Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong

Set in the bleak and wintry scenery of the Alaskan countryside, Elena and Clay chase a young Australian werewolf mutt to Anchorage in hopes of keeping him alive (he'd recently parted ways from a man-eating duo known to kill young immigrants and blame the man-eating on them). And they found a pack of even meaner mutts - man-killers and gun runners holding a different young werewolf hostage.

Frostbitten, Kelley's Armstrong's tenth novel in the Women of the Otherworld Series, is nonstop action with a few twists and turns in the middle of the book that had me gasping. Elena's narrative voice is strong as ever, and Clay is at his best. We even get a glimpse of their werewolf twins Kate and Logan, who are adorable and show shades of their parents, and other members of the pack get to show up for some quick cameos and action. Plus there are a few new men in the Otherworld, including Reese, the Aussie werewolf with a secret - can't help hope there's a story coming for him.

The series is best read in order, starting with Bitten. It's not my favorite - that spot reserved by Stolen and the Men of the Otherworld Anthology, but Frostbitten definitely delivers.

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
