Book Review: Stolen by Kelley Armstrong

4.5 out of 5 stars

It's time to bite back...Elena Michaels is a wanted woman. She hasn't done anything wrong. Well, not recently, anyway. But ten years ago her lover turned her into a werewolf: the only female werewolf in the world, in fact. And now, just as she's finally coming to terms with this rather startling situation, a group of scientists learns of her existence. They're hunting her down, and Elena is about to run straight into their trap. But they haven't reckoned on Elena's adoptive family, her Pack, who will stop at nothing to get her back. They haven't reckoned on Elena herself, either, and that's a big mistake...

My Review:
Ok so some people know that I did not really like the first one in the series all that much, but due to Charm saying to read the second I did, and I do not regret it. I took me a while to pick up the book and I tried and tried to stay away from it, I did not want another bore fest like I did with the first. But once I started I started to enjoy it.

I bonded with the characters in this book. I found Elena to be couragous, and a character that I was starting to really like, as I was with Clayton. Original story with lots of action and a few twists and turns to boot. I will be honest I did click the ending and Who the baddies were, so to speak. but I still found it entertaining and gripping in many many ways. This for me, showed off Armstrong's writing abilities, which for me I felt was lacking somewhat in the previous book, she was able to add in many new characters in this book and yet I was not lost in anyway. Now I am not saying that the book was a simple plot with non complex character's, Oh no! Far from that, She was able to describe each character so well, that I was truely sucked in (Which I did not find with Bitten) I was never confused with who was who, I just knew.

Apart from a few bits, where I rolled my eyes. I loved it. Oh also I found one character to seem out of place. As I found cassandra an interesting character at the beginning (Come on she is a vampire :lol: ) I don't get where I character was heading, she did nothing apart from make a play at Clay, I do hope that there is more too her, if not then I do feel that was a rather pointless character. I will be reading the next one thats for sure, yet I have a horrible feeling that just as I started to like Elena and Clay, they are not going to be so present in the next couple of books :)
