Overview

Smart, sexy, supernatural—the men and women of the Otherworld live and love, fight and die, among us. Unseen and unsuspected, this realm of witches, ghosts, and werewolves is now threatened with exposure by a brutal series of bizarre murders that has left even the supernatural world baffled—and cold with terror….

Being the world’s only female werewolf has its advantages, such as having her pick of the Otherworld’s most desirable males. And Elena Michaels couldn’t have picked a more dangerously sexy and undyingly loyal mate than Clayton Danvers. Now their bond will be put to the ultimate test as they follow a bloody trail of gruesome slayings deep into Alaska’s frozen wilderness.

There’s nothing the werewolf community dislikes more than calling attention to itself. So when a pair of rogue man-eaters begins hunting humans, it’s up to Elena and Clayton to track down the predators. But any illusions their task would be simple are quickly dispelled. For even in werewolf terms, there’s something very disturbing taking place in the dark Alaskan forests. A werewolf more wolf than human and more unnatural than supernatural is on the hunt—a creature whose origins seem to spring from ancient legends of the shape-shifting Wendigo.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Clayton and Elena find themselves confronting painful ghosts from their pasts—and an issue neither of them is eager to discuss. For one of them has been chosen to become the new Pack leader, and as every wolf knows, there can be only one Alpha. They’ve always been equals in everything. Now, when their survival depends more than ever on perfect teamwork, will instinct allow one of them to lead…and the other to follow?

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Arctic region grows colder and more eerie when you're attempting to track down rogue werewolves who abandon half-eaten human prey. Fortunately, reader favorites Elena Michaels (Broken; Stolen) and Clayton Danvers are on the case, keeping adrenaline high and libidos percolating. A werewolf pack worth following; now in mass-market paperback.
From the Publisher
 
“Highly recommended . . . Armstrong remains at the top of her game with nonstop action and interesting new characters.”—Library Journal
 
“Wonderful . . . difficult to put down and harder to forget.”—Night Owl Romance
 
“Armstrong writes page-turning prose.”—Booklist
Publishers Weekly
The gripping 10th installment of Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series returns to one of her most popular werewolves, Elena Michaels (last seen in 2006's Broken). While chasing a gullible Aussie werewolf to warn him about two rogue werewolves who are trying to frame him for half-eating two Pittsburgh humans, Elena and her mate, fellow Pack enforcer and anthropologist Clayton “Clay” Danvers, follow his trail to Anchorage. Armstrong conveys the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness while the couple investigate more crime scenes featuring more mutilated human corpses. Elena makes a great Alpha-style leader as she holds her own against male beasts and solves the well-crafted mystery. New readers may be baffled by Pack politics, but fans will find this a solid entry in Armstrong's popular series. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Fans of Armstrong's fabulous "Women of the Otherworld" series will be delighted to see the long-awaited return of Elena Michaels, the world's only female werewolf. We first fell in love with Elena in the 2001 series debut Bitten, and she was the heroine of two other titles in the series (Stolen and Broken). This time, while chasing a runaway werewolf to Alaska, Elena and husband Clay encounter rogue werewolves and mysterious mammoth creatures that have them running for their lives. But Elena, always a strong female protagonist, has no intention of backing down, especially when her crazy, able-bodied mate is by her side. Armstrong remains at the top of her game with nonstop action and interesting new characters. VERDICT While the violence and sexual content may bother some readers, this book is still highly recommended for all fans of paranormal fiction.

Message

YOU CAN'T HELP someone who doesn't want to be helped. And you really can't help someone who runs the moment you get within shouting distance, making a beeline for the nearest train, plane or bus terminal, destination anywhere as long as it takes him hundreds of miles from you.

As I chased Reese Williams through the streets of Pittsburgh—the third city in two days—I had to admit I was starting to take this rejection personally. I don't usually have this problem with guys. Sure, at five foot ten, I'm a little taller than some like. My build is a little more athletic than most like. I don't always put as much care into my appearance as I should, usually forgoing makeup, tying my hair back with an elastic and favoring jeans and T-shirts. But I'm a blue-eyed blonde, so men usually decide that they can overlook my deficiencies and not run screaming the other way.

