It's so hard to believe that we are so close to half way through the year! I am very close to meeting half of my reading goal. Currently hitting that snag. I hope everyone else I close to their goals!

Summary: Alyxandra Harvey brings her trademark romance and adventure to the world of Faery
For seventeen years, Eloise Hart had no idea the world of Faery even existed. Now she has been abducted and trapped in the Rath of Lord Strahan, King of Faery. Strahan was only meant to rule for seven years, as Faery tradition dictates, and then give up his crown to another. But he won't comply, and now chaos threatens both worlds. The only one who can break his stranglehold on the Faery court is his wife ... Eloise's aunt Antonia. Using Eloise to lure Antonia, Strahan captures his wife, desperate to end the only threat to his reign. Now Eloise must become the rescuer. Together with her best friends Jo and Devin, she must forge alliances with other Fae, including a gorgeous protector named Lucas, and Strahan's mysterious son, Eldric—who may or may not betray them.

Review: Stolen away was pretty amazing the characters, the fight scenes, the back story. It was all breath taking Alyxandra doesn't disappoint. Sadly, I just couldn't get the Iron Fey series out of my head while I read this. Julie Kagawa writes books no one can forget. I guess it was a good thing I read that series before I read this book though because it helped me understand all the Fey rules a lot better, coming into this book. Maybe it was to soon for another fey book... Maybe not. Alyxandra make this book and this story her own. She has her own twist and her own voice. Although I should say if you don't know much about fey I suggest you read the Iron Fey Series first, but it's up to you! I quiet liked this book. It had the right amount of spunk and attitude. It was sort of a new age thing, with real problems, goofy character's that can remind us of people we know and a story line we can all love.
