To be honest, I was a little worried when beginning to read Bitten by Kelley Armstrong. Not only is it a very long series but it was also classified under the Horror section at the bookstore. With my marks being sent to universities within the next couple of months, if I commit to another series, especially a horror series, I will never get any homework done! Much to my surprise, I didn’t find this novel scary at all and it personally didn’t fit my definition of horror – which is a good thing since I get scared easily.
When I first started reading, I was a little confused because so many people were introduced at once. I had a bit of trouble remembering who was who. However, once the story began to move at a faster pace, I was able to differentiate between the different characters and began to enjoy the story. Lately I have noticed that I enjoy stories focused around werewolves, fallen angels, Nephilim and characters of that sort and so I really enjoyed reading this story.
Usually I get bored if a novel has too much description and not enough dialogue. However, with Bitten, I found that all of the description was needed and was really what made this a good story. I loved the idea behind the story and the ending. Although cliffhangers are good at times, I am very happy with how this ended and would have been disappointed had it ended any differently. The ending was perfect!
For the time being, I will not be reading the rest of the series because I simply do not have the time to commit to 14 other books but I will definitely be continuing the Otherworld series at some point soon (hopefully sooner than later)!
