Kelley Armstrong lives in Ontario with her husband and two children.
Fans of Armstrong's fabulous "Women of the Otherworld" series will be delighted to see the long-awaited return of Elena Michaels, the world's only female werewolf. We first fell in love with Elena in the 2001 series debut Bitten, and she was the heroine of two other titles in the series (Stolen and Broken). This time, while chasing a runaway werewolf to Alaska, Elena and husband Clay encounter rogue werewolves and mysterious mammoth creatures that have them running for their lives. But Elena, always a strong female protagonist, has no intention of backing down, especially when her crazy, able-bodied mate is by her side. Armstrong remains at the top of her game with nonstop action and interesting new characters. Verdict While the violence and sexual content may bother some readers, this book is still highly recommended for all fans of paranormal fiction.

The gripping 10th installment of Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series returns to one of her most popular werewolves, Elena Michaels (last seen in 2006's Broken). While chasing a gullible Aussie werewolf to warn him about two rogue werewolves who are trying to frame him for half-eating two Pittsburgh humans, Elena and her mate, fellow Pack enforcer and anthropologist Clayton "Clay" Danvers, follow his trail to Anchorage. Armstrong conveys the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness while the couple investigate more crime scenes featuring more mutilated human corpses. Elena makes a great Alpha-style leader as she holds her own against male beasts and solves the well-crafted mystery. New readers may be baffled by Pack politics, but fans will find this a solid entry in Armstrong's popular series. (Oct.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Like Stephen King, . . . Armstrong not only writes interesting page-turners, she has also achieved that unlikely goal, what all writers strive for: a genre of her own. . . . This is not The Call of the Wild; it's Nora Roberts meets The Sopranos by way of Henry David Thoreau. -- THE WALRUS
