Smart, sexy, supernatural—the men and women of the Otherworld live and love, fight and die, among us. Unseen and unsuspected, this realm of witches, ghosts, and werewolves is now threatened with exposure by a brutal series of bizarre murders that has left even the supernatural world baffled—and cold with terror….

Being the world’s only female werewolf has its advantages, such as having her pick of the Otherworld’s most desirable males. And Elena Michaels couldn’t have picked a more dangerously sexy and undyingly loyal mate than Clayton Danvers. Now their bond will be put to the ultimate test as they follow a bloody trail of gruesome slayings deep into Alaska’s frozen wilderness.

There’s nothing the werewolf community dislikes more than calling attention to itself. So when a pair of rogue man-eaters begins hunting humans, it’s up to Elena and Clayton to track down the predators. But any illusions their task would be simple are quickly dispelled. For even in werewolf terms, there’s something very disturbing taking place in the dark Alaskan forests. A werewolf more wolf than human and more unnatural than supernatural is on the hunt—a creature whose origins seem to spring from ancient legends of the shape-shifting Wendigo.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Clayton and Elena find themselves confronting painful ghosts from their pasts—and an issue neither of them is eager to discuss. For one of them has been chosen to become the new Pack leader, and as every wolf knows, there can be only one Alpha. They’ve always been equals in everything. Now, when their survival depends more than ever on perfect teamwork, will instinct allow one of them to lead…and the other to follow?

Kelley Armstrong's werewolf books are without a doubt my favorite stories. And yet this installment did not hold my attention in quite the same way that the previous book were able to.

I don't understand it myself but whenever I continued to read the book after a little break I found myself reluctant to continue. After a few pages I was once again sucked into the book but the fact that even for a moment I was questioning myself on whether or not I wanted to continue worried me.

Most of the issues that are worked out in this book are not old ones. There are many allusions to Elena's past and if you want to find out more about it you can always read Beginnings. It is a novella that used to be on her site but you can now read it in one of her anthologies either by buying the book or checking the book out from the library. It is really good and I liked how we got to see both Elena and Clay before problems started in their relationship. It was nice to know that they could be in the same room and not want to hurt each other at one point.

This book introduces a lot of new characters as well as a whole new species. There are short pauses where Kate and Logan show up, Clay and Elena's twin three and a half year, and they are also mentioned through out. Kate seems to follow after Clay and Logan is a combination of Jeremy and Elena which is very interesting to say the least.

There are so many twists in this book and the plot seems to change so many times from what the reader starts to believe is the main plot of the book that if this was a string of Christmas lights I would not even bother trying to pull them apart.

The only problem that I have is Elena's scent. I really wish that she was not so appealing to every male werewolf in their world because having every bad guy pine after Elena is starting to get annoying.
