Limited Edition: White leather bound, signed by Kelley Armstrong, numbered, full-color endsheets, and two additional full-color illustrations by Xaviere Dumaire not in the Trade.
The team-spirit sign by the side of the highway seems a good omen to loner Morgan Walsh, as he drives to what could be the most important visit of his life — a chance to join the North American Pack. Then he wakes naked in the woods, surrounded by wolf tracks and a ring of suspicious cops. The situation only gets worse when he’s bailed out by Alpha-elect Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers, her terrifying enforcer and mate.
Disappointed that such a promising young werewolf risked exposing them, Elena isn’t expecting anything from the pesky retrieval job except some much-needed alone time with Clay. Instead, she finds a different kind of evil stalking the streets and forests of Westwood, New York. Trapped in town by a snowstorm and sabotage, Elena, Clay and Morgan must find the mysterious threat before it sets its sights on them.
I won this book in a giveaway! Normally I don’t read a lot of Kelley Armstrong her Subterranean Press novella’s as they are quite pricey, even though I would love to read them all. So I was really excited to have won this.
Forbidden deals with a small town mystery when Elena and Clay get a phone call from the local policy department in a town because Morgan, a werewolf, has been found naked in the woods. When they arrive, they realize there’s more going on and they stay a bit longer to figure out who or what is behind some recent killings. Also some people aren’t happy they are there. It was a fun and short novella, I liked the mystery and reading about one of my favourite couples Elena and Clay.
Every book about Elena and Clay will be one I enjoy, I just love these characters and it’s fun to see them interacts with each other and also with their kids, it adds new dynamics to their relationship. In this book we get a few chapters form Morgan his point of view as well, we met Morgan in Frostbitten, but I forgot some details again, but this book provided enough recap to remind me of what happened. I liked him as a character and hope he’ll join the pack.
It is a pretty short book, but with 200 pages it still provides a decent story and a few hours of fun reading. It wasn’t the best book in the series, but it’s a nice addition and I would recommend it to fans of the series. All in all I am happy I read this book.
To conclude: an enjoyable addition to the series. There’s some mystery and it was fun being back in this world and reading about Elena and Clay. There was enough recap to remind me who Morgan was and I liked him. This book paints a nice view of the small town with it’s mystery and with 200 pages it’s a decent story.
