    Riveting Read

    I was pleasantly surprised by how drawn in to the characters and story I became right from the beginning. I must admit that this genre is not my normal style of reading. It truly was a page turner for me as I could not wait to see what was going to happen next. I loved how the author moved back and forth from then and now really chuckled at the mustangs.
    I truly hope this is just the first book of many as these characters are intruguing and complex.
    Any chance it would become a TV series?
    Many thanks to my friend who recommended it.

    I know that I have been hooked on a story when I find the characters running around in my head till I get to the end. I truly know that it has become an intricate part of my reality when I wonder what next will become of those within the story once I close the cover and move onto the next book. 
    Did Brendan survive and at what cost. Will Edward and Caitlin find a life with Fiona? Oh and what will become of the Fae  
    The characters that he has filled the book with are rich, full and very believable. You will rally behind each of them as they find their
    way. 
    I must admit that what drew me to this book was the mention of my home Boston MA. How could I resist. So glad I did not. I suggest to one and all take the chance step up and out of your world, slip into that which Bishop O'Connell has put into words. 
    Join with me as I wonder what is going on with those characters running around in my head. Till we meet once more.

    The Stolen was an intricately woven story that unfolds magnificently before your eyes.




    Caitlin is attacked by fairies and is saved by Fian, a fae outcast. They quickly discover that the fairie attacked had much more sinister motive...which leads to Caitlin's daughter Fiona kidnapped. Fian jumps on board to help Caitlin. Combined, they recruiting more assistance from their friends which ends up giving them a very unique band of allies. Can they uncover the nefarious plot before its too late to save Fiona?




    This story had a plot riddled with unexpected twists and turns. The characters each have their own baggage that they must traverse while trying to uncover the who and why behind the kidnapping. 




    The author takes an unique angle to add some romantic interest and it wasn't with the characters I suspected. 




    The Stolen was an entertaining, darker fantasy. I found the characters faced real emotional issues even though they are mythical creatures of power. A modern day fairy tale, The Stolen was a great read.

    Good read

    This was well written with an interesting storyline and more interesting characters. Part mystery and part fantasy, with a tiny bit of romance thrown in too. I also liked how old fairy tale stories and characters were woven in. It made the reader feel like it could happen. Very good book.

    This modern faerie tale for grown-ups is action, adventure & magic rolled into one.

    With hardly time for a breath, the story thunders along, full of otherworldly creatures, often monstrous and dangerous, sometimes helpful to humans, frequently not. Plenty of fighting, weaponry, spells, courage and fear, and above all love. I did figure out for myself why Fiona is stolen, and by whom. Given the ending, I wonder if there will be a sequel...what happened to Brendan, what will happen to Fiona & Caitlin & Edward? And Dante deserves his own story too. There is a useful glossary of the Celtic words & phrases at the back of the book, by the way.

    The Stolen: a faerie tale

    This was an awesome book.I think this is one of the best mystery book I have ever read. I liked it. Did any of you like it? I hope you did because I think it is good. I think the author did really good. I think it should be a newbery award. If only more people read this book. Ithink the librarians should put it on the shelves. They would have alot of people going to their library. Atleast more than they do now.
