Bitten Recap: Episode 1.9 - "Vengeance"

BY Mala Bhattacharjee, MARCH 11, 2014 | PERMALINK

Bitten 1x9, “Vengeance,” is all about ch-ch-changes. So, crank up the Bowie!

We open on Nick and Jeremy sparring on the Stonehaven grounds (because Bitten loves me), as Big J advises Nick on the value of self control. Jeremy hopes story time will underscore his lessons. Flash back to 1984, with a very young Antonio and a wee baby Nick (because Bitten loves me A LOT). Jimmy Koenig, who looked like Mick Jagger and Benicio del Toro’s love child, was sent to bring them home to Stonehaven after Antonio left Nick’s mother. With wee baby Nick in a car seat nearby, Koenig made Tony choke a mutt to death. Not because it was the Alpha’s price for returning but “just for the sport of it,” says Jeremy. “Don’t lose your focus.”

Koenig can’t get no satisfaction.

Bitten Recap: Episode 1.8 - "Prisoner"

BY Mala Bhattacharjee, MARCH 04, 2014 | PERMALINK

In Bitten 1.8, “Prisoner,” there’s physical torment, emotional torment and a sexy scene too hot for American TV.

Far from whistling while they work, Elena and Clay clean up the bloody remnants of Antonio’s demise. “I feel like we failed Antonio,” Elena whispers, Lady Macbeth-ing the bloody table. “We did,” broods Clay. Elena then checks on a feverish Jeremy, who is still Alpha enough to tell her how to solve his poisoning woes. (Bad. Ass.) Clay offers to torture Cain for the type of poison used. “I’ll make him talk,” he vows. Too bad Cain has wolfed out! Elena decides to go find the rest of the mutts, starting with their human hanger-on, Amber, and promises Clay she’ll call if she needs backup.

Today we're pleased to reveal the video trailer for Lynn Viehl's upcoming Disenchanted & Co. steampunk tale, The Clockwork Wolf, just in time for the book's release next Tuesday. So relax, grab a snack and enjoy!

***

Back cover blurb:

As the proprietor of Disenchanted & Co. in a steampunk version of America, Charmian “Kit” Kittredge makes her living solving magical crimes. But when a snobbish lady begs for help, saving her reputation might very well cost Kit her life.

Doing a favor for deathmage Lucien Dredmore, Kit agrees to interview a newly widowed lady as a potential client. Upon meeting, however, she learns that the woman in question is none other than Lady Eugenia Bestly, president of the Rumsen Ladies Decency Society— someone who once led a vicious campaign to ruin Kit’s life. Ironically Lady Bestly now lives in fear herself, for the press is about to unmask her husband as the savage “Wolfman” who died while terrorizing the city.
