- Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
Elena is a werewolf and she is trying to exist in the human world. No one, except her pack, knows what she is, not even her boyfriend. However she has turned her back on her pack and she is trying to make it on her own. But when the pack calls, needing her help, she returns to find more than what she anticipated.
Bitten was Kelley Armstrong’s first novel and it was initially released in 2001. Subsequently she has written 11 more books in the Women of the Underworld series, with the final book in the series expected to be released in July 2012. To date, she has also published numerous other books, series, anthologies and novellas, including Darkest Powers & Darkness Rising and Nadia Stafford series. Bitten is told in a first person narrative by the main character Elena Michaels, the only existing female werewolf. The story is a contemporary fantasy, also known as urban fantasy and includes some romance.
The characters are interesting and the story has a good flow building up to an exciting conclusion. There is plenty of action, with a few twist and turns. The story also includes a few romantic scenes between Elena and her first love, a man she is not sure whether to hate or love, Clayton. As the story unfolds, Elena comes to terms with herself experiencing a good character arc.This is a standalone novel and I am curious to see what Elena gets up to next. I recommend this story as a good book to anyone who enjoys reading paranormal romances involving werewolves.To purchase Bitten from Amazon, click here or on picture above
