Review: Forsaken by Kelley Armstrong

Forsaken by Kelley Armstrong
Otherworld Stories #13.3

Being Alpha of the North American Pack is like being a small-town sheriff — nobody wants the job, but someone’s gotta do it.

For the most part, Elena Michaels likes it just fine, even if it means dealing with arrogant misogynists in the werewolf world who are convinced that a woman isn’t up to the job.

That she could handle. What she never expected was a deadly threat to her eight-year-old twins. That her little girl could go missing in the night.

The enemy thought he was dealing with a hysterical mother.

Mother, yes. Hysterical, no.

Elena was Alpha for a reason. And nothing would stop her from getting her child back.

I absolutely love getting my hands on a Clay and Elena book. Their stories are like coming home, and FORSAKEN was no exception. These novellas have been a truly great addition to the series allowing it to grow past the ending back in Thirteen. This time around shows Elena dealing with the repercussions of taking over as Alpha in a misogynistic werewolf world. It's made her and her family a target, but her enemies quickly learn that it's the females you need to watch out for when their family is threatened. Suffice it to say Elena sees the trap and machinations well in advance and proves the "boys" need taught a lesson. I really enjoyed seeing her kicking butt and taking names.

Simply an enjoyable and full read despite being a novella. My only complaint would have to be the open ended nature of the ending. Granted that probably means more novellas to come, but it just caught me off guard as I had thought these stories to be bonus ones rather than a continuing storyline, but it appears I was wrong. So I'll be looking to see where that twist of an ending leads next.
