Folks, I just reviewed Kelley Armstrong’s urban fantasy SPELL BOUND at Shiny Book Review . . . here’s a link:

I enjoyed this book a great deal.  It’s a fast read, it’s fun, there’s a lot of action and suspense, but the best part about it is how deftly Ms. Armstrong gets in heroine Savannah Levine’s struggles once she loses her power (Savannah’s a witch with demon blood and has been used to being uncommonly powerful).  The “hero’s journey” aspect is done very well, and I appreciated it; that it’s often funny in a sarcastic way appealed to me, especially at this time in my life.

While SPELL BOUND isn’t a perfect book, it’s still a very good book from a very fine writer; I enjoyed it immensely.  Go read my review, then if you’re in the mood for an urban fantasy with werewolves, vampires, demons, and more, give SPELL BOUND a try.  (You’ll be glad you did.)
