Publisher's Summary

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 23 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 survive.

Listen to more in the Women of the Otherworld series.

What the Critics Say

"As in Armstrong's debut novel Bitten, this story's special strength lies in its seamless incorporation of the supernatural into the real world." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Interesting Series"

    First read this book years ago thru my library & got interested enough in Armstrong's Otherworld that I read the others in the series. I've been more interested in Paige & Lucas than Elena & Clay, on the whole. But, in listening to this story today, there were several times "Harvard" Paige was just TSTL and her intelligence did not shine through. I like Merlington as a narrator on the whole, but this recording is not a standout.

    "Not the best"

    Love the Kelley Armstrong series, however this was a little lame. I am hoping that the rest of the series is not a dime store series.

    "Second time better than the first"

    Watching the BITTEN series has lead me to listen to the Outer World Series again. Kelly Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and I love theses books. The performances are mostly excellent.

    Story
    "Excellent continuation of the Series"

    This third book follows Paige and Savannah after the aftermath of of book one and two. Eliana (main character from first two novels) is mentioned a couple of times. This story is about witches, sorcerers and cabals. I like the story, it was fresh and took a way different trajectory than the first. This story preserved a villain from the book two -- you have to read to see who.

    Armstrong continues to do a good job painting interesting characters and placing them into situations where they have to examine moral issues. I find this a much more welcome formulation than simply creating a action bang-chase-bang fantasy novel. I was okay with Merlinton's narration. She narrated briskly, but her multiple voices needs work but still was suitably young for the Paige and Savannah.

    This novel appeals to lovers of fantasy. Although this is not a romance novel, it has elements that will keep the interest of the romantic. I give this novel a solid thumbs up.

    Story
    "Don't Waste Your Credits(or money) on This Book"
    Would you try another book from Kelley Armstrong and/or Laural Merlington?

    I don't know? I've liked a couple of her books, but this book was such a huge disapointment that I don't know if I want to waste more time and energy on a bad book.


    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    She made the book boring.


    Any additional comments?

    You need a better narrator for your books.

    "Avoid at all costs!"

    This book was so abominable I cannot fathom how Armstrong ever got another book deal. Here's how it goes:

    1. Bad guys engineer set-up.
    2. Heroine acts like a stupid twit.
    3. Hijinx ensue.
    4. Repeat steps 1-3 ad nauseam.

    I really hated the heroine. I mean full-out hated her, to the point I was rooting for the bad guys to win. I intensely disliked the heroine's teenage ward, to the extent I was arguing with the lead characters to hand the stupid twerp over to the bad guys and good riddance to bad rubbish. The hero was not stupid or annoying, but merely wooden.

    If I could give it negative stars, I would.

    "I love the the series"

    Kelley Armstrong is a fantastic author, I love her books and the storylines. What I don't like, is that she never has the same narrator. Most other authors carry the same narrator through the whole series. I'm not sure of the reason why they do not have the same narrator. When you're listening to audiobooks the narrator makes a big difference in the book. They can make a story come to life. I dislike the narrator in this book. Overall the book is fantastic along with the series so far. I do however wish that she carried in a Lena Michelson in this book.

    "Ok story telling. Performance lacking."

    I've read this story before. A decent early work for the author. But the narrator was lacking. Mispronounced words were the worst. She pronounced forte like FORT not once but twice. The whole thing came off as less than professional.
