The Alaskan wilderness is a harsh landscape in the best of conditions, but with a pack of rogue werewolves on the loose, it's downright deadly.

Elena Michaels, the Pack's chief enforcer, knows all too well the havoc "mutts" can wreak. When they hear of a series of gruesome maulings and murders outside Anchorage, she and her husband, Clay, journey to Alaska in the dead of winter in order to hunt down the dangerous werewolves.

Trapped in this savage, untamed winter realm, she and Clay learn more about their own werewolf heritage than they bargained for, tapping a little more into the wild nature of the beast within.

    "Another great one...but"

    The book was a great installment - finally back to Elaina and Clay! Elaina kicks butt in this one and we even get to meet some previously mentioned, but long lost pack brothers. The only problem was the reader...ugh...she had really bad voices. For example: Jeremy sounded like an 80 year old pervert - previously he was much sexier. Oh well, the story was excellent and prepares us for more from Elaina as she ascends to the head of the pack!

    "A Alaskan Home Run -- Must Read"

    This novel more than any others has a theme and premise that you will connect with. In this book we learn about the abuse Elena endured during her childhood, how she dealt with it and how she has become a stronger better person. We also get a full understanding of her growth with Clay. I have to applaud Armstrong for delivering a clean, concise theme without coming off preachy. It was believable and uplifting. This book was by far and away her best and, for me, made the series work while.

    Unlike other series, by book ten you might be questioning the resolve to continue. I highly recommend that you listen to this book. If you've liked the series so far, this one will keep you listening even after you have arrived at you destination. Jen Taylor does her usual excellent job and delivers great performance.

    I am anxious to listen to the next and hope Armstrong continues to belt them out!

    "Good book but....."

    I love Kelley Armstrong...but she got a little lost in this book. The reader changed the accents of the characters that had been well set from previous reads, that was very dissapointing. The writer ruined some of the characters that are previously written as heroes, making them seem week and needy? The worst part was the reader...big bad wolves in this book are not believeable because seriously she gave them mickey mouse has a sore throat voices? I dont understand how the publisher could ever let this happen, let alone the writer. Very irritating.

    "Hot book dispite the name"

    I am a big fan of Kelley Armstrong. I read her first book reluctantly because I don't get into fantasy, but her characters are well developed and you end up feeling like they are close friends. This is audio is not different. I found myself on the edge of my seat and getting lost in this story.

    "A Howling good book!"

    Eliana and Clay are the focus of this book. As parents their lives have changed and so has their relationship, for the better. KA takes you to the woods of Alaska, a paradise for wolves but not so when they come upon some renegade werewolves "mutts" and meet a new tribe of the Otherworld. Eliana has become, much to her reluctance, the Alpha elect, finding herself making decisions and directions for the pack. She is the woman in charge! The dialogue between Clay and Eliana is as enjoyable as the descriptions of their romps in the woods and the hotel. It is a great addition to this collection. I would recommend reading the books in order to fully understand the characters.

    The negative side of the audio experience was the reader. Her male voices sounded like middle school boys, and that is not how you imagine the characters. The voices sounded young and inexperienced to the point of distraction. Very disappointing audio recording!

    "Best one yet"

    All i have to say is that of all the other of Elena and Clay stories this one topped them. this one brings them more to life. I love it when they go wolf and just have fun. so yeah i give this a five star. It is my favorite of the two yet. i hope she continues with these two, i love their interactions with one another not to mention their team work. a must read!

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "Nice story."

    Clay and Elena have never been my favorite couple. I was a little nervous about reading this book, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Story
    "Short, fast and the big huge creatures are scary!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Hum... Though it is short, it is a full story. I was dissatisfied with how quickly it ended... gee, now I am seeing I must have liked it more than I was prepared to admit here. Okay, I might recommend it to someone on sale. I like a longer listen.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The characters are always interesting in Ms. Armstrong's books but the Shifters are new and I'm going to wait for some more development of these folks in future books - lots of potential. Least interesting? Hum. The length.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jen Taylor?

    YES. I can understand what she is saying. Being Hard of Hearing the narrator's quality of speech is really important to me.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, I'd wait for the next in the series. This was a complete story, but I felt that more character development (Shifters) and more info about the countryside in Alaska would have been better.


    Any additional comments?

    nope

    Story
    "I was hanging on Jen Taylor's every word"

    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 and am ecstatic to be revisiting them but on the other, I know that this is the last installment in this series that features Elena as the narrator and it wasn’t nearly long enough for my liking. Compared to her other novels, this one felt more like a novella than a full length book; the plot is rather basic and the tone is much lighter than its predecessors. I did enjoy the descriptiveness of Armstrong’s writing in this installment as well as the playfulness that Alaska brought out in Clay and Elena but I couldn’t help but feel cheated. I wanted more.

    Elena has come full circle as a character and Frostbitten really brings that to the forefront by sharing bits of her past, present and future. This installment was kind of a mini-recap of Michael’s life as a werewolf because it showcases aspects of her relationship with Clay, experiences as a mother and future role as alpha. It also revisits her life as a foster child by dredging up painful memories and putting her in situations that force her to confront her traumatic upbringing. These are the parts where Jen Taylor’s narration really shined; I could hear Elena’s distress in her voice, the pregnant pauses and contemplative quietness mirrored Armstrong’s writing beautifully. 

    Clay and Elena’s relationship is another element that has come a long way since Bitten and I enjoyed seeing them finally getting to experience their HEA. There’s an open line of communication between them which is something that they’ve struggled with in the past. Their dialogues about Michael’s struggles with alphahood and Clay’s inability to be the pack enforcer he once was were some of my favourite parts. It has been a long upward battle but I think that they’ve finally found their “happy place” and that’s more important to me than the overall ending of the Women of the Otherworld series. 

    I probably won’t be re-reading this series a third time because Armstrong’s other characters didn’t succeed in capturing me quite like her werewolves have. The only books that I’ll never grow tired of are the ones that feature Clay and Elena, and Frostbitten is one of them.
