Dusty Reads: (#9)

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme hosted by Giselle at .Xpresso Reads where we feature a book that has been sitting unread on our shelf for a long time.

My pick this week:
Author: Alyxandra Harvey
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Publisher: Walker Childrens

Goodreads | Barnes & Noble | Amazon

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.

  1. Ohh, I'm ashamed to admit I'd almost forgotten about this one! I've been really curious about it. Hope you'll get to read it soon!

    1. Don't be ashamed cos i forgot it too...lol the story is interesting though

  2. This sounds really good! I love stories with faeries in them :)

  3. Stolen Away started off pretty slow for me. The beginning didn't really hold my interest. There were even a couple of parts I had to go back and re-read. I remember thinking that I was disappointed because I love Alyxandra Harvey's Drake Chronicles series so much. I didn't really care about any of the characters at first either. But it did pick up. And by the end, I was invested in the story.

    I never really cared about Eloise. Yeah, she was the main character but there was nothing about her that I liked (or disliked for that matter). But I really liked Jo. She was clumsy and sweet and flirty and had a love of all things British. Yeah, she was my favorite. And she had spunk to her!
