Stolen: Women of the Otherworld, Book II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

International acclaim for Kelley Armstrong's sophisticated debut novel, Bitten, is steadily growing. It was in Bitten that thirty-year-old Elena Michaels came to terms with her feral appetites and claimed the proud identity of a beautiful, successful woman-and the only living female werewolf.

In Stolen, on a mission for her own elite pack, she is lured into the net of ruthless Internet billionaire Tyrone Winsloe, who has funded a bogus scientific investigation of the "other races" and their supernatural powers. Kidnapped and studied in his underground lab deep in the Maine woods, these paranormals-witches, vampires, shamans, werewolves-are then released and hunted to the death in a real-world video game. But when Winsloe captures Elena, he meets his match.

Suspenseful, chilling, and witty, Stolen is a novel of rich and amazing versatility.

Review:

"[A] sure-footed follow-up to Bitten....Armstrong leavens the narrative with brisk action and intriguing dollops of werewolf culture....The sassy, pumped-up Elena makes a perfect hardboiled horror heroine..." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Much Darwinian classification of the varied species precedes Elena's capture and imprisonment, then all that follows. Richly done." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Evoking an action comic book, this will appeal mainly to television viewers who tire of commercials long enough to bother reading. Not recommended." Library Journal

Review:

"Kelley Armstrong delivers a taut, sensual thriller that grips from the first page. Elena Michaels is at once sublime and sympathetic, a modern heroine who shows that real women bite back." Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Blindsighted and Kisscut

Synopsis:

The fierce and fascinating werewolf heroine of Bitten faces a deadly new threat — human, cyber, and demonic.

In Book 2 of the Women of the Otherworld series, Elena Michaels is back-and she has company. Lending a mission of vampires, demons, shamans, and witches, Elena is lured into the net of ruthless Internet billionaire Tyrone Winsloe, who is well on his way to amassing a private collection of supernaturals. He plans to harness their powers for himself-even if it means killing them.

For Elena, kidnapped and imprisoned deep underground, unable to tell her friends from her enemies, choosing the right allies is a matter of life and death.
