Here's the issue I had with this book. Kelley Armstrong is eminently readable even when I hate the characters or the relationships they have. Ordinarily I would ignore the 'too stupid to live' antics of the majority of her characters, I would even ignore the utter knuckle dragging 'alpha male' bollocks that many of her male characters suffer from. (Karl Marsten) I would ignore a good deal of that because the plots are engaging and I do love her books. Some of the time her main characters are majorly boring (Paige I am so looking at you) but usually the protagonists are fun, the books are readable, fun and I enjoy them. That being said... I really dislike parts of this book and it was down to the plot...What the hell was going on? Why are we set up to discover about Savannah's missing powers and her possible realisation that her relies them too much, only to be given a missing kid, some Supernatural Civil Rights army and some woeful guff about 'a war is coming'. And what the hell was up with the Witch hunters? I mean there's not a mention of them before in a book series that spans a decade or so and yet... here's a functioning batch of witch hunters.
Most of the characters from earlier books turn up, but I can't really tell you what the hell happened. I still hate Adam as a potential love interest for Savannah because it comes across as extremely creepy (Like Jacob/Renesmee creepy) And Savannah herself is a woeful spoil brat. She tries to mature but she doesn't... not one jot in the entire book. She makes no effort to work without her magic and she's even more of a damsel in distress than Hope (And I love Hope) At least in Waking the Witch Savannah was proactive, despite being an insufferable brat, but in this, she's just an insufferable brat.
It was still readable but it really wasn't her best work.
