Read in January, 2002

the first entry in Kelley Armstrong's "women of the otherworld" series is still her strongest, and it's a really good read. this story of a woman unwillingly changed into a werewolf avoids any mention of mysticism or ancient curses and makes the idea that werewolf packs are hidden in the world quite believable. supporting characters are individuals instead of generic stock copies of each other, which is good considering this is basically a tale of human(ish) relationships.

shame about the covers, though, since all the paperback ones have this generic "nighttime" or "supernatural" look, while the 1st ed hardback had one of the best covers in recent memory (a faceless woman in a 'flaming june' colored dress, limbs twisted at strange angles...a blonde tail subtly peeking from below the hemline).
