Publisher's Summary

Emma, Aiden and Gina stand on the brink of a new life. After the trauma of Aiden’s abduction and return, they are slowly healing and returning to a fragile normality. Emma is desperate to protect her children, but the world is fascinated by Aiden, the silent child who is finally learning to speak for himself.

Against her better judgment, Emma allows her son to attend a talk show. Her worse nightmare comes true when her daughter, Gina, is snatched from the studio and a chilling game begins. 

Emma is convinced the answers lie in the darkest corners of the family’s past, and that Aiden must be able to work out the puzzle, if only he dare reach into the horrors of his memory.

But as the mystery deepens and Gina is still missing, the family must face a terrible question: is history repeating itself, or is there a new enemy to contend with?

Layered with emotion, and told from Aiden and Emma’s perspectives, the sequel to Silent Child is a dark and thrilling listen.

Terrible sequel

The ridiculous and unbelievable nature of the first book was fun and entertaining. This time around, it was just dumb. Save your credit. What a terrible book.

Not bad but not great

The first book The Silent Child is one of the best books I’ve ever listened to. This sequel had a lot to follow up and it came off more hallow with way less impact. I enjoyed it and am glad I listened. It was fun to get to hear more from Aiden. The narration was incredible.

A tiny bit exaggerated

I loved the narrators, Joanne Froggatt is the best to me.
I enjoyed the book mostly for this reason though.. found the plot a bit over the realistic edge.

Worst book ever

Utter rubbish! A book with no substance, totally predictable. Wound it on most the time just to get to the end. A waste of time and money.

Hurt People Hurt People

I make no promise not to drop spoilers. I will make an effort, but consider yourself warned just in case...

Nobody in this story has been unscathed. But they all react differently. Some people choose forgiveness. Some live in paranoid fear, too scared to open up to the world around them. And then some people become manic and help a dangerous predator kidnap the six year old son of the guy who jilted her in high school...because, you know, that's mature and makes total sense...or maybe not so much.

I loved Silent Child, so I was very excited for Stolen Girl. Sarah Denzil did not disappoint...for the most part. Parts had be on the edge of my seat.. Parts of it made me want to cry. I just wanted to give Aiden a big comforting hug half the time.

I loved this second installment right up until the villain's devious purpose was revealed. Turns out the one girl helped that one guy kidnap Aiden as a vendetta to hurt Aiden's father for something he'd done when he was young and stupid in high school. As someone who has not only been the jilted third wheel but is also known to hold a grudge, even I have not considered this to be a viable means of enacting revenge. It took me out of the story a little bit, but then I'd get sucked right back in. I still love the book, but not quite as much as I loved the first book.

Once again, Joanne Froggatt delivers an excellent performance, and I'm so happy they brought Gerran Howell back to read for Aiden.

While I am still annoyed by certain aforementioned plot details, I would still recommend!

Sequel

Having read and enjoyed “Silent Child” I was reluctant to embark on a sequel as I rarely find them equal to the first. Not so this time. It is excellent. The same characters but now changed by circumstances.
Highly recommended

Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.

I had no idea there was a sequel to Silent Child until I had written the review and was about to download my next story. It was then that I saw this book and became curious. On reading the synopsis I admit that I exclaimed, "What? Now she loses her other child".
I tentatively purchased this book because I truly wanted to know 'what happens next' all the while deeply hoping it wouldn't shatter my perfect memory of the first book, I needn't have worried because this book was the perfect sequel.
In hindsight it now seems only right that the loose end from the first book - that I hadn't realised was so..."loose" - got sorted out.
I feel strangely proud of Aiden and how far he's come. There were a few eye-roll moments at the beginning of the book where Emma's "motherly love" felt as though it was smothering me, but she saw the error of her ways in the end.
These characters were so well written (and performed) that I feel they're real.
I highly recommend this book but make sure you listen to book 1, Silent Child, first. This isn't a stand-alone sequel if you get my drift, the first story is important in order to understand motivations and decisions in this book.

Another gripping book

Loved the first book of this series and the second was just as gripping. The narrators really bring the story to life. Just like the first book, I couldn't switch the book off listening whilst driving, cooking, cleaning etc.

I pre -ordered and couldn't wait for the book, it was worth the wait.

Look forward to more books by this author.

Outstanding 5 Star

It’s not often a sequel smashes you in the face like this one! Nail biting with plenty of twists to keep you going. I really enjoyed listening to both books and both narrated fantastic.

Horribly predictable

In spite having Joanne Froggatt as a narrator this sequel was terrible. It jumped into the plot too quickly with no build up. It was so cliche and predictable it was almost cringe worthy.
