National bestselling author Sharon Shinn presents a passionate, heart-wrenching story of secrets and the lengths we’ll go to, to protect those we love...

Melanie Landon and her half-sister share a unique bond. For her entire life, Melanie has hidden the fact that Ann is a shape-shifter. The never-ending deception is a heavy weight to bear, but Melanie is determined to keep Ann’s secret and protect her from a world that simply wouldn’t understand.

For months, Melanie hasn’t seen or heard from Ann, in either of her forms. When a man shows up saying he’s there about her sister, Melanie fears the worst. But Brody Westerbrook doesn’t have information about Ann—he’s in search of it.

A freelance writer, Brody intends to include Ann in a book he’s writing about the existence of shape-shifters. While Melanie is immediately drawn to the stranger on her doorstep, she denies his claims, knowing that trusting him isn’t an option.

But when Ann finally appears looking thin and sick, Melanie realizes exposure is the least of their worries. Protecting her sister has always been such an enormous part of Melanie’s life, but as Ann’s health rapidly deteriorates, Melanie must come to grips with the fact that saving her may mean letting go…


Kelley Armstrong's debut novel--which does "much the same for werewolves as Anne Rice did for vampires" ("Rocky Mountain News")--is now available in mass market paperback. Thirty-year-old Elena Michaels comes to terms with her feral appetites as the world's only living female werewolf.

This a great introduction to some of the endearing, & endlessly intriguing characters of Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. Elena, the only female werewolf in the world, is a strong, compelling protagonist. We journey with her as she at first tries to run from her new life, but ultimately hast to confront it and choose whether to embrace it, or keep running. She, and the rest of the characters feel like real people, who just happen to be werewolves. The universe that Kelley Armstrong creates with this first book is believable, & addicting. Though, in my opinion, this is the weakest of the Otherworld books, it is still a great read. The story only gets better as you read the rest of the series. I highly recommend you start with Bitten. It will guide you into this new world, & prepare you for the large collection of eccentric super natural beings you will continue to meet in the rest of the Otherworld series.

Kelley Armstrong began my all time favorite series with this book. The characters are strong yet imperfect; the story is woven tightly with an intricate balance between morals and justice. By the end you need to know more about this world and all who inhabit it. You are not disappointed as the author gives you the pleasure of their stories from all different points of view throughout the series which is still a part of this readers world today. Elena the main character in "Bitten" becomes a central character again later in the series, however you still know her whereabouts and life's doings throughout the books.

A most excellent author and a tremendous read!
