about

Savannah Levine is in terrible danger, and for once she’s powerless to help herself. At the conclusion of Waking the Witch, Savannah swore that she would give up her powers if it would help a young girl. 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, Spell Bound gathers Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jaime, Hope, and others, who soon learn that the greatest threat to supernaturals just may come from within.

Book 12 in the Otherworld series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's almost over :'( :'( I loved that this book picked up right where Waking The Witch left off! No time lapse or anything, just one long story! After reading this book I can tell Kelley has something big planned for the series finale!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We're almost done! Not my all time favourite but a necessary book for the ending of this story. I do wish Savannah had her powers though I love seeing her grow up and learn more about herself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Build Up While there were some components of this book that almost felt like filler, it's quite needed to help build the story for the finale! Overall, it's a good story for the close end to the Otherworld series

Rated 4 out of 5 by from second to last installment SPELL BOUND is the second to last storyline in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. At the end of Waking The Witch, our heroine Savannah Levine-part witch/part sorceress-all powerful young woman has sacrificed her powers to save a young child, and now Savannah must make her way through a haunted world of demons, werewolves, clairvoyants and an end of the world prophecy foretold from her birth to the birth of werewolf twins and more. We learn more about a group of people seeking immortality and using the supernatural’s to get what they want. But immortality comes at a price and Savannah and the others will be the ultimate prize in the quest for –forever. And finally, there is a hint of a romance between Savannah and Adam-a love story that has been building since STOLEN (the second storyline in the series where Adam helped rescue a twelve year old Savannah from Ty Winsloe’s compound of collected supernatural species). Fans of Kelley Armstrong have known this love story has been ten years in the making-ten long years (in story time) for some-but finally will be coming to its natural conclusion in Thirteen-the final book in Kelley’s WOTO series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spell Bound This does not disappoint. Whether you are new to Armstrong or not, give this a read. Although it is part of a series, you really don't have to read in order

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Like all the Women of the Otherworld series, I really enjoyed Spell Bound. I enjoyed Savannah's perspective and seeing her character grow. You never know exactly what will happen next. It was impossible to put down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Average This book is what I like to call a filler. Every series has one. It's necessary to further characterize and advance the story but frustrating because it leaves you needing more....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Average Loved it as much as Kelley Armstrong's other books. Recommend this to everyone who is a fan of the supernatural!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh dang that dang that was good! Oh my!! That was epically good but now that means I am on the last book (sigh)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Spell Bound It took me in like all of her books and Kelley Armstrong finally presented the romance most readers were hoping for Adam and Savannah, but there is something missing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kept me Interested While this book was not even close to my favourite in the Women of the Other World Series the material kept me turning the pages. And while the ending was somewhat of a dissapoint (this book does not conclude, nor is there a cliff-hanger leading to the next instalment), I am definitely going to take the time to read the next book. I liked the appearances of the characters from the other books, and while references to their stories refreshed memory I wasn't skipping over paragraphs of material I already knew. More like "oh ya, I remember that...". I would definitely rate this book as Young Adult, perhaps its because of Savannah's age that Armstrong has left out the sexual content that was present in the other novels in this series. I noticed this in "Waking the Witch" as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Savannah Grows Up Full review at http://urbanfantasyland.wordpress.com Spell Bound is the middle of the last three books in the Women of the Otherworld series. Savannah is a pretty stubborn character, but this time she pushes too far. Without her powers, you'd think she would act more rationally and less rashly, but not until she pushes her luck too far. Then she regrets it and starts acting cautiously. I liked this. I loved that there was consequences to her behaviour. That's something that felt to be missing from Waking the Witch. But Savannah takes her caution too far. She stops being reliable back-up for the rest of her team. Again, more consequences. Savannah's growth felt much more natural in Spell Bound. We get to see lots more of the other characters from the Otherworld series in Spell Bound, as they're all required in this fight against a new problem. An organization wants to expose the supernaturals, and it's up to the Council members to stop them. Lots of great action, killer suspense and dead-on humour. Spell Bound kept me up all night. Can't wait for Thirteen!

