Elena was a werewolf. she left behind her world of supernatural at Stonehaven, thinking that she could escape her fate by creating a new one as a photographer in Toronto. one day, she received a call from her pack leader, asking her to come back. she returned to Stonehaven, again meeting the other werewolves, protecting her pack, and facing the man that she tried so hard to get out of her system. to make matter worse, she was the only living female werewolf left.
taken from the Women of the Otherworld (2001-2012) book series written by Kelly Armstrong, Bitten (2001) was the book of the series. having been a huge fan of the book series, i had looked forward to seeing it being translated into a series. comparing to the Elena in my imagination from reading the book, the one in the television was far more feminine. while her tough girl attitude took quite a while to sink in, she wasn't a difficult character to love. Clay on the other hand, was surprisingly distasteful where else in the book, he was the pitiful ex that Elena discarded, also the one i rooted for since the very beginning. it was definitely interesting to see how things flow from there onward, not only with their relationship, but also with the werewolves.
