Publisher's Summary

Their marriage will save the world...if they don't kill each other first.

Dragged to the Underworld by the elven shadow king, Kynan, Maren fights to escape. But then she learns she's the legendary seer of the underworld, that her power can help save the world, and that the shadow king might not be the monster she once thought.

But before their union is made official, another lord steps in.

Trapped in a deadly power struggle with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Maren learns what true evil—and true passion—looks like.

She learns just how much power is within her. And, the hardest lesson of all: all is fair in love, war, and saving the world.

Stolen by the Shadow King is a passionate enemies-to-lovers fantasy with just the right amount of sweet spice. This epic story of found family, blossoming magical powers, and true love is the first book in the Kingdoms of Lore: Underworld series.

This is a big NOPE for me.

Oh boy... Well I decided to give this book a try after seeing it on booktok. It was a disappointment and not at all what I thought I was getting. To start with the book takes place in the same world as previous books and it says you can read it without having read her other books. I respectfully disagree. There are a TON of characters from previous books not to mention plot points that obviously reference previous books. Now for the story... One of my biggest pet peeves with books is when there isn't enough motivation for the decisions being made. This book is basically the manual for this issue, like the MMC just suddenly decides that the FMC is ok and kinda cute. Nothing happens to motivate this change after he literally locks her away after kidnapping her. There are so many plot points that seem to come out of nowhere and I hated it. This book was also advertised as a spicer read, it's not. Literally, nothing happens. Mild kissing, oooh so scandalous. This book is so confused about what it actually is, it tried to be a Hades/ Persephone and/or Beauty and the Beast retelling for the first 25% of the book then just throws all that out the window. Honestly, if you're looking for a fantasy romance with common tropes such as...
✅ One bed
✅ Enemies to lovers
✅ One horse
✅ Love triangle (kinda)
✅ Shadow hands
There are much better books out there than this one to cover those tropes.
