I decided to watch the series Bitten because I had fallen in love with the first book in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. I’m always a little hesitant to watch shows or movies that are based on a book. Sometimes it can be done really well, but I have found that more often than not, these remakes completely miss the subtleties and potence of the original books. And since this is, after all, the exact reason that I fell in love so heavily with the story line, I often finish watching the first episode or movie with a feeling of dissatisfaction and frustration. Luckily for me, Bitten wasn’t like this at all!
This is the first graphic novel that I have read in my adult life, possibly my entire life. And I found it really enjoyable. I’m not hunting out other comics / graphic novels that will capture my fancy. Although I still don’t think that anything can replace a good, solid book. Homecoming was the origin story of one of my favourite fantasy characters – Mercedes Thompson. I’ve loved her from the moment I read Moon Called and this love affair has extended to all of Patricia Briggs’ books.
