Will Elise make out with her life, and heart intact?



5 Stars


Taken is not what I expected at all. It's an interesting concept with a bite!

Elise is out of a job and leads a rather boring and lonely life with no family or friends. This suddenly takes the most unusual turn.

She has just done her shopping and on her way to her car when she is grabbed by strong arms and flung into a van. She is being abducted! The two culprits take her to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Being blindfolded, she doesn't have a clue where she is. Her abductors don't give anything away about their identities or their action. She can only guess that they are running from the law. One is very rough whereas the other appears to be amenable and she is more comfortable in his company.

That doesn't say much about her, with him being her captor and all. They appear to hit it off but then the tides change and she doesn't have a clue on how this is all going to end. Will she go down fighting or will someone come to her rescue?

This novella is very well rounded. It's well paced with good character development. The author keeps up the suspense right until the end when there is the most unexpected twist. It's short, easy to read and a real page turner.
