Book Review Blurb: Stolen by Marlena Frank

I was highly intrigued by the blurb and the cover, and the first half of the book was fascinating with great world-building and an interesting plot and cast of characters. But things started to flutter about a bit after that, and seemed to lose focus and I started struggling with it a little… By the final chapters I was more or less back in the story, until things stopped (as opposed to ended). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the ending in a multi-series book is a very important and delicate thing – you can’t just stop in the middle of the story. This one wasn’t as abrupt as some, but still felt more like a break between chapters than a break between books… still, generally speaking I found the world and the characters engaging and entertaining and I would probably give the second book ago, with the hopes that now that everything has been introduced the plot will tighten a little and the pacing even out a bit.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for my review copy.
