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.
As you may or may not know; Kelley Armstrong is one of my absolute favoritest (yes I know that’s not a word) authors. I adored reading Men of the Otherworld (review) and am hoping that this compilation of tales will deliver once again. Elena and Clay are in it so how could it not? I don’t buy hard covers though, even of my favoritest (again!) authors’ books. Maybe after I win the lottery I will but until then I’ll wait until March 22, 2011 when the paperback will be released.

This was a GREAT read! I read it earlier this year and I love the story with how Elena and Clay met!
Here’s a link to my review if you’re curious: http://jessica-agreatread.blogspot.com/2010/05/review-tales-of-otherworld.html
I STILL need to read this series. I have it sitting here in my TBR pile, I must get to it soon!
Happy Hump Day!
Jessica – I’m looking forward learning about that!
Crystal – I know what you mean. It’s so hard to choose which books to read from the TBR pile because it’s HUGE!
I am in the same boat as you, I don’t buy hardcovers and have to wait forevs to get my own copy of this book… :/
Thank goodness for the library! 😉
But as I have mentioned, it is really great and you will not be disappointed!
Avery – I’m outta luck in the library department. I live in the middle of no where so my local library has a VERY limited selection. I could get a membership at the city one but there’s a pretty high cost because I’m not a resident and a major detour for me. 🙁
My dad has been writing a book precisely on point with this blog, I have emailed him the web address so perhaps he could pick up a couple pointers. Fantastic Job.
Calendario 2011 – Cool! He’s more than welcome to contact me anytime. I’m always happy to chat.
