Publisher's Summary

"The Lucretias always take what they want. And that includes me." Cayla was told she had nothing to fear from the Lucretias - at least, not more than anyone else in the city. Her aunt and uncle paid their tithes on time, looked the other way when witnessing crimes, and never caused any trouble. When the sirens blare at Cayla's school, she knows that someone has crossed the Lucretias, and the crime family is there to take their vengeance. Huddled with her classmates, she waits for the inevitable to pass. Except when the Lucretias knock down the door to her own classroom, Jon Lucretia, heir to the dark dynasty, catches sight of Cayla - and decides to claim her as his own. Taken as a prisoner into their opulent and guarded estate, Cayla must decide how to fight for her life, and her heart....

    I tried to like the book but I had a hard time following the story. The only good thing for me is the narrator. Her voice and by the way she read the parts of the different characters are very good.

    Story
    "Suprisingly Good"

    I was given a copy of this Audible book in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Blast.

    This book took me by surprise... several times. The first half seemed to be a fairly typical YA with a somewhat interesting plot line. But then the twists and turns start happening and the story turned into something so much more. At times I found myself wondering if this was a bit too full on to be a YA.

    All I can say is don't listen to this book thinking you are going to get some typical teen romance or you will be sorely disappointed. This book is violent, with unlikable and cruel characters and a surprisingly savvy female protagonist who will do anything to survive the situation she finds herself in.

    I also enjoyed the narration and found the performance easy to listen to.

    Story
    "Couldn't Stop Listening!!"
    Where does Stolen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was the best audio book I have ever listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Book was very well written. When Cayla told her story to Ia, it sucked me right in and emotionally grabbed me. The twist, however, was incredible!! Totally sucker punched me.

    Margaret Windsor was phenomenal and I would read/listen to any of her novels -- Stolen is a "sit on the edge of your seat" kinda book, coupled with great writing and superior storytelling from the narrator.


    What does Andrea Emmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This was a book I didn't want to put down.

    Andrea's ability to emotionally invest herself into the characters made ME want to immerse myself into the audio book and the world she presents. Her narration brought everything to life and totally threw me into the story and wouldn't let me go. I didn't feel like I was just a listener. I felt like a participant.

    "Interesting futuristic story"
    Any additional comments?

    I found this to be an interesting duality between what you want to happen and the reality of the situation. I have never read/listened to a story that shows the differences so easily and if you allow yourself, lets you think about what we do to ourselves in bad situations to put a rosy blush on circumstances and decisions. I enjoyed this book although I was hoping for more before an after. The audiobook reader Andrea Emmes does a fine job as narrator, she has room to improve on different voices, some of which were so outlandish that it made me laugh. Despite this I did enjoy this book.

    If you could sum up Stolen in three words, what would they be?

    This is my first book by this author. The story and editing was good. I have listened to a few audiobooks narrated by Andrea Emmes and she is becoming one of my fave.

    Story
    "One Twist After Another"
    If you could sum up Stolen in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, intriguing, surprising


    What other book might you compare Stolen to and why?

    The Guardian by Margaret Mallory because though I was in the female character's head, there was so much going on I felt slightly distanced from the story. It worked for me.


    What does Andrea Emmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really liked her expression of Cayla's thoughts. It made the end all the more believable and surprising. I loved it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was shaken with some of the things Cayla went through in the second part of the book because I could see how the characters were shaped to act as they did. I definitely breathed a sigh of relief at the end and was pleasantly surprised.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed Andrea's voice. It had just enough bass to make the character's backbone seem very real, once it showed up. I will look for more books by this Andrea Emmes.

    "Stolen... what to say!"

    Stolen was a very Unique book! I must admit I got confused a few times & I had to keep rewinding it or start a chapter over! I really had to concentrate on this book so I had to be alone & have it quiet to get it!! the Narrator was good & so was the story it's just one of those books that require more concentration!

    Story
    "Intriguing!"

    The author Margaret Windsor has written a refreshing story. Its not your normal YA genre filled with romance and the sort. I guess you can clarify this story as a YA dystopian. The a author has set the story in a time when the region is ruled by a powerful crime family. The story is written extremely well, filled with mystery, intrigue, with various twists and turns throughout. The story has cruel characters, violence, and a female protagonist that is savvy and will do whatever she must do to survive.

    Andrea Emmes has become a favorite narrator and I would call her a friend. She blows me away with the talent she has. She always does a perfect job at bringing any story she narrated to life and in such a way that you really feel like you're inside the story watching it all play out. She does a great job bringing out the emotions of the characters. She does a perfect job distinguishing each character's accent and their voices. I didn't have trouble identifying any of the characters throughout the story. Overall, a 5 🌟 rating. I received this audio from the author/narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "An interesting twist in the story."

    I loved the narration. Easy to listen to the audio version. Kayla is an interesting character. She says and does what she thinks needs to happen to survive.
