Frostbitten–Kelley Armstrong

Every time the werewolves come back I get super excited. I may or may not be completely in love with Clay.

Which would make him scowl and hate my guts if he was a real person. (There are probably some psychological issues of my own that I need to work out if I actually fall for people like that in real life.)

What I like the most about him is his love for Elena and how it’s so steady even when they are fighting. …So that really doesn’t lend to my theory that I have a problem then.

Plus I love that he’s sarcastic as fuck. He’s more of a kindred spirit than a potential love interest for me then.

…I realize what I’m writing sounds completely insane because he’s a fictional character, but these are the things I think about. So fuck off.

So, this book is about the pair of them hunting down mutts in Alaska. But not just mutts, crazy Russian mutts who are known rapists and sadists.

Not to mention there is a werewolf living in the woods with a wolf pack. A legit animal wolf pack, not just a werewolf pack.

And this crazy half man half wolf half bear (wait…that’s too many halves…) attacking things in the woods as well.

Shit gets crazy and I loved it.

Constant vigilance.

Broken–Kelley Armstrong

The werewolves are back! The werewolves are back!

I love my wolf pack.

Honestly, I look forward to seeing them throughout the series more than any other characters, but I’m really glad that this series isn’t completely revolving around them. Kelley Armstrong writes in such a way that I’ll always be intrigued by this series. She keeps you on your toes!

“Broken” is about my beloved wolf pack, and things are changing. (Pun not completely intended.)

Remember Xavier? He was from “Stolen”, he was that dingaling teleporter that is really only after things for himself? Couldn’t really care about anyone unless they could do something for him?

Well. He’s back and he’s asking Elena and Clay’s help in stealing the “From Hell” letter that is rumoured to contain Jack the Ripper.

Go figure that they accidentally open a portal and unwittingly let him out.

The real problem with this? There are all sorts of diseases that come from Victorian England and Elena has a little parasite of her own happening.

She’s pregnant. Naturally, Clay is worried as fuck.

Great writing, one of my favourite books as you get to see this couple work together again and do battle, but also that you get to see Elena trying to act in the best interest of her future kids instead of just herself and Clay.

Loved it. Constant vigilance!

Dime Store Magic–Kelley Armstrong

While I love Clayton Danvers (the hunky blond Southern werewolf who dislikes humans) I have a major crush on Lucas Cortez’s mind.

He’s described as “average” looking, but that guy can talk textbook to me anytime.

This book is about Paige Winterbourne, a short, curvy, twenty-three year old witch who is trying to fulfill her mothers dying wish of taking care of twelve year old Savannah Levine, an orphaned (after the last book, Stolen) teenage witch with more power than should be normal at her age.

Paige is fighting a custody battle from a previous captured supernatural, or so it would seem. In truth Paige is fighting a Cabal leader for custody of his only daughter that he hasn’t ever met.

Thrills up the wazoo, fun writing, and just all around great way to introduce the characters that have been woven in and out of the previous books with the weres.

Bitten–Kelley Armstrong

We’ve met, so you know that I need to reread a series before I continue on with the latest book. Well, I haven’t read her two latest novels, and I have a slight problem:

This series is 13 regular books long and in tow with those 16 short story filled books. And as I’m Googling to see what’s up with her and the correct chronological order, I’ve noticed that since I thought she only had two new books out: she’s published four more.

What the hell!!!

But it’s too late, I’ve already started. I mean, I’m only on the second one, but like I said: I’m a purest.

So here I am reading this series for probably the fourth time and it’s made me realize something pretty important:

I love the hell out of these characters. She still got me when one of my favourite characters dies, even though I planned on skimming the books I’ve already read she still sucked me in with her amazing storytelling, and even though I know the first book backwards and forwards Bitten was still a great book to read.
