This month’s mini-challenge was a no-brainer for me:
Create a post describing which of the first four books of the WOTO reading challenge that you enjoyed most so far!
My favourite novels in this series are the ones where Elena Michaels is the narrator which means: Bitten, Stolen, Broken and Frostbitten. I’ve only read two out of the four so far for this challenge and the book without equal is…
The first, the original, the one that started it all:
An erotically charged, addictive thriller from the future queen of suspense.
Living in Toronto for a year, Elena is leading the normal life she has always dreamed of, including a stable job as a journalist and a nice apartment shared with her boyfriend. As the lone female werewolf in existence, only her secret midnight prowls and her occasional inhuman cravings set her apart. Just one year ago, life was very different. Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away. Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape.
But now the Pack has called Elena home to help them fight an alliance of renegade werewolves who are bent on exposing and annihilating the Pack. And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her “family,” she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel. She has made her choice. Trouble is, she’s increasingly uncertain if it’s the right one.
An erotically charged thriller, Bitten will awaken the voracious appetite of every reader, as the age-old battle between man and beast, between human and inhuman forces, comes to a head in one small town and within one woman’s body.
Earlier this year I gave the audiobook a try and it was phenomenal. The first book is the most primal out of the bunch. Armstrong’s writing is outstanding; I love the way that she describes every sight, touch, smell and instinct. If you’ve ever fantasized about what it would be like to be a wolf, you can’t come any closer than this novel. I’ll never get sick of this book and will continue to re-read it again and again. See my review for the full scoop.
