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.Read more ›
However that is not to say that the story wasn’t enjoyable because it was – it just wasn’t as unique as I thought it would be, and I also had a hard time connecting to the main character Eloise. Her best friend Jo however, I absolutely adored! And I felt that it was through Jo that the humour, wit and emotion that I like about Alyxandra Harvey’s writing really shone through.
The plot itself was fairly simple and held just enough intrigue and twists to keep me turning the pages. Yet I really liked how the story was told through the dual points of view of Eloise and Jo – both of whom were prone to bad decisions and trouble, which made them very relatable teenagers.
Both of their love interests, Lucas and Eldric were also very swoon worthy. I felt it was a shame that the book ended when it did, as although all the loose ends were tied up, the romance between the characters was lovely and I wanted to see more of it!
So a little fast paced but overall, ‘Stolen Away’ was a quick, light-hearted read with an original story line and great writing. Although I would argue that it’s more for younger teens, it was still an ok read. And also I have to mention – the cover is absolutely gorgeous and does look very pretty on a bookshelf. J
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.Read more ›
