Review: Otherworld Chills by Kelley Armstrong

Otherworld Chills by Kelley Armstrong
Otherworld Stories Collection

Embrace the obscure. In the final installment of the Otherworld anthology series, New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong once again opens the gates to the Otherworld. This collection of rare and never-before-published novellas and short stories brings the clever wit, dark twists, and intense suspense Otherworld readers have come to expect. Favorite characters return, secrets are revealed, and several important storylines reach their conclusions.

While almost all of these stories had been published previously, I've only read a few of them. So this was largely an enjoyable fresh read for me.

Brazen - I love Nick Sorrentino, so this one was a super fun read. Nick really steps up in this one, and throws off a lot of his playboy, boy toy exterior ways. I really enjoyed seeing the start of his relationship with Vanessa as well. Now to have a full length novel with the two of them... Well that would be perfect.

Chaotic - I'd read this one before, but it was just as fun the second time around. Seeing Karl and Hope meet and all the hijinx involved was a ton of fun.

Amityville Horrible - I have to admit this one wasn't quite as enjoyable as the rest. I felt a good bit of deja-vu while reading it despite never having actually read it. It just didn't bring anything fresh to Jeremy and Jaime's relationship or story in my opinion.

Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word - This one was super quick and just mediocre for me. Cassandra never was my favorite character, so it's not surprising it wasn't my favorite of the bunch.

Off-duty Angel - This was another I read, but Eve and Kristoff are another of my favorites, so I really enjoyed their adventure.

The Puppy Plan - I loved, loved, loved this one. In fact, Logan now has officially moved to my top favorite character of the entire series. There's just something so incredible about this little guy and I hope we get more stories from him (and Kate, Clay, & Elena) just so we can see the fine man he'll grow into.

Baby Boom - This one was the only newly written story of the bunch and it was a game changer. It's funny to think of something changing the game well after a series has ended, but this one sure did. Well worth the read to see the Cabel brew-ha-ha crazy.
