Stolen is the second novel in the Other World Series. A follow-up to Bitten, Kelley Armstrong (a New York Times Best Seller) takes her main character Elena into a world of vampires, witches, sorcerers and half demons.
Taking her safety for granted Elena becomes captured by a group of extremists who seek to exploit the powers that those in the Other World possess. Subjected to cruel testing and put into terrifying circumstances, Elena is forced to save the one person she hoped would be the one to help her escape. After she saves the life of one of her enemies, the extremists disregard Elena’s warnings. Which results in the death of many of her enemies. However in the chaos that ensues Elena is able to take advantage of the opportunity.
There are several reasons why the Other World Series should be on your must read list. Kelley Armstrong takes us into the journey of the lives of werewolves in a new and refreshing way. Gone are the male dominated hero stories. Instead time after time Elena proves her strength, intelligence and valor. We are treated to a quick pace and exciting plot line that holds our attention to the very end.
I also love that Kelley Armstrong is a fellow Canadian. Bitten and Stolen have been made into a television series which you can catch replaying on SYFY or SPACE. I have to admit that after reading both books I binge watched the entire series.
If you truly enjoy dark and dangerous supernatural stories The Other World Series is for you. I’ve loved the first two novels and plan on reading more.
