Women of the Otherworld #3: Dime Store Magic (2004)

Dime Store Magic

instead of continuing the story on Elena the werewolf, the third book of the Women of the Otherworld (2001-2012) series followed the story of Paige the witch. 9 months after the incident of rescuing Elena and Savannah from being held captive, Paige's life returned to anything but peaceful. she received complaints from the Elders of her Coven that she was drawing too much attention to herself by adopting Savannah, the daughter of the sorcerer and a dark witch. she also received a custody petition from Leah, a telekinetic half-demon that betrayed them during the last escape. Paige had to protect Savannah from her powerful sorcerer father, who was proven to be influential enough to control the result.

despite her unpleasant character in Stolen (2003), it was absolutely easy to get hooked with Paige's life. she was nothing like her character in Stolen (2003), controlling maybe, self-absorb maybe, but she was still able to creep slowly into my heart and made me love and sympathize her as she tried to adjust herself with the situation that she was thrown into. the book felt so realistic with the humans' objections towards witchery but unfortunately, also made fun of the modern day Wiccans. the story line was original and engaging. it was interesting to know that witches will only receive their full power after going through a ceremony after their first menses. it was definitely an enjoyable read, passing down enough knowledge and adding in sufficient actions to make it irresistible.
