Back to the Beginning, with Werewolves!
By Kelley Armstrong
Bantam Books, $9.99. 381 pages
Kelley Armstrong’s Frostbitten is a companion to her very popular “Women of the Underworld” series that she finished last year. In Frostbitten she gives us another story of Elena Michaels, the only female werewolf, who she first introduced in “Bitten,” the first book in the series. This book is a summing up; an author looking back on how far her characters have come since they were first dreamed up. Despite the nostalgic appeal for Armstrong’s long time readers, she hasn’t lost any of her pacing, and the story of Elena and Clay tracking down rogue werewolves in the Alaskan wilderness will keep new readers entertained as well.
This book has everything that readers have come to expect from Armstrong— a compelling story, good pacing, strong female characters, and an interesting love story the isn’t overly graphic. Readers who follow Armstrong online may have already read parts of this story available as an extra on her website, but despite a previous read, this was still a book I couldn’t put down.
