Description

From Canada’s new queen of suspense, another hugely entertaining supernatural thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Prepare to be enchanted . . .

Forget the cackling green hag in The Wizard of Oz, forget Samantha from Bewitched. Real witches are nothing, NOTHING like this. For years real witches have hidden their powers, afraid of being persecuted. They have integrated so well into the community, you could have a witch living right next door and never know about it. Take Paige, for instance, whom we first met in Kelley Armstrong’s novel Stolen. Just an ordinary twenty-something who runs her own website design company, worries about her weight and wonders if she’ll ever find a boyfriend. Okay, so she’s leader of the American Coven and guardian of Savannah, the teenage daughter of a black witch. Really, life is ordinary. But then a telekinetic half-demon, Leah O’Donnell, shows up to fight for custody of Savannah. And although Paige is ready for her, she’s not quite so prepared for the team of supernaturals that Leah brings with her, including a powerful sorcerer who claims to be Savannah’s father.

When all hell breaks loose -- literally -- and Paige is accused of witchcraft, Satanism and murder, the Coven, fearing exposure, abandons her. Cut off from her friends, Paige is forced against her better judgment to accept the help of a young sorcerer lawyer. And she quickly comes to realize that keeping Savannah could mean losing everything else.

Breathtakingly thrilling, hip and funny, this new novel is another page-turning triumph from an author who is going from strength to strength.

“I had a feeding frenzy on my front lawn, an unconscious paranormal investigator on my stairs, and, somewhere out there, an entire Cabal special projects team devoted to ruining my life.” -- from Dime Store Magic

About the Author

Kelley Armstrong

When librarians finally granted Kelley Armstrong an adult card, she made straight for the epic fantasy and horror shelves. She spent the rest of her childhood and teen years happily roaming fantastical and terrible worlds, and vowed that someday she'd write a story combining swords, sorcery, and the ravenous undead. That story began with the New York Times bestselling Sea of Shadows and continues with Empire of Night.

Armstrong's first works for teens were the New York Times bestselling Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising trilogies. She lives in rural Ontario with her husband, three children, and far too many pets.

Editorial Review

"A convincing small-town setting, clever contemporary dialogue, compelling characterizations and a touch of cool humor .... This story’s special strength lies in its seamless incorporation of the supernatural into the real world."
--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Bitten:
Bitten is hip and postmodern. . . . Those who enjoy the vampire books of Anne Rice, or Canadian vampire writer Nancy Kilpatrick, will love it.” -- The Globe and Mail

“Fast and entertaining. . . . Surely one of the sexiest, most energetic novels published in a long time.” -- The Gazette (Montreal)

“Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice’s sophisticated re-furbishings of the vampire story.” -- Publishers Weekly

“Wicked writing gets noticed, and first-time novelist Kelley Armstrong has written a deliciously wicked book.” -- Toronto Star

Bitten is a lightning-paced, violent and completely readable entertainment that entertains loudly and abundantly.” -- The Hamilton Spectator

“It’s as smooth as cream all the way, sure to gain fans.” -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Stolen:
"A delicious cocktail of testosterone and wicked humour." -- The Globe and Mail

"Mesmerizing... Armstrong is a talented and original writer whose inventiveness and sense of the bizarre is arresting. -- The London Free Press
