Publisher's Summary

"I've got to get out of here - I don't have a lot of time left.

"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.

What the Critics Say

"Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice's sophisticated refurbishings of the vampire story." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Good, entertaining story"

    This first book in the Women of the Otherworld series had me hooked quickly. Elena is enjoyable as a strong, but conflicted main character. She can kick butt when needed but also has enough emotional vulnerability to give her depth and make her likeable. I am looking forward to listening to more of this series.

    Story
    "Werewolf-Strong heroine saves the day."
    If you could sum up Bitten in three words, what would they be?

    Shewolf saves day


    What other book might you compare Bitten to and why?

    Twilight's Lea Clearwater meets serial killer


    Who was the most memorable character of Bitten and why?

    Clayton and Elana have a relationship that off-&-on-again that stands the trials put before it.
    Clayton is memorable as the less than civilized 2nd in command and Elana as out of place were-heroine who wishes she were still human.


    Any additional comments?

    I kept hoping for a love interest for Jeremy.

    Story
    "Elena runs the males in circles"

    This book was slow in the opening. After the first chapter however, itwas one of the best books I've heard in a long time! I jumped through the series following the books Elena stars in. All are great but, this is the best! Men of the Otherworld is also a good book in the series as it explains Clay and Jeremy. (Mostly Clay.)

    "Meh!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. I bought this book because I had bought The Gathering and really enjoyed it. I thought there was far too much whine in this story, and I was bored with it rather quick.


    What could Kelley Armstrong have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Trashed it, and started over.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A story line that didn't bore me.

    Tell us about yourself! I love to read. I read two to three books a week. My favorite authors are Kim Harrison and Stephenie Meyer.

    Story
    "I'm glad audible have Kelley Armstrong."
    Would you listen to Bitten again? Why?

    Yes I loved charter. The story line was great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bitten?

    I loved the charter Cay. He was so funny


    Have you listened to any of Aasne Vigesaa’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator was great. She was the best. In the other books the narrator is different.

    Story
    "A nice surprise"

    I want to begin by saying that I HATE werewolf stories. I loathe them. The one and only reason that I listened to this book is because Aasne Vigesaa is my all-time favorite reader and she doesn't narrate very many books. I ran out of options and so I decided to give this one a try, but only because of my loyalty to Aasne.

    That being said, turns out I love this particular author's style. This is an amazing story with great characters. So even though I said I would never fall into the werewolf trend, here I stand. Knowing that this is the first of a series, and knowing that as soon as I am finished writing this review I will buy the next book, even though Aasne doesn't narrate it. I am officially hooked.

    "Great book!!!"

    What's really cool is I've listened to this book before. I have decided to listen to the book again and they have also made a TV series out of the story. Love the narrator Aasne Vigesaa, she always does an awesome job! Aasne Vigesaa is the best narrator out of the series. I wish they had her on every one of the books the other narrators seem to ruin it.
