It was in Bitten, Kelley Armstrong’s debut novel, that thirty-year-old Elena Michaels came to terms with her feral appetites and claimed the proud identity of a beautiful, successful woman—and the only living female werewolf.
In Stolen, on a mission for her own elite pack, she is lured into the net of ruthless Internet billionaire Tyrone Winsloe, who has funded a bogus scientific investigation of the "other races" and their supernatural powers. Kidnapped and studied in his underground lab deep in the Maine woods, these paranormals—witches, vampires, shamans, werewolves—are then released and hunted to the death in a real-world video game. But when Winsloe captures Elena, he finally meets his match.
I really enjoyed Stolen, more than Bitten, I think. I love the world the author is creating and can't wait to learn more about it. I was a bit ambivalent about Clay and Elena's relationship even after all the events in Bitten, but it was here that I really got a good idea of how things are between them. Dunno why, but there you go.
I wish the next books involved Elena, but I think I can handle reading about Paige in the next book, even though I didn't particularly like her here.
So...if you want a great book with supernatural creatures, this is a good one. Hell, pick up Bitten, too.
Peel, peel, peel (no, I'm not actually peeling my skin, it's peeling by itself just fine). I feel like there are great sheets of dead skin on my arms just waiting to come off. I will wait, even though it looks nasty, because I'm sick of pain. And new skin hurts. I am so going to vaccuum every room in my house when this is done. Mother dearest came to the rescue yesterday with the itch problem. Ah...I'm in love with baking soda now. It may not look pretty, but dang, it did the trick better than anything else I tried.
Going to the Minnesota Zoo this weekend, so will make sure to slather on lots of sunscreen.
And on to other things, I really need to do some blog maintenance. My tbr list and books read on the sidebar are so out of date. Yikes!
