The Stolen (The Nine Lives of Chloe King #2) by Celia Thomson

Title: The Stolen (The Nine Lives of Chloe King #2)
Author: Celia Thomson
Published By: Simon Pulse (Aug. 31, 2004)
Genre: YA
My Rating: 2 Stars

Goodreads Description:
She argues with her mother. She occasionally skips class. And she alternately crushes on two totally different boys.
But Chloe King is by no means your typical teenager. The girl can scale buildings and see in the dark. Sometimes, at night, she even likes to leap from rooftop to rooftop. Yes, Chloe has the instincts and ability of a cat. And that makes her unique indeed.
It also makes her a wanted woman.
Because the Order of the Tenth Blade does not deal kindly with people like Chloe. It stalks them. Preys upon them. And wants many of them -- like Chloe, for instance -- dead.

My Review:
I really wanted to like this series and I wish I could say that I liked this book but I just can't get into it which is odd because I really like the TV series.
The Chloe in the books is nothing like the one in the TV series, in fact none of the characters are. Maybe if I hadn't watched the TV series first I would have like these books more. As it is, I doubt I will be starting the last book anytime soon.


  1. Hmmm. I requested the library to buy this book right before I read your review. Now I'm regretting it because I really like the TV show too. Why don't they have it anyway??

  2. You never know, you may like, I just didn't care for it at all.

  3. Possibly. I read the Secret Circle recently though and I thought it was just ok.
