Book Review: Taken by Brock Eastman

Excerpt: "It was great how Oliver handled the escape and all, but I don't think we can rescue our parents. We need an adult. What happens if we get caught?"

"I don't know, but we should listen to Oliver," Tiffany answered to Mason's surprise, and even a little to her own. She'd been offended by Oliver's assertive behavior, but she knew the two of the needed to remain unified for the twins' sake. "If these men can just break into someone's home and take them without any worry that they'll be caught, they must be working for someone very powerful. We don't know what capabilities the Übel might have or who they are in contact with," Tiffany explained. "Besides, Oliver's learned a lot at the Academy. Let's give him a chance."

Mason nodded slowly. "If you say so, sis." Taken, pg 61.

Back Cover: Suit up! Jump into hyper flight with the four Wikk kids! Forced into a high-stakes hunt for their missing parents by the sinister Captain Vedrik, the siblings' only hope is their parents' Archeos e-journal. Can Tiffany decipher the clues within it? As time runs out, it's all up to Oliver and his Federation training to fly the Phoenix and protect his crew. But twins Mason and Austin endanger the mission when they unexpectedly meet...the blue boy!

The Quest for Truth series follows the four Wikk kids in their desperate race to find the mysterious planet Ursprung and stop the Übel renegades from misusing its long-lost secrets. Ancient cities, treacherous villains, high-tech gadgets, the Phoenix - encounter all these and more on this futuristic, interplanetary adventure.

My Review: This book is very hard to put down! Each chapter is filled with danger, adventure and excitement. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next, and if the kids were going to get out of the situations that they were in. Taken is an exciting start to the Quest for Truth series. I'm excited to read the rest of the books in this series as they come out. I just have to find out how the whole thing is going to end.

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this book to young adults who enjoy futuristic novels.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)
