27) Darkest Powers : Bonus Pack by Kelley Armstrong
Contains three companion stories to the Darkest Powers trilogy.

My Thoughts :
I really enjoyed the Darkest Powers Trilogy and when I came across this package of novella'sI had to have it. Oh and the cover was pretty cool too! Anyway this set of novellas actually more or less makes it as long as a full length book. Which makes this bonus pack even better value for money and worth checking out.
All three stories were interesting and cleared up some questions from the books. Also it meant you finally see some of the story from another angle and it makes a little more sense. I especially liked thethird story which Tori takes over for herself. It was fun and totally reminded me of how her character acted back in the trilogy.
The Darkest Powers trilogy are gone but not forgotten in this lovely collection. Any fans of the series need to check this out and anyone who has read the books yet can make sure they read the novellas in the correct order. Well worth reading.
