Book Watch: Broken

Broken
by Kelley Armstrong
Format: Paperback, 480 pages
Publisher: Spectra
Pub Date: April 25, 2006
ISBN: 0553588184

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.

I've only read one Kelley Armstrong book, BITTEN, and i really enjoyed that one. This book is a prequel to it.

I'd recommend this author to anyone who enjoys paranormal books or dark adventure novels. For those who used to love Laurell K. Hamilton, you guys should try this author. :D

ACK!!!!! I adore Kelley Armstrong. She's a Canadian and I love that in BITTEN she makes fun of the former mayor of Toronto, Mel Lastman. I love that the book starts out in Toronto.

I've read everything she's written and although her last book (Haunted) wasn't the best, the rest of them have all been amazing. I'm soooooooooo glad she's going back to writing Elena with this novel. I think Elena's my fave of all her characters.
