With tales that range from humorous to heart-stopping, these are the stories that showcase Kelley Armstrong at her versatile best.
Led Astray had me eagerly reaching to read the Otherworld stories as they are my personal favourite. If frank, I was a little disappointed as the couple I adore (Clay and Elena) are mentioned here, but sadly not present and I suspect I'm not the only one missing them. The Pack is present though, so watch out for the story V Plates and even vampire Zoe is featured in the stories Learning Curve and The List.
If Cainsville is the series that enchants you, then settle down and enjoy learning more about the town's inhabitants and in particular, Gabriel, in the stories Gabriel's Gargoyle and Devil May Care. I confess I've not yet started that series but this intriguing glimpse has me itching to begin.
As for the other stories here, well it was an interesting mixture of just about anything you can imagine. We get a glimpse at a post apocalyptic world in Branded, zombies in both Last Stand and V Plates, there's even a nod to Hell Raiser and Pin Head in The Collector! So lots to entertain but also poignant stories because Ms Armstrong reaches out and squeezes her readers’ hearts in both Dead Flowers by a Roadside and Suffer the children. If a twist in the tale is what grabs your attention, then dive into Rakshasi or Plan B but most of all, read this collection and judge for yourselves.
I truly was gripped but sadly did miss my favourite characters and had read one or two shorts before, but if you are new to this author's work then I’m pretty confident you will be very satisfied and hooked just like the rest of her fans. Shocks, horror, grief, magic and a little romance this collection.
