Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong

Frostbitten is Kelley Armstrong's latest book in her Women of the Otherworld series. In Frostbitten, we get to see Elena and Clay again (yay - they are my favorites!). We met some new characters that I wonder if we'll see in further books, and got brief glimpses of previous characters from some of ther other books.

There's a lot going on here - The book begins with Elena tracking down a mutt (non-pack werewolf) trying to save his life. The problem is the mutt thinks Elena and Clay are trying to kill him for crimes he didn't commit. The chase ends up in Alaska, where some murders are suspiciously werewolfy (is that a word?). Elena and Clay have to track down these mutts, find former pack mates (one of whom has a surprise) and deal with an issue from Elena's past that comes front and center and could affect her ability to stay alive.

I really enjoyed this book. Elena and Clay make a good team, but Elena is plenty capable of kicking ass all by herself. Her ability to see the whole picture and figure out a plan for survival is one of the things I like about her character. Her love for her family and her pack is another and those two things were in abundance throughout this book.


  1. I love Clay and Elena :D So I do wanna read this one one day too

  2. I haven't read this series by Kelley Armstrong although I've read a lot of good things including your review.

    I'm a little daunted though by the total number of books in this series. I'm one of those neurotic readers that has to read a series in order even if it's only loosely-tied. Maybe one day when I don't have so many books in my TBR, I can give this series a go.

    Thanks for the review and recommendation!

    ;) VFG

  3. I think I've read 1 of Kelly Armstrong's book, for the life of me I can't remember. What book do you think I should start with?

  4. A surprise for you in your inbox ;)

  5. I loved this book *so* much! I appreciated that Armstrong dipped into Elena's past, and addressed some issues that have been bugging fans for some time now.
    The down-side is that it will be a long wait before Armstrong writes another Elena/Clay Otherworld book :(
