"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.

When half-demon Xavier calls in the favour Elena owes him, it seems easy enough, steal Jack the Ripper's 'From Hell' letter away from a Toronto collector who had himself stolen it from the Ripper evidence boxes. But nothing in the supernatural world is ever as simple as it seems. Elena accidentally triggers a spell placed on the letter, and opens a dimensional portal into Victorian London, releasing zombies, disease, and maybe a notorious serial killer himself.
