Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong

Industrial Magic (Women of the Otherworld Series #4)  Industrial Magic is the fourth book in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series.  Like the previous entry in the series, Dime Store Magic, this book is written from the point of view of Paige Winterbourne, a witch.  In Dime Store Paige began dating Lucas Cortez, son of Benicio Cortez and heir apparent to the Cortez Cabal.  Lucas has spent his adult life avoiding his father and fighting in his small way, against the Cabals, but when someone starts killing the children of Cabal members and employees Paige finds herself drawn into the search for killer.  And once Paige is involved, Lucas won't be far behind.

I really enjoyed Industrial MagicDime Store Magic started off a little slow,  but Industrial Magic captured my attention pretty quickly and kept it.  The complicated relationship between Lucas and his father was better drawn in this book.  In the previous book their relationship was very black-and-white: the cabals are bad, therefore Benicio is bad and Lucas, with his anti-cabal crusade, is good.  Here their relationship was a bit more complex, which I appreciated.

Industrial Magic also introduced a new character to the Otherworld universe - Jaime Vegas, a necromancer and Savannah's favorite television personality.  (Savannah is the kid Paige took in in the previous book.)  Jaime and Jeremy Danvers (a werewolf from the two first books in the series, Bitten and Stolen) meet for the first time in this book.  I have a feeling something good is in store for these two.  Unfortunately I think I have to wait until book 7 to find out.  On the upside, that means there are several more books in this series to look forward to.
