Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of her mother's murder, Paige Winterbourne broke with the elite, ultraconservative American Coven of Witches. Now her goal is to start a new coven for a new generation.

But while Paige pitches her vision to uptight 30-something witches in business suits, a more urgent matter commands her attention. Someone is murdering the teenage offspring of the underworld's most influential cabals - a circle of families that makes the mob look like amateurs. And none is more powerful than the Cortez Cabal, a faction Paige is intimately acquainted with.

Lucas Cortez, the rebel son and unwilling heir, is none other than her boyfriend. But love isn't blind, and Paige has her eyes wide open as she is drawn into a hunt for an unnatural-born killer. Pitted against shamans, demons, and goons, it's a battle chilling enough to make a wild young woman grow up in a hurry - if she gets the chance.

good book

This book is very good. I loved the characters, the story was well paced. There was plenty of action and twists and turns. Its very different from other books in the series, which keeps the series fresh. I love the dynamic between Lucas, Paige and Benicio. I hated the voice of the narrator. She sounds like an old woman with a smoking habit. Not a bad habit, just a light one. I wish I hadn't bought the next book in the series until after I had heard the narrator.

Some of the best reading I've yet heard.

Laural Merlington has a way of bringing the characters to life like no other narrator I have yet listened to.

I'm going to go find what else she narrates.

What the hell?

This was heartbreaking to listen to. I’m not sure who’s idea it was to hire this narrator but she was terrible. Every female character was given the same weird airy pixie voice. Every male the same attempt to sound deep and sonorous. An abject failure. This is my favorite book in this series and this narrator completely ruined it. The bad voicing and lack of comedic inflection destroys all of the humor. Not impressed. Next time make sure the narrator has an energy that matches the writing

Give it a chance WARNING “mild spoilers from Stolen”

I admit, much like other readers I did not like this book to begin with, however I think that it is due to the fact that the first two books are about Clay and Elena. You fall in love with those two characters, become engrossed in their world and you can’t wait to read more about them....then all of a sudden Armstrong switches gears and starts writing about this new character, Paige, a character that you not only learn to despise in Stolen but you learn to despise her through the eyes of two of your most beloved characters. That doesn’t make for a very warm welcome to a story that is written all about her, and not just her, she has a young ward who acts like a spoiled brat. It’s hard to think that you will enjoy such a story. I kept reading, and read all the books, then I read them all over again, and now I am “reading” them again through audiobook. I love all of the characters. You will learn to love Paige as she grows up and Armstrong flushes her out a bit. She becomes less annoying and so does Savannah. I’m so happy that Armstrong weaved such an intricate world where we have tons of characters intertwined into one big huge story. This story is part of that bigger story, it’s a puzzle piece that eventually makes one big huge puzzle. Give it a chance. Armstrong’s Otherworld is worth diving into no matter which direction it goes in. As far as the audiobook goes, this narrator is not as great as the one who read Bitten, but MUCH better than the one who read Stolen. Except for a small few it looks as though she is the one they have chosen to read the rest of the series so you got to learn to like her if you’re gonna listen to it on audiobook.

Action packed

Great story that made me want to know what happened next all the way through. I lost a lot of sleep trying to find out what happened next. lol I am a fan of Elaina and Clay so I put off getting this book. I'm glad I finally got it. It was worth it.

Paige & Lucas Investigate Together

This story is way more satisfying than Dime Store Magic. The characters' actions & dialogue are more intelligent & consistent within the world Armstrong has created. Paige only has 1-2 TSTL moments. She & Lucas work to solve a murder mystery & have the beginnings of a partnership in investigation. We get a more in-depth look at the Supernatural world & the Cabals. Merlington does a decent job with narration.

decent story, annoying narrator.

Another reasonably good addition to a fun series, but you have to have a high level of tolerance or an abnormal boredom level to rate the narrator as anything other than annoying. the fake "laughs" are enough to make you cringe over wanting to see what happens next. I eventually grew accustomed to being annoyed for sake of the story, but wow, really... get somebody else to perform.. This poor girl is painful.
