      3.5 stars. Review originally published on fantasyliterature.Kelley Armstrong has published several series of urban fantasy and paranormal novels, including her WOMEN OF THE OTHERWORLD contemporary fantasy series, in which werewolves, vampires, and other supernatural creatures live alongside humans, and the CAINSVILLE series, focusing on the lives in and around a town with mysterious supernatural elements.

      Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsRAKSHASHI - 4/5Given the amount of Speculative Fiction that I read, encountering a new-to-me supe is a rarity, so it was a pleasure hanging with Armstrong's Rakshashi. The lore was nicely fleshed out considering this short's length, and Amrita was a very likable character.KAT - 5/5I listened to the DARKEST POWERS trilogy a while back, so KAT was a welcome trip down memory lane while also contributing something extra to the original series by highlighting a lesser known pr [...]

      If Ray Bradbury had written this story, it would've been devastating. But it wasn't written by Bradbury. I wish it had been - the idea seems like one he would've loved. Sadly, I just don't care for Armstrong's writing at all.A little girl has always been told not to open the door. At first, this seems like the very normal sort of stricture that most parents place upon their young children. But gradually, we realize that this family is not in a normal situation, and that there's a reason for the [...]

      5 out of the otherworld stars! This anthology was just freaking fantastic. I am a self confessed Kelley Armstrong fangirl and I gobble up everything she writes so I was very excited to read this book. That being said, I'm not usually a fan of short stories unless they're set in a world I already know and love and so I didn't have particularly high hopes for the standalone stories in this anthology although I knew i'd love the Otherworld stories. I am so glad to say that all my expectations were [...]

      Arc provided by Tachyon Publications through NetgalleyAs someone who has read _ and loved _the entire "Women of The Otherworld" series as well as the Darkest Powers trilogy, and lets not forget The Darkness Rising series, I am a big fan of this author.And there's a reason to that: Kelley Armstrong's writing does not disappoint.This book is another good example of that. If you want an anthology filled with stories that will leave you shock-surprised, this is just the thing for you!Have fun and do [...]

    7. Cathy (cathepsut) on said:

      Mostly very short stories, quite a few of them without a lot of tension. There are some good stories in between, but allover not a terribly exciting offer. Nice for fans of the author. Be aware that most of these stories (almost all?) have been published before.*~*~*~*~*Rakshashi: Demons, Hindu mythology, likeable character, good plot, liked it well enough. 3/5 stars.Kat, A Darkest Powers / Darkness Rising Universe story: Vampires, witches, action from the get go, excellent world building. Too b [...]

    8. Marta Cox on said:

      Kelley Armstrong is an author who always seems to deliver top notch urban fantasy and this collection of short stories and snippets is such an interesting mixture. Because of the sheer amount here I won't review each and every one as that might make for an extremely lengthy review and truth be told that might be boring and also I already struggle to reign my enthusiasm in as it is! What I really liked was the simple fact that although we get snippets from her Otherworld and Cainsville universes [...]

      Review copyKelley Armstrong is a New York Times bestselling author. Her first novel Bitten was turned into a TV series which just completed its second season on the SYFY channel.In Led Astray, you’ll discover stories with new characters from within and outside Armstrong’s popular novels. Here you will find two original tales from Cainsville, plus journeys to and beyond the worlds of Darkest Powers, Age of Legends, Otherworld, and more.To be perfectly honest, prior to getting a copy of Led As [...]

      Spoiler free thoughts on the stories within Led AstrayRakshashi (standalone) - This was a nice little standalone and introduced us to Amrita. She is a  Rakshashi who is doing penance for the life she lived previously. I found the myth and story to be interesting. Armstrong delivered a twist at the end that I quite enjoyed.Kat (Darkest Powers universe, non-series narrator) Kat is set in the world of the Darkest Powers series, a young adult series. This was action packed as young Kat and a vampi [...]

      Check out my blog to see Reviews of Book and Movies, and check out some Recipes!Another AMAZING job by Kelley Armstrong. She does not rank in my top all-time favorites for nothing. I love the short snippets into her dark and twisted mind. I really hope to see more of these stories developed in the future, if I could only pick one, it would have to be the first story about the Rakshasi. I want a WHOLE series on "Amrita" and her kind, how fascinating. Loved Nick's brothel problems and anything tha [...]

      I absolutely LOVED Patrick's story and it was a story that shocked me! I love Patrick regardless and the fact that he 'gives as well as takes' but this was a side to Patrick that I did not know existed. I can't believe how Gabriel came about, well I can but not in that particular way This series is friggin amazing!!!!

      I received a copy in exchange for an honest reviewI'll share my thoughts on each short story and end with a conclusion and list of my favourite short stories.Rakshashi (standalone)This one was nice enough, not too impressed. It was pretty short, we get a bit of the feel for his life and background and it nicely wraps things up. I did like how it seemed like he was capable and knew what he was doing and even though he deceives someone I understood why he did that. Original concept and supernatura [...]

      As with all my short story collection reviews, I’ve broken LED ASTRAY down into its component parts to talk about my favourites – and least favourites – in the collection. While these stories do contain spoilers for some of Armstrong’s work, this review is spoiler free!Rakshasi 5/5Features a supernatural called a Rakshani named Amrita, originally from ancient India but currently bound to an American family of demon hunters. Amrita uses her powers of illusion and shape-shifting to…surpr [...]

      Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewRakshashiThat’s quite an interesting story about a vampire, a character with myths that I did not know about and I admit that I was curious to find out what a Rakshashi was. A small story that managed to surprise me. I would have liked to have a series filling this little novella. 4/5KatWe discover the story of two young women, Kat and Daisy, a girl with special gifts and a vampire who are fugitives and are caught up here for the first time. I have never r [...]

      I’m always a little hesitant when it comes to anthologies, as my experience with them can be varied. Still, when the opportunity to review LED ASTRAY came along, I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve fallen in love with some of Armstrong’s past novels, like her Darkest Powers series and was anxious to read more of her writing.Usually, my main issue with anthologies is that the story can feel incomplete due to the length or the characters aren’t developed enough. I had no such problems with the m [...]

      I really enjoyed this collection of Kelley Armstrong short stories. Some were part of her existing worlds, while others were standalones. Almost all were winners for me and I think any fan would enjoy this.Rakshashi - This standalone short gives us a peek inside the life of an immortal woman, bound in servitude, to act as a hand of justice to her masters. It's supposed to be temporary, until she can balance the scales of her wrongdoing in life, but her actions line the pockets of those who could [...]

      Rating: 3.25/5Not the most exciting story but i enjoyed reading a little about young Gabriel!Merged review:It was nice to get a glimpse of how The hunt gets new hunter.Merged review:I didn't think i could like (kind of) Patrick and hate Seanna more but thanks to this novella this is now the case!

      Led Astray: The Best of Kelley Armstrong is a book full of short stories all by Kelley Armstrong. Some of them are standalones. But a lot of them relate to her various series.The short stories featured in this book:- Rakshashi (standalone from 2011, appeared in The Monster's Corner)- Kat (Darkest Powers universe, non-series narrator from 2009, appeared in Eternal Kiss: 13 Vampire Tales of Blood and Desire)- A Haunted House of Her Own (standalone from 2009, appeared in Twilight Zone: 19 Original [...]

      This collection of short stories give us a glimpse into what goes on around us that we cannot see or if we accidentally get a glimpse choose to dismiss. Kelley Armstrong doesn’t simply write stories – she creates other worlds. Worlds inhabited by Fae, Vampires, Werewolves and all sorts of “Otherworld” beings. Worlds that exist within the one we mere humans inhabit. Her beings walk among us going about their lives as we go about ours. Ms. Armstrong gives her readers a nice mix of stories [...]

    21. ♆ BookAddict✒ La Crimson Femme on said:

      This dark anthology is fantastic. This is how fairy tales used to be - grim and harsh. In this collection of over 20 short stories, Ms. Armstrong demonstrates over and over again how she is a master of her craft. I enjoyed every single story and felt chills in some of them. Many of the stories have no happily ever afters or even a happily for now. Instead, it seems the warning is clear - be careful of what you wish for. For those who have never read a Ms. Armstrong book, this collection can be r [...]

      Review originally posted on my blog: A Book ObsessionI've really enjoyed all of Kelley's books, including the other anthology, Otherworld Nights. So when I had the chance to read this one I didn't hesitate. Unfortunately, while LED ASTRAY was enjoyable, it just didn't suck me or wow me like I had hoped. Anthologies, and short stories are tough tricks because unless they are longer novellas, the short format just doesn't lend to the full set up I would like. However, in cases like Otherworld Nigh [...]

    23. Sultry Steamy Reading on said:

      I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The truth is, Kelley Armstrong's Bitten is actually one of my favorite paranormal romance novels. Even the series is one of my favorite TV shows, despite the fact that it's not as popular as other shows that feature paranormal characters. That being said, I may be a bit biased with this book even before I started reading it. Because, hey, I like Kelley Armstrong, so I'm already think that this anthol [...]

    24. Kathy Martin on said:

      This anthology contains 23 stories set in a variety of the worlds Kelley Armstrong has created in her novels and in other fantasy worlds. My favorites where the Cainsville stories especially Devil May Care about how Patrick came to be Gabriel's father and Gabriel's Gargoyles which tells a story from Gabriel's childhood that helps explain the man he becomes. Screams of Dragons may be waking me up at night for quite a while as I try to decide whether the main character was already broken or if he [...]

      I received this eARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.Kelley Armstrong has been one of my all time favorite authors for years! I adored her Otherworld series, ate up all her YA books, and am extremely hooked in her new Cainsville series. Though, the hardest thing for me is always tracking down her short stories that are in numerous anthologies. Luckily she's recently been releasing her own anthologies of particular the [...]

      This is a collection of short stories by Kelley Armstrong, drawing upon her various worlds as well as several stand alones.There are a lot of stories that draw from Kelley Armstrong’s various world series – and some of these I haven’t read. For me this was particularly a problem for the short stories based on the Cainsville series since I hadn’t read them. In some ways I think the order of the stories was off, if Devil May Care had come first rather than last, the world would have been m [...]

      Led Astray is an anthology of work from Kelley Armstrong, most previously published in various places. The stories dip from the past through to the future, including some post-apocalyptic scenarios, one of which is set in a future affected by the goings on in the Darkest Powers world. I would definitely be interested in reading more of that future if Kelley decided to write a novel there…I appreciated how substantial some of the stories were. Ones you could really get involved and absorbed in. [...]

      3*sReview posted hereokpassionforlifeKelley Armstrong has to be in my top ten authors to read, her world building and storytelling are brilliant and I really become engrossed in her stories – that being said, this book didn’t really do it for me. Yes the stories are well written, they are intriguing and quite unique…. But what they didn’t do - was excite me. I know that a short story is a tricky thing, it has to pull you in and tell a story in such a short space plus the endings usually [...]
