An erotically charged, addictive thriller from the future queen of suspense.

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.

Read from the Book

I HAVE TO. I''ve been fighting it all night. I''m going to lose. My battle is as futile as a woman feeling the first pangs of labor and deciding it''s an inconvenient time to give birth. Nature wins out. It always does. It''s nearly two a.m., too late for this foolishness and I need my sleep. Four nights spent cramming to meet a deadline have left me exhausted. It doesn''t matter. Patches of skin behind my knees and elbows have been tingling and now begin to burn. My heart beats so fast I have to gulp air. I clench my eyes shut, willing the sensations to stop but they don''t. Philip is sleeping beside me. He''s another reason why I shouldn''t leave, sneaking out in the middle of the night again and returning with a torrent of lame excuses. He''s working late tomorrow. If I can just wait one more day. My temples begin to throb. The burning sensation in my skin spreads down my arms and legs. The rage forms a tight ball in my gut and threatens to explode. I''ve got to get out of here-I don''t have a lot of time left. Philip doesn''t stir when I slip from the bed. There''s a pile of clothing tucked underneath my dresser so I won''t risk the squeaks and groans of opening drawers and closets. I pick up my keys, clasping my fist around them so they don''t jangle, ease open the door, and creep into the hallway. Everything''s quiet. The lights seem dimmed, as if overpowered by the emptiness. When I push the elevator button, it creaks out a complaint at being disturbed at so ungodly an

From the Jacket

"[T]his debut novel from a Canadian writer proves that solid storytelling and confident craftsmanship can rejuvenate one of the hoariest of all horror clichés. … Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice's sophisticated refurbishings of the vampire story." -- Publishers Weekly

". . . it's as smooth as cream all the way, sure to gain fans." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[An] impressive debut thriller. . . . Kelley Armstrong is very good on the sheer exhilaration of shape-changing, of running on four feet through forests, suburban greenery and urban back alleys." -- Amazon UK

"[I]t's terrific. I'm a sucker for this kind of novel anyway, and the heroine is the most appealing I have come across in ages. It's clever, quirky, hip and funny, skating between genres with style and grace. More please!" -- Joanne Harris

'There is nothing overtly gothic about this fast-paced, sexy thriller and its model contemporary heroine -- it's just that she's a werewolf who is trying to make a go of things among humans. -- Bookseller (UK)

"A hair-raising story for the she-wolf in us all." -- Shannon Olson, author of Welcome to My Planet: Where English Is Sometimes Spoken
