    Living With the Dead by Kelley Armstrong

    Now how do I rate Kelley Armstrong's latest in her 'Women of the Otherworld' series? "Living with the Dead" isn't about just one woman. In a lot of ways it's not even about one couple, it's really about two men, two women, a ghost, and the question of what is love.<BR/><BR/>Robyn is a woman who recently lost her love, her soulmate, to a senseless and stupid crime. She spends her time now just going through the motions of living and keeping a scrapbook about good samaritans who are killed for their deeds, furthering reinforcing the futility and stupidity of her husband's death. When, through no real fault of her own, she becomes embroiled in a battle between two supernatural factions in LA, she ends up running for her life with no idea of why she's become a target.<BR/><BR/>Hope is Robyn's best friend and she and her werewolf boyfriend Karl have come to LA to do a story, but really to check on Robyn. These two will have to use all their abilities (she's half demon) to keep Robyn alive long enough to figure out who's after her and why! Then we also have a cop necromancer thrown into the mix. And with Robyn's dead husband joining the search for Robyn and her pursuers, the mix is set.<BR/><BR/>If you're looking for a pure romance, don't look here. If you're looking for a mystery with paranormal elements, an unusual love story that will make you ponder what love is and is not, a story about when and how grief affects different people, and a story about just how whacked out some fringe groups can get...then really pick up "Living With the Dead". You may not exactly be smiling at the end of the book, but you will be panting for the next one.

    A Good Read in the Urban Fantasy Genre

    I snatch up Kelley Armstrong's books in Women of the Otherworld series as soon as they come out. I'm always confident I'm going to have an engrossing and entertaining read, and this book is no exception. It's a departure from the other novels. Almost all the other books are written from a female first person point of view: though each book tends to have different narrators--a werewolf, a witch, an angel, a necromancer. This book is written in third person though and the perspective is shared between different characters, though this book, like the previous book, "Personal Demon," does center around Hope Adams, a half-demon who has to struggle with her nature in a way others in Armstrong's world are spared. I think that makes Hope among the most interesting of Armstrong's heroines, and like her other books this was an engrossing and entertaining read.

    One of my favs

    I wasn't too sure about this one, especially the writing style, but I have to say, this is one of my favorites in the series.

    Not my favorite, but worth the read.

    I really like Kelley Armstrong's serious Women of the Otherworld. This book, however, got a little to confusing at times. It switched back and forth between characters too much or else there were too many character's point of view used. I didn't think I was going to be happy at the end but leave it to this writer to both find a way to end a story yet leave you knowing there's more to come. I've come to like the relationship between Hope and Karl. It gives you a different look into the lives of the Warewolves. And how Kelley Armstrong keeps coming up with new supernaturals is great. It's like a going for a journey and finding new roads to go down and explore.

    Not as good as previous books

    I like this book, but it was not as good as previous books by Kelley Armstrong. The only major problem I had with the book is that the point of view changes constantly from chapter to chapter and it could get confusing. Once I got used to the changing point of views I enjoyed the book and I liked the new characters. Even though the book was not as good as I expected it to be, I am satisfied for the moment and still can't wait for the next book.
