For Elena Michaels, being the world’s only female werewolf has its advantages, such as having her pick of the Otherworld’s most desirable males. And she couldn’t have picked a more dangerously sexy and undyingly loyal mate than Clayton Danvers. But now their bond will be put to the ultimate test. A werewolf more wolf than human and more unnatural than supernatural—a creatu...more

Let's face it, the werewolf stories are the best books in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. Yes, I enjoyed the rest of the installments, but there is something extremely appealing about the physical world of weres. It's just so much more fun to read about hand-to-hand fights, cracked bones, and torn-out throats. How can spell-casting, raising the dead, and (give me a break!) sensing chaos possibly compete with that?

In this novel Elena and Clay travel to Alaska to have a talk wi...more

Frostbitten is a nice addition to the Women of the Otherworld series after two not so great books.

In it Elena cements her feelings for Clay by admitting that she missed him whilst he was away, she confronts her past fears head on, and learns that she is strong enough if not quite ready to become Alpha. Clay is as wonderful as ever both protecting Elena and giving her the freedom of her independence. The rest of the pack also make an appearance if only towards the end. We meet two former pack me...more

Great introduction to urban fantasy

This is the first of Kelley Armstrong's books that I have read. Obviously, that means that it is my first from the Otherworld series too.

Frostbitten was recommended to me by friends, despite being in a different genre to anything that I have read in my past. I really didn't think that I would enjoy it too much, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. I would therefore thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has not tried this genre before.

There is a strong plot...more

Okay, okay, I was going to write a nice balanced review and all that, but let me start with my complaint.

What is it with bloody scent?


I get that Elena being the only female werewolf means that all the other male werewolves are gunning for her, either because of her or to get to Clay. If her smell, however, is an equalivent of an in heat signal that opens a host of questions. If Elena is "in heat" in wolf form than wouldn't that turn on Clay? Wouldn't it make it difficult for Elena to exist any w...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who loves UF, especially werewolves.
Clayton and Elena, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways:

1. You are ridiculously fun. Whether you're tossing each other around in the snow while in wolf form, or contemplating how difficult it would be to maneuver in the back of your SUV, you fill me with D-E-L-I-G-H-T.

2. You are the perfect example of partnership. I know you got off to a bit of a rough start (with the biting and the changing), but you weathered that storm spectacularly (even if it did take 10(ish) years to do it), and you a...more

Elena Michaels is my favourite Women of the Otherworld narrator and listening to her poignant point of view via audio this second time around made me love Frostbitten even more. Jen Taylor had me hanging on her every word because she reads this story as though it were her own. I only have one complaint with this novel and it’s that it was over far too soon.

Reading this book a second time was bitter sweet for me because on the one hand, I love Kelley Armstrong’s wolves an...more

You CAN go home again!

While Kelley Armstrong has never traveled too far afield from the werewolf clan that started the Women of the Otherworld series in Bittenthere have been many characters and storylines added since then. But, coming back to Elena and Clay was like a GOOD trip back to the place you called home. You can see how they've grown and changed over the years, but some part of them is still the same couple that I remember. And, even beyond the relationship aspect of the book, the plot...more

Wow! Frostbitten, the 10th novel in the Women of the Otherworld series gets my vote for best novel of the series so far! Frostbitten is told from Elena’s point of view, taking us back to our original (and my personal favourite) narrator. The story is set predominantly in Alaska, and features Elena and Clay almost exclusively. We do get to touch base with some of our other much-loved Werewolves, and we also get to meet some fantastic new characters that I hope we’ll be seeing more of in future st...more

My beloved Clay and Elena are back and they're doing what they do best... tracking mutts. The story begins with Elena trying to catch up with a young Aussie wolf named Reese, who is being set up to take the fall for some man-eaters. (Armstrong set up a backstory for Reese in the short story "Chivalrous," but you don't have to read it to know what's going on.) She follows him to Alaska, where he is promptly attacked by mutts living there. Elena patches him up and faces the task of finding the mut...more

Frostbitten - Best of Clay and Elena so far - Great addition to Armstong's series

When the mutt Elena is chasing flees to Alaska, Pack enforcers werewolf Elena and her mate Clay are they are asked to do double duty and also check into some wolf mauling deaths in the frozen North - they suspect rogue 'weres' are behind the killings. As their search expands to include the mysterious disappearance of an old friend living the area, the pair is going to discover that that much is hidden in isolated A...more

I have to say that I seriously enjoyed this one. It was great to see that the Pack may be evolving.

