Frostbitten (Women of the Otherworld)
Title:  Frostbitten
Author:  Kelley Armstrong
Publisher:  Bantam Books
Publication Date:  July 2010
Format:  Paperback, 414 pages
Age Group:  Adult
Series:  Women of the Otherworld #10
Elena, the only known female werewolf, and her mate, Clay, follow a mutt into the wilds of Alaska.  While they are there they also check on some former Pack mates and look into a series of suspicious deaths.  All of these seemingly unconnected events lead to larger problems, possibly more than Clay and Elena can take on without backup.  Elena is also dealing with some personal issues concerning her past and her future.
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.
Frostbitten is in our personal library and no one had any expectation of a review.
