Book Description

For seventeen years, Eloise Hart had no idea the world of Faery even existed. Now she has been abducted and trapped in the Rath of Lord Strahan, King of Faery. Strahan was only meant to rule for seven years, as Faery tradition dictates, and then give up his crown to another. But he won't comply, and now chaos threatens both worlds. The only one who can break his stranglehold on the Faery court is his wife, Eloise's aunt, Antonia. Using Eloise to lure Antonia, Strahan captures his wife, desperate to end the only threat to his reign. Together with her best friends Jo and Devin, Eloise must place her trust in Lucas, her handsome protector, and Strahan's mysterious son, Eldric, and forge alliances with other Fae in a dangerous attempt to free Antonia for ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance amidst the Faeries 8 Jan. 2012
Format:Paperback
It's official! Alyxandra Harvey can do it all! After having successfully written about the world of vampires and ghosts, she's now moved onto a new subject, faeries, weaving a captivating story of love and danger amidst the faerie realm. I found myself totally immersed in `Stolen Away' from the moment that Lucas appears on the scene with his sword by his side and kneels at the feet of the main protagonist Eloise. He has vowed to protect her against the danger posed by Lord Strahan, the faerie king, who wants to use Eloise as a pawn in his battle to hold onto his crown.

There's romance aplenty between Eloise and Lucas, but also some hot and sizzling moments between Eloise's best-friend Jo and Eldric, the dark and handsome stranger that arrives on the scene to sweep Jo off her feet. I absolutely adored the relationship between the latter pairing as Eldric set my heart aflutter too. Everyone loves a bad boy! He's quite an enigmatic figure and so at the beginning of the book it's impossible to know whether or not he can be trusted but as his character is gradually developed we learn more about him and his own family history. I loved the way that he seemed as drawn to Jo as she was to him, like a magnetic force which is out of their control and he always appeared just when she needed him. There are plenty of hot kisses between them and an undeniable spark in the air whenever they're together. My only complaint was that I wanted to read more about them and I have my fingers firmly crossed that we may just see a sequel about them in the future.

Eloise and Jo are joined by their other best friend Devin who is right there by their side throughout the events of the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK read 15 May 2012
Format:Paperback
I'm beginning to read more and more books based on the Fae. I have to say I am really getting into these kind of books. Anyway back to Stolen Away, it was a fairly good book and the story was certainly exciting in places. It has certainly made me want to read more books on fairies and also I would like to try more books by this author. I don't like to write authors off after one book.

One of my concerns was that I was a little confused at times with the dual narrative, I kept getting the two female characters mixed up and had to keep going back to see who the character was. The two main characters are Eloise and Jo, they both have different experiences of the Fae but both of them have a love interest. Also at times the story seemed to fall a bit flat. A couple of times I really had to pick the book back up otherwise it was in danger of staying unread. Although not gripping read, it did have moments of glory. I felt there was no one character that stood out for me, they all seemed to lack depth. I love a good complex character, and I certainly like to see character development throughout, this did not happen for me in Stolen Away. The British slang used by Jo is a little annoying too, I'm from England and it had me cringing.

However this book does have some good points, I liked the setting both in this world and the Fae world. The description of the surroundings was certainly a plus for me. The style of writing is also good, it is an easy reading style and one I certainly felt comfortable with.

I wish this book was not a stand alone; there was certainly room for another one as there were questions left unanswered. Shame really.

Thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for the opportunity to read and review this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought 31 Mar. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let me make this point very clear first of all: this book is not the next instalment in The Drake Chronicles, as Amazon seems to think it is. The worlds established in The Drake Chronicles and in this book are completely different, so there is no way to connect them together. I actually bought this book as I thought that this would be the next book in The Drake Chronicles.

That aside, this is quite a good book. I'm not going to lay out the storyline - there is already a product description and I don't want to repeat anything already mentioned, nor do I want to reveal any spoilers accidentally. The book centres around Eloise and Jo in point-of-view chapters that alternatively flicker from one girl to the next, which seems to be a technique Ms. Harvey likes to adopt, as it's seen through all of the books I have read by her (which is by no means all of them). The characters of Eloise and Jo themselves are quite similar to the characters of Solange and Lucy in The Drake Chronicles, but that's only because they are very determined, head-strong teenagers, which coincidently helped me to get into this book quickly as it is always good to read a book with such strong female characters. Though as much as I enjoy to read about strong, female leads; nothing can beat the gorgeous bad-boy, and this book certainly has the perfect bad-boy in the form of Eldric (again, I won't mention much about him as I don't want to reveal any spoilers).

And this book, unlike many out there, doesn't solely focus on the girls' relationships with the new guys in their lives. Yes, quite a bit of it is focused on this, but there is more than enough dark periods to make up for this fact, with the notorious reputation that mythology has held for centuries about the Fey and their world.
