"Philip doesn't stir when I slip from the bed. There's a pile of clothing tucked underneath my dresser so I won't have to risk the squeaks and groans of opening drawers and closets. I pick up my keys, clasping my fist around them so they don't jangle, ease open the door and creep into the hallway. My legs now itch as well as hurt and I curl my toes to see if the itching stops. It doesn't. It's too late to drive to a safe place now - the itching has crystallized into a sharp burn. I stride out onto the streets, looking for a quiet place to Change."
Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey.
Elena Michaels is a werewolf.
The man who made her one has been left behind, but his dark legacy has not. And though Elena struggles to maintain the normal life she's worked so hard to create, she cannot resist the call of the elite pack of werewolves from her past. Her feral instincts will lead her back to them and into a desperate war for survival that will test her own understanding of who, and what, she is.

"Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice's sophisticated refurbishings of the vampire story." (Publishers Weekly)
I am easily amused!
This was my introduction to Kelley Armstrong and I am a fan. The book started out slow and I thought, Oh no, this sounds like a lame and predictable plot, but after giving it some time it quickly turned into a thrilling story with lots of action and wonderful characters. I will definitley listen to or read the rest of the series. Most likely I will choose to read them because I found the narrator of the book flat and undimensional. She distracted me from the story a few times. Her voice for Clayton's character was great but the rest left a lot to be desired especially Elena's. I would have given the book a 4 star rating but narration was a 2 star.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
The book is okay, but the award for the dumbest female goes to this chick. Yelana.
This chick is unbelievable.
Overall the book is okay but this female jeez! Can she make up her mind?
I like any books that hook you within the first chapter. If a love story is involved even better.
This book was the grestest. I am now Kelley Armstrong's biggest fan. I am in love with Clay now. The three main characters have the best chemistry. I laughed, I cried and I wanted more. Aasne Vigesaa's voice was so becoming. She did a wondeful job with Clay's southern accent.
Fantastic book. Exciting and never boring. I have to admit I am a vampire, witch, faery kind of girl. But Bitten has pulled me into the the werewolf world too.
I usually don't read weir wolf novels, but I caught this one on sale and decided to give it a try. Elena is the only female weir wolf and is one of three weir wolves out of 35 who were not born into the pack. Armstrong tells Elena's story in the first person, which gives the book an intimate feel. Bitten is loaded with romance, conflicting emotions, danger, and suspense. The narrator does a good job distinguishing amongst the different characters making Armstrong's Bitten an easy and enjoyable read. Although I thought it was slightly too long, I'm glad I took a chance and will probably read more Armstrong in the future.
I picked up this Audible book on a recommendation from a friend - we both love the Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse series. Unfortunately this will not tide me over until the next book comes out, the characters aren't very likable, it's not well written and I didn't care for the strong Canadian accent of the narrator. What a disappointment!
I've been looking for a good series of books to keep me entertained in the car... I have to listen in chunks so it can't be too hard to follow.. this book fit the bill.. fast paced.. good character development.. good story line...
