Savannah, the teenage witch, is no longer a teenager. She's twenty-one and minding the detective agency while her guardians, Paige and Lucas, are on vacation when she gets the opportunity she's been waiting for - a case of her own.

I enjoyed Savannah as the narrator in Waking the Witch, and I enjoyed watching the investigation of the possibly ritual linked murders of three young women unfold and watching Savannah pick up clues that the local police have missed. But as the story progresses there are definitely some sad moments - so this is not a feel good read.

Even though Savannah gets a pretty good handle as to what's been going on with the killings, Waking the Witch leaves the story without real resolution. In fact author Armstrong gives Savannah's world a good hard shakeup at the end because as it turns out this is just the first of three books starring Savannah, and we readers are left with a metaphorical 'to be continued' when all is said and done.
