I read one of Kelly Armstrong's books (Stolen) and I enjoyed it. I usually don't like vampire books except for Anne Rice and Kelly Armstrong. Armstrong's books are not all about gore. The characters are likable and I find her books well written. The books do follow in a series, so if you like them the first one is Bitten. Stolen explains how Savannah came into the care of Paige. I will have to finish this one.