Jeremy has officially asked Elena to become Alpha when he steps down. The way Elena and Clay discuss this and decide how to handle this while being mates was-for those two-surprisingly civil and mature. Their relationship really has come a long way. I love seeing them be open with each other. While they held back at some points, they always eventually discussed what was bothering them. I couldn't s...more

Yes!!!!! After a few duds, Armstrong has once again hit one out of the park by returning to her roots, characters Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers. Thank vati! While Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series was not my first introduction to her writing, books 1 Bitten and 2Stolen were certainly my favorite books written by her, I think, maybe, I don’t know. Anyway, my love was no doubt due to the fabby and oh so enticing couple of Elena and Clayton. I had originally thought that anything writ...more

I love the feeling of starting a new Kelley Armstrong book, it feels so comfortable and snug with characters who are more like old friends rather than words on a page. Do I get too involved in novels? Maybe! In Frostbitten we meet up again with the ever gorgeous werewolf couple Elena and Clay who are a joy to read about – Kelley Armstrong does a good job capturing the playfulness, love and companionship of their long standing relationship. This time they are headed to Alaska on the heals of a mu...more

In "Frostbitten", Elena starts to come to terms with who she will be in the future; but in order to do that she has to face some deep-seated fears from here past. In a cold, unforgiving landscape that has some mysterious creatures running wild, Elena and her fierce husband Clay have to find out what is going on. And they have to stop it while coming across some nasty "mutts" in the process.
This is s a great read, it brings Elena full circle, and then helps her rise to a new level. One of the b...more

Frostbitten brings us back to the beginning by focusing on the werewolves Elena and Clay. It seems like Kelley Armstrong learned from her past mistakes and returned to what works for the stories. This is a strong story where the werewolves are in Alaska and end up hunting mutts and meeting potential pack members, unlike Broken. We also are not jumping from pov to pov like in Persona Demons. Hopefully the rest of the series fallows suit.

Elena's back! I fell in love with the WotO in Bitten, and Elena in particular. Everything about that book seemed so REAL, so emotional. Clay was so very hot but I was rooting for Elena to stick to her guns, knowing that would make their eventual coming together much stronger. She did and it did and the series moved on to introduce other characters I also loved. But I always wanted Ms. Armstrong to go back to the beginning . . .

With Frostbitten, I somewhat got my wish. Elena and Clay now have tw...more

Elena and Clay head off to Alaska in Frostbitten to track and aid a young mutt in danger. While there they find something far beyond the supernatural they're accustomed to. Frostbitten takes the reader deep into shapeshifter mythology, while also providing a look at both Elena and Clay's pasts.

Frostbitten offers much in the way of action and passion. Elena and Clay away from the twins and their day-to-day lives allows for room to explore their relationship as well as how they've both changed fro...more

leventh book in the Otherworld series; tenth book on the women. The focus of this story is back on werewolves Elena and Clay.

Elena is chasing a mutt (werewolf not in the pack) across the country trying to save his life while he runs from her believing he'll be killed. The chase takes her to Alaska where a friend of Jeremy's appears to be missing, some men have been killed by wolves and three women have disappeared.

Clay struggles with a new generation of werewolves who no longer quake over his re...more

Another great book for Kelley Armstrong in the Otherworld series.

Elena & Clay are the main characters & the main setting is Alaska. Elena is on the search for a mutt (Reese) to warn him of his ex-mutt mates plans to kill him after they have tried to frame him as a man-eater. Reese rus from Elena thinking that she is going to kill him for the human killings. Reese runs to Alaska where Elena follows & Clay joins her.

