An erotically charged, addictive thriller from the future queen of suspense.

Living in Toronto for a year, Elena is leading the normal life she has always dreamed of, including a stable job as a journalist and a nice apartment shared with her boyfriend. As the lone female werewolf in existence, only her secret midnight prowls and her occasional inhuman cravings set her apart. Just one year ago, life was very different. Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away. Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape.

But now the Pack has called Elena home to help them fight an alliance of renegade werewolves who are bent on exposing and annihilating the Pack. And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her "family," she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel. She has made her choice. Trouble is, she's increasingly uncertain if it's the right one.

An erotically charged thriller, Bitten will awaken the voracious appetite of every reader, as the age-old battle between man and beast, between human and inhuman forces, comes to a head in one small town and within one woman's body.


From the Paperback edition.

I do like Kelley Armstrong and her world - Bitten brought me into the world. Elena is reasonably strong, even though her back story is ludicrous (no one thought to take her to therapy for screaming ... Read full review

User Review  - Karen - Goodreads

I wasn't impressed with the story nor the author's writing style. When an author says "I won't bore you with the details of the fight" (more than once!)she/he lost me as a reader. You follow the action or you don't write a book with action. Simple. Read full review
