Book Review: Stolen

“Even though she’s the world’s only female werewolf, Elena Michaels is just a regular girl at heart — with larger than normal appetites. She sticks to three feasts a day, loves long runs in the moonlight, and has a lover who is unbelievably frustrating yet all the more sexy for his dark side. Like every regular girl, she certainly doesn’t believe in witches. Then again, when two small, ridiculously feminine women manage to hurl her against a wall, and then save her from the hunters on her tail, Elena realizes that maybe there are more things in heaven and earth than she’s dreamt of.

Vampires, demons, shamans, witches — in Stolen they all exist, and they’re all under attack. An obsessed tycoon with a sick curiosity is well on his way to amassing a private collection of supernaturals, and plans to harness their powers for himself — even if it means killing them. For Elena, kidnapped and imprisoned deep underground, separated from her Pack, unable to tell her friends from her enemies, choosing the right allies is a matter of life and death.”

Having read and loved Kelley Armstrong’s first installment of the Women of the Otherworld Series, Bitten, I couldn’t wait to read Stolen. Like the first book of the series, it is packed with action and suspense. Unlike the first book being solely about werewolves, Kelley reaches deeper in the fantasy realm to encompass a wider range of supernaturals — Vampires, Witches, Sorcerers, and the like. Stolen is riveting from the first page to last. Yet again, Kelley kept me up way past my bedtime with this page-turner. If not only with the nail-biting suspense, but also with Elena’s romance with Clay Danvers, the beautiful blonde werewolf.

The characters in this book are well-developed and all very different, creating great dialogue alongside a great plot. As the name suggests, much of this novel is based around Elena Michaels being stolen and held captive with other supernaturals. Ms. Armstrong introduced us to new heroines that will be featured in upcoming books in this series, which definitely gives you something to look forward to. I highly recommend Stolen, and it’s predecessor Bitten to anyone who’s looking for a good fantasy series.
