Otherworld Nights by Kelley Armstrong

Otherworld Stories, Book 3

Synopsis: 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.

Review:

Demonology
An interesting story about Adam and his childhood, how his mother managed the fact that he was changing, without knowing what he was exactly. It was touching to see how she fought to help his son and to understand him. 4/5

Twilight
I really did not remember Cassandra but it’s a pretty sad story that the author presents here. A young woman who can no longer live by killing and who is looking unconsciously for an end. Yet the man with her, the man she betrayed once, is doing his best to keep her alive. 4/5

stalked
I already had the opportunity to read this story and my review is here. http://www.betweendandr.com/2012/07/11/the-hunter-and-the-hunted-by-kelley-armstrong/

Chivalrous
I did not know Reese as I have not had a chance to read all the volumes of the series but it was interesting to get to know him, to experience his youth and see what he had to go through and we must say that nothing is simple for him here. 4/5

Lucifer‘s Daughter
A little story about Hope (I do not know about her either) and Karl, two people with different abilities. A half-demon and a werewolf who will have to manage an escaped spirit. 3/5

Hidden
Oh I loved this story. It is longer than those presented earlier and features Elena, Clay, their children and the entire band. It was a real pleasure to find them all for an unusual Christmas. A Christmas where the kids will understand who they really are and where Clay and Elena will have to protect their families and investigate two brothers. A very good story full of emotions. 5/5

From Russia with Love
Another very good story with all the characters we love and two years after Hidden, presenting us how Elena became Alpha. I completely fell in love with her ​​two little kids and I am curious to read more novels to find them again. 4/5

Vanishing Act
This time we have Savannah, Adam, Paige and Lucas. Kelley Armstrong presents a survey where all our characters appear, and a misunderstanding that occurs between Savannah and Adam about their relationship. 3.5 / 5

We find here some beautiful stories and I was happy to discover more about the world of the author. A good discovery.

  1. I didn’t have a great time with the first instalment in the series, but I found myself really loving this anthology. It was completely unexpected and I’m happy I gave it a go! I’ll probably give the whole series another try at some point.
    Glad you loved it as well, Melliane! 🙂

  2. I lost track of this series somewhere along the way, but I have a copy of the anthology and I absolutely can’t wait to read it. I’m glad you loved it, it makes me feel better about reading it.

  3. I have read some of Kelley’s series but Otherworld wasn’t one of them. I tried but it wasn’t for me then. Anyhow I’m really glad that you have enjoyed more or less all the stories. Great review, Melliane 🙂

  4. have not read anything by this author yet >.< but keep hearing wonderful things, I really should. Glad you enjoyed this one 🙂 I am not a big fan of Anthology books, but they have their purpose
