Overview

Stealing Kathryn (Gatherers Series #2) by Jacquelyn Frank

New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank invites you to explore a strange and sensuous world of darkest desire ruled by an extraordinary being who is about to meet his earthly match. . .

Sandman. Angus. Morpheus. He is known by many names, except his true one, Adrian. When he departs his world, it is to enter the sacred space of sleep, and he is not there to sow sweet dreams. Adrian's mission is to reap the dark energy of nightmares, work that has twisted his soul as well as his once-handsome face. Now, he lives only to await the day darkness finally overcomes him. . .and to collect exquisite reminders of what he's lost. . .

But there is one treasure that stands apart. Having risked everything to obtain her, Adrian soon realizes his mistake. For Kathryn has a wholly unexpected power over him, not only for what she represents, but for what for she is: a soul with desires as strong as his own, tempered by compassion that could save Adrian from his self-made hell—or condemn them both. . .

Stealing Kathryn is full of suspense. It has many twist and turns. Adrian is a hardcore male who knows what he wants and how to get it. Kathryn is a sweet innocent women who still needs to discover herself. Together they become the people they were meant to be. The characters in the book provide plenty of action to keep you entertained. The nice and spicy romance scences keep you wanting more. The author does a good job with keeping all the information together and flowing nicely throughout the story. I overall, like the story. I only wish the ending was a little different. I would have liked to read about Kathryn taking longer to forgive Adrian. Women got to give men a hard time when their bad.

Stealing Kathryn was my introduction book to Jacquelyn Frank. The whole idea of the " gatherers" is completely new. This book takes male dominance in the right direction. Love scenes are treated as action scenes. Not sure what the other people are talking about. But this has been the best book of hers. Still waiting for this stroryline to continue its the best. If you like original ideas men and women both sensitive and strong, then this book is great. The characters are fully developed in this book. You don't have to worry about another part of the series. THIS book is GREAT by ITSELF! Highly recommended.

This book is really good. Its the first book I've read by Frank, but I def liked it. It was a great plot, far different paranormal world than I'm used to, and I loved the characters, especially Adrian. Don't skip this book, its worth reading. Even if you have read "Hunting Julian" and didn't like it, still read this one. Its a bit slow going at first, but once you get into it, you'll love it.

Stealing Kathryn is the story of Adrian, a "gatherer" from a world that thrives on energy and the human female that he "steals" from Earth. The gaterers live in a realm "beneath" that of Earth and they are not known to the humans. Each of the 6 gatherers from Beneath (as they call their home) gathers a different type of energy from various realms to bring back to their world to feed their starving people. The first book in this series did a very nice job of setting up the world with its' people, practices, beliefs, and politics and I had high hopes for this second installment. Adrian collects energy from the nightmares and fears of humans and the constant exposure to this "evil" and "twisted" energy has warped both Adrian's emotions and his physical appearance. When Adrian enters Kathryn's dreams he finds a lot of raw energy and a person that captives him for reasons he cannot comprehend. He decides to steal her from Earth and keep her for himself. The first 60 or so pages of this book bares absolutely no resemblance to the the first book in this series - in fact it seems to be a whole new world and series. Even the writing style seems completely different from Frank's other books (and I am a fan of her other series - Nightwalkers and Shadow Dwellers). When we finally get to the point that we see the world we were expecting and the return of some of the characters from the first book, we have already begun to see the changes in Adrian and have a solid picture of Katheryn's character. Unfortunately, Katheryn is portrayed as such a forgiving and gentle character that she is difficult to believe and almost comes across as weak. Although Adrian's character and situation would require a forgiving and understanding female, that doesn't mean that she has to come across as weak or a push-over. The political atmosphere and coniving of the ruling body of Beneath is brought into play and the return of characters from the first book in the series helped to reinterest me in the story and find more of the enjoyment I was expecting to find in the book. This book didn't really further the overall story from a series perspective and the first 60 pages of the book really did nothing for me. The rest of the book was more like the Jacquelyn Frank I have come to enjoy reading and the reintroduction of some of the other gatherers and the council members finally ties this story to the series. As a fan of Frank, I will look forward to the next book in the series with the hope that it will be more exciting, but if I were to base my recommendation of Frank as an author or of the series on this one book, neither would be very high on my list. Overall, I was disappointed.
