More than just your typical snarky heroine mystery-solving action babe book, [b:Bitten|11918|Bitten (Women of the Otherworld, #1)|Kelley Armstrong|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1306101770s/11918.jpg|2606334] has emotional depth and really well-developed characters that makes it so much more.
After reading this as well as Clay's story in [b:Men of the Otherworld|3422075|Men of the Otherworld (Otherworld Stories, #1)|Kelley Armstrong|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320501705s/3422075.jpg|2860439], and Clay and Elena's story in [b:Tales of the Otherworld|6539105|Tales of the Otherworld (Otherworld Stories, #II)|Kelley Armstrong|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1258763216s/6539105.jpg|6731327], I am a total Clelena shipper. If you look up "Tumultuous Love Story" in the dictionary, they will be there.
Plus, it takes a fabulous writer for me to actually highly enjoy all the wolf-POV scenes. I mean, I'm not really an animal person - I actually haven't been able to get past the first page of [b:The Knife of Never Letting Go|2118745|The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)|Patrick Ness|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1277071696s/2118745.jpg|2124180] after reading dog's dialogue and I haven't been able to get too into [b:Shiver|6068551|Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)|Maggie Stiefvater|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328839272s/6068551.jpg|6244926], so I would normally basically run away in horror. But Armstrong writes these scenes with such joy
that I can't help but love them.
