Stolen: Women Of The Otherworld

by Kelley Armstrong

Random House of Canada | August 25, 2009 | Trade Paperback

Stolen: Women Of The Otherworld is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 16.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this! This is the second book in the series. I quite enjoyed it and enjoyed it more and more the further and further I got into the book. I look forward to getting the next to dive into more of what happens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stolen This is the second book in the Women of the Otherworld series and continues Elena Michaels story. She is the only female werewolf in the world. A rich spoiled gillizionaire, Tyrone Winsloe has decided to pick up all the 'other' types of beings and imprison them to study them and then hunt them off. Elena is caught and spends much of her time in captivity trying to figure out how to escape. Clay, the werewolf who turned her and loves her also plots for her escape. This is a very dark and gruesome story with lots of graphic details. However they did not get in the way of the telling of the story for me and made for an interesting read. I thought the ending was very apropos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stole All My Time Man, these books are addicting. I know that I read them each in a day the first time around, but what I forgot was the pull these books have! Every time I put Stolen down I was drawn to pick it right back up again! I may have known what would happen next, but I was captivated nonetheless. Kelley Armstrong, you are one amazing author. Stolen introduces readers to the real Otherworld, which is populated with much more than just werewolves. Witches, necromancers, half-demons, sorcerers, shamans, and even vampires all exist in this story, and it throws Elena and the Pack for a bit of a loop. I really liked that Armstrong added all these supernatural races to the mix, and enjoyed learning about them in this novel. I remember being a bit disappointed with Stolen the first time I read it because there wasn't enough Clay (hey, what can I say, I love that Southern drawl!). This time, I really loved being able to learn more about Elena, and see her develop as a character. I enjoyed watching her stand up for herself, and keep her head together (for the most part) when in such an intense situation. I loved that she was calculating and strong, always looking for a way out of her peridcament instead of just accepting her fate. I felt myself being more passionately angry over what Elena was subjected through at the hands of these twisted scientists, and warped mogul. I just kept waiting for the tables to be turned on them, and hoped Elena would be the one to do it. As I said earlier, I loved that Kelley Armstrong added in a whole range of other supernaturals, but I wasn't a huge fan of Paige the first time around. I found her to be very bossy and irritating and she just generally rubbed me the wrong way. My, how my view of her has changed because this time reading it, I adored her. Yes, she was still over-bearing and haughty but at the same time she was fierce and rebellious. I could see how strong and passionate she was about being a witch and doing the right thing, which made me really love her. I also happened to adore small and defiant Savannah, who despite being twelve, never seemed to back down. Stolen was the amazing, action-packed follow-up that I had been hoping for and much more. I loved the new characters, passionately hated the villains, and had an awesome protagonist to root for. Another amazing installment in one of my all-time favorite series! - Ciara (Lost at Midnight)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I admit I started with her darker power series and then read her adult books. All the ones I've read are awesome and I highly recommend them. If you like Kim Harrison or Patricia Briggs you'll be happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suspenseful!! I found this book an excellent read. There were times while they were captured that I just wanted them to get on with it. There was a lot of detail and I found myself skimming some pages rather then reading them (Only like 3 pages to be presice). There was a lot of killing in this book but at the end of the day the ones that died mostly had it coming! All that being said I really did enjoy this book because it gave an excellent description of the characters yet to come in the next books. There were many times that I just wanted to reach in and grab Winsloe by the throat!! This book made me feel many emotions and can't wait to get back to Elena and Clays story and see what becomes of her pack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "way better than bitten" i had bought bitten and stolen together, because they were on sale at coles. i read bitten fairly quickly, because it was such an easy read. but the plot and characters did not do anything for me. i could connect with elena, jeremy or clayton. the only one i liked was her human boyfriend. as well bitten did not offer any capture and intensity....i felt it dragged on. i decided to prolong reading stolen thinking it would be too similar to bitten. i bought the entire sookie stackhouse series instead and regret it. i didn't get in that series as well. i decided to go back to kelley armstrong's series and started stolen. to my surprise i was hooked after the first chapter. i thought it was much more interesting than bitten. maybe because of the introduction of other characters (witches, sorcerers, voodoon, half demons) or the concept of being kidnapped in & placed in an experiment peaked my interest. i thoroughly enjoyed this book much more. the plot was great with a few surprises and it was way funnier than bitten. i was reading a few lines and reread them, because they were so funny. i just bought dime store magic, which i hesitated for one hour in chapters, because i'm not sure if i like paige and wanted to learn more about her. at the same time i really like savannah, so may be that is what pursued me to purchase number 3. after stolen i love elena she is my favorite and i wished kelley would have done the 3rd book with elena. maybe i'm boring but i enjoy sticking to the same protagonist. at the same time i like how the series has different narrators...so maybe i should not complain. loved this book....i hope the rest are just as exciting page turning and humorous.