The Stolen (Nine Lives of Chloe King #2)
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....more
Although I liked the story, I find Chloe portray in the television series better. The Chloe in the books doesn't usually see clues that are right in front of her. The story and conflict seem to develop and resolve fairly quickly. It...more
Yep, that's what happened to me this weekend. I recently finished reading The Fallen, the first book in The Nine Lives of Chloe King. I was left wondering after that book so went and found the second book. Just as the first was, THE STOLEN, the second book in this series, was a quick read and packed with enough actio...more
This book is about 16 year old chloe king. you could say she is like spiderman she can climb the sides of buildings with ease and she has powers. She is not your typical teen even though she seems like she is because she gets in arguments with her parents and doesn't like the responsibilities that come with being a teenager. She sometimes even skips school which is really bad for her and her mother doesn't even have a clue that she does any of this. In fact she...more
Chloe is still stringing along Alyec and Brian. Turns out that Alyec was a Mai like her (which allows making out since she can't kill him) and Brian ended up being the son of the man who leads the The Order of the Ten Blades (which kill Mai).
Chloe has already died twice and at the end of the book you'll discover why she has so many lives.
Nothing really happens in the book so I don't r...more
This book is exactly like the first one.
What was the first one like?
I'll tell you! It was crap!
Nothing went on in The Fallen and a tiny wittle more goes on here. and what is 2x0.1% plot? You guessed! Boy, you are some smart Goodreaders!
I remember that Chloe goes to watch a boring movie, Chloe goes cat-hunting, Chloe's mom gets kidnapped, Amy breaks into Chloe's house and is generally being a bitch. I remember feeling sorry for Paul, the only decent character in here. I remember not giving a sh...more
It also includes more focus on the non-Chloe characters, a development that seems inspired by the realization that Chloe was the least likable non-villain in the first book. We also get about three times when the text reflects on why someone likes Chloe, or a character states specifically why he likes her, which is a shorthand way to point out our protagonist's previously mysterious positive qualities. She is passionate and committed more than the aver...more

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.
And now I am officially Team Brian.
