The Women of the Otherworld–Kelley Armstrong

I was first introduced to this series by my brother who thinks it is endlessly amusing. I have to agree with him.

This series is written by a fellow Canadian, and she is among my favourite authors. Kelley Armstrong has written the Women of the Otherworld series, and it’s a delightful new take on the supernatural world.

The first book “Bitten” starts out following the only female werewolf, Elena Michaels, as she tries to deal with becoming a werewolf and trying to fit in with normal people. She’s even dating a regular guy, but often needs to sneak out in the middle of the night in the big city of Toronto, in order to go for a run as her werewolf self.

Thankfully, she is needed in the supernatural world where you discover that she has a serious attachment to a hunky blond werewolf named Clay, who is adamantly trying to get back together with her.

This is a refreshing new take on the supernatural scene, and I think I like following werewolves more than I like reading about certain vampires. The rest of the series is about Elenas friends who also happen to be supernatural beings. Keep going and you’ll find that there are witches, wizards, vampires, and more werewolf fun to be had.

I recommend this to any girl who wants to read about women who kick men’s asses and don’t give a rats ass about looking good while doing it. Regular women with amazing abilities.
