Publisher's Summary

"I've got to get out of here - I don't have a lot of time left."Philip doesn't stir when I slip from the bed. There's a pile of clothing tucked underneath my dresser so I won't have to risk the squeaks and groans of opening drawers and closets. I pick up my keys, clasping my fist around them so they don't jangle, ease open the door and creep into the hallway. My legs now itch as well as hurt and I curl my toes to see if the itching stops. It doesn't. It's too late to drive to a safe place now - the itching has crystallized into a sharp burn. I stride out onto the streets, looking for a quiet place to Change."Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey.Elena Michaels is a werewolf. The man who made her one has been left behind, but his dark legacy has not. And though Elena struggles to maintain the normal life she's worked so hard to create, she cannot resist the call of the elite pack of werewolves from her past. Her feral instincts will lead her back to them and into a desperate war for survival that will test her own understanding of who, and what, she is.

What the Critics Say

"Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice's sophisticated refurbishings of the vampire story." (Publishers Weekly)

My favorite Audio title

I was so pleased when Audible picked up bitten, its my favorite audiobook. This is the story of Elana Michaels, a werewolf and her love/hate relationshp with her boyfriend Clay. I particularly love the narrator, Aasne Vigesaa who does a great job of the male characters... She really has so much talent, its too bad she doesn't narrate more books.

This novel is fairly violent and graphic so I wouldn't recommend it for younger readers, but its a werewolf novel so er... What can you really expect.

Awesome. 5 stars all the way.

Superb

The audio version of this book is superbly performed. She does both the Canadian and the Southern accents required very well. I was very pleased listening, because this has always been one of my favorite books by Kelley Armstrong. The characters of Elena and Clay are as true to what I would imagine a werewolf couple might be like. Clay is humorously recalcitrant and Elena struggles admirably against the inevitable acceptance of her stubborn nature. I hope audio picks up the other two books that feature them.
