Publisher's Summary

First we were mesmerized by the Women of the Otherworld. Now it's time to learn all about the men who love those supernatural women!

As a curious six-year-old, Clayton didn't resist the bite - he asked for it. But surviving as a lone child-werewolf was more than he could manage - until Jeremy came along, taught him how to straddle the human-werewolf worlds...and introduced him to the Pack. So begins this tantalizing volume featuring three of the most intriguing members of the American Pack - a hierarchical founding family where bloodlines mean everything and each day presents a new, thrilling, and often deadly challenge.

For as Clayton grows from a wild child to a clever teen who tests his mentor at every turn, he must learn not only to control his animal instincts but to navigate Pack politics - including showing his brutal arch nemesis who the real Alpha is.

Wolfboy Wild Child meets Civilization

What did you love best about Men of the Otherworld?

I loved the back story of Clay's Life and of Jeremy's powers.

What did you like best about this story?

This was an entertaining backstory, I wish I'd had it first, to understand the characters of Jeremy and Clay a little better and the pack dynamic described.

Which character – as performed by Charles Leggett – was your favorite?

I loved this book. It kept my attention throughout the story and I didn't want to stop listening for a minute til the end of teh book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The only fault I had to the author's perfoormance was the lack of the southern drawl for Clay. The voice inflection used for Clay was irritating, almost whiny pitched. Not the southern drawl expected.

Any additional comments?

I loved the material, love the author, greatly enjoyed the book. I can see Clay growing and becoming protector of the pack.

LOVED IT

Kelley is an awesome author! The characters are very realistic. The adventures are believable. And Charles Legget certainly knows how to read, and work his voice.

Domestication of Wolves to Men

Courtesy of Lost Art Audiobook Review

This audiobook is read by Charles Leggett. I haven’t listened to his narration before, but he’s very competent with the voices, which are almost exclusively male in this collection. His Cajun accent seems alright, but I’m not very familiar with the way it’s supposed to sound. His general reading is sincere and believable. My only criticism is that I had a hard time between the external and internal dialogue from Clayton’s point of view. For example, when Jeremy takes Clayton to the airport, Clayton recognizes a plane, but I did not realize he said it out loud until Jeremy responded. Kind of makes you wonder how much of the internal dialogue was really internal.

There are three parts to this collection. The first starts with a third-person narration of how Malcolm met Jeremy’s mother, which is a rather brutal story but interesting. The best part of the collection was definitely the second – Clayton’s story told from his point of view. As hard it as it is to empathize with Malcolm is how smooth it is to slip into Clayton’s story. The third part is Jeremy’s discovery of his mother’s people. Even though the cover of the collection hints at sex, and man-on-man at that, this is actually the only section that has it, and really only hints at it between Jeremy and Jaime, which is nice, but not quiet as explosive as Clayton and Elena’s relationship in the series. This is actually the part I missed most about the collection – not the sex, but the relationship between Clayton and Elena from Clayton’s perspective. If you’re familiar with the series, Clayton turned Elena basically against her will. The more we know of Clayton throughout the series, including in this collection, the less that particular moment makes sense. I was hoping to get that moment from Clayton’s perspective, but that’s not in the story.

Loved this - read it AFTER Bitten!

Great to hear about Clayton and Jeremy's relationship before Bitten. Loved having the history of the pack! Hope there is another one ASAP!

fun read

I put off purchasing this book until it was on sale bc i thought it would be a boring read. I was sooo wrong! Not only is it a great story, light and entertaining but it was laugh out loud funny! (in parts).
I have read all but the most recent books by K Armstong and this is by far one of the best.

Fantastic!

I loved it! It was nice to hear Clay and Jeremy's story. This is definitely worth a credit if you like the Otherworld series. The narrator was awesome!

Read this before Bitten

Well, now I'm hooked. This book is good (if you like the genre) and gives a wonderful background to the first book, Bitten, that Kelley Armstrong wrote in the Otherworld series. You could actually start the series with this one.

Big waste of my time

This just didn't make any sense at all to me - it
appeared to be more than one story line...I couldn't follow it. All I can say is that is was
about werewolves. A big waste of my time and more to the point, a BIG waste of my money.
