As most will know by now, Kelley Armstrong's urban fantasy novel Bitten (2001) from her Women of the Otherworld series is coming to television, initially on Space. For American fans I am sure it will be picked up by SyFy at some point. The show starts principal shooting sometime this month in Hespeler Ontario for an early 2014 release and a planned 13 episodes. Hespeler is a stand-in for the Stonehaven/Bear Creek, New York location used in the novel. And lucky me, this location is only 15 miles from where I live.
|Hespeler Village on the Speed River|
Elena Michaels is the world’s only female werewolf. And she’s tired of it. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her–her temper, her violence–but requires it. Worst of all, she realizes she’s growing content with that life, with being that person.
So she left the Pack and returned to Toronto where she’s trying to live as a human. When the Pack leader calls asking for her help fighting a sudden uprising, she only agrees because she owes him. Once this is over, she’ll be squared with the Pack and free to live life as a human. Which is what she wants. Really.
