From Goodreads. Savannah Levine is in terrible danger, and for once she's powerless to help herself. At the heartbreaking conclusion of Waking the Witch, Savannah swore that she would give up her powers if it would prevent further pain for a young orphan. Little did she know that someone would take her up on that promise.

And now, witch-hunting assassins, necromancers, half-demons, and rogue witches all seem to be after her. The threat is not just for Savannah; every member of the Otherworld might be at risk. While most of her fellow supernaturals are circling the wagons at a gathering of the council in Miami, Savannah is caught on the road, isolated from those who can protect her and unable to use her vast spell-casting talent, the thing she counts on most. In a story that will change the shape of the Otherworld forever, Armstrong gathers Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jamie, Hope, and other beloved characters, who soon learn that the greatest threat to supernaturals just may come from within.

Review by Kate
SPELL BOUND, by Kelley Armstrong, is full of action, suspense, and the complete cast of characters from all the Women of the Otherworld books combined. Each book in the series has been leading up to this epic almost-conclusion to the series. Savannah has lost her powers and discovers a group of supernaturals that want to take their powers to the ultimate level. Full of intrigue, romance, and all of the characters that you know and love, I guarentee you will not be able to put this book down!

After Waking The Witch, I loved reading the book from Savannah's POV, and I was excited to know that the last books in the series were through her eyes. Previously she's been more of a side-character but since her coming of age she is definitely a significant woman in Armstrong's Otherworld. Savannah has been all about her awesome magic skills her whole life and when that is taken away from her, her resolve crumbles under the pressure that she is just not good enough for everyone in her life. Along with her breakdown, Savannah and Adam are on the case to discover why witch hunters and other supernaturals are after her.

This book took many of the cases and problems from previous books and brought them together into one massive problem for supernaturals. I loved how Armstrong brought the gang together to fight! And, as always, I yearned for Savannah and Adam to finally realize their feelings for each other!!

Overall, this book was non-stop heart-pounding adventure with a huge cast of phenomenal characters. I am thrilled and anxious to read the final conclusion of the series as soon as I can get my hands on it!
