About the Author

Kelley Armstrong is the New York Times bestselling author of the Women of the Otherworld series. She has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. All efforts to make her produce "normal" stories failed. Today she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves while safely locked in her basement writing-dungeon.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Stories About Characters We Love April 14, 2010
Format:Hardcover
I must first say that I am a great fan of Kelley Armstong, I love her characters, her plots, and her writing style. With Tales of the Otherworld, like her previous anthology for charity, Men of the Otherworld, Armstrong is giving her readers more glimpses into the lives of characters we love from her series. This anthology includes: Rebirth (the story of how Aaron became a vampire), Bewitched (the story of how Eve and Kristof Nast got together), Birthright (about how Logan discovered his werewolf ancestry), Beginnings (how Elena and Clay got together), Expectations (a story of an early investigation by Lucas), Ghosts (this takes place during Bitten, when Jeremy sends Elena and Clay to Toronto and is left at Stonehaven), Wedding Bell Hell (Paige and Lucas's wedding), and The Case of El Chupacabra (a case Lucas and Paige investigate at the behest of Sean Nast). Some of these stories Armstrong had posted on her website for fan consumption, but I had not read Bewitched or The Case of El Chupacabra before, which makes me pretty sure they're brand new. Even though I had read the others before, when I got the book I reread them all and enjoyed it immensely!
Many of the details in these stories have been referenced in the novels, and these fill in the gaps in reader knowledge. Rebirth was my least favourite, that not to say I didn't like it, but I was not as intrigued as I was by the others. Cassandra and Aaron are great characters, but I liked them more in El Chupacabra than I do in this story. Bewitched made me like Eve more than I have in Haunted and Angelic, and will make everyone sad we didn't get to see Kristof more before he died. Birthright was a sad one, simply because we know how little time Logan had with the Pack, but I loved seeing Clay and Jeremy from an outsider's perspective.

I love the Women of the Otherworld series and this is an excellent addition to the mix.

When Armstrong began her career, she wanted to do something to thank her readers so she put free fiction on her website. Readers loved it but they asked her "When will they be in a book?" Armstrong waited until she could do it with a charitable project, which she did with Men of the Otherworld. Tales of the Otherworld is the second collection of eight short stories and all of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to World Literacy of Canada, which is "dedicated to promoting international development and social justice."

The first story, Rebirth, tells the story of how Aaron became a vampire. I have to tell you that I didn't know who Aaron was until I read the last story of the book. I really need to reread some of the earlier books and make notes so I can keep track of all of the characters! Aaron is the second in command of the north American vampires, working with Cassandra. It's quite a short story so to tell you more would give away too much. Let's just say Aaron wasn't that excited about being a vampire.

Bewitched is the story of how Eve met and fell in love with Kristof, thus producing Savannah. And, how it came to be that Kristof didn't know about Savannah until after Eve died. Dime Store Magic and Industrial Magic are my favorite of the entire series, so I was happy to see this one included. I always thought there had to be more to Eve and Kristof than we first thought.

Birthright is Logan's story. At least the story of how he came to the Pack. He was raised with his mother and never knew anything about his father until, on his 18th birthday, he receives a letter with nothing more than the name of Jeremy Danvers and his address.

5.0 out of 5 stars fans of the Otherworld April 17, 2010
Format:Hardcover
The second Otherworld short story collection (see Men of Otherworld) is a superb compilation that enhances knowledge of characters in the saga. As stated by Kelley Armstrong in the Introduction to the eight story anthology, "Beginnings" and "The Case of El Chapacabra" were written previously and placed on the author's website. In "Rebirth", Aaron learns of his vampire bloodline. "Bewitched" half-demon Eve and corporate sorcerer Kristof prove opposites attract. Logan Jonson seeks his "Birthright" when at eighteen he is about to meet his father Jeremy Danvers and unwittingly the pack for the first time. Elena of "Bitten" fame tells of her "Beginnings". The wedding of the year between Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne brings "Expectations" to fans who know everything will go wrong. In "Ghost" the house seems empty with Elena and Clay gone but Daniel threatens his former pack mates. Three weeks and counting down to the nuptials, but the engaged couple feel as if they are going through "Wedding Bell Hell" with the slow countdown. In "The Case of El Chapacabra", Lucas and Paige investigate murder. These are terrific entries, but only fans of the Otherworld series will appreciate them as, like Ms. Armstrong has done on-line, they fill gaps in the series.

Rebirth - How Aaron became a vampire and met Cassandra.

Bewitched - This is the story of how Eve and Kristof met and fell in love. And also the specifics concerning why she left him. Fair warning--it's as lovely as it is heartbreaking.

Birthright - Logan POV. How he joined the Pack.

Beginnings - At close to 200 pages this is closer to a short story than a novella (not that I'm complaining). It's included in the Tales of the Otherworld collection, and it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

I'm talking OMGOMG!! amazing.

It's the story of how Clay and Elena met and fell in love right up to where it all went to hell (you can read about the hell part in Becoming). It's told, alternating, from both Clay and Elena's POV, so it finally answers the question, "What was his thinking?!" a million times over. Was it a crap thing to do? Yes. Do I love, love, L-O-V-E him anyway? YES.

Expectations - From Lucas's POV, about a run-in he had with Eve in an attempt to steal one of her grimoires.

Ghosts - Jeremy POV from right after he sent Elena and Clay to Toronto in Bitten.

Wedding Bell Hell - Countdown to Lucas and Paige's wedding. Meh.

The Case of El Chupacabra - Lucas and Paige short story with a tiny bit of Sean Nast tossed in. About an alleged vampire killing and how Lucas and Paige came into possession of their office space.
