Women of the Otherworld #2: Stolen (2003)


when Elena came across Paige who claimed to be a witch, she ignored her warning of humans kidnapping the supernaturals. she couldn't find herself believing that there were other supernaturals out there other than werewolves. however, she was soon forced to confront the truth when she was kidnapped and thrown into a transparent cell that allowed her to be studied by her captors. not only witches, there were sorcerers, half demons, even vampires. the terror didn't start with the amount of supernaturals being gathered in one place, but the greedy humans that did the collecting in thirst of new power and knowledge.

the involvement of humans and organization made the story slightly less interesting than Bitten (2001). the greed towards power and knowledge was a familiar plot used so often that it almost became predictable. fortunately, Elena's world was anything but predictable. as i was aching for action, as eager for rebellion as Elena, things started to favor her. as hateful as the sadistic billionaire Ty was, he made the the book stood out from the typical, focusing his interest and directing a giant spotlight at Elena. Stolen (2003) was like an expanded version following Bitten (2001). while Bitten (2001) focused the story solely on werewolves, Stolen (2003) introduced a wider range of supernaturals, pulling in characters i bet will appear in the coming installments.
