5.0 out of 5 stars Must read! July 5 2005
By Saya
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was never a fan of horror or the supernatural genre. Kelley Armstrong changed all that. As I was doing my usual browsing in the store, not really having a particular book in mind, I picked this up because I'd heard of Kelley Armstrong and reading the back it sounded intriguing. I figured if I bought it I could read it anytime the mood struck. Well, as I walked around with the book in hand getting ready to buy it two people stopped me in the store (complete strangers) and told me how amazing the book was! That's never happened to me before. So I bought it, let it sit on my bookshelf for a couple of weeks and finally got around to reading it. From the first page I was hooked! I mean I've tried reading Anne Rice and she bores me to tears, but this was AMAZING! As soon as I finished it I ordered all of Armstrong's books on amazon and cannot wait to start reading her other books. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes the supernatural genre, chick lit, mysteries, action and just plain fun reads! I read the book in 2 days, unfortunately having to go to work in between...don't you hate it when work interupts a good story?! Definate must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid read, worth the time and money March 27 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Coming into this from a Laurell K. Hamilton link, I was looking for something to round out my order to get free shipping. I thought supporting a Canadian author would be both virtuous and potentially rewarding. I was right to take a chance on this one.
Ms. Armstrong doesn't heat up the sheets like "Anita Blake", but neither do her characters get weighed down in maudlin self-pity for hundred of pages. Both attributes work to the advantage of this comfortably large read. The plot isn't complicated, but it makes sense and extends throughout the book. The relationship between the female lead and her blond-haired lover is traditionally angst-filled in the best style of romance novels. Just enough time is spent on fleshing out the personalities involved, allowing enough unanswered to merit further writing while filling in enough blanks to make the characters make sense. The world presented is interesting and a step different from many others in the genre. I could wish for a stronger female lead, but I see the potential for growth which makes her, and this author, worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it Aug. 4 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and also the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, I was looking for something in the supernatural category. I seen this book, the reviews were pretty good and I noticed that the author was canadian. So, I bought it. I didn't think it would live up to the reviews, but it definitely did.

The basic story line, is that the main character, a twenty something year old woman, was bitten and thus became a werewolf. She is the only known werewolf woman, which makes her pretty special in werewolf terms. However, she is desperate to live a "normal" life and wants to keep the werewolf side of her hidden and as little a part of her life as possible. She is drawn back into the werewolf world because someone is killing off her pack members. In the process of finding the killer, she starts to question where she truly belongs.

Its a great story, well written and I would certainly recommend it. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic beginning to a great series! Jan. 25 2010
By J. Scully TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved Bitten, by Kelley Armstrong. As a big fan of supernatural series, I'm always on the lookout for a new series with well-developed characters and interesting plots, and Bitten did not disappoint! Based on a young woman who has been turned into a werewolf, but really just wants to live a normal life, Bitten has all the components necessary for a solid start to an exciting series. As an added bonus, the author is Canadian and parts of the story are set in my home province, so I liked being able to visualize places described in the book.

The story starts out slowly as we get to know Elena, who has a pretty good life even if it may be lacking in excitement, but things pick up when she is summoned back 'home' to help with a family crisis. From there the story quickly builds, while alternating seamlessly between scenes of action and suspense and those of character development. The author is diligent about making her Stonehaven werewolves live realistically within the rules of our human society, and doesn't ignore the fact that any odd behavior would raise questions among those outside the werewolf community, ensuring that the story is very believable even though it's set in an unrealistic world.

Even though it's a fairly long novel, Bitten never feels weighed down by excruciatingly detailed battle scenes, or minutely described surroundings as is sometimes the case with fantasy novels, but is instead comprised of ample back-story and character development. The heroine Elena is a well-rounded character who has flaws and weaknesses, as well as strength and heart. There are really no other female characters in Bitten save a few brief appearances at the beginning of the novel, but I didn't feel that it hurt the story at all.
