In the tradition of Laurell K. Hamilton, and just in time for Halloween, a deliciously wicked sequel to Bitten, from Canada’s new queen of suspense.Even though she’s the world’s only female werewolf, Elena Michaels is just a regular girl at heart -- ...
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 unbelievably 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 supernaturals, 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.
The second encounter with Elena Michaels and her vicissitudes is as good as the first, if not better (thanks to some relatively unexpected twist in the end), but what I like most of Kelley Armstrong is the quick pace that she keeps throughout her
Finished Bitten last night, and moved on to Stolen the second in this ‘verse created by Kelley Armstrong.In it we are introduced to a wider supernatural world. Bitten only had werewolves, now Elena learns that there are witches, demons, vampires
..."pires and others out there, and of course runs in to trouble. This time with those in the normal human world who want to learn the supernatural world for a variety of reasons. Some see it as a research opportunity, others just want the excitement of a hunt.
This is the book which introduces the character of Paige Winterbourne, the witch who goes on to narrate the next two novels. I don’t like her as much as Elena, but she is still an interesting read.Continua...Nascondi
An enjoyable page turner, and I'll be sad to see the back of the werewolves. Still, I can't help feeling that there's something missing from these otherworld books, and that stops me from giving them full marks. I also find the gratuitous sex
..."ous sex scenes between Clay and Elena a little out of place, they're more eye rolling moments than a natural part of the book.
Still very entertaining though, and I do like the way the characters have been fleshed out.