Sure, if they found out I was a werewolf, I could understand a little screaming and running. But Reese had no such excuse. He was a werewolf himself, and considering I'm the only known female of our species, when guys like him meet me, they're usually the ones doing the chasing... at least until they realize that's not such a good idea if they'd like to keep all their body parts intact.

I'd lost Reese when he'd cut through a throng of rowdy Penguins fans heading off to a game. I'd tried following him through the drunken mob, but the Pack frowns on me cold-cocking humans for grabbing my ass, so after enduring a few unimaginative sexual suggestions, I retreated and waited for them to move on.

By then Reese's trail was overlaid and interwoven with a score of human ones. And the air here already stunk, the city core entering construction season, the stink of machinery and diesel almost overwhelming the smell of the Ohio River a half mile over. There was no way I was picking up Reese's trail at this intersection. Not without changing into a wolf in downtown Pittsburgh... another thing the Pack frowns on.

When I caught up with him two blocks later, he was being sucked in by the glow of a Starbucks sign, presumably hoping for a populated place to rest. When he saw that all the seats inside were empty, he veered across the road.

Reese ran into one of those office-drone oases typical of big cities, where they carve out a store-size chunk of land and add interlocking brick, foliage and random pieces of art in hopes of convincing workers to relax there, enjoy the scenery, listen to the symphony of squealing tires and blaring horns and imbibe a little smog with their lattes.

After a dozen strides, Reese was through the tiny park and veering again, this time to a sidewalk beside the lot. Headlights appeared, blinding me, then dipped down into an underground lot. Reese grabbed the barrier and vaulted into the lane. I raced over to see the automatic door below closing behind a van... with Reese running, hunched over, right behind it.

I did a vault of my own and ran down the incline, reaching the bottom, then dropping and rolling under the door just as it was about to close. I leapt to my feet and darted through the dimly lit garage, hiding behind the nearest post. Then I strained to hear footsteps. For almost a minute, the van engine rumbled on the far side of the garage. It quit with a shudder and a gasp. A door desperate for oil squeaked open, then slammed shut.

Hunched over, I hopscotched between the sparse parked cars. Ahead I could hear the van driver's heavy steps thudding as he walked the other way.

A door creaked and a distant rectangle of light appeared. The door hadn't even clicked shut when Reese darted out from his hiding space, his boots slapping the asphalt as he ran.

I kicked into high gear, no longer bothering to hide, but he was too close to the stairwell. I was almost at the closed door when it flew open again, and I narrowly missed barreling into a middle-aged man.

"Sorry," I said as I tried to brush past him. "I was just—"

"Running for the exit because you're afraid to walk through an underground lot at night?"

"Uh, yes."

"There are plenty of lots aboveground, miss. Much safer. Here, let me walk you up to your floor."

It was obvious there were only two ways I could get past this guy—let him play the gentleman or shove him out of the way. Clay would have done the latter—no question—and thrown in a snarl for good measure. But I haven't overcome my Canadian upbringing, which forbade being rude to anyone who hadn't done anything to deserve it.

So I let the guy escort me up the stairs, and thanked him at the top.

"I'm not saying you shouldn't park underground... " he began.

"I understa—"

"Hell, it's your right to park wherever you want. What you shouldn't do is need to be afraid. This will help."

He held out a paper-thin white rectangle, making me think they really had done a lot with personal alarms since I'd last seen one. But it was a business card.

"My wife runs Taser parties."

"Taser... ?"

"You know, like Tupperware parties. A bunch of women get together, have a good time, share some potluck and get a demonstration of the latest in personal security devices."

I searched his face for some sign that he was joking. He wasn't. I thanked him again and hurried out of the stairwell.

Reese's trail led out the front door. As I went after him, I realized I was still holding the card, which featured a cute little red Taser that I'm sure fit into a purse and accessorized very nicely, for women who carried purses or accessorized.

