A short story, 0.10 in the Women of the Otherworld urban fantasy series, revolving around a core group of characters. The couple focus is on Adam and Paige.

If you’re interested, there is a chronological listing of the Women of the Otherworld books on my website.

My Take

Adam and Paige are young in this, still learning their powers. And so very anxious to know what’s going on. Wanting some excitement, some adventure. They’re so cute.

Armstrong uses a third person protagonist point-of-view from Adam’s perspective. It’s okay. It’s real value is in that plot inside the plot…and getting a look-in at these two when they are young.

It’s a real learning experience.

The Story

It’s so frustrating to be kept out of those council meetings, and Paige and Adam are determined to listen in…with that really old-school device. Only Adam’s dad “catches” them outside the door and sends them out.

Out where the two see someone spying through a window. Writing in a notepad. And Paige and Adam are determined to take him down.

The Characters

Paige Winterbourne is a witch still learning her craft. Ruth is her mother and the leader of the Interracial Council as well as the leader of her coven.

Adam Vasic is a fire half-demon and Paige’s best friend. Robert is Adam’s dad and also on the council.

The Interracial Council is…
…an organization for supernaturals, excluding sorcerers, dedicated to preventing the misuse of power.

Leo is an Exaudio, a mid-level auditory-enhanced half-demon.

The Title

The title refers to Adam and Paige’s first adventure, “The Case of the Half-Demon Spy”.
