This is an adult paranormal fantasy novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four Otherworldly Hearts) 
Book Summary
New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong has bewitched audiences with her Otherworld series of supernatural thrillers. Now, in this new collection of shorter fiction, some of Armstrong's most tantalizing lead characters appear alongside her unforgettable supporting players, who step out of the shadows and into the light.

Have you ever wondered how lone wolf Clayton Danvers finally got bitten by the last thing he ever expected: love? Or how the hot-blooded bad-girl witch Eve Levine managed to ensnare the cold, ruthless corporate sorcerer Kristof Nast in one of the Otherworld's most unlikely pairings? Would you like to be a fly on the wall at the wedding of Lucas Cortez and Paige Winterbourne as their eminently practical plans are upended by their well-meaning friends? Or tag along with Lucas and Paige as they investigate a gruesome crime that looks to be the work of a rogue vampire?

Now devotees of the Otherworld can share these special moments with some of their favorite characters - as well as discovering deeper insights into the lives of some of the lesser-known players. But even readers new to the Otherworld universe will find much to love in these seven tales of friendship, adventure, and enduring romance. For when the superhuman men and women of the Otherworld set their minds to a task, they do so with fierce passion and an undivided sense of purpose that make them, in the end, very much human.

My Review

I loved Elena’s book in the otherworld series. I loved them so much that I skipped all the other books in between narrated by other characters in the series. I recently just listed to Paige’s books. And I’ve read the YA series The Gathering. While the Gathering is separate and doesn’t need to be read with this series, they share some common world building. And a few characters do cross over. So, listening to these tales really did help fill in some gaps and make me curious about other characters.
The Eve story was super touching and had me in tears. The Aaron/Cass story was far too short. And I’m not sure how much I really learned from the Logan story. The Elena/Clay story itself was worth the listen. The Paige wedding story was just okay.
Overall, I enjoyed.
Audio Review
Mia Barron and Erik Davies. Both did an amazing job at narration.