From Tupperware parties to lingerie parties to Taser parties. I shook my head and stuffed the card into my pocket. Right now, I actually wouldn't mind a Taser. It might be the only way to stop Reese. Of course, I'd need to get close enough to use it, which wasn't looking very likely.

THREE BLOCKS LATER, I finally caught up with Reese on a rooftop. He'd climbed up the fire escape, probably thinking I wouldn't follow.

When I swung over the top, he broke into a run, heading for the opposite side, boots sliding on the gravel. When I realized he wasn't going to veer at the last second, I threw on the brakes, gravel crunching as I skidded to a stop.

"Okay," I called. "I'm not coming any closer. I just want to talk to you."

He was close enough to the edge to make my heart race. He slowly pivoted to face me.

Reese Williams, twenty years old, and recently emigrated from Australia. With broad shoulders, sun-streaked wavy blond hair and the remnants of a tan, he looked like the kind of kid who should be leading tour groups into the outback, all smiles and corny jokes. Only he wasn't joking or smiling now.

"My name is Elena—" I began.

"I know who you are," he said. "But where is he?"

"Not here, obviously." I gestured around me. "In two days, you haven't caught a whiff of any werewolf except me, which should be a sure sign that Clay's not around."

"So you're alone?" The sarcasm in his voice made that a statement. I was the only female werewolf. Obviously, I needed protection, which must be why I'd taken refuge with the Pack and, for a mate, had chosen the Alpha's second-in-command—the baddest, craziest werewolf around.

"He's teaching," I said. "Georgia State University, this week."

His glower said he didn't appreciate my joke. I wasn't kidding—that bad and crazy werewolf also had a Ph.D. in anthropology and was currently lecturing at a symposium on cult worship in ancient Egypt. But there was no way Reese would believe that.

"Fine," I said. "You think he's been lurking in the shadows, out of sight and downwind for two days. Unobtrusive is one word that's never been applied to Clay but, sure, let's go with that theory. Unless he's learned to fly, though, the only way up is that ladder behind me, so you're going to see him coming. Now, let's take a minute and chat. The reason I've been chasing you for two days is that I want to talk to you about—"

"South Carolina."

"Right."

"I didn't kill those humans."

"I know."

He allowed himself two seconds of surprise, and in those two seconds, he looked like a kid on his first day away at college—lonely, confused and hoping he'd found someone to help. Then his face hardened again. He might be no older than a college student, but he wasn't that naive or that optimistic, not anymore.

I hurried on. "You emigrated last year and hooked up with a couple of morons named Liam Malloy and Ramon Santos. They promised to show you the ropes of werewolf life in America. Then the half-eaten bodies started showing up—"

"I didn't do it."

"No, they did, and they're blaming you for it. We know—"

He inched back toward the edge.

"Don't—" I began. "Just stop there. Better yet, take a step toward me."

"Am I making you nervous?"

I met his gaze. "Yes."

"A jumper would be a real mess to clean up, wouldn't it? Better to calm me down and get me into a nice stretch of forest for easy burial."

"That's not—" An exasperated sigh hissed through my teeth. "Fine. You're convinced I'm going to kill you. The only question, then, is—"

He stepped back... and plummeted.

I lunged so fast I nearly did a face-plant in the gravel, scrabbling to get to the edge, heart in my throat, cursing myself for being so careless, so flippant—

Then I saw the second roof, two stories below, and Reese running across it.

Clay would have taken a dramatic flying leap. I felt the urge, but reminded myself I was the mother of two and would turn forty in a few months. Even though I had the body of a bionic thirty-year-old, I had responsibilities to my family, to my Alpha and, most important right now, to this dumbass kid who'd get killed if I broke my ankle and couldn't warn him about Liam and Ramon.

So I crouched on the edge, checked my trajectory and jumped carefully. I landed on my feet and took off after Reese. I was barely on the second rooftop before he was off it. It was a three-story drop this time, which was a bit much even for a twenty-year-old werewolf. The thump of a hard landing and a gasp of pain confirmed that.

