Fiction Tuesday - Driven
Kelley Armstrong has a reputation for doing the unexpected, but in all of my years of following the OTHERWORLD STORIES I never would have guessed that Malcolm Danvers would be re-inducted into the American Pack. I genuinely thought that the probability of pigs flying was higher! DRIVEN begins with him meeting Elena in Bulgaria to discuss terms, ends with the unveiling of his true reason for rejoining, and there’s a kickass mutt hunt in-between.
This short takes place a couple of months after FORSAKEN, so because the two are closely intertwined it’s recommended that you read both. And, although the novella stands well enough on its own, newcomers will definitely miss out on the long running character histories. Malcolm didn’t become the nightmare of the werewolf world overnight, and in order to truly appreciate his level of depravity it’s important to start from ground zero.
Michaels is my favourite OTHERWORLD narrator, and I loved that she was this title’s lead. She’s getting more adept in her role as Alpha, and I really enjoyed how she handled Danvers senior. Wolves have a long life span, and the way the Pack is run has drastically changed since Malcolm was an enforcer, so it was fun watching him date himself, and I took real pleasure in the fact that his infamy was lost on the younger generation.-RabidReads
This one has really been flying off the shelf at our library. Even those who aren't exposed to her Otherworld stories are taking to this one. Maybe its the cover.
