Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book went back to where we all fell in love with this series. There’s Elena and Clay, hunting mutts, protecting the pack, and fumbling around in their relationship. Sure, they’ve got kids now, but that doesn’t change the level of chemistry or even the risks they are willing to take.
Elena and Clay have taken an uncharacteristic time apart due to their respective assignments. This put Elena in a bit of a strange situation and left her off-kilter for what should have been a regular mutt chase. She gets spooked by a visit from her past and it puts her on a collision course with disaster. Oh, and Alaska. We meet yet another type of supernatural (hmm, is this a theme?) and are confronted with the upcoming changes in pack dynamic. There was a lot of action, lots of romance (for Clay and Elena at least, it was adorable watching them snipe at each other), and interesting amounts of knowledge sharing.
This book, while darker than I expected, was also a little bit of a relief. Sure, there were some bad guys and lots of close calls, but it was almost like a vacation for Clay and Elena to work out any issues. They were far enough away from their usual paranormal allies that it focused completely on them. It was really nice to have a book that reminded me why I started reading this series.
