This sequel to Full Wolf Moon takes place about ten years after the incident at the Lakeside Assembly Center in eastern California. Captain Maxwell Pierce hunts the beast that once used him as a host and sent him on the run as a possible murderer, who’s now assumed to be dead. Along with Native American David Alma Curar, Max follows the werewolf wherever it may hunt. They do their best to save the host, but the werewolf has to die at any cost.

The beast is not born of this world; it’s a malevolent, universal entity that breaks through to this universe. It’s ancient and powerful, and it thrives on human terror. It needs fear to exist. But in order to feed, it must take on a flesh and blood form, and every First Night—every full moon—the beast erupts from its human host, bringing carnage until little is left. Then it leaves the territory for fresh hunting grounds.

Max and David follow the werewolf out of the country, to a little village in the Dominican Republic, where things go horribly wrong and they realize they’re up against a beast with far more intelligence than any in the past. What’s more mind-boggling is that this beast hunts its own—but it doesn’t kill Max and David when it has the chance, and they don’t know why.

Ms. Nappier could give lessons in how to begin a novel that grabs you from the beginning and won’t let go. Filled with action-packed suspense, Bitten makes you feel as if you’re on the hunt too, and you have to remind yourself to breathe when you come face to face with the beast.

Characterization isn’t sacrificed for the thrills, either. You get to know Max and David—their fears, as well as their strengths and weaknesses—along with the rest of the cast, each different and interesting in their own right. No thrill is thrown into Bitten without a purpose, and all incidents eventually come full circle.

If you thought Full Wolf Moon was a great read, as I did, you’ll love Bitten, too. Ms. Nappier is the go-to author for werewolf fiction. I wouldn’t pass her up, and I eagerly await her next novel.
