URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Led Astray - Kelley Armstrong

Release Date: 15/09/15
Publisher:  Tachyon Publications


Welcome to the many worlds of New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong (Otherworld, Cainsville). As her SyFy channel series, Bitten, enters its second season, Armstrong continues to breathe new life into city-dwelling vampires, werewolves, and zombies. Now travel even further with her, to a post-apocalyptic fortress, a superstitious village, a supernatural brothel, and even feudal Japan.

In Led Astray, you’ll discover the stories of new characters from within and outside Armstrong’s popular novels. Here you will find two original tales from Cainsville, plus journeys to and beyond the worlds of Darkest Powers, Age of Legends, Otherworld, and more.

Bold and humorous, passionate and heart-stopping, here is Kelley Armstrong at her versatile best.


I love compendiums and when you get the chance to sit down with a ton of short stories from a favourite author there is something of not only a treat about it but a title that is there to not only entertain but make you feel like a kid again as you know that you have a lot of fun ahead of you.

What this title offers is a book that has a lot going for it and whilst these tales have appeared in other multi author releases this is the first time that they’ve been released as a single set. As usual with Kelley’s work it was not only a joy to read but really hit the spot, was great to dip into and a wonderful way to spend snatched reading time when I needed to escape from reality. All round it was great however my only real problem with this was that I’d have preferred to have it broken down so that all the relevant releases were together ie the Cainesville, the Otherworld and the others. That said though I did have fun with the book and can’t wait to see other short tales in future instalments.
