From one of today’s most original writers comes the mesmerizing tale of an exceptional young woman caught up in an otherworldly realm where some will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world’s most powerful elite organizations—the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige’s wildest antics can’t hold a candle to those of her new charge—an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil...and evil is all too willing to claim her. For this girl is being pursued by a dark faction of the supernatural underworld. They are a vicious group who will do anything to woo the young, malleable, and extremely powerful neophyte, including commit murder—and frame Paige for the crime. It’s an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive.

From the Back Cover:
Praise for Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten, the first Elena Michaels novel:
About the Author:
“Bitten is hip and postmodern. . . . Those who enjoy the vampire books of Anne Rice, or Canadian vampire writer Nancy Kilpatrick, will love it.” -- The Globe and Mail
“Fast and entertaining. . . . Surely one of the sexiest, most energetic novels published in a long time.” -- The Gazette (Montreal)
“Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice’s sophisticated re-furbishings of the vampire story.” -- Publishers Weekly
“Wicked writing gets noticed, and first-time novelist Kelley Armstrong has written a deliciously wicked book.” -- Toronto Star
“Bitten is a lightning-paced, violent and completely readable entertainment that entertains loudly and abundantly.” -- The Hamilton Spectator
“It’s as smooth as cream all the way, sure to gain fans.” -- Kirkus Reviews
