From early in Armstrong’s outstanding Otherworld series, young Savannah Levine has been a scene stealer. At last Savannah takes center stage in the first book focusing on her adventures. Part detective story, part coming-of-age tale, Waking the Witch showcases Armstrong’s unique ability to blend dark drama and gripping suspense. With an ending that will leave readers hanging on the edge of their seats, Armstrong once again demonstrates why she is a genre giant!

As the daughter of a dark witch and even darker sorcerer (both deceased), Savannah knows the supernatural world keeps a wary eye on her. With her adoptive parents off on a much-deserved vacation, 21-year-old Savannah is minding their private investigation agency. Savannah jumps at taking her first solo case and heads to Columbus, Wash., to investigate the deaths of several young women in what might be murder with a supernatural twist. Savannah quickly learns people and things are not always what they seem, as this case takes a very hazardous turn. (DUTTON, Aug., 320 pp., $25.95)
