As a half-demon master of the dark arts, Eve Levine isn’t what anyone would call angelic. That’s exactly why the Fates chose her for the job. She’s their secret weapon against the forces of evil. However after five years, Eve is tired of being the designated rebel of the angel corps, expected to break the rules, then penalized for it. When the leaderless...more

"Angelic" is like the Holy Grail for fans of Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. It was released in January of 2010 as a limited release novella. If you didn't order one of these in advance, you were out of luck. They were sold out before the release day. But now, it's available on ebook, so most of us are getting our first look at the story.

It focuses on Eve, the ghost/angel who narrated Haunted. She is just coming off of a six month stint on angel duty, and expected to spend the next 6 mont...more

I'm going to start by saying that I love Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. Love it. I have ridiculous amounts of love for it. I would shower it with rose petals if I could. And if it didn't make me sound like a creepy stalker. Having said that, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if you haven't read the WotO series and you decide to dive into this book anyway you're going to be wondering who all these wonderful characters are.

The book itself is a fun little ride with...more

This is a novella set in the Women of the Otherworld universe, starring Eve. Although my favorites are the wolves (especially Jeremy), I do like Eve, so I was glad to see she was the focus of this story. I think this is a great little stand-alone story, and though it's hard to tell exactly when it was intended to come, I'd guess sometime after Living with the Dead. This was a nice little look at Eve and her life after the events of Haunted with several other character cameos thrown in (although...more

I love Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld novels, but I’m not a huge fan of special limited edition novels or books. They are usually books that you pay a good deal of money for and can’t really carry around with you for fear of damaging the book.

Thankfully, I didn’t have that problem with Angelic by Kelley Armstrong. It’s short, just under one hundred pages, so it was an hours worth of glorious reading. I enjoyed it so much that I read it two times in a row.

In Angelic, Armstrong returns...more

This is an Eve Levine short story in Armstrong's Otherworld series. As with all of Ms. Armstrong's work, it is well-written, has great character development, excellent dialogue, is fast-paced, action-packed, and an all-around good read. Eve is about to take off for a well-deserved vacation with her afterlife significant other. She works as an angel for 6 months out of the year doing jobs for the Fates. The Fates call her back to work for "one more little job." Eve agrees, but secretly plots for...more

I listened to the audio of this novella today. It wasn't bad but it isn't something you have to read as part of the series. It's an Eve book set 5 years after Haunted. I would have rather had the book so I could look at the illustrations but I wasn't savvy enough to figure out this was a limited edition. I learned my lesson, I've pre-ordered the next one, Counterfeit Magic (a Paige book featuring Savannah) which Kelley has promised will be even better (and longer).

Eve isn't one of my favorites in this series, but after this little story she does come off better. In the past she has seemed very selfish and not really cared for anyone other than herself and her daughter. With her new job as an Angel for half of the year Eve pushes the boundaries to get her job done. Her bosses, the fates, seem to know this and seem to pander to that with the jobs they give her. Of course they don't want to acknowledge it so all things must be done while all involved ignore...more

Eve is easily my least favorite character in the WOTO, but I was pleasantly surprised.

My Thoughts...

I bought this months ago and sadly it's been sat on my shelf neglected until last night where I sucked it up in less than a hour before before bed. Now, I love Kelley Armstrong - I've said it so much that I probably border on the line of obsessed. But Kelley has a such a way of crafting absorbing characters and fantastic urban settings that it's enough to leave you hanging for more once you finish reading your first book.

Eve is one of my favourite of Armstrong's characters. She and...more

I am a huge Kelley Armstrong fan. And a huge fan of the Women of the Otherworld series (it is probably my favorite adult series).

I was never able to get a copy of Angelic (it is a limited edition novella). So after getting a kindle last week this was one of my first purchases.

I enjoy Eve, so I was definitely looking forward to another of her adventures.

