Urban Fantasy, Paranormal RomanceWelcome 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.
One comes to expect the very best when it comes to an author like Kelley Armstrong, and that is exactly what you get with this anthology. This book proves what a versatile writer this author is. You get a bit of everything in this book.
Each short story is very well written and leaves you wanting more. That is really the only complaint that I have. Some of the stories ended too soon. Or at least in my mind they did. I wanted them to go on. I am more familiar with the Otherworld Series, so in this book, I was introduced to her other works and found that I was quite intrigued. However, I didn't absolutely love every single story. There were one or two that were not my cup of tea. That being said I must still credit Ms. Armstrong because each and every one was superb in the way it was told, no matter how I felt about the story itself.
When one story ended I looked forward to seeing what the next had in store. It was kind of like Forest Gump and his box of chocolates because you never knew what you were going to get. That made it a fun read and kept me turning the pages.
Because all the stories were so well written I feel I must give this book five stars even if I didn't love every single one. I did love most of them however and feel if you are a fan of Kelley Armstrong this is a must read. If you've never read any of her work, this is a great way to be introduced.
