Gr 8 Up-According to Faery tradition, it is time for the evil King of Summer, Strahan, to give up this throne, but he refuses, thus causing a drought in the mortal realms and untold chaos to the fae (especially those who oppose him). Eloise and Jo have been best friends since they were children. Now 17, Eloise is kidnapped by Strahan so that he can lure his mortal wife, Eloise's aunt, into the Faery realm, and Jo must organize a rescue. Then, the teens must try to redress a wrong that is affecting all the realms, including ours. Harvey has built a solid, entertaining tale for readers new to stories of the fae, as well as longtime fans of fantasy. Both teens are fully realized characters, flaws and all. The story moves quickly and with plenty of suspense and action. Stolen Away is definitely a girlie tale of romance and adventure. It is a strong addition to any fantasy collection.-Saleena L.
