Reviews for Chaotic: A Novella
No rating provided
This novella takes place in Kelly's Women of the Otherworld series and is an introduction to Hope Adams, a Chaos half-demon. It also features Karl Marsten in a chapter of his life after he becomes reconciled to the North American werewolf Pack and is on fairly good terms with them. This novella originally appeared in the anthology Dates from Hell edited by Kim Harrison.We open as Hope is attending a museum gala with a date arranged by her mother and totally bored by Douglas who is obviously more interested in networking than in getting to know her. Slipping away, she confronts Karl who is in the process of stealing some jewelry from a closed exhibit. From there it's action all the way since Hope thinks she's working for the Council while actually she is being manipulated by a Sorcerer in a spot of unsanctioned revenge against Karl. Not as good as Armstrong's longer novels but still a pleasant short entertainment.read more
