Product Description

Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

“There is something for everyone between the covers. Fans of the Otherworld can find out more about their favourite characters, and many new readers will be intrigued enough to pursue the novels. The book is a win-win situation for any reader.”
 — The Globe and Mail

Praise for Kelley Armstrong:
“Like Stephen King, . . . Armstrong not only writes interesting page-turners, she has also achieved that unlikely goal, what all writers strive for: a genre of her own. . . . This is not The Call of the Wild; it’s Nora Roberts meets The Sopranos by way of Henry David Thoreau.”
The Walrus

Praise for Men of the Otherworld:
"The intriguing tales, originally published as serials on Armstrong's web site, unfold so fluidly that they read almost like a novel, providing a good introduction to new readers and a real treat for fans."
Publishers Weekly

"It truly is a treat, even for those not familiar with Armstrong's previous work…. No matter which man is narrating…Armstrong creates a distinct and engaging voice and depth of character while maintaining her own sophisticated style."
Winnipeg Free Press

Praise for Living With the Dead:
"As Armstrong readers have come to expect, this book is balanced between likable characters and the creepy evil that they fight, all wrapped together with nonstop, edge-of-your-seat action."
Library Journal

"Rarely is the ninth book in a series as fresh and entertaining as the first, but this Women of the Otherworld volume defies the odds."
Booklist

Kelly Armstrong rarely makes a misstep and certainly does not make any with this collection. She creates warm, complicated, tender and tautly written stories and characters. I have read her previous books and am familiar with the characters in this one but I believe someone could pick this up as their first Kelly Armstrong book and be as involved as I was.
Her characters are almost always very bright, complex and articulate. They also are decent, even when they may be confused, self-centred or selfish. They bruise more easily than they want known and can be touching, very funny, self aware and vulnerable. There is not a cliche to be found in this book and each story ended long before I wanted it to. Armstong respects each of her creations and controls her work with a steady hand.
I have several favourite paranormal writers but she is the only one to whom I would like to write a fan letter. She is Canadian and we are very lucky to be able to claim her. I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying this book.I could not put it down.

'Tales of the Otherworld' is a collection of short stories and novellas set in Armstrong's 'Women of the Otherworld' series. All of these short stories were initially e-serials, available for free on Armstrong's website as a sort of 'gift' to her fans.

Fans aren't disgruntled by the fact that these previously free stories are no longer available online ' because (as Armstrong says in her author's introduction) after she published her e-serials the number 1. fan question was 'when will they be available in book form?'. Well, that time has finally arrived. And Armstrong's even gone so far as to donate the proceeds of 'Tales' to the World Literacy of Canada ' a nonprofit volunteer organization. Wow. As if fans needed another reason to heap praise on this legendary paranormal author'

'Tales of the Otherworld' is a collection of 8 short stories featuring some beloved character, and a few secondary ones. Only 1 short story is original, and never before been available for download.

'Rebirth' is the story of Aaron, and his transition from human to vampire.

'Bewitched' is the new story in the collection, and is all about Eve Levine (Savannah's mother). The story is a 'prologue' of sorts, recounting how Eve met and became lover to Kristof Nast.

'Birthright' is the back-story to a deceased werewolf pack member. It explains how Logan discovered his werewolf heritage and journeyed to Stonehaven to come face-to-face with his father for the first time.

'Expectations' follows Lucas Cortez in an early investigation of his.

'Ghosts' is another time-filler, set during the timeline of 'Bitten' when Jeremy is left alone at Stonehaven.

Kelly did not disappoint with this book. The story about Clay and Elena was great. The background information is something I have always needed to help explain the why and how of the characters. Keep them coming Kelly

Kelley Armstrong is an awesome writer! I love the whole Otherworld series and "Tales of the Otherworld" is a great follow up. It helps bring all of the stories together and gives the background that the other books hinted at.
Thanks Kelley! Keep them coming!
