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?

I like this set of characters, and this was a perfectly serviceable airplane book.

What's better than a series you can rely on to provide solid plots with intriguing twists spiced by the occasional sexy romps? All that with ongoing character development! I love seeing the growth Elena is making, and the way her relationship with Clay deepens and matures over time. I can't think of much to say without giving away too much to those familiar with the series. I doubt this is the best place for readers new to Women of the Otherworld to start, simply because they wouldn't get the full effect of the continuity, but they wouldn't be lost, either. I loved it!

My Summary: Elena and Clay just beginning to adapt to their new lives as parents when they're called to find a rogue Mutt and warn him of the dangers he faces by hanging around with known man-eating werewolves Liam and Ramon (I know my Darkest Powers people just gasped). Instead of a calm, peaceful encounter however, Clay and Elena are forced to chase the guy all the way to Alaska.Once they arrive, the couple realize they're dealing with a lot more than a rogue werewolf. There are reports of locals being killed in the woods by large wolf-like creatures, and when Elena is attacked by something in the forest, they decide they need to prolong their stay. On top of all that, problems from Elena's past have been re-surfacing, and she finds herself feeling weak just when survival depends on being strong.My Thoughts: Yet another awesome read from Kelley Armstrong! I swear, I don't think she's ever written a book that I wouldn't read and adore every minute of. Frostbitten was actually one of the first Women of the Otherworld books I bought, because I has just read Stolen and Bitten and knew I was eventually going to buy it anyway because I was already obsessed with the series (plus it was on sale - you can't top that!).In Frostbitten, you really see a lot of growth in both Elena and Clay. They're dealing with quite a lot in this book - emotionally and situation-wise - and the way they handle it makes them seem real and easy to relate to. I also love the fact that the characters acknowledge that they are getting older - it gets a bit tiring reading about characters who are eternally perfect (you know who I mean...).Also, I loved the windigo reference! I recently read a novel that centered very heavily on that myth, and I loved that Kelley was able to include it into the book!Final Thoughts: Another wonderful novel from Kelley Armstrong. I definitely recommend her series to fans of paranormal YA who are looking for something in the adult section (there's definitely some hot scenes in there :P).

Frostbitten is the tenth book in Armstrong’s Otherworld fantasy series about supernatural women, and the fourth that follows the story of Elena Michaels, the only female werewolf.Elena, now thirty-nine and the mother of a set of three-year-old twins, heads for Alaska to accomplish multiple tasks: first, she is trying to warn the werewolf Reese Williams about some nasty werewolves who want to do him harm; second, she intends to track rumors of men being killed by wolves; and finally, there is an old werewolf friend of Jeremy’s (her Alpha Pack leader), who is now in Alaska, and who Jeremy is anxious to contact.Clay, Elena’s mate, meets up with her, and they set out to find the other werewolves when they are astonished by the scent of a huge creature that seems to be a cross between a bear and a wolf. But even this “beast” isn’t as horrible as the werewolf mutts they two are tracking. Elena just barely escapes rape and death multiple times.She isn’t acting herself however; she has received a letter from a former foster father who abused her and who now wants “forgiveness,” and she finds out Jeremy has his eye on her to be the next Alpha of the Pack. She’s worried if she can handle it all, and if it will affect her relationship with Clay.Evaluation: Love this series for so many reasons! I love that Elena and Clay are a happy, loving couple who still enjoy wild sex after twenty years together. I love that they have “parenting” problems like anyone else. I love that Armstrong uses the animal world to illuminate relationships in the human world. It’s all good!

Kelley Armstrong is a progeny when it comes to supernatural writing. Her books leave you breathless with their racy romances, the constant struggles, and the exciting stories. She does all of this effortlessly and you have no choice but to plummet without stumbling straight into her world. She has created such a strong presence in all of her characters that everything about them makes them seem real! You get so caught up in their stories that you feel you are a part of them. I cannot say enough good things about Kelley!

It is no secret that I absolutely love Kelley Armstong's Women of the Otherworld series and Frostbitten reinforces that love completely. Elena Michaels is the female werewolf who started the whole series and it is so nice to return to her as the central character. Taking Clay and Elena away from the Pack and their children was a great way to keep the focus on how they interact as a couple. I found out a lot more about Elena's past in this book and that gave great insight into her motives, methods, and pressure points.There is a lot going on in this book to tie together the many different threads that Clay and Elena must follow. Armstrong keeps things moving quickly but also provides down time to think things through, talk things over, and plan their next moves. The dialogue between Clay and Elena easily moves between playful, serious, and sexy. Elena shows her tough side when dealing with other werewolves but lets her guard down a bit with Clay. Armstrong writes such full characters along with the great story lines.One thing that I really enjoy about this series is that the focus shifts to different characters for different books. This means that it isn't critical to read the books in order as long as you keep the books with the same main characters together. This was definitely to my advantage because I skipped over Frostbitten to read the hardcover of Waking the Witch because Savannah is one of my favorite characters. I thought the Savannah books might be my favorites of this series but I think Frostbitten actually beat Waking the Witch for me! I am looking forward to returning to Savannah in Spell Bound but now I really want more Elena. I hope we see more of what the Pack looks like in the future.

Yet another installment in the life of werewolf Elena Michaels. Elena and her husband Clay follow a 'mutt' (a werewolf with no Pack) to Alaska. While there they find that a rogue slavic pack is attempting to encroach on their territory, killing off the official North American Pack, and setting up an illegal gun running trade. They also find something that may be key to understanding the origins of all werewolves.

Elena and Clay are werewolves and are sent to Alaska to track down a fleeing young rogue werewolf and investigate some potential wolf killings. Things become very complicated very quickly with wolves from Russia and something else lurking in the woods.

This novel goes back to the werewolf pack and focuses on Clay and Elena. While the story was fast-paced and full of action, I found myself missing some of the other supernaturals in Armstrong's world. The pack dynamic is getting interesting, though.

Elena and Clay make a little relationship progress while investigating some odd occurrences in Alaska. Fairly good entry into the Otherworld series.
