Book Description

Previously published in the print anthology Dates From Hell.

Kelley Armstrong returns to the Otherworld with "Chaotic," where a half-demon tabloid journalist's boring date is a supernatural explosion? She's off to save the day—if only her less-than-stellar date wouldn't tag along! Luckily, the intriguing, infuriating, and just plain sexy werewolf/jewel thief Karl Marsten also appears.

1.0 out of 5 stars DUPED AGAIN -- Reprint from another book! February 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate wasting my money. Too many kindle short stories seem to be rip-offs where the publisher takes each novella from an anthology and reprints it separately as a "NEW" item. That's not a bad idea, except no mention is made that the novella is a REPRINT from the anthology. URRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH! Usually I am pretty savvy but I got duped again. Buyer beware ....

3.0 out of 5 stars Quickie Adventure January 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I suspect if you are not a rabid Kelly Armstrong fan who has already hunted the print form of this novella from the collection Dates From Hell then there isn't much in this piece for you.

The story is fine - a typical Armstrong action/sex/action conclusion/sex conclusion plot, with a dash of humour.

Overall though nothing stand-out, just a decent supernatural jaunt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love The Otherworld series February 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
CHAOTIC by Kelley Armstrong

CHAOTIC is a novella in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. The short story was first published in the anthology Dates From Hell, but was released in ebook format January 2012. Chaotic features half-demon Hope Adams and werewolf Karl Marsden. The readers were first introduced to Karl in Kelley's first novel of the Otherworld series-Bitten.

Hope Adams is a half-demon, who thrives on chaos. As a journalist working for a tabloid newspaper, chaos is the perfect set-up for her powers- finding and reporting news from the world of the paranormal. But, a tabloid journalist is the perfect cover for investigating the evil side of the paranormal world. Thinking she has been sent on assignment for the Council of Interracial Beings, Hope is sent to a charity function at a local museum, waiting for a story to break.

Karl Marsden is a werewolf, whose current occupation-that of a thief-has led him to the museum function, hoping to steal a rare collection of diamonds and jewels. Karl is the epitome of the handsome rogue-well dressed, debonair and extraordinarily handsome. But an accidental encounter with a beautiful woman has left him shaken. And now, this same woman is shadowing his every move throughout the museum.

When Hope witnesses Karl's theft of the jewels, she believes it is her duty to make an arrest on behalf of the Council, but when she calls to report the theft to her `superior' at True News-Tristan Robard-she is surprised when Karl points out that the Council does not have `agents' in the field. Disgruntled and confused, Hope questions Tristan about her latest assignment, only to find out that she is holding a werewolf hostage, in a janitorial closet, waiting for the Council to apprehend the thief.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had read in proper order! June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finished reading the regular series before reading the novellas. although not strictly necessary some thing would have made more sense if I had. I miss the longer books but will take what I can get! I love this author's Other work series and only wish there were more!

I've read two other books by Kelley in the Bitten series. This one is just as good as the others. The characters are believable and we get to meet someone new, Hope

Another excellent story behind 2 of the Otherworld characters. If you like Armstrong's Otherworld, you will love this too. Short but sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chaotic April 2, 2014

Great story. I loved the way Hope and Karl met. Though a novella, all the elements were there. Excitement mounting as they work together to get out of the predicament they find themselves in. Oh and how their romance gets started. It won't be a cakewalk for Karl. Hope finds Karl charming but not the way he wants, she finds him attractive but not the way Karl hopes. You all need to read this and all the rest of Kelleys books and meet the rest of the players of this fantastic series.
