Stolen [Armstrong]

Book: Stolen
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Reason for Reading: for fun
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Review: Elena Michaels, a female werewolf, is captured by a wealthy businessman who takes supernatural beings hostage to study their behavior and then to hunt them. Elena must form bonds with fellow captives and try to escape before her boyfriend tries to rescue her and kill himself in the process.

The book started out great with a strong premise and intriguing characters. Drawn out scenes and stupid decision making by the lead character seemed to add to the length of the book but not develop the plot. With a 100 pages less, this book could have been a home run. Instead, it was too long and by the end-I didn't care what happened to Elena.

Recommend: no

Book Junkie's Grade: C
