Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong

Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong
2009, Spectra
Series: Women of the Otherworld

Synopsis: A curious child, Clayton didn’t resist the bite, he asked for it. But surviving alone is impossible, until Jeremy teaches human-wolf balance, gives him a home, and welcomes him to the Pack - hierarchical founding family where bloodlines are all, and members face deadly challenges. Clayton narrates 3 tales, "Infusion," "Savage," "Ascension", and Jeremy tells "Kitsunegari."

The Good: These are stories that any fan of the series needs to read. It gives all the background on Clay that you've always needed. Questions of why he is the way he is, how he came to be with Jeremy and how exactly things evolved with Elena are all answered in great detail. There is also a story on Jeremy's heritage, which explains why he is so different than past alphas.

The Bad: The title sort of gives the impression that the book would delve into the history and stories of a variety of men in this series, not just Clay and Jeremy. While it was an interesting look into the werewolves, I was very disappointed that there weren't stories about any of the other male characters.
