Overview

Broken (Women of the Otherworld Series #6) by Kelley Armstrong

In this thrilling new novel from the author of Industrial Magic, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on twenty-first-century—and become his next target.

Ever since she discovered she’s pregnant, Elena Michaels has been on edge. After all, she’s never heard of another living female werewolf, let alone one who’s given birth. But thankfully, her expertise is needed to retrieve a stolen letter allegedly written by Jack the Ripper. As a distraction, the job seems simple enough—only the letter contains a portal to Victorian London’s underworld, which Elena inadvertently triggers—unleashing a vicious killer and a pair of zombie thugs.

Now Elena must find a way to seal the portal before the unwelcome visitors get what they’re looking for—which, for some unknown reason, is Elena.

It was great to see another Elena and Clay story. What I love about the Otherworld woman is that they are strong, capable, talented and flawed. They make for great reading. It is also refreshing to see characters mature and move through life dealing with common day issues just like us mortals (family, babies) as well ask trying to close portals to other demensions.

The newest addition to the Women of the Underworld Series, Broken, returns to werewolf protagonist Elena Micheals. The unique twist on a letter thought to be written by Jack the Ripper and the portal it opens is a fascinating and entertaining premise to an exciting, tension-ridden plot. It is a fast-paced, page turner, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend the book and the series. According to the author's newsletter, the series is currently slated for at least ten books. Book seven turns to Jaime as the narrator. Though Broken has a completely satisify (and exciting!) conclusion, enough questions are left about the future of Elena Micheals, the pack, and her children for a later return to her story. Her story is far from over. I look forward to reading more in this series about all of the intriguing characters introduced in the first six novels and in the Dates From Hell anthology. If you haven't begun this series yet, I recommend it - but be warned, once you pick these books up, you won't be able to put them down!

She is the only female werewolf in existence and she is pregnant by her werewolf lover something that has never happened before. The men in Elena Michaels¿ pack are smothering her in their need to keep her safe and protected she understands their motives, but could use some action in her life. That occurs when half-demon Xavier Reese asks her to steal the letter ¿From Hell¿ supposedly written by jack the Ripper. In return Xavier will tell her where a rogue werewolf is hiding.----- The pack believes they can accomplish the theft with no danger to Elena so they travel to sorcerer Patrick Shanahan¿s Toronto home where the letter is located. They pull off the caper without a hitch but disaster happens when Elena¿s blood from an insect bite drips on the letter opening a dimensional portal. Two zombies enter from the other side bringing cholera to Toronto, contaminating the water supply and spreading other diseases. The sorcerer directs his zombies to kidnap Elena, who realizes she must find the practitioner causing the havoc that threatens her babies, pack and Toronto.------ The Women of the Other World story that stared with BITTEN and continued with STOLEN comes to a heartwarming conclusion in BROKEN. Elena is very happy with Clay and considers her pack as her family. Kelley Armstrong writes a fanatic urban fantasy filled with romance and mystery that will satiate fans of three genres. Nobody will guess the identity of the villain though that person is in plain sight for Monday morning quarterbacks. That is just part of the charm of this spellbinding, magical and delightful tale and miniseries.------ Harriet Klausner

Kelley Armstrong is a progeny when it comes to supernatural writing. Her books leave you breathless with their racy romances, the constant struggles, and the exciting stories. She does all of this effortlessly and you have no choice but to plummet without stumbling straight into her world. She has created such a strong presence in all of her characters that everything about them makes them seem real! You get so caught up in their stories that you feel you are a part of them. I cannot say enough good things about Kelley!

Elena and her werewolf pack are back in action in Broken. This time around, a very pregnant Elena unwittingly opens a portal that may have unleashed historical Jack the Ripper onto an unsuspecting modern day Toronto. Amidst zombies, a cholera outbreak, and vicious and diseased rats, Elena and company must try to get the portal closed and kill the ones who came out of it while staying alive themselves. I really enjoy this Women of the Otherworld series. What I love most about it is the wit, sarcasm and brass that Armstrong writes into her characters. It gives the books a fun and fresh feel that I really enjoy. Broken is exciting, very entertaining and has a great ending. I highly recommend this series.

Bitten was the best and staying in line I found these book stolen and broken the follow up book also great reading . The books following thow were a little out to me . If she had stayed in the same story line I would be still buying her books . I had gotten several books on tape ( CD'S ) before I found they had changed story lines . I wish she would write another book on these characters I found in Bitten . I really enjoyed them and it is so hard to find a werewolf book as good as Bitten .

This book was really good, the only problem I have with the book is not really with the book its with the writer, the books start out with a main character then the next book is someone else in the first story, its not bad. I was just really confused, after reading them all I really understood and liked the books, if you like crazy thriller books this is a good choice.

This is the sixth book in the series 'Women of the Otherworld'. Honestly, I'm shocked that I have actually stuck with a series for so long. Most of the time, I will get bored of a series by the second or third book. But, Kelley Armstrong is amazing. 'Broken' is my favorite book of the series. Kelley Armstrong brought back Elena, so, I was definitely excited an pleased. The story line was fun and had me wanting for. I felt that the book was too short. That's how much I loved it.

Okay so I LOVED THIS BOOK! I didn't like the Jack the Ripper in it even though I LOVE Jack the Ripper stories. I just don't think that parts meshed well. BUT Elena and Clay having a baby! But wait there is always a twist! Far be it for me to spoil it for you! But you'll LOVE it!

Broken is the latest in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld. This one brings back Elena (the only female werewolf in existence) and her pack as the central characters. Elena and crew inadvertantly unleash Jack the Ripper on Toronto and need to rectify the situation. This is somewhat complicated by Elena's pregnancy and how it affects what she does. Its fast paced and hard to put down. I really enjoy Elena's interactions with the pack and particularly with other supernaturals she meets.

Kelley Armstrong does it again. I must admit, when I found out the whole "Women of the Otherworld“ series wasn't totally based on Elena I was kind of disappointed. It took me 4 years to buy the third book. I'm so glad I finally bought it and am continuing on. All the women are different, with strengths in different areas, but they're all wonderful characters. People should definitely acquire this series, I'm betting they won't be displeased.
