A huge thanks to Anne Groell of Bantam US, Antonia Hodgson of Little Brown UK and, particularly, Anne Collins of Random House Canada (who wields the most incisive blue pencil I know).

Kelley Armstrong is the New York Times bestselling author of the Women of the Otherworld series. Living with the Dead did nothing to build onto the overall plotline of this series. It was a filler book that didn't keep my attention. She has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. This was the last book I bought from the series because of how boring it was.

Living with the Dead book. Women of the Otherworld books have never been paranormal romances, but I do expect some flirting, some steamy hooking-up in these stories. The only romantic aspect in Living with the Dead comes from Hope and Karl and their relationship is not the one I enjoy - Hope continues being totally useless with her passive "power" and Karl is as overprotective as ever.

About the Author Kelley Armstrong lives in rural Ontario with her husband, three children and far too many pets. She is the author of nine bestselling Women of the Otherworld novels, as well as a crime series featuring female hitwoman Nadia Stafford, and a young adult trilogy, Darkest Powers.

Redirected from Living with the Dead (Armstrong novel)). Living with the Dead is the ninth novel in Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. When Robyn Peltier-a very human PR rep-is framed for murder, the two people most determined to clear her name are half-demon tabloid reporter Hope Adams, and necromancer homicide detective John Findlay.

They’re smart, sexy, and supernatural. They’re the men and women of the Otherworld—a realm of witches, ghosts, and werewolves who live unseen among us. Only now a reckless killer has torn down the wall, trapping one very human woman in the supernatural cross fire. Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband’s sudden death, trying to put some distance between herself and her memories. Though she’s still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane—the world’s most famous celebutante wannabe—can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in the back room of a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn’s best friend, and Hope’s somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn’s side. Hope Adams follows the kinds of stories whose headlines scream from supermarket checkout lines. But the difference is that Hope’s stories are even weirder—and they’re all true. Though determined to help Robyn, Hope knows it’s only a matter of time before her friend is caught. But it’s not the police Hope is worried about. For Robyn has gotten herself in the middle of a turf war between two powerful Otherworld cabals who’ll spill any amount of blood—human and inhuman—to protect what they consider theirs for all eternity. And the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she’s safer knowing nothing about.

At 20% I thought I had to be more than half way done. At 40% I've given up. I snagged it because of Hope and Karl, but Robyn has to be the dumbest person I've ever tried to read about. For such a "smart" person she spends the 40% I managed to choke down being a flat idiot.

There comes a point in time when a character is just so stupid you can't have any sympathy for them. This is Robyn.

At A Glance
Let's put it this way, I read this book a couple years ago and I completely forgot everything about it. I reread it for this review, and I've already forgotten half of it again.

The Good
Though Hope and Karl aren't my favorite couple of the series, I was excited to see them again in this book. Hope is still struggling to control her chaos demon all while trying to accept and embrace her feelings for Karl, our hot werewolf. I enjoyed them in this book. They don't have a perfect relationship but it's getting there.

I will say one thing about Living with the Dead, Armstrong really went all out on her bad guy...or girl. Adele was batshit crazy. She is a hardcore sociopath and killer. But before she kills people, she likes to toy with them first. The lengths she will go has no bounds. I have read some pretty dark characters in my day but Adele tops the cake.

The Bad
As you can see, there is not much good in this book. It got two stars only because I did enjoy Hope and Karl for the most part. But the rest of the book was so...stupid.

We meet Robyn, a human, who has never been in the series before. I don't know why Armstrong decided to introduce us to her. She is so insignificant to the series it's not even funny. And her being a human just took out the sparkle of reading about interesting supernaturals. At least Finn, a cop, can speak to the dead. But even he wasn't really interesting.

Living with the Dead did nothing to build onto the overall plotline of this series. It was a filler book that didn't keep my attention. This was the last book I bought from the series because of how boring it was. This is my least favorite book of the series.

