Summary Bitten author Kelley Armstrong

Bitten author Kelley Armstrong

Ed through a downtown Toronto ravine ripping out the throats of her animal prey But when a band of outlaw were wolves 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 herselfWriting with the visceral power of Anne Rice Kelley Armstrong has created a fascinating story of a woman struggling for her identity. This one s been hanging around for a while since it was recommended to me sometime last year I saw that kiwiria loved it and remembered that I had it so thought I should get onto it sooner rather than later To be honest the fact that it s about werewolves put me off I greatly enjoyed Kerri Arthur s Riley Jensen Guardian series the main character is a werewolf and Kresley Cole has some wonderful lycanthrope characters whom I love but generally they don t hold the attraction that vampires do Well I really should re think that nowElena Michaels is an orphan with a horrible past of foster families and abusive foster fathers since her parents died in a car accident when she was little Meeting and falling in love with Clay an esteemed anthropologist doing a stint of teaching at the University of Toronto was the first time she could be herself and he was the first person she could be honest and open with Until she s bitten by a werewolf and becomes the first female werewolf ever and forced into a life she did not want with the PackTen years later she s carving a human life for herself in Toronto as a journalist living with her boyfriend Philip and forcing herself not to Change until she can t help it When she does she goes out in the early hours of the morning and chases security guards in the car parks and rabbits in the ravines Her attempt at fitting in with humans comes to a jarring halt when the Pack leader Jeremy asks her to return to Stonehaven in New York State There s a killer on the loose in the town who s obviously a non Pack werewolf a mutt leaving the mutilated bodies on Pack territory and bringing the police to their doorstepReturning to Stonehaven Elena finds herself fitting into old patterns without fear of exposure or judgement She still yearns to be human or at least to fit in in the human world but the situation is becoming threatening and her Pack brothers are losing their lives and the enemy wants herWhile the Prologue was necessary in setting up the main character and narrator Elena and it worked well written in present tense gives it that timeless uality I found it a bit boring and was worried I wouldn t be able to get through the book It wasn t long before I was completely riveted thoughIt comes down to Elena herself I think She s tough she s bitchy at times she s smart yet she has this aloof lonely uality that adds a touch of vulnerability and really made me feel for her without being told to The way she describes her past and how she dealt with it the way she over thinks her way through the world of humans concentrating and always thinking what would a human do Even though she used to be human she s not any Then there s her relationship with Clay which is what really drives the whole story Clay is an interesting character with at least three noticeable sides cold killer eager childlike boy with a wealth of feeling and borderline genius He s moody but predictable dangerous and lethal but oh so loving and loveable I just loved the fact that he wasn t easy to sum up that he was complicated More than that though the plot was exciting and even though after the prologue the rest of the book is written in past tense it still has that now feeling where the narrator Elena isn t giving hints as to what happened later but narrates as if she has no idea either That gives the story a great deal of suspense and tensionFor a debut novel this is a bloody good novel The writing uality is very high the character development is wonderful the plot is absorbing never boring and the moments of humour are very adult and speak to a level of intelligence that most popular fiction aims below It s an intelligent mature book very hard to put down and I m very keen to read the second book featuring Elena Stolen

Made her one too She has no choice but to join him at Stonehaven the upstate New York home of an elite pack of werewolvesIn 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 furr. A lot of authors tend to rely on supernatural abilities to make their fantasy and paranormal characters appealing to us foolish mortals who seek our escapes amongst their pages But Kelley Armstrong s werewolves in Bitten must rely on grit and personality alone because aside from having the ability to Change their shape they don t have any bizarre powers They aren t immortal they can be killed just as easily as any other non supernatural creature and it doesn t take a silver bullet to do it they could be gored by a deer hit by a truck or even strangled or have their throats slit by a human psychopath The abilities Armstrong s werewolves were granted were surprisingly believable even without that total suspension of reality that is reuired to read a book about werewolves or vampires or the Fey They were stronger than the average human able to run harder longer bench press and do pushups And they could heal faster but healing wasn t an instantaneous process it still reuired rest and time And even though there was a slight psychic connection between the alpha and his pack it was no eerie than the close bond between a set of twins or best girlfriends or a married couple so in tune to each other that they freuently find themselves dialing the phone to call the other at the exact same time It was Armstrong s ability to subtly draw you into the werewolves world that sold me hook line and sinker Like so many others who read urban fantasy and paranormal romance werewolves have not been my favorite characters Vampires yes Other fantastical beasts erm okay but only if there s a vampire somewhere in the book But werewolves Eh Pass Fortunately the high ratings this book has received practically forced me into giving this book a shot And frankly I loved itElena Michaels is one of the most intriguing heroines I ve encountered in uite some time She is the only female werewolf in existence and in the history of the Pack She was raised human and after losing her parents in a car crash was in and out of foster homes for her entire young life She suffered the unwanted attentions of her foster fathers and grew up wanting nothing than to have that normal human life a good career a caring husband a homeBut when she was bitten by a werewolf during college everything changed and her dreams for a normal life were ripped away from her because suddenly she was faced with violent urges a ravenous appetite and the need to periodically change form and run as a wolf through the night Obviously the latter is hard to do in a big city like Toronto but after gaining some control over her other half Elena tries to make it work She takes a job as a journalist with the newspaper has a wonderful human boyfriend named Phillip who is kind and considerate and buys her flowers and she uietly appeases the werewolf inside her by sneaking in between meals at street vendors so her live in human boyfriend doesn t notice her above average appetite and she sneaks out of the apartment at 2 am to stalk and scare local security guards a sad excuse for an all out deer hunt but she makes do But then she receives an urgent message from Jeremy the Pack leader and Elena can t ignore it her Pack is in danger Elena leaves Toronto and flies to a remote area in upstate New York where her Pack is headuartered And there she finds Clay just as she left him waiting for her still in love with her Like Elena Clay is also a dark tortured hero And the relationship Armstrong weaves for the two is both passionate and painful and oh so wonderful and the fact that the relationship was second to the urban fantasy plot of an all out werewolf battle for territory didn t make it any less satisfying No spoilers here so I won t say anything else except that I highly highly recommend

Well it is 100% an adult book It has graphic scenes sexual and bloody and probably shouldn’t be read by a fifteen year old I was tired of reading the high school euivale
