Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong

Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong
2010, Bantam
Series:Women of the Otherworld (short stories)

Synopsis: 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? Would you like to be a fly on the wall at the wedding of Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne as their eminently practical plans are upended by their well-meaning friends? Or tag along with Lucas and Paige as they investigate a gruesome crime that looks to be the work of a rogue vampire?

The Good: This book is an absolute must read for fans of the series. We finally get to see exactly how Clay and Elena got together, which was never fully looked into during the series but was a huge motivation for all of their relationship woes. We also get to see how Eve and Kristof got mixed up together when they were such a unlikely pair. And how Eve became the "bad" witch she was when she died. These are things fans are dying to know and they are, in fact, every bit worth the wait.

The Bad: The short story format was jumpy. I would have much rather this been a prequel/origions story type novel.
