    Paige s books are not favorites of mine and I dislike the narrator of her audiobooks in a major way The Paige Lucas pairing never worked for me romance wise It is just so infinitely dull In this novella their relationship has a particularly rinse and repeat quality to it Whenever I got to some vague allusion to the fab schmexy times these two apparently have behind the closed doors, I couldn t stop myself from rolling my eyes How many times should this be repeated Please, show, don t tell And do [...]

    Counterfeit Magic takes place right before Waking the Witch and is told from Paige Winterbourne s perspective In this novella, Paige and company are hired to investigate a death in one of the supernatural fight clubs I really loved this one, even though it ends a little abruptly What really drew me in was seeing the emotional struggle Paige and Lucas were facing as he steps firmly into his role of heir to the Cortez Cabal I would highly recommend this to fans of the series.

    I first ordered this off but of course the book was limited edition like most of her novellas now and I was unable to get it However I have managed to get it in audio book form, which is new for me It took me a while to get passed the annoying voice reading it to me I found Paige s character felt very different to what I ve read in books, her character seemed picky of people and less forgiving Normally she s very nice even to cruel people Her relationship with Lucas also didn t feel right, I co [...]

    This is a mostly Lucas and Paige novella w some Savannah who for a portion of this goes by Georgia lolz , and a dash of Adam.1 Lucas and Paige are not my favorite No reason that I can point at with my finger they just aren t.2 Sometimes I think I m fooling myself when I think that I only have a couple of major book turns offs child victims, rape, cheating those I thought were the big ones If any of those three things happen in book, chances are it s going a get a BIG thumbs down from me HOWEVER [...]

    Someone is messing with Paige and Lucas trying to break them up Also get a little peek at Adam and Paige.

    Oh, guys Before I even attempt to do justice to Kelley Armstrong s gorgeous world I need to talk about how very, very pretty this book is I sprung for the signed, limited edition hardcover of this little beauty and I am so incredibly impressed by it The interior artwork is gorgeous, the paper is heavyweight and it feels downright decadent against my fingers If I could date a book, I d date this one It s just that pretty swoon I totally get why people COMMIT CRIMES against other people over BOOKS [...]

    Bitten was the first ever Urban Fantasy book I ever read and still one of my favourites So I get very excited whenever a new Otherworld book is released and disappointed when I can t get my hands on them straight away Counterfeit Magic isn t a full novel, but a novella that was originally a limited edition release complete with beautiful art work I wasn t able to get my hands on a copy, but a couple of years later and the magic of e books means I can finally read this story, set shortly before W [...]

    Paige and Lucas have had relationship issues since Lucas started working with the Cabal, whose members ignore Paige Now Paige is feeling jealous as Lucas has to work with an attractive young client who is obviously trying to seduce him Savannah goes undercover at a supernatural fight club to find out what happened to the woman s brother.I prefer stories about the wolf pack but this was a decent story focusing on Paige, Lucas, Adam and Savannah I m not a Savannah fan because I find her to be a wh [...]

    This is a short novel that comes late in a series so it s probably not a good place to start But I d heard good things about Kelley Armstrong, and was feeling like a short audiobook, so I picked it up on a whim from the library It s not anything earth shattering, but it scratches a nice itch, because it s a fantasy story set mostly in the real world that is about grownups living their grownup lives Instead of a coming of age story about the epic battle of good and evil, or a romance about meetin [...]

    I love the Women of the Otherworld series and have wanted to read this novella since it first came out So after getting a kindle this week Counterfeit Magic was my first ebook purchase.I really enjoy Savannah and Paige so it was great to get to read another story featuring them I will be so sad when the last book 13 comes out.Counterfeit Magic has Paige and Savannah go undercover in a supernatural fight club We get some of Adam and Lucas too I love this series So I enjoyed the novella It s not a [...]

    It s hard not to like this book The witchy cabal contingent are some of my favorite characters in the Armstrong verse, and this focused on them It seemed the shorter format kept everything moving along too, no dead air No side trips No distractions I wanted , which is a great thing to say at the end of a novella I would give this five stars exceptwell, it was a little unbelievable I mean, really I loved the resolution, though, I really did Served him right But, you know, I just wanted to shake P [...]

