Kelley Armstrong returns to her beloved Women of the Otherworld series in this latest offering featuring seven “final” tales of the series.
Here’s the full table of contents:
“Brazen” – a werewolf tale mostly from Nick’s point of view
“Chaotic” – Hope and Karl’s first story
“Amityville Horrible” – a Jaime and Jeremy tale
“Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” – a vampire tale featuring Zoe
“Off-Duty Angel” – finds Eve on a mission for Kristof
“The Puppy Plan” – a holiday story featuring Logan
“Baby Boom” – a brand spanking new Paige/Lucas story
Considering this collection releases in October, it’s likely many will agree with me when I say “Amityville Horrible” is particularly delightful and appropriately creepy.
The stories are meaty novellas rather than shorts, giving readers a chance to settle in a bit with each tale. Fans of the series likely have seen a few of the selections before – “Chaotic” for example did appear in the Kim Harrison edited anthology Dates From Hell, and introduced Hope to the series, while “Off Duty Angel” appeared in Armstrong’s The Hunter and the Hunted e book/short back in 2012. But one entry, “Baby Boom,” is completely new to the collection. Plus, considering the series wrapped back in 2012 with the release of Thirteen, I’d bet fans have been craving a bit of a return to the characters we all came to know and love over the course of thirteen plus tales.
