I have a dirty little secret.
I've never read past the 1st book in the Women of the Otherworld series.
I know! I know! How is this even possible?
I don't know. I liked Clay and Elena's story in Bitten, but I never went back for more.
Anyway, I thought this anthology might whet my appetite. Maybe get me off my duff, and excited to read the rest of these wildly popular books?
Amazing plan, Anne!
*pats self on back*
So, did it work? Am I currently reading this series?
Well, nooooo.
But I will!

In the WOMEN OF THE OTHERWORLD universe, mothers (witches are the exception) don’t play a large role in their children’s lives once their abilities start developing because in most cases they are human, and as a result can’t be let in on the secret. Robert Vasic has been a part of Adam’s world since he was eight years old, but this short shed some light on his mom who was no pushover. When confronted with a possible pyromaniac kid, instead of

3.5 ☆

Otherworld Nights is anthology #3 which offers eight short stories with a variety of characters from Armstrong's Otherworld series. I initially picked up this anthology for Elena and Clayton but I finished the entire anthology. Surprisingly, the biggest emotional highs (and lows) came from the stories with the other characters. Yes, there are minor spoilers if you haven't read up through Thirteen, but they weren't sufficient to prevent me from enjoying this collection.

"Demonology" - Adam V

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. As someone who has only read a handful of the books that these characters are based on, I can say that this can definitely be read as a standalone if you have not read any other works by this author. Of course you will get more out of this collection if you have read the Women of the Otherworld series, but it is definitely not a prerequisite.

My favourite stories have to be the Clay and Elena ones, I felt that the author was the most connected/in

Demonology - 3.5 stars

If you've ever thought it odd that Adam's mother was seduced by a Lord Demon and then went on to marry a half demon . . . this is the story of how, while searching for help for her son (who liked to set things on fire), she met Robert Vasic.

Stalked - 3.5 stars

Elena and Clay story about a run-in with mutts on their honeymoon. Short, but very sweet, and gives us even more evidence that these two are perfect for each other.

I just love the Otherworld Universe that Kelley Armstrong has woven. I love that there is always a new story to read or an old one to revisit. Otherworld Nights is her third compilation of novellas/short stories about various characters around the series. To my surprise I actually had never read the majority of the ones included in this book. It's always great to learn more about the twins and I would have liked to have had more time with Adam's mother. 5 Stars. ...more
3.5 stars - Spoilers

Loved some of the stories, wasn't a fan of others. I didn't realise I'd already read most of them though which was disappointing, would have liked a few more newer stories.

-STALKED. This was pretty entertaining even though I'd already read it before. It was cute how Clay was desperately trying to get rid of Elena's werewolf stalker without her knowing just so she could have a perfect honeymoon. Clay and Elena were kind of daft though with both of them thinking the other hadn'
Anyone who regularly reads my blog is probably aware of my undying love for Kelley Armstrong, and it all began with her Women of the Otherworld series, so imagine my happiness at learning that Armstrong was writing another collection of Otherworld stories. Yay! So bear in mind that I love Armstrong, love the Otherworld universe, and I’m a big fan of short fiction, because I thought this was one of the better anthologies I’ve read in the last few years.

A satisfying collection of shorts and novellas for those of us who miss The Women Of The Otherworld series, and its characters.

I really have a problem with the short stories I like... I always find them too short!
This one is about Talia and her son Adam. In this novel, Adam is eight years old, and his powers are just starting to arise. Of course neither him or his mother know about

📚 Hello Book Friends! I just finished OTHERWORLD NIGHTS by Kelley Armstrong. This is the third book in the Otherworld Stories Series. I love these Otherworld novellas and how they allow me to enjoy my favourite characters once more. In this one, I particularly enjoyed Elena and Clay’s Christmas holiday with the twins. It was nice to know how they finally revealed their secret to their children. If you like supernatural novels, this is a fantastic one. I recommend you read the WOMEN OF THE OTHERW

Thanks to Netgalley and Penguin Group Plume for giving me this book to review.

Talia’s son Adam has always had a fascination with fire, and after his hands have started to heat up when he gets upset, she feels that she needs to know what is happening to him. She makes an appointment with Professor Vasic as the last place she can turn to in order to get answers, but will he be able to tell her what is happening with Adam?

