Three years after being named Alpha of the North American pack, Elena Michaels is in London battling for respect from the British pack. When it becomes apparent she won't get it, she heads home, expecting a much-needed rest on her family vacation, only to discover a battle brewing of a very different kind.
One of her eight-year-old twins has disappeared, and all evidence points to Malcolm Danvers. It seems as if the psychotic former Pack member they've been tracking for the past year has brought the fight to them, setting the bait he knows Elena can't afford to ignore.
Number one New York Times-bestselling author Kelley Armstrong returns to her much-loved Otherworld with this powerful novella detailing the latest trials and travails of a fan-favorite character, a working mother who happens to lead the werewolves of North America.

If it wasn't for the narrator I would have loved this more. I always appreciate how Armstrong describes the internal turmoil of dealing with high stress life and death situations. She slows the action down so you can understand characters motivations and calculations. A parents anxiety about losing a child provides great tension and you can see how her thinking and actions are impacted. Not enough interplay with other characters and the humor and banter missing. Elena is clever and quick typically so I missed her sarcasm. Te narrator didn't get the voices right. Adam sounded like he was on valium and clay's IQ sounded lower than his shoe size. I love clay so this disturbed me!
I've listened to hundreds of audio books, this is the first that sounds so terrible and tinny. sounds as if it was recorded in a cheap recording system.
Love the Otherworld series, and this was a nice addition. However, the sound quality was simply awful. It was as if the entire book was recorded through a tin can and a string. Thankfully it was a short book. If I didn't enjoy the series so much, I don't think I would have continued listening. It was that off-putting.
Patch of Genius
Storyline was good. I love the werewolf pack in the Otherworld series. But that narrator?! I had the book on 2x speed so I would get through her voice faster. And for some reason she repeated sentences. Just horrible.
Probably not - recording quality was bad but narration was odd to me, too.
No - preferred reading to listening....
Why did narrator sound like she was in a tin can? I preferred to read than listen and I have had few books where that has been the case! I listen to a LOT of books!
