'Broken' is book six in the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong and proved to be another very satisfying installment. In this edition, the author brings back the protagonist introduced to her readers in her outstanding debut novel 'Bitten'.
Elena Michaels is the only known female werewolf and has finally settled into a satisfying domestic life with her lover/husband/mate Clayton Danvers and the Pack's alpha, Jeremy. Big changes are in store since Elena is pregnant and no one has a clue what sort of complications could ensue. To make matters worse, a conniving half-demon, Xavier Reese, is calling in a chit that Elena owes him by asking her to steal the Jack the Ripper 'From Hell' letter for him.
After successfully purloining the coveted document, Elena and the Pack inadvertently open a dimensional portal to Victorian England and let loose the supernatural nasties within. In their attempts to close the portal and rectify the chaos, Elena comes in contact with witches, a vampire, a necromancer, zombies, and sorcerers.
What makes the book so much fun is the obvious skill of the author in being able to tell her tale with such seemingly effortlessness. Readers will feel the need to keep reading until the problems and mysteries are resolved; and will be treated to a very satisfying conclusion.
All in all, another first-class installment in a high-quality series of books.
