TakenTaken takes place in a society where all boys disappear (The Heist) on their 18th birthday. After his brother's Heist, Gray Weathersby finds a letter addressed to his brother from his deceased mother. This letter opens up doors about Gray and prompts him to discover the secrets beneath his intriguing society. 

I really enjoyed this book. The society was interesting and the story flowed smoothly.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about different kinds of societies embedded with adventure stories. The story is aimed toward a young adult audience, but anyone would enjoy it.

The day of their eighteenth birthday innocent boys are taken by a mysterious light from the sky. No one questions it, they just accept it. They call this The Heist. Gray Weathersby, a seventeen year old boy, is merely a couple months away from The Heist. His brother was already taken away from him and he did not want to be next. One day, Gray finds a note from his mother. After reading it, Gray starts to question the Council, his society, his family, and himself. In order to discover the truth, Gray will go on a journey that will answer all his questions.

Taken written by Erin Bowman, is an amazing novel filled with action, adventure, and romance. I enjoyed this book very much and I am very happy I gave the book a chance. I hope you do the same.

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy action/romance books. I also recommend this book to readers who are 13 and up due to the romantic scenes, violence, and crude language.
