Gray Weathersby and his group of rebels must make their final stand in the epic conclusion to the Taken trilogy, which New York Timesbestselling author Marie Lu called "an action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end."

The Order is building an unstoppable army, with every generation of Forgeries harder to detect and deadlier than the one before. It’s time for Gray and his fellow rebels to end the Order's world of lies. But when the most familiar faces—and even the girl he loves—can’t be trusted, Gray will have to tread carefully if he wants to succeed. Or survive.
 

Biography

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 family and when not writing she can often be found hiking, geeking out over good typography, and obsessing over all things Harry Potter. Visit her online at embowman.com or on twitter @erin_bowman


This series has been touch and go with me.  The first two were ok. But this one was by far the best for me.  It was on par with the other two and answered all my questions etc.  If you like the first two books this is def. something you want to check out! 




When Juneau's clan disappeared, she lost so much more than her friends and family. She soon discovered everything she thought she knew about her life was a lie. Her people's gifts were actually secret abilities that others wanted, desperately enough to kidnap an entire village.

Juneau and her new companion Miles's cross-country journey to find her clan has led them to a game preserve in New Mexico. Now Juneau's people are finally within reach, and she will stop at nothing to save them. But she has a target on her back too, because unbeknownst to her she is the key to unlocking everything. To rescue her people - and herself - Juneau must discover what she, and her abilities, are truly capable of.

This one just keeps getting better and better!  I so can't wait for what Plum has in store for us with this series.  I love this story!  The characters, plot, EVERYTHING its amazing!!!! 



"Before you stands the future."


Straight-laced, sixteen-year-old Rebecca can't wait for her Acceptance. A fancy ball, eligible bachelors, and her debut as an official member of society. Instead, the Machine rejects Rebecca. Labeled as a future criminal, she's shipped off to a life sentence in a lawless penal colony.



A life behind barbed-wire fences with the world's most dangerous people terrifies Rebecca. She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape plan, complete with an accidental fiancé she's almost certain she can learn to love.



But freedom comes with a price. To escape a doomed future and prove her innocence, Rebecca must embrace the criminal within.


Biography

Sarah Negovetich knows you don't know how to pronounce her name and she's okay with that.

Her first love is Young Adult novels, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it's accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliché.

Sarah divides her time between writing YA books that her husband won't read and working with amazing authors as an agent at Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her life's goal is to be only a mildly embarrassing mom when her kids hit their teens.

You can learn more about Sarah and her books at www.SarahNegovetich.com or follow her antics on Twitter @SarahNego.


Although I really tried to love this book it just didn't work out for me.  It was very similar to another book of its kind called The Forsaken. But where that one the children were just dropped off to fend for themselves. This book the children were in in a prison along with adults and well some really bad jailers.  The plot was slow and fast. But in the end it just kinda fell flat for me.

I would like to win Forged, because I think the series sounds really good.

Misti S said...

I'd love to read all of them, but I'm most looking forward to Forged. I've read Taken but not the rest of the books. It's on my TBR list though. I just have to hunt the books down. Thank you!

Karen Maldonado said...

Until the beginning, because I loved After the End and I can't wait for Until the Beginning.

I think I would want Rite of Rejection because it sounds like something my brain would come up with for me to dream.
