Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
So I pulled this book off the shelf because the television series based on the book has started and I was advised to read the book before watching the show. I am happy to say that I followed that wonderful advice and have enjoyed the series very much after having read this book.
Enjoyed the story line and the main characters. I have really enjoyed watching the story come to life on the television show.
I like Elena, but kept wanting to hit her over the head and say, "You have all of that now!! What you are so frantically try to have in Toronto, is already at Stonehaven".
Looking forward to reading more about Elena and Clay as well as seeing how the television series plays out.
