‘Women of the Otherworld’ series Book #6Mass Market Paperback: 480 pages Publisher: Spectra (April 25, 2006) Language: English ISBN-10: 0553588184 ISBN-13: 978-0553588187

In this thrilling new novel from the author of Industrial Magic, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on twenty-first-century—and become his next target.

Ever since she discovered she’s pregnant, Elena Michaels has been on edge. After all, she’s never heard of another living female werewolf, let alone one who’s given birth. But thankfully, her expertise is needed to retrieve a stolen letter allegedly written by Jack the Ripper. As a distraction, the job seems simple enough—only the letter contains a portal to Victorian London’s underworld, which Elena inadvertently triggers—unleashing a vicious killer and a pair of zombie thugs.

Now Elena must find a way to seal the portal before the unwelcome visitors get what they’re looking for—which, for some unknown reason, is Elena.

Review: I love this series!

This isn’t the first novel where Elena is the main character, and I love how Armstrong puts you inside her head. Elena is a strong woman/werewolf with a head on her shoulders and guts to do what needs to be done. In this novel, not only does she have ‘bad guys’ to worry about, but she’s pregnant as well, and that has her worried with nightmares to match. You feel what Elena feels right down to your core and you root for her constantly.

Clay is his usual self, completely devoted to Elena, and still has his own worries and insecurities.

The plot is excellent, lots of action to keep you on your toes. Not as many love scenes, but there’s a reason for that. Won’t say what it is, don’t want to spoil it for a potential reader. A plot twist that I really hadn’t figured out until it was almost too late, and I love when an author does that to me, LOL! I think the ending is absolutely perfect – I couldn’t ask for better. These novels are different than the usual vampire/werewolf/sorcerer/witch/demon novels I’ve read and not only do I give it a huge two-thumbs-up, but a definite recommendation!

  1. I didn’t know you had a book blog, too! 🙂 DichotomousNature is my general blog, but I have a book blog at MyWorldInBooks.wordpress.com, if you’re interested.

  2. I only started it in December, but yep – I got one too, LOL! With Crystal’s help, and her birthday present, I managed to improve it quite a bit. I plan on creating a website, but I want to wait until I have a new computer first.
