Brief overview:

You should know that I love Kelley Armstrong and I love this series.  I’ve been actually sad just thinking the last book is coming out in about a month.  So when I saw that this was coming out I actually got really excited.  And then I looked at what the stories were about and I had one those moments where that bright smile falters a bit.  You’ll see why in my individual story review.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed this novella.  It actually has two very short stories and then quite a big preview of THIRTEEN, which I didn’t read because I want to enjoy the book fully when it comes out.  But I was a bit disappointed that the preview was really pretty much half of this ebook.


(Women of the Otherworld # 7.3)

This story was originally published in My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon (anthology) which I never read.  Basically Clay and Elena had their twins and were basically living as a married couple without being actually married.  So when they decide to make it official and then they go on their honeymoon, they thought they wanted what normal couples got in their honeymoon.  Except normal is boring for them.  And Elena finds herself being stalked by a mutt, but it’s Clay who notices right away.  I loved the fact that this story was from Clay’s POV.  I can still say Clay and Elena are my favorite couple in this series and it’s always enjoyable to read about them, but Clay’s mind is such a treat to be in.  Having not read the anthology this was originally published in, I actually enjoyed this story as new to me.


(Women of the Otherworld # 12.5)

Here’s the reason why my smile faltered.  Eve *might* be my least favorite character in the series.  I’ve never developed any attachment to her, probably because she is technically out of the picture already when the series pretty much gets going and then comes back.  Needless to say I was disappointed that the brand new story we were getting was Eve’s.  But it was kind of fun.  She’s been bored out of her mind with mindless research work until her DH gives her an assignment.  This takes her on a quest, jumping through different planes, and she actually made this story entertaining to the point that I liked her.  A lot of action and the story was very focused on Eve and hardly on Eve/Kristoff.

About Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.
