Even though she's the world's only female werewolf, Elena Michaels is just a regular girl at heart -- with larger than normal appetites. She sticks to three feasts a day, loves long runs in the moonlight, and has a lover who is unbelievable frustrating yet all the more sexy for his dark side. Like every regular girl, she certainly doesn't believe in witches. Then again, when two small, ridiculously feminine women manage to hurl her against a wall, and then save her from the hunters on her tail, Elena realizes that maybe there are more things in heaven and earth than she's dreamt of.
Vampires, demons, shamans, witches -- in Stolen they all exist, and they're all under attack. An obsessed tycoon with a sick curiosity is well on his way to amassing a private collection of supernatural's, and plans to harness their powers for himself -- even if it means killing them. For Elena, kidnapped and imprisoned deep underground, separated from her Pack, unable to tell her friends from her enemies, choosing the right allies is a matter of life and death.....
I choose this book about a week ago in my first Shrink My TBR Pile meme. It had been languishing on the TBR pile for well over a year. So glad that I finally picked it up because I think it is even better than the first book in the Women of the Otherworld series – Bitten.
Elena is coming into her own as a character and has accepted her fate as a werewolf. I also liked her husband/lover Clay much better in this book. His feelings for Elena are not as aggressive as the first book and are much deeper. I may actually have begun to like this guy.
What was wonderful about this book is the introduction of the other supernatural beings. We get to meet demons, vampires, witches and sorcerers and not all of them are nice people. Several storylines were developed in this book and although there is not “ah crap” cliff hanger there are several threads I hope Ms. Armstrong will pursue in the future. All in all a very enjoyable read.
