5th sentence, 74th page: Nick looked toward the window, where he could pick up the distant wail of a siren.
In this thrilling and hugely entertaining collection of novellas and short stories, Kelley Armstrong returns one last time to her bestselling Otherworld series.
Among other tales, the werewolf pack is on the hunt for an old and very dangerous enemy; two very different vampires attempt to settle an old feud; a supernatural date turns hot enough to burn down a building and – in a brand-new novella – Paige and Lucas have a huge decision to make about their future.
Featuring much-loved characters, this final collection completes several important storylines, making it a must-have for Kelley Armstrong’s many fans.
What a way to end a fantastic series. Although some of these stories take place throughout the greater range of the storyline, the final two short stories (and one of the novellas) in this collection bring you back to the events after 13 in some of the characters’ lives. It was incredibly sad to finish the last story (Baby Boom), but on the same token, really satisfying. After all, it’s taken me almost two years of spasmodic reading to actually complete the entire series, beginning to end.
Actually, I cried a little turning the last page – this entire series was an experience and a joy, and something that I probably won’t forget. Yet, the way in which Armstrong has finished it off is so open ended that you can imagine the characters continuing to live their lives and have their adventures.
