Bitten - Otherworld, Bk 1
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Elena Michaels slips out of bed, careful not to wake her boyfriend. He hates it when she disappears in the middle of the night, and can't understand why any normal woman would crave the small hours of the morning, the dark unsafe downtown streets.

This was an incredible book - I loved every moment of it. It caught my attention right in the beginning with the description of Elena's run. It got even better when Elena went back to the Pack. The tension between her and Clay was absolutely intense. But the descriptions are really what caught my attention. Armstrong seems to really know how it feels to be a wolf - or at least how to describe it so it seems that way!

What a great beginning to a series I am looking forward to following. A wonderfully strong and intelligent female lead who, of course, is surrounded by good looking men, but, unlike a certain vampire series (LKH, pay attention!), she doesn't feel the need to be the only brain nor is she boffing everyone in the cast. I am picking up the second book, "Stolen", as soon as I click, "Save Review"...

I have read all of Kelley Armstrong Women of the Otherworld series so far. Her series is awesome. I enjoyed every book so much, that I ran to the store to buy the rest of the series. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

I loved, loved, LOVED this book!

It would be so easy to babble on and gush about this story, but I'll try to keep myself from writing too much and giving things away. The beginning seemed to have a little bit of a flat quality (not much, since I never wanted to put the book down!), but looking back at it now it seems perfectly appropriate. But once the story takes off there's a lot of action! This is very well plotted! I especially loved how the other characters seemed to grow and evolve as Elena's perception of them changed. Ah, the things we want to see, and the things we refuse to see -- very well done!

I may have to go buy a copy of this for my personal collection, and copies to hand out to others. I may have to go back to upstate New York, and look for wolves... :)

Elena Michaels seems like the typical strong and sexy modern woman. She lives with her architect boyfriend, writes for a popular newspaper, and works out at the gym.She is also a werewolf.

Elena has done all she can to assimilate the human world, but the man whose bite changed her existence forever, and his legacy, continue to haunt her. Thrown into a desperate war for survival that tests her allegiance to a secret clan of werewolves, Elena must reckon with who and what she is in this passionate, page turning novel!!!

Excellent book!!!!

While this is a very good story, the writing exceptional, I disliked the main character...Elena. I agree with Tracey A and Dinah R's opinion of her. I won't be reading the next story because reading more about Elena and her vacillating, whining and self-righteousness is annoying. I might read book three since it has a new character.

This is probably one of my favorite writers and one of my favorite series. Im now reading it all over again for the third or fourth time, it never gets old and I always get to add a new book at the end.
She is a great writer and the stories are amazing! If you havent read this yet you are sooo missing out!!
