A suspenseful, sexy new collection of stories and novellas, both original and curated by the author from her short fiction.
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 being a new life – and a mysterious new case – together.
I loved, loved, loved this collection of Women of the Otherworld short stories. In between some of the stories, it was nice to revisit favourite characters. This collection also provided a greater backstory to Adam’s childhood and Aaron and Cassandra’s relationship. Both aspects of the characters which I hadn’t quite had a chance to enjoy or understand.
I love that although there are only thirteen primary works in this series, there are a number of short stories and novellas which help to flesh out the world. Otherworld Nights had a feeling of the things that go bump in the night, and the cold, dark, Russian winter. It was a great collection that left me smiling when I finally finished it.