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmmm, what went wrong? After the rush and trill of reading Bitten I felt rather let down by the confused and chaotic mess that is Stolen. I think where this novel falls short is that it is a "platform" novel, meant to introduce avid fans to characters that will no doubt appear in later novels, but I think that Ms. Armstrong's attempts to get too much information into this novel and in the process looses the pace and intrigue that was in Bitten. Even the endding left me wondering if I really wanted to read the next book in this series - But I am an avid fan, and a lover of books that allude to witches and witchcraft, so I will read the next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I discovered this series when I just happened to pick up Bitten at the cash of the bookstore one day and I'm glad I did! The series is way better than I expected and I've been lending them to all my friends who are fans of Twilight or the Sookie Stackhouse series! I HIGHLY recommend to anyone else who is fans of those series I just mentioned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! really enjoyed this book. I love that its by a Canadian author....I also LOVE that they go to New Brunswick!!!! REPRESENT!!! Haha. The book was very suspenseful the whole time. It reminded me of The Host except 100 times better and with no aliens. But the captive thing. At least in this one, unlike the host, things actually happened in most chapters, not just threatened to happen or talked about maybe happening. Does that make sense? I had a hard time putting it down. I am definitly finishing the rest of the Women of the Otherworld series. Started Dime Store Magic this morning. Great book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite Enjoyable I really enjoyed this 2nd book in the Women of the Otherworld series. It did take longer to pick up than Bitten but I found the ending of this installment more suspenseful and action filled... Perhaps a bit too action filled for some readers though. There was an awful lot of killing in this book. I don't think i'd be exaggerating if I said there were 20 people murdered.. To be fair, the majority of them were "bad guys" but even so... I really liked this sequel but I can't say I loved it. I am hopeful that the proceeding books in this series will only get better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bark at the Moon Stolen is the 2nd book in Kelley Armstrong's "Women of the Otherworld" series. In this book we continue the story of Elena. She is the only female werewolf in existence, who was bitten by her lover. She is the pack investigator and she tracks down stories of "werewolves’ sightings". She also keeps track of non-pack wolves so that they do not kill too many humans and have the race exposed. While investigating "werewolves sightings” Elena meets two female witches, who tell her not only that witches exist but also vamps, demons, necromancers and more. They also tell her they sit on a supernatural "board" kind of like the United Nations and want wolves on the board. They tell Elena that they are requesting the assistance of the wolves to help find missing supernatural’s. Supernaturals have been kidnapped and they suspect computer billionaire Ty Winsloe. They believe they are being kidnapped for science experiments While investigating Elena is kidnapped by Winsloe's people. She wakes up and finds herself in a prison with many different supernaturals. Elena will not give up without a fight and knows her pack will come and find her. But she soon realizes she is in a very remote area and that after they experiment on the supernaturals, Winsloe likes to hunt them like animals. Elena knows her days are numbered and needs to get out before it's too late. This was a great follow up to the first book Bitten. I love the character of Elena and love how Armstrong writes her. I really liked the introduction of other supernatural’s especially Paige Winterbourne. I know the next 2 books in the series will be narrated by her and I can't wait. This was a great sequel and looking forward to more in the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 2nd installment! After discover the world of Elena and the Stonehaven werewolves in Bitten, book one of in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series, I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into Stolen, the second Elena story in the series. In this second novel, Armstrong smartly takes the characters out of their home setting allowing a completely new type of mystery to take place. Instead of having another plot center around Stonehaven and keeping Elena's secret, the events in Stolen allow for a much broader story to develop. By creating the mystery around a new set of characters and in a new location, the universe that has been created in Bitten expands to include a greater assortment of supernatural beings, and the central mystery is much more interesting for it. We're also introduced to some of the other Women of the Underworld as Elena discovers new beings that are populating her universe. Ironically, Elena (the werewolf!) has a hard time believing in witches, vampires, shamans and demons when she first encounters them, but this actually adds to the realism of this series, as it allows you to be convinced of their existence along with Elena. Throughout Stolen, we're never quite sure who to trust and who is actually good or bad, which of course makes for a great story! Overall I found Stolen to be a gripping and fast paced read, filled with interesting characters. I kind of missed getting know more about Clayton, Jeremy and the other werewolves, but I loved getting to know Paige, Ruth, Savanah, Adam & Leah. And even though Elena won't be the narrator of the next book in the Women of the Otherworld series, I'm looking forward to reading Dime Store Magic which is told from Paige's point of view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED this Book!!! Kelley Armstrong has done it again. I loved this book. I started it immediately after I finished Bitten. Stolen like Bitten was full of romance, action, and mystery. Although in this book we have more than just werewolves and we meet a mixture of supernaturals. This is a fast paced high action novel and will keep you interested until the very last page. I could not put this book down. I read it in one day and loved it and highly recommend it. In this book Elena world suddenly becomes much bigger: She is suddenly made aware of the existence of whiches, sorcerers, deamons, half-demons, vampires and then gets kidnapped by a psycho man who collects supernaturals. During most of the novel we find Elena meeting and fighting these other supernaturals for survival. Once Elena escapes and reunites with Clay and her pack we are let on the hunt to settle the score for Elena and to rescue the other supernaturals she was forced to leave behind in order to escape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutley enthralling I thought this book was an absolutely amazing sequel in the series. It kept me right on edge of my seat and when we were introduced to winsloe after his character got developed a bit farther i was ready to punch him along side of elena. Kelley armstrong continues to ensnare me in her well developed relationships, characters, story line and plot. i loved it and it's action packed, surprising plot. CAN NOT WAIT to go pick up teh third and hope it holds to the standards presented in these 2 books

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.