I enjoyed getting to see some of the other Otherworld characters. Although I wish we could have gotten to see more of them in the story (I do und...more

Book Review: 1 Treasure Box

Eve Levine is an angel, who needs a vacation, but the Fates are determined to keep her at work. After Eve died several years ago, she became a celestial bounty hunter. She is effective at her job because she is part demon and with her partner is a ghost.

Kelley Armstrong has written numerous contemporary novels, 11 books in the Women of the Underworld series, plus several other books, series, anthologies and novellas, including Darkest Powers & Darkness Rising and N...more

Eve is my favorite Otherworld narrator and any story with her is guaranteed to be fun. This story was no exception.

Eve is fed up with her position as part-time angel. Sure, the job has its perks: she's got unlimited access to almost all realms, she can speak any language fluently and then there is that cool sword too.
But Eve has her own way of doing a job and that usually entails breaking - or at least bending - the rules. Which leads to the Fates being perpetually pissed off with her. Which m...more

While Armstrong is an excellent writer, I just have to wonder what kind of situation she experienced during this short story. It felt very melancholic. Though there were the parts with the Fates that were, oh I don't know, intriguing, funny, and disturbing. All at the same time. Eve's stories, and appearances in other books have never really been my favorites. Though she seems like a very fleshed out character there seems to be that one little spark missing, and I can't exactly figure out what i...more

ANGELIC (Otherworld Series Novella) by Kelley Armstrong

ANGELIC by Kelley Armstrong is a novella focusing on Eve Levine, the ½ demon ½ witch daughter of Lord Demon Baal, mother of Savannah and lover to Cabal heir Kristof Nash-only she is a part time ghost and part time Angel. Working for the Fates 6 months of the year, Eve’s latest assignment will have her discover that the latest djinn uprising is well organized and powered by an angelic force once thought to be a friend. The djinn Dantalian wan...more

Eve is a part time angel. She’s just finished her six-month stint as a celestial being, and is looking forward to spending the rest of the year with her boyfriend, Kris. Unfortunately, the fates have other plans for her, and are sending her on one last job. Eve is furious, ready to quit her position, or get herself fired. But when her last minute job turns out to be more complicated than expected, Eve has much bigger things to worry about than her employment.

Angelic is a short novella that takes...more

Eve Levine, den “Women of the Otherworld” Lesern aus “Haunted / Nacht der Geister” bekannt, hat eigentlich schon seit einer Woche Urlaub. Bevor sie sich jedoch auf den Weg in die Karibik machen kann, bekommt sie einen neuen Job zugeteilt. Djinne halten sich nicht mehr an ihre Verträge und foltern die Personen, die sie heraufbeschworen haben. Eve soll den Dämon aufspüren, der dies veranlasst hat und trifft dabei auf einen alten Bekannten.

Angelic is a novella set in the Women of the Otherworld universe and occurs somewhere between Living with the Dead and Frostbitten. Whilst you can read the main novels without the shorter works, I don't think these novellas work by themselves and will contain spoilers for the series. Originally, it was only available as a limited edition hardback through Subterranean, but has more recently been released as an ebook for those that missed out. I'm still a little sad that this is the only book miss...more

Angelic is a short story narrated by the Angel Eve set in Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series.

It is a very short story. The whole thing is maybe 100 or so pages long, and in quite big font. It expands on Eve's role as the designated "bad" Angel and her frustrations with the expectations everyone has of her. It's a nice adjunct to the series, popping in to see how the ghost world is getting on, but it's certainly not essential to the growing Otherworld background. And it is very, very, short.
Sarah
I got the chance to read this book when it was sent on a UK tour by Kelley Armstrong as I was one of many, many fans who didn't pre-order the story when it was originally released. Since I signed up to for the tour last year the story has now been released as an audio book (which I purchased several months ago) and is now available as an ebook.

I have to confess that I'm not at all up to date with the Women of the Otherworld series, in fact I've still only read the first 2 books which is somethin...more

I think I see why Kindle is so popular.

