Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong
(Otherworld, Book 12)


6 Critic Reviews

...just because a book is the middle part of a trilogy or series is no excuse for taking readers nowhere.
-Love Vampires


The #1 New York Times bestselling author sets the stage for a battle of epic proportions in the 12th installment of her critically lauded Women of the Otherworld series. 

Savannah Levine is all grown up. As a witch endowed with an array of spells, she is also a force to be reckoned with. As a paranormal investigator she is finally coming into her own. But her last case tore a family apart, and Savannah swore she'd give up her powers to fix the mess she helped create. Someone-or something-must have been listening.

Powerless and on the run from witch-hunting assassins, Savannah stumbles upon a gathering storm that threatens the very existence of the Otherworld. The danger is real, and Savannah must somehow join forces with old friends like Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jaime, and Hope to face their world's greatest threat-and one that just might come from within.

Praise for Kelley Armstrong and Waking the Witch:

"Sexy, smart, and action-packed!" -Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author of the VampireAcademy series

"A quick and fun read." -The Miami Herald

Armstrong puts her pieces in place for the finale in a story that’s less stand-alone than her usual stories but which will be enjoyed by fans of the series.
