Story Thieves: The Stolen Chapters is a wonderful, fast-paced novel that leaves you breathless at almost every single twist. This book was written so that you can’t expect anything, and if you do, your expectations are wrong. This formula is perfect to execute a stunning climax over and over. This book may be a little overwhelming, and if you like simple plots only, this isn’t your kind of a book. It takes some processing to understand exactly what is happening. Ok, so the plot. This whole series is plot-driven, and that’s why it turns out to be such a success. It’s about three friends that we know from the last book: Owen, Bethany, and Kiel. owen and Kiel wake up in Owen’s library with no memory and massive headaches. Then, some random guy in a question mark mask comes up to them and tells them he’s fictional, Sherlock Holmes’ son Doyle Holmes, he knows Kiel’s fictional, blah, blah, blah. Your typical serial-killing intellect. He tells them to find their friend Bethany in two hours, or basically, he’ll wreck them and the world. He then proceeds to set the library on fire, forcing them out and on their way. How Owen and Kiel manage to find Bethany and how they proceed to destroy Doyle is the crux of the story. The plot may sound simple enough, but it’s really not. The mystery is based on a play of words, and Owen doesn’t realize that until the end, until his nemesis practically gives the answer away. No amount of predicting can be done to guess exactly how this story ends. No doubt, it is one of my favorite books. 5/5. You won’t be disappointed.