    Please note this is a novella set in the Women of the Otherworld universe Keeping this mind, I very much enjoyed this short foray into Paige and Lucas s business life However, as it is in any world, things are not as as simple as they seem on the surface With just a short 141 pages, Ms Armstrong has you in her grasp I read this book in one sitting and if you are a true fan of the series, please find a copy to buy or borrow and lose yourself in it s pages

    Partially, this has just never been my favorite subsection of this world and partially it rested on a plot I don t like much view spoiler Lucas is never, ever going to cheat on Paige Reading the speculation just made me uncomfortable hide spoiler I also didn t totally follow the larger plot.BUT Mostly, I read this because I needed to read writing that just flowed for me and Kelley Armstrong s does that.

    I really like this story, but then I have not read a book or short story in the Women of the Otherworld series that I haven t liked though stories with Clay are my favorite This story really makes me want to read Spell Bound.

    This was a short novella, and took me a couple of sessions to read It features Lucas, Paige Savannah in one of their investigations into supernatural goings on Can t really say much about it, but if you are a Kelley Armstrong fan you will enjoy it.

    Paige and Lucas take on a case involving a supernatural fight club, a gambling ring and the obnoxious sister of a dead fighter The case story is mostly Cassandra and Paige, but the background story with Paige, Lucas and Adam got me both crying and angry Nice little twist at the end.I m not sure whether I agree with Paige on how she handles the client and the Cabal or whether I wish she d stand up for herself I understand her reasons but there s got to be a better way than just leaving to your hu [...]

    I almost rage quit this book because one part in the story gave me such an emotional response I knew it couldn t be true Glad I kept reading

    I found this book a little rushed, I normally don t read the point whatever books in a series as they tend to not really be useful to the story arcis one felt a bit strainedbut it was a quick read and easy, getting interrupted while reading wasn t a big deal as it was easy to pick up again quickly.Not a must read in this series, but it was entertaining.

    This is a short one The basic premise is that a beautiful half demon client named Ava shows up at a supernatural detective agency demanding to speak only to the lawyer turned PI Lucas Cortez who also happens to be a Sorcerer , who is still dealing with the fallout of his brother s death and his ascension to what is basically acting CEO of the Cortez cabal Cabal s being the most powerful political and financial organizations in the supernatural world and very much old boys clubs his wife, The wit [...]

    Counterfeit Magic is the latest installment in Kelley Armstrong s fabulous Otherworld series It s not a full length novel, but a limited release novella The narrator in this installment is Paige, an independent and optimistic witch, who runs an PI agency with her sorcerer husband, Lucas It s great to have a Lucas and Paige story We ve seen the evolution of their nine year relationship since the very beginning, with Dime Store Magic And I ve always rooted for them.Anyway, the story begins with a [...]

    Counterfeit Magic takes place within Armstrong s Women of the Otherworld setting and features some of the characters from that world Paige, Lucas, Savannah, and Adam, all who work for Cortez Winterbourne investigations I like Paige and Lucas and wish sometimes that people wouldn t just ignore them for Elena and the rest of the werewolf pack This novella follows Personal Demons, in which Lucas lost two of his brothers during the course of an investigation He is then asked to take on responsibil [...]

    While at the library I wandered the shelves and couldn t decide on anything I was in one of those strange moods where I didn t know what I wanted to read, didn t want to commit to something just so so but wanted to get into something good Fast was also something I wanted since it s the holiday season and I have less time to read with all the family visiting and such When I saw this little novella I grabbed it I ve never read Armstrong before and thought this would be a good way to see if she was [...]

    ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.This year Subterranean Press has published several novellas written by authors who ve been on my radar but not necessarily at the top of my To Be Read stack These little books are a perfect introduction to such writers because they re easy to read in a few hours and I can get the feel or flavor of the authors and their worlds without spending a lot of time engaged in a longer novel, one that may not even be the end of the story.Kelley Armstrong s Counterfe [...]

    It was short but full of everything as usual Kelley s always has an amazing story line, it keeps you glue to the book turning page after page to see what will happens next This story was about Savannah and Paige doing some undercover work as boxer and manager You can guess who as the boxer was Savannah and you know who won too They were investigating why boxers were dying at a gym run by two brothers Ethan and Tommy At first they thought they it was the younger brother Tommy interfering causing [...]
