Taken

Author: Brock Eastman
Softbound;  315 pages
ISBN: 978-1-59638-245-9
Retail Price: $12.99

I had the opportunity to review Taken which is a very unique fictional book by Brock Eastman. Brock also worked on projects like Adventures in Odyssey and Imagination Station – what is one thing these two have in common? Focus on the Family…need I say more? Hopefully not, but I will just in case you don’t know – Focus on the Family, in my opinion, is AWESOME! I have trusted them FOR YEARS…and this book didn’t let me down either.

This book is hard to explain – it catches you quickly in the beginning and holds your attention through out…these are good things. However I did have a little bit of difficulty following along at a few different spots – but as long as I kept reading, things fell back together. It is geared toward teens so the main characters are all teenish in age. I guess my main thought is that I have never read anything like this book before, ever. It definitely was NOT a book where I could guess any part of what was going to happen next. *grin*

Overall I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to others. The only downfall of this book was that you will HAVE to get book two as there is no closure in book one.

This book is one of several upcoming in The Quest for Truth series. The second book, Risk, should be out in May!

And now…the giveaway! I have been blessed with TWO copies of this book to giveaway to TWO of my readers! Enter below…

    I also like that it is recommended by Focus on the Family. We really enjoy their monthly magazines. We have purchased through them as well – supports the cause.

    Knowing that the book is from an employee at FOTF gives me a sense of comfort. I won’t have to worry that my daughter might see the book cover & ask me something I don’t want to answer.
