More of New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's most popular Otherworld characters get a chance to shine in this second short fiction collection, showcasing critical moments from many different lives.

Kelley Armstrong's readers have proven themselves a dedicated fan-base: her previous hardcover collection of short stories, Men of the Otherworld, appeared on the New York Times bestseller list, and Canadian lists too - despite three of the stories having been available, unedited and for free, for years on Armstrong's website. With a similar format - a handful of reedited stories and one wholly original novella - Tales of the Otherworld explores the lives of some of Armstrong's most popular characters, giving readers glimpses into how Clay and Elena met, how Eve and Kristof first hooked up (a brand new novella), and how Lucas and Paige got married. Kelley is a superstar of the genre, and Tales of the Otherworld is a great way to begin 2010.


From the Hardcover edition.

I loved this collection of short stories. It doesn't feel like a mishmashed, haphazard collection, hastily thrown together... rather, all of the stories in `Tales' offer new perspectives and insights into characters and side-stories. It sheds new light on the `Otherworld' universe.

Adored this book! This book was right up my alley as I love Kelley Armstrong, have really enjoyed all of her previous books, and am a big fan of short story collections. It's a win-win!

Several of my favorite characters make appearances, and it's nice to learn more of their history. Enjoyed all eight of the stories included (not sure why the blurb says there are seven), but my favorite two are Bewitched and Beginnings.

Bewitched gives us the story on how Eve Levine and Kristof Nast met and fell in love. It was nice to see a younger Eve who's not as confident and self-assured as we're used to, and the story gave a believable explanation for how these two total opposites came together.

Beginnings is similar to Bewitched in that we get the story of how two lovers met and fell in love, only this time it's Elena and Clay. I think that this is the longest story in the book, and it totally rocks! Elena and Clay are one of my favorite couples, and Kelley does a great job of walking us through their initial meeting and eventual courtship.

The book also includes stories featuring the vampires Aaron and Cassandra, werewolves Logan and Jeremy, Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne, and Savannah Levine Nast. Not a single boring story in the whole bunch
