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.

 

my thoughts

So I will admit to getting a tad flustered in the beginning while reading this book. I would get so engrossed in a story and then the story would come to an unexpected end and it would take a complete 180 turn taking on a scene from a new characters POV that initially I thought was unrelated. Thankfully things came back full circle and I was pleased with where we wound up. I’ve read very little Kelley Armstrong when you consider how much she has out there and I’ve actually read none of her Otherworld Nights series despite owning several of the books but after reading this anthology, I’m hooked! I want to know more and I cannot wait to dive into this series. I’ve already downloaded the reading order so I can get started.
Armstrong’s Otherworld Nights anthology is set in a well thought out world with extreme attention to detail. Despite the obvious fantasy she creates a believable environment that you want to step right into.

about the author

 

I’ve been telling stories since before I could write. My earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, mine would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to my teachers’ dismay. All efforts to make me produce “normal” stories failed. Today, I continue to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in my basement writing dungeon. WEBSITE | GOODREADS | AMAZON
