Kelley Armstrong captivated readers with her Sunday Times bestselling Women of the Otherworld series of supernatural thrillers. Now her characters return in this gripping anthology.
The collection begins with a brand-new novella featuring werewolf Karl Marsden and half-demon Hope, in what might be Karl's last heist. Meanwhile Elena and Clay are trapped in a wintry small town with a killer on the loose, in the fast-paced and atmospheric novella 'Forbidden'.
In 'Angelic', former black witch and part-time angel Eve is sent on a dangerous mission by the Fates, while necromancer Jaime tackles a ghost with a seriously bad attitude in 'The Ungrateful Dead'. Zoe Takano is forced to defend her territory in the hugely entertaining 'Zen and the Art of Vampirism'. And in the final novella, 'Counterfeit Magic', Paige Winterbourne and Lucas Cortez take on a troubling case that will change the couple for ever.
Ah winter nights, the darkness draws in, creatures of the night disembark from the shadows and try to deal with normal as well as supernatural problems and for me, one of my favourite authors really steps out to give me a whole host of characters with varying supernatural gifts.
They’re cracking to dip into and with bite sized tales to dive into are great for breaks as well as journey time to help you make the most of your day. All you need in addition to this is a nice glass of mulled wine or perhaps a hot chocolate and you’re set to escape from everyday hassles for a well-earned break and for me, that’s the magic of Kelley’s writing.
