Bitten  - Kelley Armstrong Bitten is the introductory novel to Armstrong's vivid and intriguing Women of the Otherworld series. The novel introduces the reader both to Elena, the world's only female werewolf, and the mythology of Armstrong's invented universe. Witches, half-demons with inventive powers, ghosts, necromancers- - the series has it all and none of it is cliche or boring. This was the first of any book I had read by this author, and I can say I was not disappointed in the least.Sharp writing, taut dialogue and a plot that moves along briskly, ensnaring you further into the story, into this world that seems so real and vibrant. Elena is a strong character, one who is not afraid to fight for what she wants, be it freedom or just independence from a life she did not choose. An excellent beginning novel that sets the tone for the rest of this fun series.More of my reviews here: http://bibliophileanonymous.blogspot.com/
