Review
  • The werewolves of Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series are right at home in Alaska, where there are lots of real wolves as well as lovely blue-lit snow on which to run after they change from human form. But in addition to the estranged old friends who have long lived in Anchorage—one of whom has decided to interpret his werewolf heritage as a handicap rather than a lifestyle—there is a pack of deranged Russian werewolves, and they’re killing women and hunting lone hikers in the wilderness. The bodies of the latter draw unwanted attention, for modern, up-to-date werewolves prefer to keep their own existence secret. Savaged bodies can only be blamed on real wolves so many times, so werewolf Elena and her husband, Clay, are dispatched by the Pack to investigate. Armstrong writes page-turning prose, none more throbbingly than when the werewolves enjoy romping, kinky sex. Armstrong’s earlier books have been best-sellers; expect high demand for this weird and endearing tale. -- Monaghan, Patricia (Reviewed 09-01-2009) (Booklist, vol 106, number 1, p49)
  • The gripping 10th installment of Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series returns to one of her most popular werewolves, Elena Michaels (last seen in 2006's Broken ). While chasing a gullible Aussie werewolf to warn him about two rogue werewolves who are trying to frame him for half-eating two Pittsburgh humans, Elena and her mate, fellow Pack enforcer and anthropologist Clayton “Clay” Danvers, follow his trail to Anchorage. Armstrong conveys the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness while the couple investigate more crime scenes featuring more mutilated human corpses. Elena makes a great Alpha-style leader as she holds her own against male beasts and solves the well-crafted mystery. New readers may be baffled by Pack politics, but fans will find this a solid entry in Armstrong's popular series. (Oct.) --Staff (Reviewed August 3, 2009) (Publishers Weekly, vol 256, issue 31, p33)
  • Fans of Armstrong's fabulous "Women of the Otherworld" series will be delighted to see the long-awaited return of Elena Michaels, the world's only female werewolf. We first fell in love with Elena in the 2001 series debut Bitten , and she was the heroine of two other titles in the series (Stolen and Broken ). This time, while chasing a runaway werewolf to Alaska, Elena and husband Clay encounter rogue werewolves and mysterious mammoth creatures that have them running for their lives. But Elena, always a strong female protagonist, has no intention of backing down, especially when her crazy, able-bodied mate is by her side. Armstrong remains at the top of her game with nonstop action and interesting new characters. VERDICT While the violence and sexual content may bother some readers, this book is still highly recommended for all fans of paranormal fiction.
