After Living With The Dead, I was starting to get a little worried about the Women of the Otherworld series, but with Frostbitten KA is showing us she has not lost her edge at all. In a move back to her favoured 1st person narrative, and from the perspective of Otherworld favourite Elena, Frostbitten shows what KA does best.
The plot is action packed, with Armstrong manging to balance an butt kicking plot with many intriguing sub-plots. Whilst tracking a rogue Mutt to give him a warning Elena, ends up away from home. Jeremy asks Elena to check out some reported killings in Alaska, and sends Clay to help her. They uncover a group of European Mutts, who are intent in usurping the pack and a battle commences which puts Elena and Clay in terrible danger. We also see how Elena is dealing with Jeremy's decision to name her as Alpha ascending, and how Clay is coping after the incident in Broken that left his right arm near ruined. There are some interesting new characters, and some amazing new supernatural creatures.
The writing is fast paced and kept me hooked, and it was great to see Elena growing as a character, and her relationship with Clay growing too, there are some reminders of Elena's troubled past, and worries for both of their futures, and they need to work through them is Elena is to be alpha, and Clay to be her enforcer.
If there was one complaint, it would be that there wasn't enough Jeremy, but that makes sense given his decision to step down as alpha.
