'Men of the Otherworld' is a beautifully bound collection of these stories. Two novellas, 'Savage' and 'Ascension' chronicle Jeremy Danvers' perilous rise to the Alpha throne seen through the eyes of his adopted son, Clayton. Clay, a misanthrope whose wit, and delightful moral ambiguity have made him a popular fan favorite since his first appearance in 'Bitten', provides readers with a unique insider's look at Pack life. It's interesting to hear his narrative voice change as he matures from a feral bitten child into an intelligent young man eager to embrace his role as Jeremy's best and most feared enforcer.
Two short stories bookend the novellas. 'Infusion' teases readers with its hints at Jeremy's true parentage, while 'Kitsunegari' actually reveals who, or more appropriately what, Jeremy's mother was before she met her violent and untimely end.
These stories are a real treat, and since all the proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the World Literacy of Canada, it is truly a guiltless pleasure.
I started reading this a few days ago and haven't been able to put it down! AND i've been laughing throughout the book b/c of Clay's thoughts when he was a child!! (priceless!!!)
This book is about the Men of the Wolf Pack. It gives in depth detail about Jeremy and Clay along w/ the older men in the Pack. It follows the men from the birth of Jeremy, the discovery of Clay, the "house breaking" of Clay, the first meeting of Clay w/ the Pack, the first fight that Clay has, etc. It's great history for fans that love the stories about the Pack.
I've been enjoying this book immensely and I can't wait for her next book about Elena & Clay which should come out in Nov. of this year!
I won't summarize the plot line as many have already done that. I was surprised to find that a werewolf pack is almost completely a man's world. Jeremy and Clay were both raised with little to no female influence. I learned more about Clay in this book than any of the books with him and Elena. I was touched by how much he loves Jeremy and and now understand why his loyalty is absolute. It was so interesting to learn about Clay's early life. Housebreaking that boy was not an easy task! Clay was very lucky to have Jeremy as a father figure, Jeremy wasn't so lucky having Malcolm. Malcolm is unapologetically evil and tried very hard to corrupt Clay. Had Clay not been so devoted to Jeremy he might have succeeded.
You won't want to miss the latest installment in Kelly Armstrong's fascinating series. It is a well written tale that kept me enthralled from beginning to end.
"Savage". In 1967 in Baton Rouge, the six year old child watched from the trees the adult change. He decided he wanted that skill too so balckmails the wolf by insisting he will not tell the secret into biting him. However, no one was there to mentor Clayton with the change until Jeremy took him under his wing two years after the bite. As Clayton learns to control his nature, Pack member Malcolm resents him for becoming Jeremy's favorite.
"Kitsunegari". In 2007 Jeremy has become the American Pack leader. He is wating for his Jaime to finish work when he meets a fox spirit, who insists she is for him as befitting the last Kogitsune while trying to seduce him.
Following up to her wonderful Women of the Otherworld saga (see LIVING WITH THE DEAD and PERSONAL DEMON), Kelly Armstrong provides fascinating tales of the males of the American Pack. Within "Infusion" and "Savage", there is insight into other male werewolves, which gives the collection a sort of anecdotal feel yet still focuses on the prime characters as described above. Ms. Armstrong once again provides a terrific urban fantasy anthology with this werewolves in New York compilation.
