Elena Michaels is a wanted woman. She hasn't done anything wrong. Well, not recently anyway. But 10 years ago her lover turned her into a werewolf: the only female werewolf in the world in fact.
And now, just as she's coming to terms with it all, a group of scientists learns of her existence. They're hunting her down, and Elena is about to run straight into their trap. But they haven't reckoned on Elena's adoptive family, her pack, who will stop at nothing to get her back. They haven't reckoned on Elena herself, either, and that's a very big mistake...
My ThoughtsI really enjoyed this book. Saying that though, this book had a completely different feeling to it than book one, Bitten. That's because this is the first book that was written with the intention of being a series. That doesn't lessen the enjoyment of the book though. The plot is different to a lot of paranormal's that I've read (although Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville books did have a similar plot line. They were written after this though). It had a nice pace that didn't leave me feeling disappointed.
My favourite character is Elena. She's feisty and intelligent and refuses to be what others want her to be. Unlike most other leading ladies, she doesn't need to hang on to her man as though her life depends on it. Which is lucky really, it makes the book a lot better.
I think that this is one of my favourite paranormal books of the year. The only down side was I got a bit confused at the end. That was entirely my own fault though and is no reflection of the quality of the book.
My Rating4 stars - A really good, entertaining novel. I thoroughly recommend it fans of adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy.
A Final NoteThis book is for an adult audience and contains sex, violence and swearing. Definitely not for teenagers.