I think the weirdest thing is that a whole bunch happens but I still yawned through three-forths of it. Then the ending was just blah. I was like, "What was the point of all this?"

Oh, and the last thing. The other books in the series were first person POVs and this one was third person. It really changed the dynamic, in a bad way.

The Snuggly
Not much snuggly going on. Just a little with Karl and Hope. The romance was thin overall.

Final Thoughts
I think I just forgot about another one-forth of the book just now. I have a really great memory and for me not to remember a book is weird. I would not recommend this book. I think series readers might want to read it just because.

You know, I miss the old days of Kelley Armstrong's writing career-back when there were only one or two supernatural races involved in a storyline and a plot that didn't take a flow chart to decipher. Somewhere after "Haunted" the books started to slide just a little bit downhill (not very much) and the books, while they were still good, didn't have that kind of sparkling break neck intensity to them.

So after "Personal Demons" (my least favorite to date) I took a little break from the series. And now that I'm back-well, I'm a little confused.

"Living with the Dead" is really, really different from the other books in the series. Aside from "Personal Demons" all previous books had only one narrator, and everything the narrator, well, narrated, was in first person. Sure there were some asides in third (like the nix and its various partners in "Haunted") but what made these books so good was that they always gave you the inside perspective and nuances of the characters.

This book is not only totally in third person, it has five (yes, count them, five) different narrators-two of whom are men and four of whom have never been in the series before. It made the whole book a completely different experience. But in light of the super complicated plot I suppose it would have been very hard to have just viewpoint in this book and gave the reader any chance of understanding what was going on.

"Living with the Dead" introduces us to our first major non-supernatural character, Robyn Peltier. She's a young, extremely competent PR person currently living in LA after the recent death of her beloved husband, working for a sort of Paris Hilton wanna be named Portia Kane. She's also a good friend of Hope Adam's-but knows nothing about the supernatural side of her friend's life. This all starts to change when first Portia, and then various people Robyn are around start to be killed-leaving her the prime suspect. Now not only is she (unwisely and unintentionally) on the run from the police but from an unknown killer who seems to be able to find her wherever she goes.

Enter Hope and Karl, who want to help and quickly ascertain that something about the killings is involved with the Nast Cabal-and the main detective on the case, a man named Finn, is a necromancer of limited power who doesn't seem to even know that other supernaturals exist. And the more Robyn is tracked by the killer, the more it becomes apparent that a very rare type of supernatural is hunting her-one who will be able to find her anywhere she goes.

Add in the concerns of a massively secretive supernatural organization who all work as Paparazzi because of their special skills (clairvoyance) and Robyn's dead husband's ghosts popping up to assist Finn in his investigation and you have one complicated storyline. Our narrators include: Robyn, Hope, Finn and two clairvoyant's, Adele and Colm.

Despite the third person (which really doesn't allow for as much personality to get through) and the constant viewpoint switching this book does have a compelling plot that moves pretty fast. The only problem is that by the end the many plot lines are so tangled that it's hard to tell what's what.

Still I enjoyed reading this book and it did make for great stay up late reading. But compared to Armstrong's other books-especially the early ones-it comes off fairly lackluster. And I know series fans will be very disappointed to learn that this book contains absolutely no sex scenes-references yes, actual scenes, no.

Three point five stars.

I don't know who first told me that "assuming makes an ASS out of U and ME," but I do know that I was young enough to be shocked that someone said ass. I think it was my mom. The point is, that I (and probably you too) have been aware of this idea for as long as I (and you) can remember.

Living with the Dead is a perfect illustration of that. One assumption leads to a bad decision leads to another assumption lead to another bad decision, etc. That's basically what the entire book is--assumptions and reactions. With terrible consequences. That and a bad guy who is an incredible narcissist with borderline sociopathic tendencies. Adele definitely makes my Top 10 All-Time Most Hateful Villains. She's right up there with Iago
