I actually got around to reading this when I did a "blind" any book on the Kindle selection and basically opened it up and started reading. You know you have those books that have been gathering dust and passed over for the newest selections, those books you know are popular but haven't gotten around to reading? This is like that. Open it and just start reading.

Paranormal "Wolves and Shifters" pretty straight forward. The heroine is called back home to help with an emergency situation after leaving the pack to live in the city and "play human". After telling her live in, almost fiance that she is leaving to be with a sick family member, she drags her feet back home and tries to say that 'its' only temporary", meanwhile her wolf's chosen mate that she both hates and loves in turns is doing his best to change her mind. He can't understand why she wants to live in the city and hide the fact that she is a wolf. She tries to rationalize her decision but finds that it gets harder everyday hiding her true nature. ( )

A Main Character That Frustrated Me But Good Plot

I thought that this book was OK. It would have earned more stars if I hadn't hated the heroine so much. I only enjoy stories where the main female character is intelligent, resilient, resourceful and displays plenty of gumption; Elena fell way short in my view. She was too much like an adolescent in her world view, though process and actions. She ran away instead of facing her fears as she had done (apparently) when she'd been a child, she blamed one person for all of the "bad things" in her life instead of taking personal responsibility like an adult, she claimed to love her boyfriend but continually showed in her thoughts and actions that she clearly didn't and

Yes she realised some of her gung-ho mistakes as she made them and admitted her self-delusion but it was right at the end, the final few pages, which was too little too late to change my opinion of her.

I liked the other characters, I thought the differences between Pack and Mutts was a little "good or evil" clichéd but like that a couple of the Mutt characters were more complex. I really liked Clay; my kind of Alpha main character. I may read the next book in this series as I thought the paranormal world Ms Armstrong has created is interesting but I won't be rushing out to buy it yet. ( )

I read several other books in this series revolving around the other narrators before I decided to give Elena's story a try (especially since she has the lion's share of the books). I was predisposed to liking it! And it was going pretty well until Clay became a major character and Elena's little love triangle became a subplot. I am so out of patience for handsome, possible sociopathic jerks that the otherwise-smart female leads can't help but swoon for anyway.

Elena's an asshole to her boyfriend, and never really got called out on that, from what I can recall-- at least not in a way that I thought would match her lying-cheating-ignoring behavior. She also fails at deflecting Clay's advances, though to be fair, Clay completely fails at accepting "no."

Clay is an asshole to everyone, including to his his lady love Elena, who, despite being a streetwise, wary woman, is both still in love with him and ultimately re-establishes a relationship with him (in a stupid, horrible way: see, the cheating and lying). A later book in the series even lampshades Clay's abusive-stalker behavior, just to giggle and shrug it off as 'sigh, something to put up with to be with him.' Yeah, okay. And of course, the whole reason Elena is a werewolf in the first place is because Clay, sensing Jeremy's disapproval and wanting to force him to allow Clay to 'keep' Elena, bites her (without her approval nor understanding)...which had every probability of killing her painfully.

Just...ugh. The plot was largely forgettable, or maybe I was just too annoyed with the lead pairing, which completely killed this book for me. If those sorts of relationships get your goat, don't make this book your opening foray into Women of the Otherworld. It's entirely possible to keep up with the overarching plot while skipping the Elena books and following other (better) heroines. ( )

Could not get into this at all. So cardboard and cliche. ( )

Bitten is the first in The Women of the Otherworld series, a group of books that follows strong women narrators as they deal with all the problems involved in being part of a hidden paranormal subculture in a contemporary society. This book is narrated by Elena, the only female werewolf, as she tries to blend her humanity with the wilder nature of the wolf. Elena had been a part of the Pack until about a year before Bitten begins, at which point she decided that she wanted to be just a normal human again, and live a life as close to the one she had planned before she’d been turned into a werewolf. The story follows Elena’s attempts at maintaining a “normal” life with her human boyfriend as she is reunited with her Pack and sometime lover during the Pack’s search for some troublesome mutts. The search turns into a hunt, complete with murder, kidnapping, and romps in the forest.

Bitten is very fast-paced, and yet leaves room for character development. The characters are very believable, with even the adversaries fleshed out in detail. Armstrong’s strong narrative voice, combined with a fresh take on an old legend, make this book a must-read. I would suggest this book for mature audiences, due to sexual content and some violence, though I didn’t find the violence to be exceedingly graphic. ( )
