The Stolen: An American Faerie Tale by Bishop O'Connell

With a hero who reminds me a little of Jamie Fraser from Outlander crossed with a nicer version of Wolverine, The Stolen is a quick-moving urban fantasy set in Boston, about a young woman named Catilin, whose daughter is stolen by some truly nasty and creepy dark faeries. She's helped by Brendan, an exiled warrior; the elegant elf Dante; and Edward, Catilin's lovelorn friend, who is learning how to use his wizard powers. Brendan is struggling with a tragedy from long ago. Caitlin is attempting to rescue her child from the twist of a villain. Dante the elf is trying to prevent a supernatural disaster. And Edward is being tempted to go darkside. I love books about faeries, and this was a fun read. I could see the movie in my head. If you like Celtic mythology mixed with action and magic, The Stolen is for you.