Read from the Book

Sitting g cross-legged on my motel bed in the dark, I cast my light-ball spell for the twentieth time. As I recited the incantation, I waited for the mental click that told me it had worked. When that didn’t come, I opened my eyes, still expecting to see the glowing ball floating over my fingers. It didn’t matter that I hadn’t seen it the first nineteen times. It was a damned light-ball spell, so simple I usually didn’t even need to finish the incantation before it worked. The room stayed dark. On a chair by the bed, Adam mumbled and shifted in his sleep. Adam Vasic, Exustio half-demon, the guy I’d been in love with since I was twelve, now my best friend. He’d followed me when I took off in a tantrum of guilt and grief, snuck into my motel room, and quietly fell asleep. He was close to waking now, and even my whispered incantations had him fussing. He needed sleep, not more of my angst, so I slid from the room. I stepped outside. It was a wet spring night, the earlier storm gone, whipping winds and a bone-chilling cold left behind. I walked over to Adam’s Jeep, parked beside my vintage Triumph motorcycle. I peered through the back of his vehicle, in case I’d left a sweater there. All I could see was his duffel bag, and I didn’t want to break in and go through his stuff, which was proof that I really wasn’t myself tonight. A soda machine glowed across the motel lot. I wasn’t thirsty, but I had change in my pocket and it gave me a destination. After sloshing through one puddle in the dark, I didn’t bother trying to avoid the rest, just trudged along, icy water soaking my sneakers. When gravel crackled to my left, I spun and spotted a shape darting behind the motel. Which reminded me . . . Besides losing my powers, I was also the target of a witch-hunter. Apparently she’d found me again. I glanced toward my room. I should get Adam. Without my spells, I was— Powerless? Hardly. I was six feet tall and in great shape. The witch-hunter was a scrawny mouse of a girl, barely an adult, barely five-foot-five, with no apparent supernatural powers. I took another step, careful now, and instinctively started whispering a sensing spell under my breath. Then I stopped. Do it the old-fashioned way. Look and listen. I did, but couldn’t hear anything. Peering around the corner didn’t help. Then gravel crunched overhead. On the roof. A trick she’d pulled before. I should have been prepared. I looked around. There had to be a fire escape or trash bins I could climb— A loud noise sent me spinning, back to the wall, hands lifted for a spell. Tires squealed as a car roared past the motel. I looked down at my fingers, still outstretched, ready to cast. I inhaled sharply and clenched my fists. What if she did have a gun? Sure, I knew some martial arts, but I was no black belt. I’d learned grudgingly, knowing my spells were better than any roundhouse kick. I’d love to bring this kid down on my own, but the important thing was to stop her before she targeted another witch. Time to get backup. I was two doors from my room when a hand clamped on my shoulder. I spun, fingers flying up in a useless knockback spell. It was a man, a huge guy, at least three hundred pounds and a few inches taller than me. Beard stubble covered his fleshy face. He smelled like he’d showered in Jack Daniel’s. “You got a dollar?” he said. “I’m hungry.” He pointed at the vending machine. “I don’t got a dollar.” “Neither do I,” I said. He grabbed my arm and yanked me, his other arm going around my waist as he pulled me against him. I froze. Just froze, my brain stuttering through all the spells I couldn’t cast, refusing to offer any alternatives. “Let her go,” said a familiar voice. Adam walked over, hands at his sides, fingers glowing faintly, gaze fixed on the man. I snapped to my senses and elbow-jabbed the guy, who fell back, whining, “I just wanted a dollar.” Adam is my height and well built, but he’s no muscle-bound bruiser. Still the guy shrunk, then slithered off to his room. “Well, that was humiliating,” I said. “Tell you what, I’ll buy that new top for your Jeep if you promise never to tell anyone you rescued me from a drunk asking for spare change.” He didn’t smile. Just studied me, then said, “Let’s get inside.” “Can’t. My little witch-hunter has returned. She’s up on the roof. I was just coming in to get you for backup.” That gave him pause, but he only nodded, then peered up at the dark rooftop. “I’ll go around the rear and climb up. You cover the front.” I should have warned him that I was spell-free. I really should have. I didn’t. A few minutes later, gravel crunched on the roof again and I tensed, but it was only Adam. He walked to the front, hunkered down, and motioned me over. “No sign of her,” he whispered. “But I can’t see shit. Can you toss up a light ball?” “Is there a flashlight in the Jeep?” I asked. “That’d be easier.” “Sure.” He dropped the keys into my hand. “Glove box.”From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

NATIONAL BESTSELLER“Armstrong keeps the focus on hip, impulsive and likable Savannah, building suspense with plenty of plot reversals and betrayals. Fans of the series won’t want to miss what is clearly the first battle in an Otherworld war.” Publishers Weekly "Powerfully written.... Moves along at a sprightly clip, and Armstrong's senses of humour and suspense are spot on. She knows when to break the tension and when to ramp it up, as evidenced by the climax and dénouement. The reader who gets through that without feeling a bit ragged might want to be checked for a pulse." The Globe and Mail
