Author: Becca Vincenza
Release Date: TODAY
Genre: Adult Paranormal
Cover Designer: Airicka Mystical Creations

Author Note: This book takes place before and during Damaged, it can be read before, but I strongly urge that this be read AFTER Damaged. (this isn’t a gimmick or anything, the way the story is set it does do spoilers for Damaged)
Xavier is set to protect the dying races. As a fierce gargoyle warrior, he isn't meant to love deeply. Drake is the last of his kind, and survival isn’t easy.
Xavier recognizes Drake as his true mate the first time they meet. However, Drake’s tormented past has led him to the wrong woman. Xavier must do what he can to save Drake from the choices he’s made. If Drake’s resentment, fears, and stubborn denial can be overcome, they’ll have a love that could bridge the races.
This isn’t a story of redemption. This is their story.
Warning: This is an adult book. There are exploit scenes of sex, torture, and violence. This isn’t meant for readers under the age of 18. Please note this is a Male/Male Romance.
~~~ REVIEW ~~~
Stolen is a prequel to the book, Damaged (part one of the Rebirth Series). I highly recommend reading Damaged first. While Stolen could be considered a standalone novel and could be read first, it does offer details about events in Damaged that would definitely be spoilers for that novel.
Stolen tells the story of Drake (Audrey’s father) and Xavier (the gargoyle and head of the York clan). In Damaged, we learn that both men have a romantic relationship with one another. Stolen shows us how that bond begins, how it is tested and how it can survive through the pain and suffering of the two characters.
I have enjoyed the Rebirth series so far and found Stolen to be a great story about the two male characters. We get to learn the reasons behind certain events from Damaged and what Drake was going through when horrible acts were committed. While other characters from Damaged are in Stolen, most of them are secondary or have very minor roles (with the exception of Marcus – (side note: While I enjoyed reading Marcus’ dialogue in the Scottish brogue, there were times when it was difficult to understand what he was saying).
Drake’s shape-shifting abilities and his alter ego were strongly written and it was fascinating to hear the shape-shifter’s thoughts and how they often contradicted what Drake wanted.
I think I connected more with Drake than Xavier because of the situations from Damaged and what lead to the strife between the father and the daughter.
If you enjoyed reading Damaged, definitely give Stolen a try!
** Stolen is does contain violence and sexual content (male on male) that is not suitable for children under 18.
