Author: Kelley Armstrong
Blurb: Rare and never-before published short stories featuring fan favorites from the New York Times bestselling series
It’s been more than ten years since Kelley Armstrong began the Otherworld series and drew legions of fans to a realm roamed by witches, werewolves, necromancers, vampires, and half-demons. Many of the novels have become bestselling favorites, but not all of the Otherworld adventures have been easy to find. At last, Otherworld Nights shares short stories that have previously been available only online or in obscure collections. Fans have long been clamoring for this anthology and they won’t be disappointed—they’ll find plenty of surprises are in store.
Features: 1) Demonology – Adam’s mother discovers what he is
2) Stalked – Clay/Elena honeymoon story from “My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon”
3) Hidden – SubPress 2012 Elena/Clay novella
4) Twilight – a Cass story from “Many Bloody Returns”
5) Chivalrous – Reese’s backstory from SubPress’s long sold-out “Tales of Dark Fantasy 2” (the Dec’14 SubPress graphic novella picks up this storyline)
6) Lucifer’s Daughter – Hope/Karl story from “Blood Lite II: Overbite”
7) From Russia with Love – Elena bonus story included with hardcover of “Thirteen”
8) Vanishing Act – brand-new Savannah/Adam novella set after “Thirteen“
Thoughts: I have long been a fan of Kelley Armstrong, and I was eager to grab this selection of short stories (some of which I had read already, some which were new to me). It’s a great anthology, though some of the stories are better than others. The ones featuring Elena and Clay, of course, in particular stand out…J Some of them were a bit disjointed….for example, Demonology, where Adam’s mother first discovers what he really is. I was really enjoying the story and wanted more from it. Great collection, and makes me miss more from this fabulous world by this fabulous author!
