Stolen by Melissa De La Cruz

Goodreads Summary:
Who is Eliza Wesson?

Months after Nat and Wes said good-bye on the shores of the Blue, Nat is learning how to control and use her new power. She and her drakon are the last of their kind—and she’s risked her life for their reunion. When she receives a mysterious distress call, she races to help, soliciting the guidance of her new friend, the beautiful and aloof Faix Lazaved of the Blue.

Still heartbroken over losing Nat, Wes is racing cars on a New Vegas racetrack while his team is scattered and lost. When he finds out that his sister, Eliza, is being held in the golden domes of El Dorado, he does what he’s best at—running to her side—and gambles on luck to see him through one more time.

Magic, romance, and danger collide as Nat and Wes become entangled in a dark new adventure that leads right to the heart of the mystery of their frozen, broken world. They soon discover that the answer to both their quests lies in the same question: Who is Eliza Wesson—what is she capable of, and why was she stolen from her family so long ago?

My Review:
Stolen picks up pretty soon after Frozen ended. Nat is the awesome Drakonrydder of Vallonis. She is doing her duty to protect The Blue. She has learned how to use some of her powers and her and her Drakon are pretty much one in the same. They appear to be winning against what the world throws at them. Up until a new weapon cripples her and her Drakon. The Drakon burrows into the Earth in hopes to heal but, it is not guaranteed, he is hurt pretty bad. Nat is broken. She feels the loss of her Drakon. With the help of one of her friends she is able to come to her senses and live. While all this is going on with her Wes is having troubles of his own. He is trying to find his sister who he learned is still alive. It is not an easy task. It turns out to be more life threatening then anticipated. Will these two ever get what they want and be able to just life a happy quite life?

I swear when I read this book I thought these guys were in their 20's. Not teenagers. They way they act and things they have to do are just crazy. This is probably because of the way life is now. Earth is a harsh place to live and would cause you to have to be an adult at a young age. They are in life and death situations pretty regularly. I did like how the magical world played such a big role in Stolen. We get to learn a lot about the other characters and their roles in this new world. Magic is all around them and even inside people who had no idea. The twist with Eliza I NEVER saw coming! OMG! I am still shocked at how this book ended. Anyway, Nat and Wes have a lot to work through. Luckily they get to do some of it together.

Nat and Wes have feelings for each other. They are pretty cute together. I was hoping for a little more action between them but, they were pretty busy not dying and saving their friends from certain death so...I forgive them. The supporting characters are also awesome! There is a bit of a love triangle but, not really. Ok, more not really. Nat is very into Wes. I liked that! 

The book ended with an INSANE cliffhanger. I was like NOOOOOO it can't be done! Please let there be another chapter. Seriously, the next book needs to come out soon!
