As a curious six year old, Clayton discovered the secret that werewolves do exist. Instead of running from that fact, he asked to get bitten. That lead to a time when he was alone and trying to deal with the shock of his new existence, it is later realized that Clay is the youngest to ever be able to change forms. The Pack is lead by an Alpha and it is a group of werewolves that keep the mutts away and keep their existence quiet. When word got to the Pack, that there was a young boy able to change forms, it is decided to try to bring him to the Pack. Jeremy, who is line for being Alpha decided to try to bring the boy to the Pack. 
Jeremy has his own problems to deal with, secrets surrounding his birth of who and what his mother is; also he must finally find a way to defeat his father. His father, Malcolm, is also in line to be Alpha and Jeremy knows that he would not survive in a Pack with Malcolm as Alpha.
This book, “Men of the Otherworld” branches off from Ms. Armstrong’s series “Women of the Otherworld”. I find Ms. Armstrong to be an accomplished writer and I thoroughly enjoy every book of hers that I have read. In this book the reader discovers the truth to how Clayton became a werewolf and how he finds himself so loyal to Jeremy. Also, some new facts are learnt of Jeremy’s past and there are openings to find out more about Jeremy in the future. This book holds four short stories, all of which are wonderfully written and I would strongly suggest this book to anyone who has read the “Women of the Otherworld” series or if you are new to Kelley Armstrong. All proceeds for this book are going to "The World Literary of Canada". 

Book Blurb for Men of the Otherworld

As a curious child, Clayton didn’t resist the bite—he asked for it. But surviving as a lone child werewolf was more than he could manage—until Jeremy came along and taught him how to straddle the human-werewolf worlds, gave him a home…and introduced him to the Pack. So begins this volume, featuring three of the most intriguing members of the American Pack—a hierarchical founding family where bloodlines mean everything, and each day presents a new, thrilling, and often deadly challenge. For as Clayton grows from a wild child to a clever teen who tests his beloved mentor at every turn, he must learn not only to control his animal instincts, but to navigate Pack politics—including showing his brutal arch nemesis, Malcolm, who the real Alpha is...
