Kennedy Stern has returned to campus after surviving an abduction, but old scars cut deep. Vivid flashbacks and terrifying dreams paralyze her, threatening to ruin her academic career and any chance she has at peace or happiness. This mental anguish, however, constitutes only a small fraction of her post-traumatic nightmare.
A partner in Kennedy's kidnapping remains at large and will not stop until he has silenced her witness permanently. His violent resolve risks not only her life, but the safety of anyone who tries to help.
Kennedy must engage in a deadly battle of the mind as she struggles to stay alive. While fighting on two fronts - one psychological and one physical - the question isn't whether she'll come out of the war stronger in the end.
The question is whether she'll come out of it at all.

One of the greatest things about Alana Terry’s writing is she’s not afraid to tackle hard topics. In book one, Unplanned, Kennedy Stern faces and survives a kidnapping by crazed maniacs. In Paralyzed we meet Kennedy again and share the realities of the aftermath. Over and over, Kennedy struggles with what being a Christian means in recovery. If she prays enough, reads her bible enough, does enough, she will be healed from the PTSD that is crippling her life. I found the realism of Kennedy’s struggles, combined with the fast-paced story, a great combination.