It was so nice to re-read these stories. I've missed them since they were taken down from Kelley's site. Well, not all were the site but several were. There was one story I hadn't read yet and there were two I'd read only once and of course, there was one new story. I liked them all.

While some focused on main characters others focused on secondary characters and that was a joy for me as they happened to be characters I like. The nice thing about short stories is that authors can shine a light on

The Review:

During a museum gala opening in her honor, a woman with demonic heritage has to deal with an annoying imp on the loose. Can she figure out how to re-prison him before he insists on doing her honor with human sacrifices? Light and humorous piece; quite fun.

Merged review:

Fratboy and sorority-girl type werewolves engage in Pack politics, and generally act like douchebags (even the 'good guy'). Pretty much everyone in this story deserved to die miserably - except the ones who did.

Fans of the Otherworld Series will appreciate and enjoy this collection. For those who don't enjoy searching through anthologies to find an author's work, Ms. Armstrong makes it easy with three collections. In this collection, there are eight short stories featuring the different characters in the Otherworld. For those who have never read this series, this is a great place to start.

In Demonology, Ms. Armstrong teases a reader with an ending unfinished. It kicks off with Adam's mother trying to f

Otherworld Nights is a collection of short stories from Kelley Armstong’s Otherwold series. I’m a huge fan of this series anyway so there was no doubt I would love this book. It was great to be back with the characters from the series again, they feel like old friends and I have missed the series since it ended. I had read all but two of these stories as freebies on the authors website over the years and appreciated them the second

OTHERWORLD NIGHTS was a nice compilation of short stories of Women of the Otherworld, that were featured in various anthologies over the years with a new Savannah story at the end.

All of these characters feel so real to me and I loved seeing them again. Since the stories are set at different times chronologically th

Demonology – We get to learn a little more of Adam and how he came to be. I love that his momma was so protective of him. She wouldn’t be suede to not know what was going on no matter the risk.

Twilight – This was interesting Cass “forgets” to do her yearly kill, and then is late and has a hard time drinking. Wonder what that means she would revert to human? Interesting. Loved that Aaron was by her side.

Stalked – It was a nice story of love and duty because even though they may be on vacation/h

I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

I am always ecstatic to return to Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series! I can never get tired of it! Otherworld Nights combines a handful of Kelley's short stories and novellas for some of our beloved characters! I admit, I haven't read all of these prior to this book--really just two, numbers 4 and 7 on this list above--and having them in this nifty an

One of the long going series I’ve always been a fan of was the Otherworld Series by Kelley Armstrong and was pretty sad when the series seemed to come to a close and not just in the same way I am when any series I like ends – because I felt there was a lot of stories left in this world and a lot of characters I’d like to see develop more – so this anthology of short stories seemed to be ideal

If you love the wolves, you are going to love this anthology! There are four excellent wolfie adventures to enjoy here-Clay and Elena's honeymoon spoiled by a mutt, Reese is on the run from the Australian Pack, A christmas Pack break is interrupted by a child killer, and Elena goes to Russia to form an alliance as the new Pack Leader. PLUS we get stories about Adam, Cassandra, Hope and Cabals behaving badly...what more could you possibly want?!!!

Otherworld Nights is a compilation of several different stories that Kelley Armstrong has written set in her Women of the Otherworld universe. Some of these stories have been previously published in other anthologies, but there is one new short and a new novella.

This is the first of three anthologies of rare and never-before published short stories and novellas. The focus of this anthology is love. The stories included are "Demonology," "Twilight," "Stalked," "Chivalrous," "Lucifer's Daughter," "Hidden," "From Russia, with Love," and "Vanishing Act."

All of the stories were entertaining. I liked learning about Reese's background in "Chivalrous" which was a story that I had never read before. Nor had I read "Twilight" which was a Cassandra story. Being a

This was a fun book. If you like Kelley Armstrong's books involving Clay and Elena, Paige, etc. I can't imagine you wouldn't like this book. More insight into these characters lives, another peek. Interesting stories, additional background. And if you're into the characters because of the other books, you'll probably want to add this book to your collection. ...more

This is an anthology of stories set in the world of the Women Of The Otherworld. Let me say first that I have not read any of the novels in this series, despite the fact that a good friend of mine is always singing their praise (or the fact that I'm interested in watching the Bitten show that is based off them). Now, I want to read them even more, especially the one about Hope. These short stories are intriguing and intense, even if

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
