I really enjoyed this book. It begins with the origin of Jeremy and then moves into Clayton's life, which has a lot of humor and family love. I had loved Jeremy and Clayton in Armstrong's other books, and this book brought even more depth to each of them. This book won't be leaving my library!

I had small doubts about this book before I read it. Luckily it turned out really well. It goes into detail about the birth of Jeremy the Alpha werewolf; the infection of Clayton; and their life together before the arrival of Elena.

Clayton's reactions and view of the world made me chuckle many times. I loved the surprise supernatural circumstances surrounding Jeremy's birth & would like to hear more about it in future books.

I LOVED THIS! That said, as the other reviewer mentioned, it ISN'T like her other books. Don't expect it to be. It doesn't 'sound' like she wrote it. But DO expect it to have her humor and style. But in that, I see her brilliance/talent as a writer.

For me, I felt like I was sitting down with Clay while he was looking at a photo album and reminiscing about his past. It is not a typical novel; it is glimpses of his life growing up, a collection of memories. It helps you understand why Clay is the way he is and why Jeremy is the way he is. In the beginning of the book, we learn about Jeremy (why he is so different from the other werewolves). At the end of the book, you also get to see what Jeremy is becoming, as he figures out his origins.

Don't expect this to be a typical 'Women of the Otherworld' novel. It isn't. She never said it would be. Don't expect romance or lots of description. Remember she was writing it as if she was a male.

Also, I truly wouldn't start her series here. Go back to the beginning of the series and work your way up.

I read it in one afternoon, b/c of my inability to put it down. Hope you enjoy it as much!

This was a very good book. The werewolf characters are probably the ones I feel most familiar with in Armstrong's Otherworld. The stories in this book told us a lot more about them, particularly Jeremy, though also Clay, Nick, and Jeremy's father, Malcom. The weakest story was probably the new one, the one that starts to hint at Jeremy's heritage but doesn't give us or the characters any real answers, just a starting place for further research. That being said, it wasn't a bad story at all. All but the new story are available on-line at Armstrong's website. But, I really like having it in book form, and I'm happy to support Armstrong and her chosen charity by purchasing the book.

I did not like this book as much as the her other books. I loved Kelley Armstrongs othewold series but this one to me is slow. I did not read it as fast as the others.

This book is a nice compilation of short stories written from the perspective of the men in her world. Honestly I read most of them a long time ago as free stories on her website and got the book mostly for the last (and brand new) story Kitsunegari. This is told from Jeremy's POV and he's having a rare weekend with Jaime. I don't want to give anything away so I'll just that I really love our werewolf pack and stories revolving around them never disappoint. The story of how Clay becomes a werewolf is also a favorite. I recommend this book to any Armstrong fan or someone looking to see if they'd like her work.
