And with it, so does Kelley Armstrong. This week has had several mentions of urban fantasy and today is no different. Kelley is no stranger to the darkest of the fantasy sub-genres, weaving multiple characters with dynamic personalities and awesome power.
Her main series, Otherworld, spans 13 books, numerous short stories, and is now completed.
Tales of the Otherworld is a short story collection set in Kelley’s most famous world. I think this is my lone ebook selection for Gifts For the Geek. But the paperback is out in fine bookstores too. Regardless which edition you purchase and/or gift, Tales of the Otherworld is a great introduction to Kelley’s work
Here is a bit more about Tales of the Otherworld:
New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong has bewitched audiences with her Otherworld series of supernatural thrillers. Now, in this new collection of shorter fiction, some of Armstrong’s most tantalizing lead characters appear alongside her unforgettable supporting players, who step out of the shadows and into the light.
Have you ever wondered how lone wolf Clayton Danvers finally got bitten by the last thing he ever expected: love? Or how the hot-blooded bad-girl witch Eve Levine managed to ensnare the cold, ruthless corporate sorcerer Kristof Nast in one of the Otherworld’s most unlikely pairings? Would you like to be a fly on the wall at the wedding of Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne as their eminently practical plans are upended by their well-meaning friends? Or tag along with Lucas and Paige as they investigate a gruesome crime that looks to be the work of a rogue vampire?
Now devotees of the Otherworld can share these special moments with some of their favorite characters—as well as discovering deeper insights into the lives of some of the lesser-known players. But even readers new to the
Otherworld universe will find much to love in these seven tales of friendship, adventure, and enduring romance. For when the superhuman men and women of the Otherworld set their minds to a task, they do so with fierce passion and an undivided sense of purpose that make them, in the end, very much human.
Any geek who loves Jim Butcher, Kim Harrison, Patricia Briggs, Stacia Kane, or early Laurell K. Hamilton will love Tales of the Otherworld. People who love the Twilight movies or True Blood will likely like this as well!
