Stealing Kathryn is a very good read, and a surprising one - surprising because when we meet the evil and twisted character at the beginning, one who is about to kidnap a woman after giving her terrifying nightmares, we have no idea that he will eventually be the hero. He is, and a surprisingly heroic one. Mind you, the heroine, Kathryn, is fairly unusual, too. She seems able to cope with pretty much everything thatís thrown at her, and her life changes rather significantly during the course of the book.

Stealing Kathryn is set in a world between the human realm and ĎThe Beneath.í Our hero Adrianís job is to gather energy from nightmares to feed his people. Unfortunately this is corrupting work, and heís turned into a monster. Only when he kidnaps Kathryn to add her to his Ďtreasuresí does he begin to change back into the person he was before.

Jacquelyn Frank fills Stealing Kathryn with strong characterization and description. The main characters interact a great deal and are both believable. I also enjoyed the worlds that she has made for this series. While I hadn't read the previous book, Hunting Julian, that didnít matter at all in understanding this book. I look forward to the next one!