I picked up speed, hoping I'd see him huddled below, hurt and unable to run. But the pavement was empty, as was the parking lot beyond. I caught a flash of movement in a recessed doorway, where he crouched, hidden in the shadows, waiting to ambush me. Good thing I hadn't pulled a Clay and charged headlong after my prey.

I walked to the adjoining edge, lowered myself over, then dropped. Twin shocks of pain blasted through my legs as I hit the asphalt. I was going to pay for that in the morning. For now, I rubbed it out, then snuck to the corner of the building.

The wind shifted and I caught a whiff of Reese, his scent heavy with fear. It wasn't me he should be afraid of, though, but his old traveling buddies.

Liam and Ramon had killed three humans in South Carolina and set up Reese to take the fall. Now they were hoping to find and kill him before I got his side of the story.

How was I so sure of this?

Because they'd done it before. Five years ago they'd befriended a twenty-three-year-old immigrant werewolf named Yuli Etxeberria. When evidence of man-killing pointed to Etxeberria, Clay had wanted to swoop in and grab him. I'd held back. I'd been suspicious, but not suspicious enough. Liam killed Etxeberria and mailed us his hand, as if expecting a commendation for taking care of this "man- eater."

That wouldn't happen this time. I strode down the grassy strip between the building and the parking lot, as if I was scanning that lot, giving Reese the perfect ambush target.

When I reached the recessed doorway, I dove. Reese's shadow passed over me, pouncing and catching only air. I leapt up, grabbed the back of his jacket and threw him onto the grass.

He landed with a thud. He tried to roll out of it and bounce up swinging, but a twenty-year-old with a werewolf's strength and agility is like a twenty-year-old behind the wheel of a Lamborghini—all that power but not enough experience using it—and he fumbled the bounce back to his feet.
I tossed him face-first onto the grass again. This time he stayed where he landed.

"Where did we leave off?" I said. "Right. Liam and Ramon and their plot to end your existence."

"Kill me?" He slowly rose. "Why would they—?"

He charged, hoping to catch me off guard. I stepped aside and he smacked into the wall, then wheeled fast and came at me again. Again, I stepped aside, this time grabbing him and pitching him through the air.

As he hit the ground, he let out a stream of profanity.

I shook my head. "If I wanted to hurt you, I wouldn't be throwing you on the grass, would I?"

"Right, you're here to help me, after getting tipped off that I'm a man-eater. Do you really expect me to—"

He tried the dash-in-midsentence trick again, making a break for the alley. I tore after him. As I caught the back of his jacket, he spun and hit me with an upper cut that sent me sailing off my feet.

I kept my grip on his coat, and we both went down. I tried to scramble up, but he pinned me. It was then that his wolf brain kicked in. His pupils dilated, his breathing quickened, his erection pressed into my thigh, his wolf side telling him this wasn't a fight—it was foreplay, and damn, I smelled good.

He froze as the still-human part of his brain warned him that what the wolf wanted was a very bad idea. But his nostrils still flared, drinking in my scent.

I knew which side would win, and that's when things always got ugly.

So while he fought his inner battle, I heaved him off me.

"That's why I don't do hand-to-hand combat with mutts," I said.

He nodded as he got to his feet, rubbing his face briskly with his sleeve, gaze down, cheeks flaming.
He pinched his nose and shook his head, trying to clear my scent.

It took a smart kid to back off that fast. And Reese was smart—that was the problem. If he'd been a dumb lunk who'd keep trying to hump my leg, then he'd have believed me when I said I was here to rescue him. Instead, he saw all the ways it could be a trick.

"Liam and Ramon are after you," I said. "You haven't noticed because they aren't nearly as good at tracking as I am. Give them a few weeks to catch up and—"

He charged, switching to the dash-while-your-opponent-is-in-midspeech tactic. Again, I sidestepped. Only this time, he hooked the back of my knee. I stumbled, but came up swinging. Unfortunately, he was already ten feet away, running for the road.

