Fans of Incarceron by Catherine Fisher and Variant by Robison Wells won't want to miss this magnetic first book in a gripping dystopian sci-fi series. Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend trilogy, raves that Taken is "an action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end. More, please!"

Gray Weathersby has grown up expecting to disappear at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. They call it the Heist—and it happens to every boy in Claysoot. His only chance at escape is to climb the Wall that surrounds Claysoot. A climb no one has ever survived . . .

Erin Bowman used to tell stories visually as a web designer. Now a full-time writer, she relies solely on words. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband, and when not writing she can often be found hiking, commenting on good typography, and obsessing over all things Harry Potter. She is also the author ofTakenandFrozen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from calling all dystopian lovers! Not a popular book but a great read! Reminded me a bit of the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver! (also a great series) the main character is great! She's got a lot of sass and spunk which i personally like aha makes for interesting dialogue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I liked this book; it was entertaining and made me want to know the ending. A couple good unexpected twists, yet some obvious relationship mishaps and get-togethers. For me, I'm not really into the whole "you can only have one true love" thing and then the protagonist has issues finding this one true love and gets all confused. I find it annoying and this book had that feel. I am glad I read it, but am not planning on reading the second one.

Editorial Reviews

“A dramatic work that is reminiscent of Lois Lowry’s The Giver and will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games.”
