Book 2 in the #1 New York Times bestselling Otherworld series

"A taut, sensual thriller that grips from the first page. Elena Michales is at once sublime and sympathetic, a modern heroine who shows that real women bite back."--Karin Slaughter, The New York Times

Elena Michaels is back--and she has company. When a young witch tells Elena that a group of humans are kidnapping supernaturals, Elena ignores the warning. After all, everyone knows there's no such thing as witches. As for the thought of other 'supernaturals', well, she'd just rather not dwell on the possibility. Soon, however, she's confronted with the truth about her world, when she's kidnapped and thrown into a cell-block with witches, sorcerers, half-demons and other werewolves. As Elena soon discovers, dealing with her fellow captives is the least of her worries. In this prison, the real monsters carry the keys.

Lending a mission of vampires, demons, shamans, and witches, Elena is lured into the net of ruthless Internet billionaire Tyrone Winsloe, who is well on his way to amassing a private collection of supernaturals. He plans to harness their powers for himself--even if it means killing them.

For Elena, kidnapped and imprisoned deep underground, unable to tell her friends from her enemies, choosing the right allies is a matter of life and death.

From the Paperback edition.

Good Read

User Review  - TVST - Borders

This book was pretty good. It has a faster pace than Bitten. The way the ending started winding down totally caught me off guard. Some things that you figure will happen in most paranormal books does not happen and you really have a hard time predicating the end. Read full review

Can't decide what to read next!

User Review  - jennifererin - Borders

This book introduces you to other characters that Armstrong writes about. It was a great story about Elena trying to plot her way out of her situation and the struggles of the female psychie. I can't decide whether to read Broken next or read them in order and start with the Dime Store Magic! Read full review
