By the time I got to the end of the Otherworld series, I wanted there to be more. And thankfully, there are tons of other stories about the characters out there. First, I went ahead and read Men of the Otherworld and this collection, but they were just the jumping of point for me to go on and read all the various short stories I could find.
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 feel like this was probably the best ending this series could have had.
The thing that I really love about the novellas in this series are that they’re a mix of shorter action-packed stories and character development. I particularly like the opportunities given to fleshing out more minor characters in the series, as well as showing different perspectives of the protagonists.
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.
