Overview

Return to the world of Kelley Armstrong's best-selling novels Dime Store Magic and Industrial Magic for a long original novella.

The first rule of a supernatural fight club? Don't kill your opponent.

When the fighters come with lethal spells, werewolf strength and half-demon powers, that can be a lot tougher than it sounds. It's hard to attract talent if they know they might not leave the ring alive. So when fighters at a California club start dying -- it's bad for business.

Witch detectives Paige Winterbourne and Savannah Levine take the case. Going undercover in the power-heavy arena of the fight club is a welcome change of pace for Paige, relegated to the role of The Wife as her husband struggles to find his place in his family's Cabal--the corporate Mafia of the supernatural world.

As Paige is drawn deeper into new and dangerous corners of her world, she quickly discovers the greatest threat isn't the killer in her sights. It's something much, much closer to home. And this is one fight she can't afford to lose.

As always Kelley Armstrong never lets me down. As one of my favorite authors she has once again showed us that the story is never over. One of the many things I love about Armstrong's writing is that she continues to show us that the characters keep living on even after the story is finished. In Counterfeit Magic she shows us more of the relationship of Lucas and Paige which continues to grow and shows us that sometime things aren't always we think they are. You also get to see a little more of Savannah's powers unfolding and growing into the powerful supernatural she is promised to become. Over all I found the book intriguing and I had a hard time putting it down. The only flaw I found is that I'm always left wanting more. I would definitely recommend Counterfeit Magic for a quick read.

Kelley has created her own little world within our world with this series of books that leaves you looking around your world and wondering. Is it possible? This continues on Page and Lucas's story, but is essentially as story in itself. You don't have to have read all the others to enjoy this story, but if you have, come and enjoy another with Page and Lucas. Their life is never boring! Its a great little escape from mine!

Paige is back in the most current edition of Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Other World Counterfeit Magic. Mysterious deaths are happening at an underground fight club, and Paige is determined to solve this case regardless of her client's obvious interest in her husband. But Paige trusts Lucas. Doesn't She? Trouble is brewing in martial paradise for Paige and Lucas. The story picks up a few years into the future like Waking the Witch where Savannah is fully legal, Adam is a partner in her and Lucas' PI firm, and Lucas is trying to balance the life he wants with his responsibilities to the kabal. A beautiful young teleporting half demon wants to have her brother's death investigated and she only wants Lucas to work her case. With their new client hell bent on seducing Lucas, Paige is questioning their relationship and highlighting the fractures that are becoming more apparent in her and Lucas' marriage. The closer Paige gets to solving the case the least she's trusts her husband. But all is not what it seems. There's a twist to this case. Someone's manipulating things behind the scenes trying to rip Paige's life apart for their own gains. Will their plan work, or can Paige manage to figure out what's really going on before it's too late. I found this book lacking a bit as compared to others in this series. I got the audio book version thinking I was getting a pretty good deal on the price, but realized it was less than three hours long. And it was unabridged. This is more of a novella or an after thought. It would have been nice to know beforehand, but it wasn't stated in the audible and itunes overview. Plus it seemed too good to be true that another release from Armstrong would come so soon after Waking the Witch, and I guess it was. I definitely don't think a book of this size would be worth the cost of a hardcover edition. I found the story to be ok but nothing spectacular. More or less just an after thought. FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN ANYTHING AS FRIVOLOUS AS CONTENT DON'T BUY THIS BOOK. IF YOUR REAL INTEREST IS COVER ART THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU. I find it disheartening when the actual writing in a book is secondary to the packaging. As one of my fellow reviewers put it, " I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised." I take it the bar was set really low in the first one Angelic. I find nothing collectible about a throw away piece. The most disappointing part was that this story had the bones for a good solid novel, but instead was used in a way that makes me feel like the publisher is more interested in turning lead into gold by dressing up mediocrity. I personally would rather invest in collectible books that are not only beautiful on the outside but well written and engaging on the inside. One of my comments mentioned that they enjoy little stories about their favorite characters and I agree but Counterfeit Magic is the kind of back story authors provide as freebies on their sites. If you are interested in more than a cover do yourself a favor and don't buy this in any form wait for Armstrong to post it free on her website or check it out at a library. It's not worth the money.
