My Rating: 2.5 out of 5
I had massive issues getting into Stolen. I don't know if it was because I burnt myself out on books like it, or just because suddenly what I loved about Elana suddenly bothered me. It took me quite a long time though, to get into it, and then with what I'm realizing is a startling trend with me, once I got into it I couldn't put it down. It was like suddenly something inside me clicked with the book, and I was all about wanting to know what happend next.
Elana is told by a witch, that there is someone out there kidnapping supernatural races, and that possibly Elana's Pack might be next. Of course Elana doesn't believe her, because there is no such thing as witches. When people start breaking into Elana's hotel room, she realizes that these incidents might be more than a coincidence.
Of course Elana gets captured, and the people who captured her get more than they bargained for. It really shakes her beliefs to find out that there really are other supernatural beings out there. Just like in Bitten, there are some parts that are rather ... gruesome. But those parts fit in with the storyline, so it wasn't as if they were just randomly tossed in there.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal/urban fantasy stuff with a slight hint of romance.
