Stolen By Kelley Armstrong
“Women of the Otherworld” book 2
I think I have fallen in love with Kelley’s style of writing, Elena and Clay, and werewolves!! I read this book in 2 days. It struck me afterword that this could have been a boring book. Lots of drama, dialog, and some action. But Kelley’s writing plus Elena’s attitude make it into a attention-grabbing book!!
I love Elena! She is not really tom-boyish but more wild wolf. I love how Bauer sums it up “This isn’t me. This body, this personality. It’s not me. I don’t use this language. I don’t throw tantrums. I don’t plead for my life. But do you know what’s worse? I’m still here, trapped inside, looking out.” I feel like that is Elena, yes she has a wild side considering her black childhood but being a part-time wolf just makes it strong. She thinks, acts, feels wolf-like most times.
Speaking of Bauer -why do people do something dumb then blame others?? Bauer was a influential, wealthy girl who was bored. She looked at Elena’s life, thought it fantastic and glamorous. So she changes herself into a werewolf, the blames Elena. *ugh stupid person* However, I was actually excited to see another female werewolf in the story. Then she goes and gets shot in the head trying to escape as a wolf. *more dumb stuff* :~
ANYWAY I bet you want to know the story. There is a group of wealthy people who are “collecting” supernatural beings -vampires, witches, werewolves. Elena is one of those who gets kidnapped. She eventually escapes, meets up with the rest of her pack and the leader of the “coven”. The Coven is a group of witches. Ruth and Paige are the leaders. Ruth, too, gets kidnapped yet dies in captivity therefore Paige becomes a leader. Together Clay, Jeramey, Elena, Paige, Adam and a few others break back into he compound, kill everyone, and rescue the little girl Savannah -she is a witch. That is the bare bones of the story!!
An excellent read! Can’t wait for the next one!
