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.

I loved this collection of short stories. It doesn't feel like a mishmashed, haphazard collection, hastily thrown together... rather, all of the stories in `Tales' offer new perspectives and insights into characters and side-stories. It sheds new light on the `Otherworld' universe.

Fans of Kelley Armstrong will not be disappointed! (and the same goes for new readers).

I actually read this book a few years after I had read her first book, "Bitten". Bitten didn't hit it off for me for some reason, but after reading the backstory for Clay and Elena, I was hooked. I re-read Bitten and ended up falling in love with the world she created.

If you're looking for a good urban fantasy with a dash of romance, Kelley Armstrong is for you!

I would also highly suggest other authors if you like this book. Patricia Briggs is an all time favorite, but Ilona Andrews and Richelle Mead are also great choices.

Brilliant! I loved the Clay-Elena backstory. Their relationship is so fascinating and complex. I hadn't previously read much on the Cabals or Paige, so those stories were an interesting introduction to Kelley Armstrong's other characters.

Adored this book! This book was right up my alley as I love Kelley Armstrong, have really enjoyed all of her previous books, and am a big fan of short story collections. It's a win-win!

Several of my favorite characters make appearances, and it's nice to learn more of their history. Enjoyed all eight of the stories included (not sure why the blurb says there are seven), but my favorite two are Bewitched and Beginnings.

Bewitched gives us the story on how Eve Levine and Kristof Nast met and fell in love. It was nice to see a younger Eve who's not as confident and self-assured as we're used to, and the story gave a believable explanation for how these two total opposites came together.

Beginnings is similar to Bewitched in that we get the story of how two lovers met and fell in love, only this time it's Elena and Clay. I think that this is the longest story in the book, and it totally rocks! Elena and Clay are one of my favorite couples, and Kelley does a great job of walking us through their initial meeting and eventual courtship.

The book also includes stories featuring the vampires Aaron and Cassandra, werewolves Logan and Jeremy, Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne, and Savannah Levine Nast. Not a single boring story in the whole bunch
