"spellbinding, magical and delightful tale"
She is the only female werewolf in existence and she is
pregnant by her werewolf lover; something that has never
happened before. The men in Elena Michaels' pack are
smothering her in their need to keep her safe and
protected; she understands their motives, but could use
some action in her life. That occurs when half-demon
Xavier Reese asks her to steal the letter "From Hell"
supposedly written by jack the Ripper. In return Xavier
will tell her where a rogue werewolf is hiding.
The pack believes they can accomplish the theft with no
danger to Elena so they travel to sorcerer Patrick
Shanahan's Toronto home where the letter is located. They
pull off the caper without a hitch but disaster happens
when Elena's blood from an insect bite drips on the letter
opening a dimensional portal. Two zombies enter from the
other side bringing cholera to Toronto, contaminating the
water supply and spreading other diseases. The sorcerer
directs his zombies to kidnap Elena, who realizes she must
find the practitioner causing the havoc that threatens her
babies, pack and Toronto.
The Women of the Other World story that stared with BITTEN
and continued with STOLEN comes to a heartwarming
conclusion in BROKEN. Elena is very happy with Clay and
considers her pack as her family. Kelley Armstrong writes
a fanatic urban fantasy filled with romance and mystery
that will satiate fans of three genres. Nobody will guess
the identity of the villain though that person is in plain
sight for Monday morning quarterbacks. That is just part
of the charm of this spellbinding, magical and delightful
tale and miniseries.
