I heard a lot of good things about this series over the past few years, and I finally got around to reading it for myself. I didn’t really know what to expect, just that it was a teen romance and that it included fate and angels.
I absolutely loved the Women of the Otherworld series. One of the things I loved was that it was narrated by a string of strong, confident female narrators. I also liked the brief bits that were narrated by “their men”. And there were allusions to all kinds of interesting backstory bits – like Clay becoming a bitten werewolf as a child – that were never really explained in the series itself.
I was really excited to get back to Elena as a narrator in this novel. I’ve actually come to really like the other narrators in the series – particularly Eve and Hope – but there’s something about Elena and the werewolves that I’ve missed.
Frostbitten is a mix of a lot of things: part mystery, part Shifter mythology, part Pack politics, and part personal struggle.
While we’ve been waiting for the Vittorio storyline to return, this wasn’t quite what I expected. Everything is all mixed up with weretigers and Marmee Noir, and it seemed at times like the plot was more complicated than necessary.
