Led Astray: The Best of Kelley Armstrong by Kelley Armstrong *Review*

*I received a eARC through NetGalley for my honest review*

Two brand new tales anchor this wide-ranging collection from one of urban fantasy's most successful authors. Here is the first time that best-selling fantasy, YA, and crime author Kelley Armstrong has had her stories collected from Otherworld and beyond. With her signature twists and turns, Armstrong gives a fresh spin on city-dwelling vampires, werewolves, and zombies, while also traveling further afield, to a post-apocalyptic fortress, a superstitious village, a supernatural brothel, and even to feudal Japan.

With tales that range from humorous to heart-stopping, these are the stories that showcase Kelley Armstrong at her versatile best.

Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors and I couldn't wait to read this book. 

I very much enjoyed it. I wasn't planning on reading all the short stories in one day but I just couldn't put it down.

I loved all the Cainsville universe ones and the Otherworld universe ones which doesn't surprise my since those two series are my favourites.  

If you are a Kelley Armstrong fan then I suggest you read this book of short stories. 

I give this 5 out of 5

If you want to purchase this book you can do so on September 15th 2015 online and in stores near you.
