'Makes Buffy look fluffy' Daily Express

'It's terrific. The heroine is the most appealing I have come across in ages. It's clever, quirky, hip and funny, skating between genres with style and grace. More please!' - Joanne Harris, author of Chocolate

'I've been fighting it all night. I'm going to lose ... Nature wins out. It always does.'

Elena Michaels didn't know that her lover Clay was a werewolf until he bit her, changing her life forever. Betrayed and furious, she cannot accept her transformation, and wants nothing to do with her Pack - a charismatic group of fellow werewolves who say they want to help.
When a series of brutal murders threatens the Pack - and Clay - Elena is forced to make an impossible choice. Abandon the only people who truly understand her new nature, or help them to save the lover who ruined her life, and who still wants her back at any cost.

The brilliant international bestseller reissued in the new Kelley Armstrong cover style.

Review quote

A hair-raising story for the she-wolf in us all -- SHANNON OLSON, author of WELCOME TO MY PLANET Armstrong's true achievement is her depiction of werewolf nature in believably human context ...the sensuality of Elena's transformations and the viciousness of her kills mesh perfectly with her tough personality. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY A witty, suspenseful, and well-paced tale...[Bitten] will both thrill and absorb you. -- HOUSTON CHRONICLE Frisky... Tells a rather sweet love story, and suggests that being a wolf may be more comfortable for a strong, smart woman than being human. -- THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Our customer reviews

I read this book last year and it soon became one of my favourites! It was one of the first books i've read that involved werewolves that actually caught my attention. Most werewolf novels have something to do with having "mates" and transforming into half-human half-wolf creatures. But this book was a little different. The way Kelley Armstrong describes the transformation from human into wolf is amazing. This book was full of problem solving, action and romance and i loved every bit. The story based on a female werewolf called Elena who has tried to live a normal human life, but gets called back to her pack to help solve murders. It was a great take on the fantasy genre and i loved every bit! RECOMMENDED TO MATURE AUDIENCES - 18+show more
