Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong

I fell in love with Kelley Armstrong as an author when I read her Darkest Powers Series and realized she has this whole other wonderful series that I had to try. The Otherworld series has books, free online stories, novellas and books of novellas that are involved in it. Tales of the Otherworld is one of the books of novellas featuring characters in this fabulous series. On Kelley's website she said you do not have to read them in order but I am just because I like to do things in an order. I'm wierd like that.

I really enjoyed reading all of these short novellas. I like getting the nitty-gritty of characters like Clay and Kristof. I do not know there full stories because I am just beginning to read all the stories involved but I am hooked. I love it.

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.
