Books by Kelley Armstrong

A
Watcher in the Woods

Watcher in the Woods is the fourth installment in Kelley Armstrong's highly original Rockton series featuring police detective Casey Duncan and her boyfriend Sheriff Eric Dalton. The book could technically be read as a standalone, but I wouldn't really recommend starting here since the previous entr ...

B
Aftermath

Kelley Armstrong’s Aftermath takes us into the dark world of school shootings, shattered friendships and redemption. It’s an emotional tale that will keep you thinking about it long after you put the book down. There was nothing ordinary about that day; it had been both the most glorious and ...

Missing

Here in the Northern Midwest the weather is warming up, the sun has finally come out from the clouds it’s been hiding behind, flowers are blooming and it seems as though summer may actually be just around the corner. I had my doubts there for a while. And of course, thoughts of summer immediately ...

City of the Lost

As a fan of Kelley Armstrong's paranormal romances, I was eager to get lost in City of the Lost, the first book in a new series featuring police detective Casey Duncan. Ms. Armstrong's fans will be interested to learn that this novel does not contain paranormal elements, but don't let this keep you ...

The Reckoning

I've loved Kelley Armstrong's writing ever since I read Bitten a long time ago, so I was very excited to review The Reckoning, the last book in her YA trilogy Darkest Powers. I even read the first two in the series prior to reviewing to make sure I did justice to this book. I'm happy to say that thi ...

Frostbitten

I started Frostbitten expecting a romance, but although there's a married couple at the center of the book whose relationship is still in development mode (and thus open to a romantic plot line), there wasn’t sufficient time spent on this element for me, Therefore, I am reviewing the book as a par ...

The Awakening

The Awakening is the second book in Armstrong’s Darkest Powers trilogy. This is an incredibly fun young adult series featuring a young necromancer and her supernatural friends. If you haven’t read the first book, you should stop reading here, because there’s really no way to talk about what ...

The Summoning

Since I really like paranormals, I’ve been meaning to get into Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series for quite some time. However, my first taste of her paranormal works came from The Summoning, the first book in her young adult trilogy. I got it from the library in preparation for ...

Living with the Dead

I’ve been on and off Kelley Armstrong for a while and now it’s official: I am off. S-o-o-o-o-o off. This one, the latest in what’s turning out to be the interminable Women of the Otherworld series, is a textbook example of how not to engage a reader. You take multiple stor ...

Personal Demon

It’s tricky to review a book in a series you've followed as a reader since the beginning. I first read Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten in 2002, and it’s become one of my favorite novels. Sadly, Personal Demon, the 8th in Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series, has only cemented something that ...
