The mesmerizing tale of an exceptional young woman caught up in an otherworldly realm where some will stop at nothing to get what they want. 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 twenty-three 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 make sure they both survive.… (més)

I know that I put a 3, but this is more like a 3.5 star review. The first time that I tried to read this book was long ago and I did not like it because I wanted more of the main character from the first two books in the series and I did not realize that the series would switch back later. That annoyance meant that I couldn't make myself keep reading. This time I got around that by listening to the audio. I liked the book, but I wasn't fond of the reader. They made voices for each of the characters, which is usually nice, but I hated the one for the kid, and Paige's voice didn't match her actions, so I'm guessing that the reader chose to interpret phrasing differently from the author.
First, Paige is pretty cool, even if I'm not fond of how high strung she is in some places. I really like that she gets better at curbing her urges to control everything later in the book. Since she's basically a single parent by adoption in this story and really into reading I really related to her. I don't miss my days as a single parent, and doing it as the parent of a preteen sounds even more awful. Give said preteen the power to curse things when they hate the world and you have a recipe for "fun" parenting moments. This is the story of a custody battle between Paige and a blood relative of Savannah who really had no business going about it the way that they did.
All in all this is a fun book, though pretty different than the first two. I find the people in the first two a bit more interesting, but I find that Paige is honestly more like me. I'm looking into continuing the series now that I've passed my last road block, but I really do hope that the next book has a better reader in audio. If the next audio uses the same person I might set it aside. ( )

this one was a little hard to get into, but once I did I liked it. I can see now why this series is called "the women of the otherworld" cause it's not just about one main character i've now noticed which is ok still makes it a good read. Poor Paige though it always sucks when "old magic" or "old Polotics" gets in the way of modern ideas and values. And to have your coven do what hers did to her OMG I would be like "um screw you!" with Paige it took her a long time to realize her coven wasn't the way to go at least for now. Savannah though that girl has some extremely wicked powers going on with her she might be pretty scary later on. ( )

Much better than I expected, I didn't like Paige in the last book but the plot of this one moved fast enough that it carried her through. ( )

Paige is doing her best to take care of thirteen year old Savannah, while Savannah's father tries to take custody. His minions using foul means to achieve their ends.

I sometimes like Paige and other times I can't stand her. Savannah is a snot but typical 13 year old, Lucas is adorable. I'm not a huge fan of this part of the otherworld series. I really like Elena and the werewolves ( )
