Dime Store Magic  (Women of the Otherworld, #3)Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To see a synopsis of Dime Store Magic, visit the Goodreads site.

When I started this book, I was a little wary of Paige as the narrator. I found her kind of annoying in Stolen. I don't specifically know why, I just got a weird vibe from her.

In Dimestore Magic, I loved her. And I loved Savannah, and Lucas. I loved them all. Paige is taking on way more than she should have to, and that makes her a very strong young woman in my opinion. She's just a couple years older than me, and I don't know what I would have done with a 13-year-old in my custody, let alone all the magic involved as well.

I really felt able to connect with Paige; it could be that we're so close in age. I can't even imagine what I would do in her position, without my mother and with a pre-teen to care for. And then the crap hits the fan and her life blows up in her face. Every time something bad happened to her, I thought "Oh no, not again. She doesn't need this crap!" I felt like a personal friend of hers who just wanted to protect her from everything.

And then Lucas Cortez showed up. Persistently, I might add. But he was beyond wonderful in everything he did. He was there for Paige, even when she didn't want him to be. And soon, she was happy he was there, despite herself. And I was happy he was there for her. I loved Lucas as quickly as Savannah did and wanted Paige to trust him, too.

I know this is one of my favourite reads now, and it is probably my favourite in the Women of the Otherworld series so far. Yes, I loved Bitten, like really loved it, but I think Dimestore Magic is my new favourite. I can't wait to see how the other books develop, and if they get better than Dimestore Magic, then I'm in for a big treat!

I'd recommend this to anyone who likes urban-fantasy, and magic, and who likes Kelley Armstrong's writing. It's really a great read!!
