‘Women of the Otherworld’ series Book #2
In the tradition of Laurell K. Hamilton, and just in time for Halloween, a deliciously wicken 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 – 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.
Review: As the second book of the ‘Women of the Otherworld’ series, it was just as excellent as the first!
The returning characters are just as great in this novel as in the first; completely independent and stubborn all three. The new characters, all different, each have a personality, giving themselves their own light in the book. Characters you like, love, hate and loathe.
I like the way the writer describes Elena’s surroundings, how and what she feels whether in human or wolf form, in good times and in bad. Different that what I’ve read before … and a good different, I might add.
The plot was great, the action great … can’t wait to read the next one. A definite recommendation!