I took off after him.

    Elena Michaels Returns Again

    I was so excited when I received the ARC for this book a few weeks ago. Now as exciting as ARCs are I normally don't get all giddy over them. What made this one so cool to receive, other than I love Kelley Armstrong, was the fact that I won it from the author herself. She was holding a Twitter contest and I was one of five winners of a signed ARC of her new novel.


    Here is the synopsis of the book:


    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 word comes of a series of humans apparently killed by wolves near Anchorage, Elena and Clay are sent to check things out. But they find more than they bargained for among the snow and trees of the savage Alaskan wilderness.


    Of all of Kelley Armstrong's characters Elena Michaels has to be my favorite so I tend to enjoy her books all the more. This book was no exception. It had everything I love and quite a bit more.


    The interaction between Elena and Clay and that way it has progressed throughout the series of books has been a joy to read. Their relationship in this books seems stronger and more adult (if that is the right word). They seem to have matured as individuals and as a couple. Maybe that's what having kids does for you, it has for me at least.


    I won't get into the plot specifics, because I want you to experience them for yourself, but I will say you will meet a new race of Others as well as potential new pack mates.


    If you are a fan of her work this new novel by Kelley Armstrong will not disappoint. If you are new to her books this is a good sample of her skill as a writer.

    FROSTBITTEN (WOTO # 10) by Kelley Armstrong FROSTBITTEN is the

    FROSTBITTEN (WOTO # 10) by Kelley Armstrong

    FROSTBITTEN is the tenth full-length storyline in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series and reunites some of our favourite werewolves. Clay and Elena, with the eventual help of Antonio and Nick, are on the hunt for a couple of rogue werewolves who have been terrorizing a small Alaskan community leaving a trail of grizzly murders and missing women in their wake. As the representative for the American pack, Elena sets out to investigate the recent reports of mysterious wolf killings, but will discover that the kills are anything but natural. Leaving behind their twins with Jaime and Jeremy, Clay and Elena will have their hands full with a runaway young wolf, the Russian pack and several mutts hoping to make an impression as a new upstart pack to be feared.

    Frostbitten is a storyline that uncovers a little known species of ancient shape-shifters known as the Wendigo that prefer to keep their identity a secret. The rogue mutts will force the quiet and reclusive species into the roll of protector when they discover the remains of a werewolf and the bodies of several young women. But when old memories and one-time pack members resurface from Clay’s past, Elena will find herself in the unenviable position as the bait to trap Clay and the others.

    Frostbitten introduces us to several new werewolves including Noah, Reese and Morgan. Kelley will offer up a number of short stories involving the young werewolves, including the December 2012 release of Forbidden- a storyline featuring Morgan Walsh. Nick will also become the surrogate father to a couple of reluctant newcomers to the pack, and the alpha elect for the American pack will be revealed-surprising no one but Elena, herself.

    Frostbitten is another wonderful and fascinating storyline in Kelley’s Women of the Otherworld series. With the introduction of three new werewolves Kelley offers up a world of possibilities for future storylines that will now, only be revealed in a series of novella and anthology type novels. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe(dot)com

    Keeps me coming back for more

    It was great being back with the pack and having them deal with mutts again. They lost two great pack wares in the first book. This books finds them picking up two, possibly three young male mutts to help rebuild their strenghts in numbers. Elena and Clay are at their best in this continuing story of their lives. Can't wait to see what Kelley has planned for them next. Nick could see what he was missing with Elena and Clay as mates and having twins in an earlier book. Later he decided settling down was for him in the near future. It's great to see him taking two of the young mutts with him to care for and educate in the ways of the pack. The shape shifters were an unexpected surprise, didn't see that coming.

