Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered how lone wolf Clayton Danvers finally got bitten by the last thing he ever expected: love? Or how the hot-blooded bad-girl witch Eve Levine managed to ensnare the cold, ruthless corporate sorcerer Kristof Nast in one of the Otherworld’s most unlikely pairings? Now, Otherworld readers can share these moments with some of their favorite characters—as well as catching welcome glimpses into the minds of some of the lesser-known players.

This Anthology contains "Birthright", "Beginnings", "Ghosts", "Expectations", "Wedding Bell Hell", "The Case of El Chupacabra" and a new story narrated by Eve.

Keep chilled: listen to more titles in the Otherworld series.

A must for a fan

I have read most of the stories included in this anthology on the author's website, when it was posted there for free. It was nice to read them again and enjoy the background prospective of the characters in her books.

Stories:
Rebirth (How Aaron became a vampire)= interesting
Bewitched (How Eve and Kristof Nast met and became involved)=was really touching
Birthright (How Logan came to Stonehaven)=nice back story
Beginnings (How Elena became werewolf)
=for a fan this story is a must! gives good back ground to Elena and how Clay thinks
Expectations (A short story of Lucas)= nice!
Ghosts (A self reflection by Jeremy during Bitten)= kind of sad but makes you love Jeremy even more
Wedding Bell Hell (Paige&Lucas's wedding)=funny and insightful
The Case of El Chupacabra (Paige&Lucas's investigation)=interesting and gives background to how P&L got their office.


I especially loved reading Paige's wedding and laughed out loud at some parts. Now that I don't hate Eve after reading about her, it was nice to know how she met Savannah's dad.

I don't know if the first time reader will enjoy this book as much. Since the stories here were written for fans so that they can enjoy the added depth to the characters of her otherworld stories. For the fans of the series this book is a must for new comers. I recommend they read the main stories first. For the fans, I would strongly recommend this book!

You'll love it if you love the Otherworld

Rebirth (35.7 Minutes) - Read by Erik - Aaron POV on how he was turned into a vampire. We met Aaron at the end of Stolen. Bewitched (1.8 Hours) - Read by Mia - Eve's POV short on how she met Christoph and how she ends up pregnant with Savanah. I'm not a huge Eve fan so not sure I've listened to this yet. I need to give this a shot and then listen. Birthright (27.1 Minutes) - Read by Erik - Logan's POV - This is a short on how Logan first meets Clay and Jeremy and finds out he is a werewolf. Beginnings (5.1 Hours) - Read by Mia for Elena POV and Erik for Clay's POV - I love going back and listening to this short - one of my favorites for falling asleep to. This tells the story of how Clay and Elena meet, get together, and Elena gets bitten. To me, this short alone was worth getting the audiobook! It's also nice getting more of Logan and seeing how close he and Elena get. This story is told from alternating Clay / Elena POVs. Expectations - (27.4 minutes) - Lucas centric short with him tracking down a grimoire. Ghosts - (17.5 minutes) Wedding Bell Blues - (39 minutes) - Page & Lucas wedding. Case of El Chupacabra - (4.2 Hours)

Loved it!

I can't believe I put off buying this book.It was well worth the credit. I wasn't crazy about the male narrator but I loved the book anyway. I love Kelly Armstrong and all of her books that I have read so far. This whole series great.

Explained a lot

It was good to understand the background of some characters & understand how Elaina & Clay fell in love. The Mia Barron did a great job & was easy to listen to.

Necessary read

Parts of this novel definitely add to the breath of the series . Parts make you wonder if the author has lost her way. Being a great admirer of Kelly Armstrong, I know this must of been written as an explanation to fill-in for sudden deviations in plot of other novels.
This is the second time I've listen to this and the third time I have read that novel, what really takes away from the plot is periods of really bad characterizations of the protagonists by the reader. Elena has a voice of a small child that is often so grading as to be difficult to listen to. No where do you hear hidden that sultry sexuality that lives within her or that budding warrior.The head of the Cortez cabal sounds like bad Bela Lagosi from 1930 vampire movies. Despite that, being an ardent reader of the series I think it's worthwhile getting through the novel despite the serious performance flaws.

I LAUGHED IN PARTS.

I WISH IT HAD BEEN MORE OF A COMPLETE STORY RATHER THAN JUST RELATED BITS.
