A creepy small town, shady rich folk, a mysterious commune suspected of being a cult, and weird ritualistic stuff are all very appealing, and narrator Savannah Levine has a great voice when she’s not talking about her hotness. (Yep, she’s up herself.)

The witches, sorcerers and demons in this series have never really appealed to me. The spells are deliberately vague and seem too easy for their casters. Savannah (and why doesn’t anyone shorten her name to “Sav”?) whips ’em out willy-nilly, and I’d complain about this except that the author has predicted my concern and will seemingly address it in the upcoming sequel.

The bad girls are far and above my favourite characters here, which may say more about me than it does about them. Megan steals the show, and the other bad girl is great fun (I won’t name her for spoiler reasons).

This is a solid four-star read, but I’m feeling a bit flat about it, perhaps because I’m reviewing this so long after reading it.

Here’s the Canadian cover of Kelley Armstrong’s Waking the Witch, and the dirt-encrusted character looks somewhat creepy.

Meet Savannah. She’s strong, smart, sexy…and supernatural. A young witch with a dark heritage. As the orphaned daughter of a black witch mother and sorcerer father, she has powers far beyond a normal witch, and a dangerous addiction to trouble…Will she be able to resist the darker side of her powers, and more to the point, is she right to deny that side of herself?
