Stolen by Kelley Armstrong
Women of the Otherworld Series #2
After coming to terms with who and what she is, Elena Michaels is back living at Stonehaven with her mate, Clay. However she hardly has time to settle before her world is turned upside down when she finds out there are many more supernaturals in the world besides just werewolves. Witches, Half-Demons, Shamans, and Vampires are just a few of these races, and they have a governing body called the Council. Someone is kidnapping supernaturals and the Council calls on the werewolves to help. However reluctant they may be to get involved, Elena's conscience in the end prevails. The Pack sets out to investigate these kidnappings, and find a few of the thugs. However, Elena soon finds herself in the hands of the captors and it becomes a fight for her life as well as some new friends along the way.
This book touches on things that I think would be a real issue for supernaturals if they existed. The first thing humans would want to do would be to experiment on these supernaturals, and that is exactly what the captors in this book are doing. The leader of this project wasn't quite enough of a menace for my tastes, but in the end his arrogance does make his character believable. The book was mostly lacking the great dynamic between Clay and Elena from the previous book. This is of course understandable considering they were apart most of the book, but I found I missed it. Elena hold true to her strong kick-ass character throughout this book and even in the roughest of situations she never breaks down. I absolutely love the cover because it fits Elena perfectly; its mysterious, but sensual as well.
