"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 :)

I Love this book series would recommend it to anyone who likes supernatural things, However for those people who have seen the TV show with the same name you should be aware that yes they are similar but there are still a lot of differences that kind of makes it its own story.

I bought bitten and stolen after enjoying the darkest power series, I was hungry for more and they didnt disapoint me in particular stolen. I enjoyed the plot and had finished the book in one sitting it was so addictive. I have ordered the next three in the series, hopefully they will be just as good as the first 2 with the werewolves!!

This is a brilliant series, well.written, I love the humour, excitement, all the characters have their own story to tell, and each story is worth reading. I like that each race has goodies and baddies and even then the goodies have their bad side....just like 'real life'! Kelley Armstrong is now.on my list of favourite authors. Her other series are good too!!

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.
