Description

New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu called Taken, Erin Bowman's debut novel, "an action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end." The action and suspense rise to explosive new heights in Forged, the epic conclusion to the Taken trilogy—and the perfect next read for fans of The Maze Runner and Gone.

Gray Weathersby knows the truth about the Laicos Project, the Order, and the Forgeries—and he knows they must be stopped. But each generation of Forgeries is deadlier than the one before, and now even the most familiar faces—including the girl Gray loves—can't be trusted. To make a stand against the Order, Gray will have to risk it all.

        "Gripping." — Kirkus Reviews

        "A satisfying culmination to this dystopian-thriller trilogy, and sure to please series fans." — ALA Booklist

        PRAISE FOR THE TAKEN TRILOGY: "A surfeit of enemies and a constant sense of danger heighten the suspense." — Kirkus Reviews

        "The strengths of this series are in the dystopian world and survival aspects. Frozen will attract most readers of science fiction." — Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

        "An action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end. I devoured this in one sitting and might have gnawed a nail or two off from all the excitement. More, please!" — Marie Lu, New York Times best-selling author of the Legend trilogy

        "A suspenseful trek. Readers will eagerly await the next installment." — Kirkus Reviews

        "An action-packed, emotionally charged, plot-twisting adventure." — ALA Booklist

        "A dramatic work that is reminiscent of Lois Lowry's The Giver and will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games." — School Library Journal

        "Plenty of action and suspense." — ALA Booklist

        February 15, 2015
        In the last of the Taken trilogy, Gray sets out with a few of his Expat buddies to discover what villainy is taking place at the Compound, an island fortress run by the evilly dictatorial Frank.He's accompanied by, among others, Blaine, his twin brother, Clipper, a 13-year-old computer whiz, and Bree, one of his previously established pair of love interests, although Gray has finally conclusively settled on her as his one and only. As the mission begins, Emma, his other love interest, unexpectedly appears and lures Gray and Blaine into the enemy's hands with horrid consequences. Although she is clearly not a Forgery-one of the vast number of cloned warriors Frank has produced-her motivations remain unclear. Taken to the Compound, Gray is subject to a nasty episode of torture and encounters the somewhat flawed Forgery of a previous ally, Harvey, who may hold the key to defeating Frank. Violence, murder, blood and gore are abundant, but suspense is palpable as well. Gray's first-person, present-tense voice keeps the narrative edgy. Since Bowman is all too willing to kill off key characters, there's a constant, strong sensation that no one will survive the trilogy, ensuring a pervasive sense of danger. Even though in-depth characterization takes a distant back seat to action, the ride is compelling enough. Gripping but not at all for the faint of heart. (Dystopian adventure. 13-18)

        In this trilogy-ender (Taken; Frozen), Gray is ready to let Bree know his feelings, to reunite his brother with the family he left behind, and to fight back against the Franconian Order. Before the Rebels and Expats move, however, the Order tries to smoke Gray out. This dystopian novel's pace races over some plot holes.
