In Off-Duty Angel , dark witch and half-demon Eve Levine is desperate for a little entertainment while her lover, Kristof Nast, is detained in afterlife court—enough to volunteer an extra week’s worth of angel corps duty just to pass the time. Luckily something even better comes up: a real celestial bounty-hunter mission to trail a shaman, someone who might prove to be a useful lead in Kristof’s court case. Following the target goes smoothly, until he leads Eve to the British Museum, where she inadvertently steps into a secret dimensional passage and stumbles upon a far more enticing puzzle . . . and a much greater danger.Normally I don't review short stories, but I was checking Netgalley one day and I found the eGalley of The Hunter and The Hunted by Kelley Armstrong; I just request it without even reading the description (I am a fan of Kelley Armstrong's work = D). Then I noticed that there were 2 short stories, one of the stories - Stalked had already been published before, but I haven´t read it.
This collection also includes Stalked (Otherworld #7.3), previously printed in My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon.
It’s not a good sign when Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers resort to everyday activities on their long-awaited honeymoon in St. Louis. But their encroaching boredom is about to take a backseat to an unexpected threat that catches Clay’s attention. A non-pack werewolf is clearly stalking them—out to claim Elena for himself—and Clay has no intention of letting the upstart mutt spoil their romantic getaway, even if that means deceiving Elena as he pursues the rival werewolf on his own.
Stalked is about Elena and Clayton (my favorite couple in the series Women of the Otherworld), finally after 18 years they have their long awaited honeymoon and specially prepared by Clayton. Stalked is a short story (very short only 20 pages) and is told from the point of view of Clayton. I like Stalked, I love this couple and my only problem is that it was too short.
The second short story is Off-Duty Angel, this is story of Eve and Kristof. She is bored because Kristof is working and she´s on "vacation" from her job as an angel. In this short story we see Eve interact with her lover Kristof and her work partner the angel Trsiel. I did enjoy reading Off-Duty Angel because I loved to see those characters again.
And the big plus of this ebook are the first 6 chapters of the book Thirteen, the thirteenth and final book in the series Women of the Otherworld.
