Reading Broken and Men of the Otherworld simultaneously allowed me to realize what I had long been suspecting, I read Armstrong for the men of her Otherworld, not the women. Strike that, I read Armstrong for the Werewolf men of her Otherworld, not the women.I’ll admit that I shamelessly passed over Dime Store Magic,Industrial Magic and Haunted to get right down to business with Broken. I appreciated, even enjoyed inclusions of other supernatural races in Stolen, but it was Armstrong’s werewolf lore that got me addicted to her writing, and ever shall be. I thought for sure, that because this book contained a majority of my most favorite Armstrong characters, that I would love Broken but no such luck. Perhaps writing so many non-Pack focused books prior to writing Broken caused Armstrong to lose sight of what made her books so special in the first place, her werewolf lore. The story was mildly entertaining, though incredibly far fetched and certainly breached into wish fulfillment territory. I don’t like babies with my smut, and I pray to God that Armstrong will omit excessive mentions of the twins from Frostbite. I like Elena, I truly do, but she definitely became a Mary Sue in this installment. There simply isn’t a snowballs’ chance in hell that a woman, werewolf or no, in her third trimester could kick ass when she could barely tie her shoes. I’m sad to say it, but all the characters became shells of themselves. Clay and Jeremy were worrying mother hens and while I could certainly see Clay as being overly protective, when is he not? The Clay of Bitten simply wouldn’t do mother hen. He would be appalled by what was done to him in this story. Armstrong crippled him, literally! Gah!Regardless of all the many, many flaws contained in Broken, I still enjoyed it. Let’s face it, a sub par book by Armstrong still trumps most of the other Urban Fantasy out there. And damn, that woman can pen some steam!Bestseller Broken By Kelley Armstrong is a Kindle In this thrilling new novel from the author of Industrial Magic, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on the 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 thankfullyIn this thrilling new novel from the author of Industrial Magic, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on the 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 From the Paperback edition.. Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write Her earliest written efforts were disastrous If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers dismay All efforts to make her produce normal stories failed.Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon She s the author of the NYT bestselling Women of the Otherworld paranormal suspense series and Darkest Powers young adult urban fantasy trilogy, as well as the Nadia Stafford crime series Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.. Bestseller Books Broken “We sacrificed a mosquito. I bet that's what did it. It was probably a virgin too.” I was happy to finally return to Elena's point of view after being away from her voice for a few books. This turned out to be the weakest of the first three starring Elena's POV, but it's still worth checking out.We get plenty of Elena, Clay, Jeremy, Jaime, and the setting of Toronto with an unusual historical mystery involving magic. The Jack-The-Ripper lore was certainly unique although not my favorite side-plot of the series. I kind of missed Stonehaven, but the dirty, gritty feel worked well.The book focuses mainly on Elaine's pregnancy, how overprotective Jeremy and Clay are about it, and her personal fears about changing and endangering the child. Some of it got a little tiresome, but overall I liked the overprotective wolves and thought it cute. Elena's fears were justified but I'm glad she got over some of it. I would worry about shifting causing a miscarriage, so can understand the reasoning.Jaime comes aboard and I enjoyed her scenes. She's one of my top favorites and I love her crush on Jeremy. She gets awkward and trips over everything when the alpha shows up. On the downside she was kind of treated like crap a few times. I definitely wouldn't keep crushing on someone like that without some reciprocity by now. Zoe is a new character...she's fun. I'm not as crazy about the vampires in this series but she's humorous and quirky. Tee fascinated me with her creepy, insane energy. Villains worked - I kind of saw the hidden twist but guessing in advance didn't deter from the story-line. The zombie angle was definitely different, and the story-line was a little cheesy, but it was over the top creative and well structured.