    An Engrossing Read

    I love Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. The novels in the series usually are first person told by a female supernatural--but different ones generally in each book: witch, half-demon, necromancer, angel--and in this case, as in the first two books, Bitten and Stolen as well as Broken, it's Elena Michaels, the one and only female werewolf. I read and imprinted not on Bitten though, but the third book, Dime Store Magic, with Paige and Lucas. When I got to the first book, Bitten, I was rather disappointed they weren't there--and was less than taken with Clay, Elena's mate. In that very first book he's revealed to have made Elena a werewolf by biting her without her consent. I didn't *want* Elena to forgive him. Yet through the course of the different books, I have warmed to him, and I do like this development in their relationship--can Clay follow Elena's lead? Besides the romantic/relationship thread, as in the other books Armstrong serves up an intriguing mystery in a well-developed and imaginative supernatural world. Her books are the kind you open and step into another world entranced until you close it thinking, where did the time go?

    Interesting

    Kelly Armstrong's first book had me hooked and ever since then I hav been a devoted follower of Clay and Ellena. The exciting things that have happened through out all the books have all had me on edge of what would happen next. I was a little disppointed that the kid's were not involved as much in the book but I can't want to see if they are in the next. Armstrong has a great imagination and adds great new characters in everyone of her books. This book might not have had as much drama as the others but it was exciting to read.

    Highly recommended -- check out the entire series

    I love this entire series. Kelley Armstrong writes each book so they stand on their own, but together give you an amazing picture of life as a supernatural. You don't have to love vampires, werewolves and witches to love these books, they are about mysteries and good versus evil and romance. A little something for everyone.

    Frostbitten is the best book so far this year i have read. It really keeps you guessing and intoxicated in the happonings.

    Kelley Armstrong is a wonderful job on this book. I love the book and i couldn't put it down either.

    Great read!

    Once again Kelley Armstrong goes above and beyond. I can't get enough of Elaina, Clay and the pack. Loved it.

    One of my favorites

    This by far is one of my favorites, ofcourse C, E, J are easily my characters to read about. I felt that the book had twists in just the right spots and timed the book clutching moments perfectly. I was able to fly through this book in 2 days flat, I loved the plot and that she changed their location to help keep things fresh. I will say that I liked the original book cover with the blonde wolf/woman on the front, this new one is boring, doesn't tell a story or make someone who is "cover-shopping" want to stop and pick up this book to see what it's about. Food for thought publishing peeps, other than that I highly recommend this book. It's a huge step up from that total flop Living With The Dead, geeze now there was a disappointment!

    Loved it!

    This book was great all the way through. I hated having to put it down. I could have read the whole thing in one day it was so good. My favorite of the werewolf books.

    My Favorite So Far

    I loved this story! It is my favorite so far of the series. I'm really happy with the way Elena and Clay's relationship has grown. Now having the twins to raise it seems that they have really grown and are a finally a real team. I'm really pleased with the way things turned out. The story was very suspenseful and kept me on my toes. Great writing!!!

    I CAN'T WAIT

    Kelley Armstrong fell into my lap with a bunch of short stories I bought, after getting hooked on Kim Harrison's: Rachel Morgan series. Since then I have purchased all of Kelley's: Women of the Otherworld series and upon receiving the last 4 books of the series, noticed that Frostbitten would not be in production and mailed out until July 2010... With not all the books being available in Hard Cover, I'm not caring that I mess up my collection with the Hardcover available and since reading your reviews I just have to get this one.... Can't wait to read

    An excellent installment in this series.

    I've been a Kelley Armstrong fan for awhile now. I'm a huge fan of the werewolves and have been waiting for their return for quite some time.-I can tell you now I was not disappointed in this book. I couldn't put it down until a had finished it. Elena Michaels and her husband/mate Clayton Danvers are chasing down a young werewolf immigrant who is being set up for maneating. They follow his trail to Alaska where they all run into more mutts causing trouble and looking to start a fight. They also run into former pack members and meet some potential pack members. They also discover that werewolves aren't the only shapeshifters running around Alaska...

    Ok I had been anticipating this book, I couldn't wait for it to come out. After I finished reading it I swear it had become my new favorite! Kelley Armstrong is one of my many favorite authors and I can't wait to see if she will be adding a new addition to Women of the Otherworl Series!
