Stalked was originally published in My Big Fat Supernatural honeymoon, which I refused to buy because I only wanted it for this story and it was £10 - no way. Luckily, I was able to read it when I visited a friend in Canada.
Elena and Clay are on their honeymoon when Clay notices a mutt is stalking them, stalking Elena. He confronts him and discovers his reputation is no longer what it used to be (he and Elena discuss this in a later book, I think it might be Hidden) and this mutt isn't scared off by the confrontation. Determined to keep the mutt a secret from Elena he tries to trap him, only to realise that Elena knew about him all along. So they team up and do what they do best ~ scare him off (with a little killing).
I do love Clay as a narrator, he always comes across as so stand offish in other books that it's great to read from his perspective every once in a while. This story brings Clay's worries as a father and husband to the front, his injured arm being his main worry but also the fact that his big scare tactic was almost 30 years ago and the newer generations don't believe thee story so they're just not as scared. As I said, I had already read this but since I didn't actually own the book I hadn't had a chance to re-read it.
Off-Duty Angel is the new short story prequel to 13, it has one of my favourite narrators ~ Eve. Eve is on her 6 month shore leave from angel duty and is bored since Kristoff is in court. So Kristoff brings her a case to help him with, getting info on a ghost. Eve stumbles upon a hidden dimension and finds some little demonic critters with a big secret ~ some lost text that contain spells.Read more ›
I think the cover best represents Stalked with the image of the wolf in the trees. Stalked is actually the first novella in this e-special. As a Kelley Armstrong fan I love anything at all with Clay and Elena in it. Even though I have read this novella before within My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon.
Both Clay and Elena are on top form having their honeymoon both desperate to keep the other happy and not admit to being bored in St Louis. Everything is getting very boring for them until a stray mutt starts literally sniffing around, challenging Clay? Sniffing round Elena? You need to read the novella to find out. I will say it is classic Clay & Elena and I doubt you will be disappointed!
The second novella in this e-special is Off-Duty Angel which feature Eve Levine and Kristoff Nast. Eve is bored as she is "Off-Duty" and Kristoff is hard at work at court. After trying to do a bargain with the fates doesn't work as she wishes Eve sets off trying to help Karl with a mystery involving his present case. Is Eve on the right case? Is it a set up? Or has Eve stumbled upon something bigger than she can Eve suspect? Again this one is totally Eve, in like a bull in a china shop wanting to sort everything and everybody out. I love the character of Eve too and feel she wasn't seen enough in the Women Of the Otherworld Series as much as I would have liked so this novella was a bonus for me.
This e-special also contains an exclusive early look at the first seven chapters of Thiteen, the Otherworld series finale, which I decided not to read as I am not up to that book yet in my Kelley Armstrong library of books so didn't want to spoil my future reading.
So did I enjoy the two novellas? YES! Would I read more? YES Would I recommend? I always do recommend Kelley Armstrong!
The first story, "Stalked", features Clay and Elena (everyone's favourite werewolves) on their honeymoon. What's really lovely is that it's narrated by Clay so we get a really nice look into his perspective and how he truly views Elena and their relationship. I particularly liked how Armstrong showed that even though Clay hates some of the things Elena wants to do, he does them anyway. A softer side to Clay after all! If you've read the other stories in the "Otherworld" collection then you'll be familiar with Clay and his ability to attract trouble wherever he goes. In this case, there's a pesky mutt following Elena and Clay wants to find out why WITHOUT letting on to Elena (he doesn't want to ruin their trip...aw!). Add to this a growing sense of boredom between the pair on their romantic getaway and you just know there's going to be fight...even if it is just to let off some steam!Read more ›
