Got a question for you. What is better than finding a copy of Kelley Armstrong’s Waking the Witch in the mail? How about two copies? Thanks to the generous people at Wunderkind PR, I get to give away an ARC of Waking the Witch – this is one of those times when I love what I do.
At twenty-one, Savannah Levine-orphaned daughter of a notorious dark witch and an equally notorious cutthroat sorcerer-considers herself a full-fledged member of the otherworld. The once rebellious teen has grown into a six-foot-tall, motorcycle-riding jaw-dropper, with an impressive knowledge of and ability to perform spells. The only problem is, she’s having a hard time convincing her adoptive parents, Paige and Lucas, to take her seriously as an adult. She’s working as the research assistant at the detective agency they founded, and when they take off on a romantic vacation alone, leaving her in charge, Savannah finds herself itching for a case to call her own. (She’s also itching for Adam, her longtime friend and colleague, to see her as more than just a little girl, but that’s another matter.)
Suddenly, Savannah gets the chance she’s been waiting for: Recruited by another supernatural detective, she travels to Columbus, Washington, a small, dying town. Two troubled young women have been found in an abandoned warehouse, murdered. Now a third woman’s dead, and on closer inspection small details point to darker forces at play. Savannah feels certain she can handle the case, but with signs of supernatural activity appearing at every turn, things quickly become more serious- and far more dangerous-than she realizes.
Waking the Witch is the eleventh novel in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series and I’ve been told you could read this as a stand alone. Granted, reading the previous novels will give you a little more character development on a few of the supporting members (or so I’m assuming), but if you’ve been wanting to try this series, why not start now?
So how do you enter? Easy. As with all of LE’s contests, all you have to do is answer this question: Who is your favorite character from Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series and why? If you haven’t read the series, what is it about the series that makes you want to?
In order to enter, you have to answer the above question(s). As always, there’s more ways of getting your name in the hat (these aren’t mandatory to enter, just extra entries for anyone who really wants to win):
- +1 for each place you post about today’s contest on your blog, social network, or anywhere you can. Digg it, stumble it, twit it, share it with the world. Wherever you share it, make sure you add a link to it along with your answer.
- +1 to any review you comment on, however, comments must be meaningful. Just give me the title of the review and I’ll be able to figure it out from there.
- +1 for entering Loucinda McGary’s contest for a copy of The Wild Irish Sea. (contest has ended)
- +1 for entering Kathryne Kennedy’s contest for a copy of The Fire Lord’s Lover.
- +1 If you are a follower of Literary Escapism on Facebook and/or Twitter

There is one thing I am adding to my contests now…the winner must post a review of the novel someplace. Whether it is on their own blog, Amazon, GoodReads, LibraryThing or wherever, it doesn’t matter. Just help get the word out.
I have not been contacting winners, so you will need to check back to see if you’ve won.
