[books] Frostbitten

Years ago, when I was still a young part-time bookseller(1), I picked up a book (on deep discount from the bargain books section) because it was about a female werewolf: Bitten by Kelley Armstrong. It was a quick read and I adored Elena and her world. (Flawed, but fantastic.) Since then, I've read most of Armstrong's books and am always extra excited when Elena's the POV character.

The tenth book of the Women of the Otherworld series is going to be about Elena again! Frostbitten.

Here's part of the blurb from Amazon:

There’s nothing the werewolf community dislikes more than calling attention to itself. So when a pair of rogue man-eaters begins hunting humans, it’s up to Elena and Clayton to track down the predators. But any illusions their task would be simple are quickly dispelled. For even in werewolf terms, there’s something very disturbing taking place in the dark Alaskan forests. A werewolf more wolf than human and more unnatural than supernatural is on the hunt—a creature whose origins seem to spring from ancient legends of the shape-shifting Wendigo.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Clayton and Elena find themselves confronting painful ghosts from their pasts—and an issue neither of them is eager to discuss. For one of them has been chosen to become the new Pack leader, and as every wolf knows, there can be only one Alpha. They’ve always been equals in everything. Now, when their survival depends more than ever on perfect teamwork, will instinct allow one of them to lead…and the other to follow?

Elena! Alaska! Pack leader problems! Wendigo! Hunting werewolves! Man-eaters! This book has so many of my favorite things in it!

Best news yet? It's released TOMORROW! I don't even have to wait! I rarely buy books on release day anymore, but I think I'll make an exception for this one(2).

(1) Or possibly it was one of the books I bought the day of my interview, but either way, it was a long time ago and it was right around the time I started working at the bookstore.

(2) tammypierce's books always get exceptions, and karenhealey's will as well. In fact, my exceptions list is getting kind of unwieldy these days. I need to take a look at it.
