Iíve loved all of the books in the Women of the Otherworld series, but the stories featuring Elena have never been my favorites - that is, until I read this one. Now Frostbitten shares the favorite spot with Industrial Magic.
There is more humor and more insight into the characters, all topped off with an attention-getting plot - a hard combo to beat. The basic story: humans are being killed by what appear to be wolves. Jeremy, the Pack Alpha, sends Elena and her husband, Clay, to Anchorage, Alaska, to find out whatís going on. Itís far more complicated than it first seems and Elena faces more danger than she originally thought.
The subplots are interesting, too. Jeremy considers naming Elena to follow him as Pack Alpha. She is the only female werewolf and there are plenty of wolves who think sheís weak, so itís a risky move. Elena confronts some of her own personal demons on this trip, and so does Clay. How that affects their marriage as well as how it affects the Pack is critical.
If youíve never read a Women of the Otherworld book, I wouldnít recommend that you start with this one, much as I love it. There is so much to the story that will make more sense if you read the other Elena books. Start at the beginning with Bitten then move on to Stolen, followed by Broken - then read Frostbitten. The story is* self-contained, but there are nuances that you will better understand if youíve read the others.
