Kelley Armstrong has written a deliciously wicked book. What she conjured up is the hilariously hip Women of the Otherworld series. Books by kelley armstrong. The Otherworld Series.

The series began in 2001 with Bitten, featuring werewolf Elena Michaels. The book series wrapped up in 2012 with a trilogy featuring Savannah Levine, who joined the cast in book two, Stolen, as a twelve-year-old girl and grew up throughout the series, taking her place at the end as a full-fledged Woman of the Otherworld. After the final novel, Thirteen, the series continued with short fiction and novellas, finally concluding in 2016 with the novella, Driven, and short fiction collection, Otherworld Chills.

I've got to get out of here - I don't have a lot of time left. Philip doesn't stir when I slip from the bed. There's a pile of clothing tucked underneath my dresser so I won't have to risk the squeaks and groans of opening drawers and closets. I pick up my keys, clasping my fist around them so they don't jangle, ease open the door and creep into the hallway. My legs now itch as well as hurt and I curl my toes to see if the itching stops. It doesn't. It's too late to drive to a safe place now-the itching has crystallized into a sharp burn. I stride out onto the streets, looking for a quiet place to Change. Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey. Elena Michaels is a werewolf. The man who made her one has been left behind, but his dark legacy has not. And though Elena struggles to maintain the normal life she's worked so hard to create, she cannot resist the call of the elite pack of werewolves from her past. Her feral instincts will lead her back to them and into a desperate war for survival that will test her own understanding of who, and what, she is.

So I watched the show first, so a four out of five might be unfair since I was comparing and contrasting the entire time (I read this one soley so I could read the rest of the series--I knew I'd be confused if I just went off of Season 1 of Bitten). I appreciate that the show did not take too many creative licenses and the book was very much like the show. I like that I got a lot of background in the book that the show glosses over--definitely helped fill in the blanks.The book did a much stronger job of illustrating Elena and Clay's connection and pull towards one another, but the mutt rebellion plot line was more intricate in the show. So overall I liked it, and I'll be buying the next book (especially since Season 2 of Bitten doesn't have a start date yet in the U.S.)
BITTEN is definitely a page turner and I think it's the writing that really holds it together. While the plot has become as mundane as a detective novel, the character development is intriguing and I loved the way everything tied together at the end. As someone who visits this genre a lot I'm very hard to please and while there were some internalized social constructs that had me questioning the messages the novel conveyed I felt that the character growth made up for it.

I got the audible bundle deal for the book and am quite pleased with the narration. The sound effects used were very rare but enhanced the scenes they were used in. The narrator had a wide range of inflections and it was easy to tell the characters apart. She was very natural and, if I'm honest, half the reason I went ahead and got the second book in the series. Overall, I'm excited to see how Elena grows in the next novel and curious to see how the author handles world building.
It’s not a copy of others out there. There are many scenes that surprised me - things that hadn’t been done that way before. I like the author’s thinking. For example, scenes of werewolves wrestling, playing “IT,” catching and eating an animal, things after eating the animal. There was one scene (not the major climax mentioned below) where I thought “Uh oh, is this going to be one of those stupid things to put the heroine in danger?” But it wasn’t. It was smart. I wasn’t expecting that. I was pleased. This is good storytelling. Good character and plot development. And I liked the major source of conflict between the couple, and how that worked and developed.

I almost did not read this because it’s first person, but now I’m glad I read it.

One negative: Heroine did something stupid in the major climax.

Some readers felt Elena was cheating on her boyfriend. I didn’t see it as cheating. I saw it as she’s single, no commitments, she is dating two guys because she can’t decide whom she wants. I know, this was not exactly dating. But it was similar because she wasn’t married or engaged. She was trying to find herself - figure out what she wanted and whom she wanted.

Some readers did not like the first sex scene being similar to rape. I didn’t see it that way. Twice the guy asked her to say stop if she wanted. She didn’t say stop. The result was aggressive alpha dominating in sex. It was good. This was better than some of those BDSM scenes with males dominating. I liked it. They were hot for each other.

Some readers did not like Elena’s personality. I don’t always want a well balanced perfect heroine. I liked that she was angry about things and refused to forgive. I can identify with that. It was good conflict. She also had a tendency toward violence. That made her more interesting.

Narrative mode: 1st person Elena. Story length: 518 pages. Swearing language: moderate to strong including religious swear words, but rarely used. Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: 5. Setting: current day Toronto, Canada, and New York State. Copyright: 2001. Genre: paranormal romance, urban fantasy romance.
So many people talk about how must they love Kelly Armstrong's books and this series in particular. I couldn't even finish this book: just couldn't get into caring about the characters but the book acted like I should. No good character development.
