up the day after the last book – the little girl taken to social services and her grandmother arrested, and Savannah wakes up in Adam’s arms… she wanders outside of the motel – where she is being watched (a good or bad entity? We never learn it’s name, but it seems to be of the angels, not of the demons)… and as Savannah sighs she thinks she’d give up her powers to bring the girl and her grandmother back together… and Two foci: Savannah’s development and a coming supernatural war… The story picks up the day after the last book – the little girl taken to social services and her grandmother arrested, and Savannah wakes up in Adam’s arms… she wanders outside of the motel – where she is being watched (a good or bad entity? We never learn it’s name, but it seems to be of the angels, not of the demons)… and as Savannah sighs she thinks she’d give up her powers to bring the girl and her grandmother back together… and the entity decides, this can be used – and takes her powers…. Hmmmm So the rest of the book has Savannah dealing with who she is without her spell power… Adam is her support – and pushes her to ‘see’ reality, and helps her as they countering the witch hunter, who forgoes killing her to enlist her aid in SLaM (Supernatural Liberation Movement - and this is the real enemy… SLAM seems to be mostly under Giles – according to Cassandra, Giles is hundreds of years old, yet not a vampire – he was seeking the secret of immortality – and that involved the taking of others lives… SLAM is advocating a new order for supernaturals, one where they rule – and they are running experiments for immortality… a lot of unknowns with them… and they take Savannah… take her to a revival meeting… lots of sputtering about prophecy, which seemed to be about her, about Hope’s child (Hope, daughter to Lucifer, is pregnant), about Larson, a 5 year old, potential seer, and of Elena and Clay’s twins. They let Savannah escape, trying to draw out ???? but she does escape. And we have connection with each of the previous book’s characters, as they all step in, one at a time, to help Savannah out… the first half has her and Adam together – Adam trying to shepherd her to Miami, to safety with Paige and Lucas… and she keeps finding things that they need to do first – and he starts to withdraw a bit from her as she discounts him to take the lead… and they fight – and he tells her some truths – that she is avoiding telling Paige & Adam because she is scared of their reaction, that they might not like her as well as they don’t need her spells, (which is ridiculous he assures her)… and that maybe it is time for her to grow up… and it ends with her kidnapping, when Roni tricks her into thinking that Elena is in trouble. After she escapes the kidnappers, she gets help from Hope’s editor – who sets her up in a hotel… but she wakes up to a fire alarm and bombs going off – she manages to sneak out, take a bus, but when she gets off, the bad guys are there – and Clay comes to her rescue after she has a conversation with Balaam, Lord Demon and her grandfather, who wants her to join SLaM with the intention of taking it over and with him in the future– and she sits back and lets him fight… he is impatient with her afterwards, not accepting the excuse that she could do nothing without her spellcasting… gets her thinking. They make it to Florida – Adam goes off to do research, she confides all to Paige – she tries to humbly help with research – Adam stays clear of her… and then she gets sent out again – (why is she safe now?). When Adam hesitates to go with her, she tries to look uncaring… Cassandra is sent as her protector. Cassandra’s bored, confrontive behavior brings out the sassy Savannah – she is more of herself.Nast protected, 5 year old Larson Dahl has been kidnapped, and the Nast are accusing the Cortez’. Cassandra ‘smells’ and rescue Dahl’s adopted sister, but they do not find Dahl or the adoptive parents… Savannah’s half brothers – gay Sean and grumpy Bryce… Sean has continued to reach out to Savannah in spite of his grandfather’s order not to… Bryce treats her with contempt… Savannah breaks into Bryce’s bodyguard’s home to look for clues about Dahl, and Bryce shows up, and Savannah can see that he had a part – and she offers to help him to make it right… he looks like he wants to take her up on it, but then leaves... and in the alley, a homeless man steps in front of Savannah, and tells her that she must learn a lesson, to not rely on her powers (the entity that took them) that she will be needed in the coming war… and Cassandra coaches her through a conversation with Adam – not too submissive & apologetic, not too distant, not too aggressive/defensive. She starts to feel her powers – once when she needed to protect friend… and then in working with Paige, she could pull up powers like a newbie… And Adam is his old self, coming up behind her to tickle her… they have a 5 minute, honest conversation – and she tells him she was wrong, and he tells her he was wrong – hmmmm then he takes her to his room – he has been researching how to get her powers back, and has a ceremony all set up… and she is happy – but declines it, telling him about the old man in the alley… and he agrees with her choice – and they almost kiss… they do go out and get drunk… and they might start making out, but she falls asleep in his arms, and wake up to a call from Bryce – who is calling from a pay phone, asking her for help… Jeremy, Jamie, and Adam go to New Orlean’s – and figure out which building he is in… and it seems they have set up a hospital ward… and are doing experiments like Giles did in France at the end of WWII – immortality… Althea/Anita is there – Jeremy and Adam are fighting off the guards, Savannah makes it into the hospital area, seeing people in hospital beds that are dying… then finds Bryce – he looks better, but is ill – and Anita attacks… and then a gas starts to fill the room – Anita disappears – they find a hatch under a bed, and fall into a room of awful water – as she hears Adam calling for her, there are multiple explosions, she helps Bryce keep his head above water… they find a tunnel, and finally manage to get out… she runs back to the building and hears Adam telling Jeremy that he’s heard her as he digs through the rubble – and she runs into his arms, and they share a perfect first kiss… ahhhh Bryce has been infected and may be immortal? Larson is still missing… Anita is dead, but Gilles is still around - hmmmm
