Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Smart-mouthed Eve Levine, a witch with a reputation for breaking the rules, may be dead, but as she proves in this overstuffed paranormal romance (a follow-up to Industrial Magic), she can still raise hell in the hereafter—which, in this case, is a curiously ordinary dimension in which ghosts like Eve and her also deceased former lover, a sorcerer named Kris, can bicker, have sex and use their paranormal powers. The Fates, three elusive sisters, are the rulers of this otherworldly dimension, and they have a job for Eve. If she can defeat a demonic Nix who's wreaking havoc in the human realm by inducing people to kill, she'll earn her wings—literally. The catch: she can't capture the Nix without the powers that angelhood affords. Eve surmounts this hurdle by teaming up with a hunky and humanlike angel named Trsiel, but her quest, which is fraught with obstacles as well as unnecessary distractions, is lengthy and meandering. In addition, Eve's kick-butt-ask-questions-later attitude, while amusing, can be wearying, and the rules of Armstrong's alternate world seem conveniently changeable. Still, those who appreciate heroines with a good measure of spunk, sass and strong-arm savvy will find this a fun if fitful read.

Review

"Armstrong has created a persuasive, finely detailed other-worldly cosmology — featuring sorcery, astral projection, spells, telepathy and teleportation."
Toronto Star

"Those who appreciate heroines with a good measure of spunk, sass and strong-arm savvy will find this a fun if fitful read."
Publishers Weekly

"Mesmerizing . . . the 'other-worldly' atmosphere conjured up by Armstrong begins to seem strangely real. Armstrong is a talented and original writer whose inventiveness and sense of the bizarre is arresting."
The London Free Press

Customer Reviews

This series of books continues to be a joy to read.
K. Sozaeva
Though Eve is now a ghost residing in the afterlife, she is very much still a fixture in her daughter's life, watching over her scrupulously.
Z Hayes
She has a great story, fast paced adventure, one tough heroine and an interesting universe.

Haunted by Kelley Armstrong, is another fantastic adventure in the Women of the Otherworld series. Haunted has a very unusual main character - Eve Levine, Savannah's mother and a ghost. Eve was a black witch and a half-demon when alive. She believed witch magic had been corrupted and diluted, as Paige discovers in Dime Store Magic. Eve has done many murky things to gain sorcerer and witch spells that she was able to use. This quest for greater power made Eve careless, which lead to her death before the events of Stolen occurred. While her death was a peripheral plot line in the series, the consequences where far reaching for Savannah. Much of Dime Store Magic was the result of Savannah coming to terms with her mother's death.

Haunted gives a great deal of insight into how Eve and Savannah are so much alike. Eve will not let go of Savannah and spends a great of her time in the afterlife checking up on her. Eve has been reunited with Kristof, Savannah's father, but will not allow him to be more then a friend. Kristoff is not your average Cabal sorcerer. He has regretted not pursing Eve and Savannah for 15 years and is determined not to make the same mistake a second time.

The Fates, overseers of the supernatural afterlife, have decided to call in the favor that Eve garnered at the conclusion of Industrial Magic. Eve is being sent on a mission to track a Nix, a Germanic demi-demon nymph who feeds off chaos. This particular Nix has been jumping from woman to woman giving them the necessary drive to murder. The Nix feeds off the chaos and anguish these murders create. Eventually she grows weary of her partner and devises a way for them to be caught and create even more chaos. The Fates have sent three previous hunters to catch the Nix and return her to hell.

I have loved all of the 5 books in this series. I like this one the very best. Contrary to what some reviewers have said, I like the familiarity with the characters and I also like the growth and development of the characters. This book was interesting with unexpected plotlines. Usually by the 5th book in a series, plots tend to become a rehash of the same old thing. However, with this Armstrong's books, it goes beyond what has gone before in new and surprising ways. The development of the supernatural worlds is always enjoyable. I dont expect Faulkner or Hemmingway when I read an Armstrong book, I expect fun and pleasure and that is what I find always.

I was skeptical at first, wondering how on earth I was going to identify with a main character who has no physical form, but Kelley Armstrong got me again. By the third chapter, I was hooked.

Thanks to consistent and believable "rules" in the world of her work, Eve's afterlife came alive for me. I wanted to see her prove herself worthy of the task assigned her and redeem herself in the eyes of all the readers who saw her as less-than-honorable from Paige's perspective over the course of the last two books. And she didn't disappoint me.

We already knew Eve was a good mother. Even Paige told us that. But through HAUNTED, we come to learn that she is also a good person, with a strong, if a bit tarnished, moral code of behavior. Sure she kills, and she doesn't try to hide that fact or make excuses for it. But she only kills those who deserve to die, and by the end, I was wishing she could have added a few more notches to her belt, as there were several bad guys worthy of her particular brand of justice.

The best part of this novel by far was how incredibly real Eve's angst felt over being unable to help, or to let go of her daughter. I was literally brought to tears twice, once by her horror and frustration as Savannah faces death and Eve is unable to do anything but watch. And again when she is realizes the inevitable conclusion: that life is for the living and she must let Savannah go, for the good of them both. I couldn't help feeling that Ms. Armstrong was writing about her own reluctance to let go of her children as they grow up, and based on the dedication, I think I may be right.

In HAUNTED, Ms.

Armstrong's 5th outing in the Women of the Underworld series is diverting, but doesn't achieve the same high quality that her previous books had, and is the first of her books that I can not award five stars to.

The trouble with this book is that there are long pieces set in the afterworld that do not add to the story, but seem to exist soley to entertain the writer. Eve's long visits to "Ghost-World Pirateland" and "Serial Killer Hell" in her hunt to catch the villain do not move the plot along nearly enough to justify the almost 100 pages Armstrong devotes to them, and only serve to bog down the action. Likewise, the final battle between Eve and the Nix, which also involves old favorites Lucas, Savannah, and Jaime, the necromancer, takes way too long to come its conclusion, and features a plot device that was never hinted at.

I enjoyed this book, but it's the first one by Armstrong that I will not be giving to any of my friends to read. I'm hopeful that her next book, which will feature Elena and the werewolves, will regain the taut suspense that Armstrong's earlier books had. Stephen King's best writing was done when his editors had the guts to edit him. Let's hope Armstrong is amenable the next time an editor offers a suggestion.
