Bitten by Kelley Armstrong

I'm excited that so many good books are finally making their way onto the big screen...or well at least on to a channel to be viewed on millions of littler screens as is the case with the show Bitten, which should air sometime early next year in Canada. (Hopefully it won't take too long for it to reach the States, since I'm really interested in watching it.)

The show hopefully will be good and stick true to it's literary counterpart. This isn't the first time someone has tried to make an adaption of Kelley Armstrong's book. Bitten was once opted as a movie by Warner Bros. in which Angelina Jolie was approached to play the lead role as Elena, a woman bitten and turned into a werewolf and struggling to keep hold of her humanity. 

Years ago a friend suggested I read this book, the first book in a series about werewolves by Kelley Armstrong. It's taken me a lot longer than I'd like to admit to finally get around to picking this book up and reading it for myself, but as my friend guessed, I did enjoy it. 

As I mentioned, Bitten follows the story of Elena, who was bitten and turned into a werewolf, and is the only female werewolf. She's tired of being a werewolf and wants instead to live on her own among normal humans, but she is called back to her old life by her pack leader in order to hunt a rouge werewolf who's killing humans and endangering the packs survival. Things get more complicated when one rouge werewolf turns out to be a band of rouge werewolves set on destroying her pack. 

I can't wait to read more of the books in this series and to watch the new tv show.