This is a good novella if you have read the other books of Women of the Otherworld, in particular the novels concerning the witches. If you haven't, this isn't the best introduction to the series, knowledge of back story is needed here.

I enjoyed this story because I like Eve, Jamie, and Jermany. Eve, in her angelic P.I. guise is tasked with dealing a djinn (demon) problem. While not as good as some of Armstrong's work, the story is pleasing and well worth t...more
Debra
God do I love Eve Levine. She is my Favorite character of ALL time. I could read stories about her over and over again. Kelley Armstrong weaves an almost intoxocating world of hidden magic. Once you start reading the otherworld seris, you are stuck in for the long haul. But that's ok because each book is so very good in and of itself. Case in point, Angelic. This is just a small novel (basicly a short story), but is great. It is fun and funny with a great plot drive and the awesome Eve and Krist...more
Rebecca
Angelic is a companion novella in the Otherworld series, so it’s really short and quite a fast read. I read it, and I’ve never read any of the other books in the series so I don’t think you have to, to fully understand what was going on in the book.
I enjoyed it, I thought it was something different and it had really interesting characters. So, if you love fantasy with angel/demon type characters then you might enjoy Angelic.
I think that Angelic is a good book to read if you’re looking at startin...more

It was one of those days when you have to leave for your commute in 10 minutes and you are completely out of audiobooks. I searched my library's site for an available ipod compatible audiobook to download and it was between this and Amerigo: The Man Who Gave His Name to America or some book on reading financial spreadsheets. I'm sure the spreadsheets book would have been more educational, but it sounded like an odd use of audio-book commute time. Needless to say, my expectations were low.

Very quick, only @ 1 1/2 hrs on audio. I like this series alot. This is a quick little novella with Eve and Kristof's characters. I listened to this one out of order, I am up to book 12, but it really didn't seem to matter. I don't see this as a stand alone, since there is not much info given to fill in the blanks. There is enough to recap, if you've been reading the series . If you haven't you may be uninterested in this book, but maybe not totally lost. I didn't like Eve at the beginning, and...more

Very Eve and very good. It was nice to see her again. :)

The illustrations were a nice addition, but I read the book on my Kindle.. not as special then. ;)

She's been working for the Fates for .. 5 years or something like that and they are constantly screwing her. Using her 'bad' reputation. They let her break minor rules and act as if they wouldn't see it, because they actually approve. However when faced with her actions they still 'punish' her or at least give her lectures about power and angel...more

Angelic is set five years after Haunted. Eve Levine is tired of her job and is thinking about getting herself fired while handling the newest job the fates have set forth for her.

A quick read, but I've always thought Eve was an interesting character and it was nice to read a little more about her. There was a little interaction with Christophe, Jeremy & Jaime as well.

I look forward to checking out Counterfeit Magic, Paige's Novella coming out later this year.

It was fun to read. Eve is one of my favorite characters, possibly my favorite of the series. I appreciate the shades of gray that she and Kristof Nast bring in. The humor is strong in this installment. I particularly enjoyed the conversation in which Kristof explained his role of the hero's girlfriend.

This story is also meant to be important to Eve's character development, in which she really accepts her role as an angel, despite the way she is frequently jerked around by the Fates.

It would've...more

In Angelic, Eve has one last job to do before she can take time off from her job as an ascended angel, someone who does jobs for the Fates (such as tracking down demons). However, she hates how she's being treated and is determined to get herself fired. In trying to do that, however, she uncovers a plot that she becomes determined to stop.

I wasn't very impressed by this book. As much as I have loved Kelley Armstrong's work in the past, I did not feel this was one of her strongest. There were g...more

Awesome for a light read! I'm in love with this series and enjoy all these short stories! Eve comes in a close second to Clayton as my favorite character, I love all the back round Armstrong gives with all of these! I hope she never stops writing them!

Kelley Armstrong 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 a...more
