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!

First I loved that it was set in CANADA! Or parts of it were. So yay for that! Also please read all the way through before you think oh she hated it because I didn’t.

I felt there was just too much detail about everything that didn’t really pertain to the story. I got a little hung up on that, felt like it was droning on too much and I would find myself drifting off in my mind.

Elena Michaels, was bitten by her the love of her life. She was very hurt and holds one heck of a grudge to the point she had to move on with her life. So she moves to Toronto, Ontario and starts to build a “human” life. She has a live in boyfriend Philip who she loves but has to make changes to her everyday life so he won’t get suspicious.

“Philip wooed me with all the patience of someone trying to coax a half-wild animal into the house and, like many a stray, I found myself domesticated before I thought to resist.” - Elena

Clayton Danvers, I found followed his instinct and when his wolf bite Elena it was because he knew she would survive the change to be his. He is very loyal even after everything she puts him through. His job in the pack as far as I can tell is to protect his family, his pack and yes he can be brutal but if it keeps them safe then he will do it. But he still keeps the gentle part of him and I think that’s why I liked him so much.

“You forget, darling. I am the local psychopath.” - Clay

I feel like he is going to be paying penance for the rest of his life, is 11 years not enough? Elena isn’t ready to give up the grudge yet she seems to have forgiven the rest of them. Including Jeremy the pack master, who locked her in the cell to protect her and them from her.

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.

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.
