E tânără, veselă, fermecătoare. Ca orice fată, merge la şcoală, are prieteni, se distrează, se îndrăgosteşte (şi nu de unul, ci de doi băieţi!). Numai că ea este capabilă şi să se caţere pe clădiri, să sară de pe un acoperiş pe altul, să vadă în întuneric. Are şi gheare! Da, Chloe se poate lăuda cu toate instinctele şi abilităţile unei pisici. Iar asta o face, într-adevăr, ...more

Again, I'm not sure that I would be reading this series if the TV series hadn't ended on such an immense cliffhanger and subsequently been canceled by ABC. But as I read these books, I'm realizing that the plots of the book and TV versions diverge considerably, so indeed, I may never know what happens with the storylines in the TV series. It's interesting--the books tackle a much simpler progression of events and the characters really do take on a completely different tone. Again in this volume, ...more

Woah! This book series is NOTHING like the TV show. Well except for the whole Mai thing. I'm excited to get my claws on the last book!
A quick summary of the book:


This book started out slow with boring and unnecessary events that I didn't get why the title was The Stolen. (view spoiler)

One thing's for sure: I liked this book BETTER than the last book. When I reached the pre-climax, I couldn't stop reading. I was like, Damn, this book is insane, man! (yes I quoted Hamilton) The events started to tense up and the story gets more complex!

Have you ever come across those series where the first book makes you think, "Hmm, this is going to be good!" Then you pour through the second book and just sit speechless for a bit?

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

This was a lot more tolerable than the first but still not worth the read. Then why 3 stars? I shall explain for once without giving smack to the book.

Of course the story and setting does expand by introducing new characters. We learn more about the Mai. I will give the book props for introducing a new supernatural creature. It's interesting to read about a super race of humanoid cats. They don't just mention the physical attributes of it but include the animal instinct and role of prides.

I did not finish this. I don't know, it was just too slow for me. I mean, the premise of the book is about this girl that discover she is part of an ancient race of feline warriors and that a secret order wants her dead, and everything was extremely dull. For starters it takes her an entire book to discover what she is, the first book is basically just to explore her powers. This second one there is close to no action and she is secluded in this location and is basically just to disco

The story immediately picks up where it left off in the first book " THE FALLEN " and picks up the pace as Chloe struggles to adapt to Brian's betrayal, being a feline, her friends, and the San Francisco pride. In this book we get to know more about the history of the Mai and The Order which provides valuable insight and answer some of the questions that cam up in the first book.

Chloe develops allot in this book because of the situations she finds herself in. She is forced to live with stranger

This both historically inaccurate, badly written, and arguably racist. The Mai are supposedly Egyptian/from Africa, with the whole 'no screwing humans' thing popping up 5,000 years ago. Historically, the people of Egypt were BLACK originally, with later invasions of Middle Eastern and Caucasian (eg. the Ptolmies were Macedonian) peoples. If the Mai are Egyptian, and no Mai can have sex with a human, then even if they migrated out of Egypt, they'd still be black people, because it takes more than ...more

I wish I could say that I liked this series 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.

The Stolen starts off exactly where The Fallen ended. We also get to know more about the Mai. Chloe's new life is now made up of danger and new characters are introduced in the book. The author continues to write in third person point of view, which personally I don't like because I mostly read in first person point of view. I liked the fact that the author included ancient myths in the story.Back to the Mai, they are decedents of the Egyptian goddess Bastet, which is another reason this book go ...more

"Uprowadzona" to drugi tom trylogii o losach Chloe King, która w dniu szesnastych urodzin odkryła, że jest kimś więcej niż zwyczajną nastolatką borykającą się z typowymi na ten wiek problemami. Tego dnia Chloe spadła z wieży i umarła. Jednak teraz żyje i musi uporać się z poważniejszymi trudnościami...

W "Uprowadzonej" dowiadujemy się trochę więcej o świecie, z którego pochodzi Chloe, choć jej znaczenie, jako osoby posiadającej dziewięć żyć zostało wytłumaczone słabo i ostatecznie według mnie cał

Prawdziwych przyjaciół poznaje się w biedzie

Życie nastolatki nie jest wcale kolorowe. Problemy z rodzicami szczególnie, gdy jest tylko jedno i to nad wyraz nadopiekuńcze, problemy sercowe, w szkole i wiele… wiele innych. Wydaje się, że gorzej już być nie może. A jednak! Chloe King przekonała się o tym na własnej skórze w momencie, gdy odkryła, iż tak naprawdę należy do mitycznej rasy Mai, czyli ludzi kotów.

Alright, admittedly I am really enjoying the story much more than I thought I would. It's fun, light hearted, with some sprinkling of ancient orders and blood feuds spanning thousands of years.

The second book has really blown open the world of the Mai and given a lot more texture and depth to the story than the first book did.

My one recommendation for this trilogy is to read it as one story with the three books being "parts" of that story. So far neither the first or second book would amount t
In the Stolen, Chloe finds herself taken care of by her pride. She feels so accepted and lucky to have them that she doesn't realize they're basically holding her prisoner.

The stolen was ok. (3 1/2 stars) I think I liked the first book in the series better because Chloe was just learning of her powers and still trying to lead a normal life. I missed that aspect in the Stolen, but it looks like it might be heading that way again in the next book, so we'll see. I really hope that Brian is back in

I’m going to be lazy and borrow the GoodReads synopsis for this one:
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

I wanted to read this series because ABC Family has turned this book series into a television show. With most adaptation the source material is usually better than the adaptation. Because my library didn't have the first bookThe Fallen. I had to start with this book.

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

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

This book has a serious case of the italics.

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

Dio mio. Empezamos con los problemas de bandos en este libro. Por un lado el problemón estilo Romeo y Julieta con Brian, y por otro lado los problemas internos con los Mai y Alyec. Por otro lado aprendimos cosas de quién es Chloe y su familia.

El libro está bien, pero no está súper Wow. La verdad sigo aquí porque tengo dudas no resueltas sobre el programa de TV y quiero saber si mi ship será canon o no.

Igual, si no tienen nada más que leer les recomiendo que le hachen un ojo.

I really enjoyed the first book but I feel like the second one kind of went down hill. It was a lot more confusing and I felt like the main character went from being a really cool, sarcastic girl to a really annoying brat at times. The ending was also really unbelievable and confusing. I feel like the author tried really hard to make a shocking plot twist at the end and it just crashed and burned.

As opposed to the first book this one has a fairly interesting plot line; Chloe meets her people and tries to learn their history, her mom is kid-napped, and her best friends that started dating in the first book are starting to have issues. Like the first book it is well written and I am still biased towards it since I love the show so much.
In The Chosen, Chloe finally knows what she is (Mai), a Rogue is trying to kill her, and her mother is kidnapped.

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

Woah! That ending! S*** went down in this book. I loved seeing Chloe assimilating with the Mai and forming friendships. Seeing her sacrifice and determination was awesome. I love this series and can't believe I haven't read it sooner. The books are easy but fantastic reads.
Renee Mapa
This book has a good story line and idea but the way it was written is sort of childish. It's very quick and not many details. I didn't really want to keep reading it. If it was written a different way or by a different person it could have been a bit more interesting.

Worse than the first book. I only decided to read the series as I had seen the TV show which ended in a cliffhanger. I wish I hadnt, as that's a weeks worth of reading time I'll never get back. Not enough detail to support a plot, main characters are annoying.

Much better than the first book, still not great. It got a bit more into the cat part. Great writing, I thought that this book didn't express her talent enough. I won't be reading the third book but it was a good book, just not good enough, for me.
