Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
So, before I read the book I watched the show, I know that I did that backwards, in my defense I wanted to veg out on a show on Netflix and this looked mildly interesting. Anyway, the show was great until the last season when it kinda tied everything up but left me with questions. Naturally I wanted to wait a minute before reading the book because I didn’t want to be comparing the differences the whole book.
When I started reading the book I did note some similarities which I enjoyed, but almost halfway through the book morphed into something else. And I loved it.
The story takes place in Toronto and upstate New York. It’s about a young woman, the only female werewolf, trying to assimilate in the human world because that’s what she wants. Meanwhile back with her pack things are going down. They have mutts, non pack wolves, trying to killing people in their territory and they need Elena’s, the main character, help. She’s the one who can piece together who the mutts are, because she’s an excellent tracker, and figure out why they’re doing it.
She hates the idea of going back but she feels obligated because it was an order from her Alpha. Long story short, she goes back, doesn’t trust her instincts, fights a love triangle (when it’s so clear who she should be with), kicks mutt ass, and saves her man. The book was definitely better.
