"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"
I received this from NetGalley for review. Stolen Away is told from the point of views from the 2 main female characters Eloise and Jo. Eloise has always lived a normal life, never knowing her aunts weird past. She is kidnapped by the faery king in order for her aunt to give back the king's crown. Its always the classic tale of good versus evil. I loved the characters.
It reminded me of The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa.
4/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
