Product Description

Review

When two desperate witches lure part-time journalist and full-time werewolf Elena Michaels into a carefully laid trap, she quickly learns that her perceptions about humanity are based on some fundamental flaws. In Kelley Armstrong's supernatural thriller, Stolen, the world is populated with vampires, demons, half-demons, magical shamans and other supernatural races living anonymously among the human population--a concept that Elena has a hard time accepting, just as she struggled with her own lupine identity in Armstrong's remarkable debut, Bitten. But when Elena returns to her werewolf pack in upstate New York, pack leader Jeremy reveals that the threat people pose to the supernatural races should not be taken lightly. When Jeremy, Elena and her lover Clay decide to take action to protect their pack, Elena gets kidnapped on the orders of a power-crazed billionaire. While being held captive she learns that while some magical beings are good and some evil, none are capable of more outright cruelty and savage betrayal than ordinary, non-magical human beings. (Armstrong actively solicited reader input via her Web site while writing the second title of her Women of the Otherworld series. This unconventional creative strategy sheds light on Armstrong's justified literary confidence. Her large cast of characters i)

"Stolen" is the sequel to Kelley Armstrong's first book, "Bitten" (2001), and thus the second book in the "Women of the Otherworld" series. If you can, read the books in order, because then you will enjoy them even more. Even better, before reading "Bitten" visit the author's website and read the 3 free prequels to the series, "Savage", "Ascension" and "Beginnings". I can guarantee you that they are excellent, and the fact that you don't have to pay for them is a great added benefit :)
Elena Micheals, the only female werewolf in the world, is again the narrator in "Stolen". That means that we are told of everything that is happening from her sometimes ironic but always funny point of view. She is working on her relationship with her boyfriend Clay, another werewolf. Of course Jeremy, the pack leader, is also present in this new adventure, but... all of them will have to keep an open mind, because it seems that there are some things/people that they didn't know about out there.
Hmmm... what about some witches, wizards, shamans and even some vampires?. An what if you add to this already dangerous mix some half-demons, and a billionaire intent on creating a zoo of supernaturals, whether they are willing or not?. The results are explosive, especially when Elena is one of the supernaturals stolen...
On the whole, I think that you are highly likely to enjoy this book, if you appreciate an original story that blends action, some horror, lots of magic and a bit of romance. Moreover, "Stolen" introduces us to Paige Winterbourne, a white witch who will be the narrator of Armstrong's next two books in the series, and who plays a role in rescuing Elena. What else can I say?. Find a comfortable sofa, start to read "Stolen", and enjoy the show :)

This is the second book written by Kelley Armstrong. The first book (Bitten) featured only werewolves and was really fantastic.
In the second book she makes her world bigger: if there are werewolves, you also have to have other magical and preternatural creatures, right ? Like whiches, sorcerers, deamons, half-demons, vampires...
And what if you take people with loads of money and no new challenges who find out that these other races excist ? You get what they had on Buffy. Quote Elena: "Boring. I slept through half the episodes." But quite so boring when she's the one who gets kidnapped...
Of course, her captureres didn't take in acount her Pack (Clay in particular) and of course, Elena herself, who will not go down without one heck of a fight...
This book is a bit different from the first one. Not so many inner thought from Elena or finding her place in the world. This deals about what you're willing to do to make sure you get out alive... So it's different, but it's still great ! Looking foreward to read number three !

Accidently picked this one up to read before the first book in the series Bitten unfortunately, but despite that, throughly enjoyed it, to the point of not being able to put it down in the last half and staying up all night to finish it. Have now ordered the first book and the following ones in the series. The author's website is also a good read for more information about characters and the like. Definitly would recommend it for those who are interested in Werewolf themed novels.

Stolen is the brilliant follow up to Kelley Armstrong's 'Bitten', we follow the development of Elena Michaels, the worlds only female werewolf. In 'Bitten', Elena was aggressive and determined to cut off her ties to her Pack including her former lover Clay, but in Stolen we see Elena accepting her werewolf side as well as Clay.
In Stolen we catch up with old characters and meet some new ones most notably Paige an acerbic apprentice witch, as well as half demons, psychics and mad scientists. Werewolves are no longer the only creatures who go bump in the night, Elena when acting as Pack enforcer meets two witches who beg for her Pack's help against a mysterious elite group of scientists and ex-military who are kidnapping and menacing the paranormal community.
Elena is snatched by this group who use paranormal beings as lab rats to find out what makes them tick. The stakes are raised when the Bill Gates type techno mogul takes a shine to Elena, but he doesn't only want her body- he wants to hunt her. It's a race against time to see if Elena can break out of her prison or whether Clay and Jeremy can find her in time. To add to her problems Elena's plan to finesse her way out of her prison backfires, when the spoilt rich researcher who she befriends injects herself with Elena's saliva and suddenly there are two female werewolves.
Kelley Armstrong delivers on the promise of the excellent Bitten with this follow up, the dialogue sparkles and Elena is developing a nicely twisted but playful sense of humour. The love scenes between Clay and Elena are as steamy as ever, and the new characters of Paige and Adam a half demon, who can burn with his touch, are interesting and add depth to the series.

So i loved Bitten, no way around that, it was fast paced, interesting and dealt with a variety of situations, not only that but the characters are brilliant. So truly, I had no hesitation in buying 'Stolen', but I must admit I did not expect it to be as good let alone better than Bitten!

In this book Elena is living back with the Pack and taking things a day at a time as far as Clay is concerned. Acting once again as pack enforcer she travels to meet two witches (unbeknownst to Elena at the time) who had advertised information regarding a real werewolf sighting. However she fsoon finds herself in the middle of a much larger situation, and go figure, witches, vampires and demons are real! Not only that but a group of humans are hunting them down to lock away as research subjects... and Elena is on their list.

Anyway, no spoilers, but its a really exiciting read and I couldn't hardly put it down (damn you work.... an 8 hour gap between reading was painful).

Overall: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Plot: 5/5
Pace: 4/5 (there are one or two instances where nothing much happens, but its still kept interesting)
