Today is the official release day of TAKEN by Erin Bowman, published by HarperTeen! This book has been on one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts recently. I’ve been dying to read this. Every time someone posts a review, I go and read it to see how it is. I would go out and buy it today but I have a lot of other books I need to review this month that I told authors and blog tour hosts I would read. I’ll definitely be picking it up next month, though! Anybody else excited about it like I am?!
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?”
