Stolen | Lucy Christopher

Stolen by Lucy Christopher is a dramatic, beautifully crafted start to this eerie, menacing novel hooks you in and keeps you turning the pages, long after it gets bogged down by the inertia of the 2 main characters.

I kept hoping that the story would live up to the promise of the first half, but in the end just skimmed the last third of the book to see how it resolved.

This book is for those of you that like to wallow in psychological drama & tension.

Sixteen-year-old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. This wild and desolate landscape becomes almost a character in the book, so vividly is it described. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back?

The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don’t exist—almost.
