Publisher's Summary

One of the most popular writers of paranormal fiction and the number-one New York Times best-selling author returns with a rollicking new novel in her Otherworld series.

At 21, Savannah Levine - orphaned daughter of a notorious dark witch and an equally notorious cutthroat sorcerer - considers herself a full-fledged member of the otherworld. The once rebellious teen has grown into a six-foot-tall, motorcycle-riding jaw-dropper, with an impressive knowledge of and ability to perform spells.

The only problem is, she's having a hard time convincing her adoptive parents, Paige and Lucas, to take her seriously as an adult. She's working as the research assistant at the detective agency they founded, and when they take off on a romantic vacation alone, leaving her in charge, Savannah finds herself itching for a case to call her own. (She's also itching for Adam, her longtime friend and colleague, to see her as more than just a little girl, but that's another matter.)

Suddenly, Savannah gets the chance she's been waiting for: Recruited by another supernatural detective, she travels to Columbus, Washington, a small, dying town. Two troubled young women have been found in an abandoned warehouse, murdered. Now a third woman's dead, and on closer inspection small details point to darker forces at play. Savannah feels certain she can handle the case, but with signs of supernatural activity appearing at every turn, things quickly become more serious - and far more dangerous - than she realizes.

Keep chilled: listen to more titles in the Women of the Otherworld series.

What the Critics Say

"Armstrong skillfully juggles her twisty plot, weaving in characters from previous novels as she builds to a fast-paced conclusion. This supernatural mystery is unabashedly aimed at fans of Charlaine Harris and Stephenie Meyer, and may well hit the mark." (Publishers Weekly)

    "If only the ending was different...."

    I really like the Women of the otherworld seires and I always had a soft spot for Savannah. That said this book was a bit of a disappointment. I like the main story of Savannah going out on her own to investigate, however I really hated the cliff hanger ending which never happened before in the series. So I will give 4 stars for the main story but minus a star for the end. The main mystery was solved but it left me with a bad taste in my mouth. (and I wanted to swear just like Savannah at the end) Supposedly that will be resolved in the next book, but I really wish the book didn’t end as it did. Now I eagerly await the next book in both dread and hope. I have faith in Ms. Armstrong so I will wait patiently. (sigh)

    "mediocre book"

    I love Women of the Otherworld, but this book ties with Living with the Dead for least favorite. I liked the narrator and I liked getting to know Savannah better. Still, I kept waiting for the romance and... there isn't one. Add that to the cliffhanger ending and It feels like half a book.

    "Another solid offering from Kelley Armstrong"

    I enjoyed hearing more about Savannah, especially from her point of view. The pacing was fast and there were nice twists & turns. I liked the references to the old characters I've come to love & her growing relationship with Adam. The only thing I question is the use of Joanna Parker for the narrator. I kept thinking I was listening to Sookie Stackhouse even though Joanna is a great narrator. Also there was the big cliff hanger. I hate those because then I have to wait so long for the next installment!! In general I would recommend this book to Armstrong fans.

    "Great Story Best Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Waking the Witch the most enjoyable?

    This was well in the standard of Kelly Armstrong and the performance by Johanna Parker was great! She is the best at what she does. Anything read by her is like watching a movie with your eyes closed. You can picture every character as the author meant for them to be.I have many of the otherworld books but read by Johanna Parker makes them better.

    "Anxiously awaiting for book 12 in Series"

    I really enjoyed this book, anxiously now waiting for next in series. The ending is really a cliff hanger. Now I have to wait patiently for next book in series. First time I have read a book with quite and abrupt unfinished ending.

    "It's good......for half a book."
    What did you love best about Waking the Witch?

    Getting to know Savannah as a complex, adult character.


    Would you recommend Waking the Witch to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe, but I'm pretty pissed that I now have to pay another 20 bucks to find out what happens. The story doesn't wrap up, major things are just left hanging. It's like a tv season finale, but instead of having a big 2 hour finale she just wrote half the story and then sold it as a full book. It's much shorter than the others without even finishing the story. I'm so mad right now that I don't even want to buy any more of her books, although I am too attached to this series not to buy the last 2. I think I'll move on to another writer after this though.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She did a good job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    PART 1

    "Another great book by Kelley Armstrong!"

    I have read the entire series. My favorite is BITTEN and FROSTBITTEN but I love them all. I didn't like Savannah Levine very much in the earlier books, she was such a snot. However, grown up Savannah is awesome. I loved this book, as I loved all of Kelleys books. Do yourself a favor, read all her books in this series from the beginning to end. Awesome!

    "Not disappointed at all."

    Ahhh. She’s all grown up. This was another wonderful instalment by Armstrong. Loved the innocent passes made by the characters, reminds me of my teenage years.
    Cannot wait for the next book.

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "Go Savannah!"

    I've wanted a Savannah story since Dime Store Magic. I LOVED it! I can't wait to keep going.


    My ONLY little complaint is that I wouldn't have picked Johanna Parker to narrate. Don't get me wrong, she does a great job reading, but something wasn't quite right. Parker does have a slightly southern drawl (much less though, than when she's reading Sookie) and it was a little weird in the Northwest.
