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

Right from the first page, Frostbitten is filled with action, intrigue and excitement, and of course... a little bit of romance. (What else would you expect from a book featuring Elena and Clay??) I don't want to give any of the juicy plot away so I'll stop there, but I'm quite sure that fans of the Women of the Otherworld series will love Frostbitten, while fans of supernatural fiction in general, could enjoy it as a great standalone novel as well. Don't miss Frostbitten!
Elena is out on her own, chasing down a werewolf while Clay is at the university teaching; and the time apart is driving them crazy... but only another day until the two of them can get back home to be with the kids and settle back in... Yeah right... They end up in Alaska freezing them selves surrounded by all sorts of strange beings and the supernatural. This book has more then the one problem that Clay and Elena have to overcome and figure out, and that includes with themselves! There is a lot of action i.e.; fighting, killing, and lovemaking... all the stuff we love about Kelly's Otherworld books. I read through this book so quickly, I just hate when it has to end! I will definitely be re-reading this series... Yet again!
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.
FROSTBITTEN (WOTO # 10) by Kelley Armstrong
FROSTBITTEN is the tenth full-length storyline in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series and reunites some of our favourite werewolves. Clay and Elena, with the eventual help of Antonio and Nick, are on the hunt for a couple of rogue werewolves who have been terrorizing a small Alaskan community leaving a trail of grizzly murders and missing women in their wake. As the representative for the American pack, Elena sets out to investigate the recent reports of mysterious wolf killings, but will discover that the kills are anything but natural. Leaving behind their twins with Jaime and Jeremy, Clay and Elena will have their hands full with a runaway young wolf, the Russian pack and several mutts hoping to make an impression as a new upstart pack to be feared.
Frostbitten is a storyline that uncovers a little known species of ancient shape-shifters known as the Wendigo that prefer to keep their identity a secret. The rogue mutts will force the quiet and reclusive species into the roll of protector when they discover the remains of a werewolf and the bodies of several young women. But when old memories and one-time pack members resurface from Clay’s past, Elena will find herself in the unenviable position as the bait to trap Clay and the others.
Frostbitten introduces us to several new werewolves including Noah, Reese and Morgan. Kelley will offer up a number of short stories involving the young werewolves, including the December 2012 release of Forbidden- a storyline featuring Morgan Walsh.Read more ›
"Frostbitten" is set against the mysterious and cold backdrop of the Alaskan wild. It is good to see Elena and Clay work and play as a team. Although their relationship is intoxicating and the sexual tension is at play in every chapter, Elena struggles with her past and tries to reconcile her fears and traumas with her potential role as Alpha and Clay grapples with his injuries and the notion that he may not be able to protect his Alpha and his mate.
Fans of Kelley Armstrong will love this book and will love immersing themselves in the chemistry of Elena and Clay. If you are new to the series, start with "Bitten".
