People thought she was too hard on him? He bit her without her consent! And if I remember right, there was very little guarantee that she'd even survive the process of turning into a werewolf. I mean, I enjoyed the series enough to read quite a few of the books, but Clay's actions weren't okay.

I never warmed up to Clay. Neither in books or the tv adaptation.

I have always been conflicted about Clay. My dream couple is Jeremy and Jamie. I like Elena and I loved what Armstrong did with the pack leadership. But Clay's actions are distrubing, and I think Armstrong wants us to acknowledge that. With the back story that Clay has, it makes sense. He is barely housebroken, a true wild child. But it doesn't excuse it. The first time I read this book, I gave it two stars. I upped it one here. On a re-read, it seems to me that Armstrong is trying to examine and not so much subvert but realistcally, protray the problems in UF with the love triangles that in some books are really unacceptable behavior on the part of the male leads. I don't think she entirely succeds, but she does try - the bondage sex scene, I think, is also an example of the conflic between the animal and human nature. Elena herself acknowledges that she is not human - she is human and animal, and I think that question is what Armstrong is playing with.
