Publisher's Summary

It was in Bitten, Kelley Armstrong's debut novel, that 30-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.

great story...wrong choice for narrator

I had decided to listen to all of the "Women (and Men) of the Otherworld" series by Kelley Armstrong, after listening and enjoying her first book "Bitten." The pace was right, the story enticing and clever and the charactors were well developed. Armstrong continued with character development, although this book could have probably been half as long as it was. There were so many times that I just wanted to fast forward through some dull prose that turned out not to have a thing to do with the ending of the story, but I hung in there, hoping it would pick up towards the end, which it did.

I cannot give this book the four stars that it could have earned, because this review is for the audio version of the book, and that was poor. The choice of Nell Canning to read was a mistake. A red flag went up when she read the title of the book, and said "women of the underworld" instead of "women of the otherworld."

Her interpretation of Elena was way off, having given her a macho, rough voice instead of the feminine voice that Aasne Vigesaa had given her in the first book. As another reviewer stated, her southern accent of Clay makes him sound like a country bumpkin instead of an educated college professor, and she just can't pull off Jeramy's command in his role as pack leader.

The producers are the ones who are guilty of putting the wrong narrator in the studio, and really need to make it right. I will probably listen to the rest of the series, but I hope the choice of narrators is better.

Narrator choice is awful

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nell Canning?

Anyone!

Any additional comments?

I was so excited to listen to this book, as I really enjoyed the first book in the series. I don't like when a series switches narrators, but this was awful. Nell Canning must be... older. It sounds like my grandmother is reading to me and this is not that kind of book. She makes the main character sound like an old man. Trying to get through the book so that I can continue the series, but this is rough :(

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

This might be my favorite book in this series. I have listened to it at least 3 times and It gets better each time. I love that we get more of Elena, Clay & Jeremy but also so much more. In this book we are introduces to witches, demons, shaman, vampires, etc. I loved all the action in this book and surprisingly the magic which is odd cause I normally do not like witches or magic in books at all. This book is my one exception. I love how graphic the author is, even if it's a little gory sometimes but it really puts you into the story. The introduction of Paige, Adam & Savannah is a big deal for the series. I'm so excited to spend the next couple weeks with these characters again!

The narrator on this book was good but it's hard to not have a hard time with a narrator change since now all the character voices are different.

awful narrator

Would you try another book from Kelley Armstrong and/or Nell Canning?

Kelly, yes. Nell, hell no.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nell Canning’s performances?

Never

Any additional comments?

I am struggling to enjoy this book with such a horrible narrator.

good story, wrong narrator!

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator of Bitten was brilliant. They should have used the same one for this book!!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I think I could have listened all in one day but the narration was not nearly as good as Bitten. Her "Elaina voice" was terrible. Almost manly

Really didn't like the narrator!

Once again in a book series, for some reason the publisher decided to change the narrator, which for me if very distracting.

I enjoyed Aasne Vigesaa from Bitten. She had a much better range for the characters.

This narrator attempts of a southern accent for Clay is way off, she made him sound like county bumpkin, (when he had an accent at all) not a smooth southern sexy anthropologist that came across in Bitten.
I wish if they need to switch narrators they would try to get someone that matched the style of the previous narrator. For me it is really distracting. Especially when you have the same characters.
I'm only part way thru Stolen, but so far I liked Bitten much better. I hope it gets better.

The story is great, narrator ruins it....

Where does Stolen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story is actually decent and if you listened to book one you fell in love with elana and clay and Jeremy but this book is ruined by the narrator and the characters were just not there...it was just a book read. So sad and disappointed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stolen?

Elana remains strong and brave but sounds like a little boy in this book....I try to remember her how she sounded in book 1.

What three words best describe Nell Canning’s voice?

All I can picture is a pencil....stiff and dull.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I am glad I listened to the story and I will continue with the series because I love Elana and Clay....I do see the remaining series has a different narrator...thank goodness!

I'm not complaining.

After I finished this book, I read all of the reviews and was surprised by how bad the reviews for this book were. While I did think the narrator was a bit wrong in voice, and accents, she was not that bad, and got the inflections and tone right in my opinion. I might be the only one who liked this book better then the first. ??? I have no idea what makes me different from the majority of people, but there it is.

Couldn't finish it!

I gave up listening just couldn't listen to the narrator. It was extremely disappointing after listening to Bitten which was beautifully done!

Awful Narration!!!

What did you like best about Stolen? What did you like least?

The story is good. . . The narration is so horrible I cannot finish it.

How could the performance have been better?

Choose another narrator - it ruined the whole experience.

Was Stolen worth the listening time?

NO!!!
