” It’s no exaggeration to say that I LOVED this book!”
~ Under the Covers

I know I have probably said his before but… thank goodness for #rollbackweek! This month I decided to continue my journey into Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series and read book two Stolen. If you have read my review of the first book Bitten than you know I was already enjoying this series; however, Stolen blew the first book out of the water. It’s no exaggeration to say that I LOVED this book.

Stolen, much like the first book, is action packed and fast paced, but more than that Armstrong continues to build upon the world she has constructed by introducing us to a host of other paranormal races, including and not limited to; witches, demons and vampires. Much like us Elena, Clay and the Pack were oblivious to the existence of these other species of the supernatural, so we are inducted into the presence of this whole new world at the same pace as they were, thus ensuring we didn’t have an information overload.

As much fun as it was seeing Armstrong’s world expand and the Pack’s reaction to this, what I truly enjoyed about Stolen was the story. Elena has been captured by an eccentric and cruel billionaire – human of course – for nefarious purposes. This plot line really forced Elena to show herself at her best. She has to use all her wiles to survive as physical strength and agility – something she has always relied on – will not get her anywhere but dead. Seeing Elena in this locked room environment, as cliche as the story line may appear, never felt stagnant or boring. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next, how she would cope both emotionally and physically and because of this harrowing experience I felt like I knew, and liked, her a lot better by the end of the book.

But I also can’t resist a bit of romance and of course the dire situation Elena is forced into made her look at her feelings for Clay a lot closer than she would perhaps like and made her acknowledge a few truths that she’s been avoiding. Of course, I’m sure in books to come we will have more Elena and Clay related drama and I look forward to that and seeing how their relationship continues to develop.

I am really loving this series and I can’t wait to learn more about some of the new characters Armstrong has introduced us to in this book. If, like me, you are behind and haven’t started this series yet, than you need to pick it up immediately; I promise you won’t regret it!spacer

About Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.
