Men of the Otherworld

Title: Men of the Otherworld (Otherworld stories I)
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Edition: eBook

New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong has captivated readers with her spellbinding Women of the Otherworld series. Now, for the first time, in this collection of four tales she gives center stage to the men who love these sexy, supernatural women—the men who live on the other side of humanity…the wild side.

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 and taught him how to straddle the human-werewolf worlds, gave him a home…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 beloved mentor at every turn, he must learn not only to control his animal instincts but to navigate Pack politics—including showing his brutal archnemesis, Malcolm, who the real Alpha is....

From the nature of fear, weakness, and courage, to the triumph of belonging and the complications of love and loyalty, these mesmerizing tales reveal the trials of a werewolf coming-of-age, and lay bare the hearts and minds of the men strong enough for the women of the Otherworld—and adept enough to take on two worlds.

My Thoughts:
Men of the Otherworld is a collection of stories of the men from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherwold series. This book basically focuses on Clay, from a lone child werewolf to a teen. This story also focuses on the issues Jeremy had to deal with and Malcolm, Jeremy's father, who wants to take over the pack.

I'm going to start off saying that I love Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series and Clay and Elena's books are by far my fave! This book was amazing. I loved Clay as a child. He acted just as I imagined he would, wild and ruggish and smart and loyal. The issues he faced with the children of the other members of the pack and what he faced with Malcolm, he handles himself so well and this books just keeps you wanting to know more and more. Definitely a page turner.

Malcolm. I do not like Malcolm one little bit! He's conniving, evil, and just plain mean! But his character fits the part so well. Even though he is all those things, he is what kept the story full of action. And the issues he has with Jeremy is just jealousy. That's why he got what was coming to him. Which leads me to the next topic, Jeremy.

I love Jeremy also. He so intelligent, and level headed. I don't know how he had the patience to deal with Malcolm. The way he cared for Clay, so touching. And I also loved the side story with Jeremy and his lady at the end! Great touch to this book.

The others characters I like in this book are Nick and Antonio. They bring the comedy, especially Antonio. Off subject but another point, the action. This book was full of action, crazy adventure after crazy adventure. And betrayal after betrayal!

Overall, book was amazing! I really enjoyed this book with the men from the Women of the Otherworld series. If you have read the Women of the Otherworld series, I highly suggest you read this book!