In Alaska all hell breaks loose. Reese gets hurt & finds out all h...more

Within this series, whenever we get to a book set around the wolf pack it feels like coming home, and this instalment was made a doubly sweet homecoming by it being such a good instalment (my favourite so far, actually).

Tracking down some man-eating mutts Elena and Clay find themselves in Alaska, which turns out to be home to more than just werewolves. On top of all this, Elena is struggling to come to terms with and live up to Jeremy’s plan to name her as Alpha when he steps down.

I adore Elena...more

Yay. I love any book with Elena and Clay in it when it comes to this series. I just wish I got to see more of their twins.

As many of you know, Elena and Clay books are my favorite and this one is no exception. Frostbitten really tied up some loose ends for me, especially with the couple's relationship. We know that Elena and Clay don't always communicate well and even act like children sometimes, but since they had their twins, I se...more

Recommends it for: Everyone!
This is one of my favourites of the series and it is my favourite of the pack's books! Elena just grows so much in this book, she's already made leaps and bounds in the previous books but in this one she really has to overcome her past and fears left from her trauma's in foster care. She also finds out from the start of the book about Jeremy's plans for her and has to work through that news.
I love how Clay set her fears about becoming alpha to rest and how they worked through her worries. I als...more

This tenth book in the Otherworld series is a revisiting of the character who started it all: Elena Michaels. It's also the last book to be narrated by Elena as the final three books in the series will be from Savannah's POV.
So (save for a few shorts) this is a goodbye to Elena, Clay and The Pack. And a great parting it was.

In Frostbitten Elena and Clay travel to Alaska to look for misbehaving mutts. Meanwhile Elena is struggling with issues from her past and she's facing new daunting prospect...more

There's a nit that's bugging me. I know Elena lives in the U.S. now, but when she was telling the editor at the Anchorage paper that she worked for Canadian Press why didn't she describe the missing women as First Nations? Why did she call them Native Canadians? It's a difference in how Americans and Canadians think of the world, and I wish Armstrong, a Canadian, had told/ explained it to her American readership.

Elena and Clay come to Alaska chasing a mutt, Reese, a werewolf who’s not part of th...more

I love this series and Elena and Clay are by far my favorites. This book was jam packed with lots of action, seeing all of the pack memebers, learning about the others in the world, and the pack changing.

With this book you can tell both Elena and Clay have grown up and accepted who they are and their lives, both what happened in the past and how their lives were now. Choices made in the past have lead them to the strong positions they are in, but as they have grown up so has the world around the...more

I like some of Kelley Armstrong's books, but this unfortunately wasn't one of them. Sometimes when reading her books, I'll see instantly that she's decided something will happen, no matter what. A chase in this book was a good example. I knew very quickly two things. First, Elena wasn't getting help anytime soon even though it should have been there. Second, Elena wasn't going to escape her pursuer.

Spoiler alert! This is a very minor spoiler, but I didn't want to catch anyone by surprise.

Smart, scary, funny and incredibly emotional, this is yet another amazing book by Kelley Armstrong. In this installment we see the supernatural world expanding to include other species and unknown magic, such as the Shifters (werewolf type creatures), a werewolf who decided to take a 'gap year/ experiment' type holiday in wolf form rather than go backpacking and creepy lights that like to lead unwitting people into ice rivers.

Elena made for a wonderful narrator yet again, and it was interesting...more

It's strange comparing this series to other urban fantasy series. Most urban fantasy series have one point of view character through out the whole series. This series jumps characters. And even though Elena is the single character with the most books, there is still way too much of the riff raff for my personal tastes.

There is another way this series seems to differ from other urban fantasy series. Time seems to pass more quickly. In Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake books (which are up to #17)...more

In ‘Frostbitten’ Elena Michaels and her partner Clay Danvers travel to Alaska to catch up with a mutt. It is winter time.
In this novel, writer Kelley Armstrong –who lives in rural Ontario, Canada, with her family and far too many pets– brings back her werewolf characters and takes them to a harsh landscape of many legends and territory of the Ijiraat, where they can only survive because they are werewolves. They are the enforcers of the North American pack and make sure that non-pack werewolves...more

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. All efforts to make her produce "normal" stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked a...more
