Sloan Jordan’s days are numbered. She has 139 to be exact. In that time, there’s a lot to do: a missing friend to find, a wedding to plan, and her own murder plot to overthrow. When a lead takes the crew back to Chicago, the truth they uncover is more shocking than they ever imagined—to fight the enemies of the present, they must first face the demons from the past.
2.5 (THREE) BOUNDLESS STARS
In every book series I have ever read, there always seems to be that one book that is predominantly character building. The Taken is that book, in my opinion. There is a lot to this book at 329 pages, and not a lot happens. The problem with the "character building" book is I don't care for them. I personally always feel a bit cheated. I want the story to keep moving the Plot and character build.
Don't get me wrong the Plot did move forward minutely and manly towards the end of the book, but we spent the majority of the book hearing about how fat Sloan is. Which I personally found insulting. She is pregnant with a mythical baby leave her alone. Let her eat. I honestly didn't expect that from a female author. I was disappointed, and it pissed me off.
I've been reading these books back to back, but The Taken took the winds out of my reading sails. I'm not sure if I will continue the series. It's not bad, and I am curious, but I am also not feeling it anymore after book 4.
Overall I am rating The Taken 2.5 Boundless stars, too much pregnant woman weight shaming, and not enough plot movement for 300 plus pages. Meh.
