Reviews

Praise for Led Astray: The Best of Kelley Armstrong Book Nook Ten Best Books I Read in 2015A Book Frivolity 10 Fantastic Fantasy Releases for September 2015 "[STAR] From the first moment, this collection of fantastical tales sizzles with dark promise, rich world-building, and complex, often haunting characters. In "Rakshashi," Amrita has long since completed her penance for the crimes she committed as a mortal, and is willing to take any avenue to capture her reward. Tanya is a woman with a gaslighting husband and a complicated history in "A Haunted House of Her Own." "Dead Flowers by a Roadside" features a grieving man who can speak to ghosts--all but the ones he most longs to hear from. "Harbinger" introduces a group of spirits who have a message but no voice. Each story feels innovative and exciting, and they work together to create a harmonious whole from glittering supernatural fragments. The stories are set at various times and places but all feel as though they spring from the same dark, dangerous, and fantastical world.
