In the tradition of Laurell K. Hamilton, a deliciously wicked sequel to Bitten, from Canada''s new queen of suspense.

Even though she''s the world''s only female werewolf, Elena Michaels is just a regular girl at heart -- with larger than normal appetites. She sticks to three feasts a day, loves long runs in the moonlight, and has a lover who is unbelievable frustrating yet all the more sexy for his dark side. Like every regular girl, she certainly doesn''t believe in witches. Then again, when two small, ridiculously feminine women manage to hurl her against a wall, and then save her from the hunters on her tail, Elena realizes that maybe there are more things in heaven and earth than she''s dreamt of.

Vampires, demons, shamans, witches -- in Stolen they all exist, and they''re all under attack. An obsessed tycoon with a sick curiosity is well on his way to amassing a private collection of supernaturals, and plans to harness their powers for himself -- even if it means killing them. For Elena, kidnapped and imprisoned deep underground, separated from her Pack, unable to tell her friends from her enemies, choosing the right allies is a matter of life and death.

Read from the Book

Prologue He hated the forest. Hated its eternal pockets of damp and darkness. Hated its endless tangle of trees and bushes. Hated its smell of decay -- dead vegetation, dead animals, everything dying, even the living creatures incessantly pursuing their next meal, one failure away from the slow descent into death. Soon his body would be one more stink fouling the air, maybe buried, maybe left for the carrion feeders, his death postponing theirs for another day. He would die. He knew that, not with the single-minded intent of the suicidal or the hopeless despair of the doomed, but with the simple acceptance of a man who knows he is only hours from passing out of this world into the next. Here in this stinking, dark, damp hell of a place, he would die. He didn’t seek death. If he could, he’d avoid it. But he couldn’t. He’d tried, planning his breakout for days, conserving his energy, forcing himself to eat, to sleep. Then he’d escaped, surprising himself really. He’d never truly believed it would work. Of course, it hadn’t actually worked, just appeared to, like a mirage shimmering in the desert, only the oasis hadn’t turned to sand and sun, but damp and dark. He’d escaped the compound to find himself in the forest. Still hopeful, he’d run. And run. And gone nowhere. They were coming now. Hunting him. He could hear the hound baying, fast on his trail. There must be ways to trick it, but he had no idea how. Born and rai

From the Jacket

Praise for Bitten:

". . . it's as smooth as cream all the way, sure to gain fans." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[An] impressive debut thriller. . . . Kelley Armstrong is very good on the sheer exhilaration of shape-changing, of running on four feet through forests, suburban greenery and urban back alleys." -- Amazon UK

"[I]t's terrific. I'm a sucker for this kind of novel anyway, and the heroine is the most appealing I have come across in ages. It's clever, quirky, hip and funny, skating between genres with style and grace. More please!" -- Joanne Harris

'There is nothing overtly gothic about this fast-paced, sexy thriller and its model contemporary heroine -- it's just that she's a werewolf who is trying to make a go of things among humans. -- Bookseller (UK)

"A hair-raising story for the she-wolf in us all." -- Shannon Olson, author of Welcome to My Planet: Where English Is Sometimes Spoken

"Armstrong has created a breathless, sexy story . . . gorgeous and grotesque in the best sense of the word. Rumors of a sequel have never been better news." -- Boulder Weekly

"Bitten is hip and postmodern. . . . Those who enjoy the vampire books of Anne Rice, or Canadian vampire writer Nancy Kilpatrick, will love it." -- The Globe and Mail

"Fast and entertaining. . . . Surely one of the sexiest, most energetic novels published in a long time." -- The Gazette (Montreal)

"Filled with romance and supernatural intrigue, this book will surely remind readers of Anne Rice's sophisticated refurbishings of the vampire story." -- Publishers Weekly

"Wicked writing gets noticed, and ½rst-time novelist Kelley Armstrong has written a deliciously wicked book." -- Toronto Star

"Bitten is a lightning-paced, violent and completely readable entertainment that entertains loudly and abundantly." -- The Hamilton Spectator

About the Author

Kelley Armstrong lives in rural Ontario with her husband, three children and far too many pets. She is the author of Bitten, the first novel featuring Elena Michaels.
