    " Really loved the history of Elena and Clay's relationship. When I first read Bitten I didn't like Clay at all and couldn't understand why Elena loved him after he had turned her against her will. This story gave insight into Clay and made me understand why he did it and why Elena would eventually forgive him. "

    " *** "Tales of the Otherworld" are eight short episodes, in chronological order by Kelley Armstrong, from boring to passionate. I like the first two, complete stories, not entangling too many names. "Rebirth" is Aaron, medieval farmboy, unknowingly inheriting vampirism from his mother, accidentally knifed while rescuing innocents, as usual. "Bewitched" is Eve Levine giving lessons, then giving in, to Mafia family style Cabal leader Kristof Nast, in a recent time when witches and sorcerers are oil and water. "Birthright" is teen Logan, experiencing heightened senses and restlessness, directed to werewolf pack headquarters by a note from his unknown father. "Beginnings", the longest, a complete romance, is how human Elena met Clay on his first job outside the pack, fell in love, and went home to meet his family, not knowing they were werewolves. The shortest and worst are "Expectations" - Lucas, the youngest Cortez son, steals a grimoire (evil spellbook) from Eve, now single mother of Savannah; "Ghosts" - Jeremy, pack leader, remembering suffering caged images of after Clay in wolf form bit Elena because he was terrified of losing her; "Wedding Bell Hell" - all the details of Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne (Savannah's guardian after Eve was killed) planning their wedding. "The Case of El Chupacabra" is confusing when narrated from different points of view. Long-winded pedantic Lucas and wife sexy Paige solve an apparent vampire murder, with a large otherworld cast including Aaron's mentor from the first tale. They decide to buy their first joint office where Savannah and Adam will help. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosanne | 5/1/2013

    " As I understand it, these stories were initially given out as free snippets to fans, which is wonderful, but that is also evident in the writing. These stories seem to skim the surface of the lives of these characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 1/27/2013

    " Finally I'm done it. It was really good, but my favorite story was Beginnings. I really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mariana | 12/4/2011

    " I really enjoyed most of the stories. Particularly Beginings with Elena and Clay. The final story with Lucas and Paige dragged. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 5/14/2011

    " Not bad at all. An entertaining read! Can't say I am a big fan of Robyn's character though. Never does as she is told even when others clearly know what's best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 5/6/2011

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 4/21/2011

    " Total different writing style - hard to follow, remember characters, and get into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cydney | 3/30/2011

    " The worst of the WOTW books so far, not much happening in this book, and the characters did not make me attached to them. Not bad really, just not up to par with the rest I have read in the series. Luckily, there are far better WOTW books to look forward to :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 3/9/2011

    " I liked the new style in which it was written. I really loved the new characters, Robyn and Fynn, and the missadventures they got into. It was a really nice read although sometimes I felt it the suspense was going to kill me and I just wanted to know what happened. It was totally worth it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Unwisely | 3/3/2011

    " Had sort of forgotten about this series for a few years there, but picked this up. It didn't require too much memory of the backstory, which is great because I don't remember all the details (although I did remember enough, when side characters were mentioned).

    Fun, fluffy, pleasant. "

About the Author
Author 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. All efforts to make her produce “normal” stories failed. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts, demons, and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She is the author of the Darkest Powers young adult urban fantasy trilogy, the Women of the Otherworld paranormal suspense series, and the Nadia Stafford crime series. She lives in southwestern Ontario, Canada, with her husband, kids, and far too many pets.
