Bitten by Dan O'Brien

A predator stalks a cold northern Minnesotan town. There is talk of wolves walking on two legs and attacking people in the deep woods. Lauren Westlake, resourceful and determined F.B.I Agent, has found a connection between the strange murders in the north and a case file almost a hundred years old. Traveling to the cold north, she begins an investigation that spirals deep into the darkness of mythology and nightmares. Filled with creatures of the night and an ancient romance, the revelation of who hunts beneath the moon is more grisly than anyone could have imagined.
Lauren Westlake is an FBI Agent whom's experience leads her to believe that a recent killing in the small town of Locke, Minnesota is similiar to an old case.  Not only is the victim dead, but it's a gruesome killing.  Her investigation, along with the town's sheriff, lead them to a beast.  Lauren decides to take the investigation in another path and that leads her to a small cottage and Hecate.  There, she imbibes a potion that lets her 'see' into the past.  Her vision shows her a man who desires to be a werewolf and a werewolf who prefers to become a man.  She needs to find them both to solve her case.  But whom will it be?
With a strong heroine, a splash of romance and a chilling plot, Bitten is a new twist on the age-old werewolf story tossed with mystery.  O'Brien does a good job of keeping things rolling with minimum fluff.  If you're looking for a new take on the paranormal with a dash of suspense and can stomach some gorey situations, pick up Bitten!

  1. I love Kelley Armstrong's series that started with Bitten - wish they'd come up with a unique title for this one. Probably wouldn't pick up their version for tha simple reason (checked and hers was published earlier).


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
