I've read this before so rereading it now. I enjoyed how Elena found herself and figures out how she already had everything she wanted and needed to stop running away ( )

This novel was one of my favourites as a teen. It has sexy romps in the woods, a studly lead, and a sharp-tongued heroine.

It's just not as gripping as I remember. I made it to 50% and had enough - I wasn't interested in the plot enough to continue. It could be because I've read a fair bit of pnr and urban fantasy since my first read-through, and it began to feel generic. Maybe it was more exciting at the time, because I read it when I was in the midst of my werewolf/vampire/Anita Blake obsession phase.

It was fun to return to that mindset for a few hours. I just didn't feel like staying for longer than that. ( )

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. Elena was such a riveting character. It's rare that I find a book where I am so drawn in to their personality, that I feel the same emotions as that character. She was strong, witty, and loyal. Throughout the story, she struggled with her dual desires: to live a human life and to fully embrace her werewolf life. I liked her interactions with the others, especially Clay. He was driven to keep her with the Pack, but seemed to learn from his previous mistakes by taking a different approach with her. There were many suspenseful moments as well that was surprisingly pleasant. The outcome to her wants and the danger that the Pack faced was believable and realistic. This was a nice start to this series. ( )

It took me a long time to get to the end of this book because there was so much going on the past week. This was an awesome book. It's part romantic, part kick ass chick and kick ass well period. This book has so many different things happen, that it just really made a very enjoyable reading experience. I will most definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series. I really enjoy Kelley Armstrong's writing. It just flows really great together, from event to event. I just REALLY did love it. ( )

Book description
Elena Michaels would love to be an ordinary woman and she tries very hard, but she's sure her boyfriend just wouldn't understand about her being a werewolf. She hides her self and lives as a lone-wolf until a former pack member comes calling for her help.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452286034, Mass Market Paperback)

I've been fighting it all night. I'm going to lose ...Nature wins out. It always does.' Elena Michaels didn't know that her lover Clay was a werewolf until he bit her, changing her life forever. Betrayed and furious, she cannot accept her transformation, and wants nothing to do with her Pack - a charismatic group of fellow werewolves who say they want to help. When a series of brutal murders threatens the Pack - and Clay - Elena is forced to make an impossible choice. Abandon the only people who truly understand her new nature, or help them to save the lover who ruined her life, and who still wants her back at any cost.

Elena Michaels is a self-described "mutt," a werewolf who left her secretive pack in upstate New York for a life among humans. In the year since she relocated to Toronto, she's embarked on a career as a journalist and begun a pleasingly mundane relationship with a decent man. All this is jeopardized when she agrees to help her old packmates hunt some troublesome mutts who are converting common criminals to werewolves and leaving a trail of conspicuous carnage. Reunited with her former lycanthrope lover and forced into brutally predatory confrontations, Elena finds the call of the wild subtly reasserting itself.… (more)
