Goodreads Summary:

Elena Michaels is the world’s only female werewolf. And she’s tired of it. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her–her temper, her violence–but requires it. Worst of all, she realizes she’s growing content with that life, with being that person.

So she left the Pack and returned to Toronto where she’s trying to live as a human. When the Pack leader calls asking for her help fighting a sudden uprising, she only agrees because she owes him. Once this is over, she’ll be squared with the Pack and free to live life as a human. Which is what she wants. Really.

Here is a spoiler summary of what happened in Bitten by Kelley Armstrong to help refresh your memory before you read the sequel.

What happened in Bitten?

  • Werewolf Elena is lviing in Toronto with her human boyfriend, Philip. Elena wants to take a break from the Pack (and her annoying ex, Clayton).
  • Pack Leader, Jeremy, has been trying to get hold of her for some reason but when she tries to clal back, no one answers her calls.
  • So Elena is forced to head down to Bear Valley, New York to find out what’s up.
  • Upon her arrival, Elena finds out that a local woman was killed by what the locals believe to be a ferla dog.
  • Obviously that’s not the case. The woman was killed by a rogue werewolf, a mutt. Mutts aren’t part of the Pack and shouldn’t be in Bear Valley.
  • Clay makes a big deal abut Elena being back but she wants to talk to Jeremy and go.
  • Elena told Philip that a family member was unwell so she has to look after her young cousins.
  • Humans arrive on the property as they want to search it for the feral dog. Thankfully the Pack gets rid of a second body before they find anything.
  • Btw, Clay is the one who bit and turned Elena into a werewolf.
  • Elena and co. go to track the mutt and they find him in a bar. The plan goes horribly and a human dies.
  • Logan arrives in town and is killed immediately.
  • The Pack figure that someone is turning human killers into werewolves and it’s probably Daniel, a mutt who’s ex-Pack.
  • The cops want to question Clay. Marsten, a mutt, and LeBlanc, a new mutt/serial killer show up and Elena puts them straight.
  • Jeremy and Clay interrogate Cain, who reveals Daniel is behind this whole thing.
  • Daniel wants Elena so she heads back to Toronto with Clay. They pretend Clay is Elena’s second cousin.
  • Marsten and Daniel show up, injure Philip, and take Clay.
  • Elena runs back to New York to tell the Pack. Then she heads off to save Clay herself.

How did Bitten end?

LeBlanc kills Daniel and escapes. Marsten helps Elena in exchange for territory. Elena kills LeBlanc. Clay takes a while to recover. Elena grabs her things from Toronto and apologises to Philip. Clay comes over and apologises and Elena lets him. Then they get back together and head to Bear Valley.
