Bitten (Women of the Otherworld, #1)

Ever since her parents were killed in a car accident when she was five, Elena Michaels has longed for a normal family life. Smart, beautiful, and engaged to be married, Elena hopes to fulfill that dream when disaster strikes. Not only has her fiancé lied about his secret life as a werewolf, but he's made her one, too. She has no choice but to join him at Stonehaven, the upstate New York home of an elite pack of werewolves.

In an attempt to break away, she moves to Toronto to lead a normal life. Working as a journalist, Elena now lives with her new architect boyfriend, works out in the basement gym of their high-rise apartment, lunches with girlfriends from the office, and —once a week, at four in the morning —runs naked and furred through a downtown Toronto ravine, ripping out the throats of her animal prey. But when a band of outlaw werewolves threatens the Stonehaven pack, Elena's feral instincts drive her back there to join the defense. What follows is a war for territory, for pride, and ultimately for Elena herself.

Writing with the visceral power of Anne Rice, Kelley Armstrong has created a fascinating story of a woman struggling for her identity.

I loved Kelly Armstrong's YA books so I thought I would read this. And it was awesome. You can't help but like Elena, her witty remarks is what made me love her. She didn't grow up being a werewolf so for her it has been harder to adjust not to mention the way she became one. She tries leaving the pack to live among humans. But it isn't all that easy and she gets drawn back to her pack. Elena is tough and fun and always has something to say. I loved this book and can't wait to read more of the series.


  1. This is the book that started my love affair with Kelley Armstrong's books! My obsession with her writing started with Bitten! Love it and would definetly recommend it as well! How far have you got with Kelley's books? I keep telling family and friends that they need to read them!

  2. I have read all her books. All the Darkest Powers and all The OTherworld books, including Men of the Otherworld and Tales of the Otherworld. Oh but I have not read Exit Strategy and its 2nd book.

    I love Clay and Elena!! They are my favorite
