Counterfeit Magic by Kelley Armstrong
*note* This is a novella, and not one of Kelley's regular novels.
Savannah and Paige penetrate the underground fighting world on a case which involves a supernatural fight club which has had a death connected to it. These clubs have very strict rules against serious injury and/or death since well supernatural powers are pretty deadly and that would scare away the fighters.
I loved this little glimpse back into the world of Paige and Lucas. We haven't had anything from Paige's point of view in a long time, and the recent book features Savannah but Paige really isn't around at all.
This is really a book for fans rather than for new readers as it was published from Subterranean Press, which publishes wonderful collector's stuff btw... (not affiliated, just love them!). There isn't really enough time to give the proper background for new readers.
The story itself deals with some of the issues of Paige being the wife of Lucas as he delves into the world of the Cabals, which was a dimension I enjoyed. The fight club thing was also a great extension of the world Armstrong has created. Basically, fans should try to get their hands on it if they can, but it's not essential.
Star Rating: 4.0/5.0

I think there are still a few copies left over at Subterranean Press if you want to snag one!
