Frostbitten

by Kelley Armstrong

Random House of Canada | May 25, 2010 | Trade Paperback

Frostbitten is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong returns with the tenth installment of the Women of the Otherworld series.

The Alaskan wilderness is a harsh landscape in the best of conditions, but with a pack of rogue werewolves on the loose, it’s downright deadly.

Elena Michaels, the Pack’s chief enforcer, knows all too well the havoc “mutts” can wreak. When they hear of a series of gruesome maulings and murders outside Anchorage, she and her husband, Clay, journey to Alaska in the dead of winter in order to hunt down the dangerous werewolves. Trapped in this savage, untamed winter realm, she and Clay learn more about their own werewolf heritage than they bargained for, tapping a little more into the wild nature of the beast within. With Elena back in the starring role, this is the book Kelley Armstrong fans have been waiting for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Werewolves go to Alaska Full review at http://urbanfantasyland.wordpress.com FROSTBITTEN starts with a bang as Elena takes us through a fantastic chase scene as she tries to capture a young werewolf. He escapes to Alaska and she boards a plane, missing home, but still determined to get to the werewolf. Elena meets with her husband, Clay, on the plane in one of my favourite scenes in the book. I love big romantic gestures and this certainly fits. Clay's romantic side with Elena is a nice balance to his cruel and heartless demeanor as pack enforcer and Jeremy's bodyguard, and yet he is never controlling or over-protective. One of the things I love about the Elena-Clay relationship. The two arrive in Alaska, and it's non-stop adrenaline rush, action-packed hunt for the runaway werewolf and their missing friend. This story also looks at ancient werewolf mythology and the possibility of a bigfoot/yeti: the Inuit Wendigo. In this story, Elena has to deal with problems from her past, buried memories of child molestation, and future problems-- she's been named Jeremy's heir to the pack. One day Elena will be Alpha. Armstrong deftly incorporates both of these complications into the action of the story, making Elena's development very real, very believable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Great Otherworld Read Elena and Clay go to Alaska to try and help a mutt, and come across a group of human killing mutts. Now they must stop the threat to their Pack. But the mutts aren't the only thing in the woods... I've always been a fan of Kelley Armstrong's werewolves, so coming back to just them was a treat. This novel contains quite a bit of sex, even for Armstrong books, just for a heads up. There was a lot of action throughout the novel. It ended way too fast for my liking, but I forgave it since it was so action packed up to that point.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Read I have been hooked on Kelly Armstrong's books since the beginning and Frostbitten doesn't disappoint. With that being said, the other books were more intense. To say this is the best so far is not true. If you haven't read the other books featuring Elena Michael's the world's only female werewolf then do not pick this book up because you will get lost. I own 5 of her books and I didn't read 1 and missed her pregnancy, now I have to buy that other book to find out what happened. Unlike her other books the author doesn't refresh on Elena's past enough for you to catch up on her life. That is the only reason I gave her 3 stars. The story is great and if you own the other books pick it up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It Was Okay I was not a fan of this installment of the series, there were too many times where Clay & Elena allowed the “bad guys” to get away from them. Honestly, the story could have been wrapped up a lot sooner if they’d have just stopped showing off & got the job done. I felt the book really was just Elena trying to get through her prior issues to show that Jeremy had made the right choice in naming her his successor for Pack Leader. It’s the first book since Elena had the twins & aside from one or two scenes she has hardly any interaction with them, more time is spent running around Alaska trying to catch the people that keep getting away. The bright side was Hope & a new species that has popped up, but if this is the way Clay & Elena are going to interact since the birth of the twins, I’d rather not read anymore about them. Which is sad, because I loved them in earlier books. I never thought I wouldn’t like a Kelley Armstrong book, but this one was a disappointment.

Read from the Book

MESSAGE You can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped. And you really can’t help someone who runs the moment you get within shouting distance, making a beeline for the nearest train, plane or bus terminal, destination anywhere as long as it takes him hundreds of miles from you. As I chased Reese Williams through the streets of Pittsburgh–the third city in two days–I had to admit I was starting to take this rejection personally. I don’t usually have this problem with guys. Sure, at five foot ten, I’m a little taller than some like. My build is a little more athletic than most like. I don’t always put as much care into my appearance as I should, usually forgoing makeup, tying my hair back with an elastic and favoring jeans and T-shirts. But I’m a blue-eyed blonde, so men usually decide that they can overlook my deficiencies and not run screaming the other way. Sure, if they found out I was a werewolf, I could understand a little screaming and running. But Reese had no such excuse. He was a werewolf himself, and considering I’m the only known female of our species, when guys like him meet me, they’re usually the ones doing the chasing . . . at least until they realize that’s not such a good idea if they’d like to keep all their body parts intact. I’d lost Reese when he’d cut through a throng of rowdy Penguins fans heading off to a game. I’d tried following him through the drunk

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Kelley Armstrong:

“Don’t go giving all the credit to the recent Twilight phenomenon…. Long before American author Stephenie Meyer came on the scene — four years before to be precise — Canadian fantasy novelist Kelley Armstrong began paving the way with Women of the Underworld….”
— Winnipeg Free Press

“Like Stephen King, . . . Armstrong not only writes interesting page-turners, she has also achieved that unlikely goal, what all writers strive for: a genre of her own. . . . This is not The Call of the Wild; it’s Nora Roberts meets The Sopranos by way of Henry David Thoreau.”
— The Walrus


Praise for Men of the Otherworld:

“The intriguing tales…unfold so fluidly that they read almost like a novel, providing a good introduction to new readers and a real treat for fans.”
— Publisher’s Weekly

“Highly recommended; essential for any fan of the series.”
— Library Journal
