Stolen: Women of the Otherworld, Book IIby Kelley Armstrong
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"[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
"Much Darwinian classification of the varied species precedes Elena's capture and imprisonment, then all that follows. Richly done." Kirkus Reviews
"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
"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
The fierce and fascinating werewolf heroine of Bitten faces a deadly new threat — human, cyber, and demonic.
"A taut, sensual thriller that grips from the first page. Elena Michales is at once sublime and sympathetic, a modern heroine who shows that real women bite back." -Karin Slaughter, The New York Times
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.
