SUMMARY

Sunday Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong captivated readers with her Women of the Otherworld series of supernatural thrillers. In this new anthology, favourite characters return in stories of drama, danger and desire. Legendary werewolf partners Elena and Clay stalk the pages of this book, along with vampires, witches, half-demons and sorcerers. Filled with fan favourites and rarities, Otherworld Nights concludes with a brand-new novella, 'Vanishing Act'. This thrilling longer story is set after the events of series finale 13, and features much-loved characters Savannah and Adam as they begin a new life—and a mysterious new case—together.

MY REVIEW

I've only read one novel, "Bitten", in the Women of the Otherworld series a few years ago, and I wasn't quite impressed by it. I remember the book didn't particularly involve me and I didn't continue with the series. Then the UK publisher asked me to review this anthology and I thought that—even if a bit risky—it could have been a good way to give Armstrong's world another go. Now, imagine my surprise when not only I really enjoyed the read, but I also found myself wanting to go back and grab the other instalments as well. Although I've been clearly spoiled, the stories in here made me curious to the point that I don't care, I just want to find out more about every character, couple and legend.

Every novella was compelling and made me feel something for the ones involved and, considering my first experience with the series, for me this was a big improvement. Kudos to the author for making even a 'new' reader feel part of her magic world!

RATING: 4/5
