Publisher's Summary

In the concluding book in the otherworldly Taking trilogy, Kyra struggles to understand who she is as she races to save the world from complete destruction.

Ever since Kyra was abducted by aliens and then returned to Earth, she has known there was something different about her. Now she knows the truth: She is an alien, too. Her alien captors replaced all her human DNA with their own - gifting her with supernatural powers like incredible healing, enhanced eyesight, and telekinesis. But when she's captured by an unexpected enemy, Kyra begins to wonder if her abilities are also a curse. And is she, as her enemies believe, meant to play some key role in helping an impending alien invasion? Is it programmed into her, something inescapable? Or can she fight that destiny?

No matter what the truth is, Kyra is sure of one thing: She just rescued the love of her life, Tyler, and she is not going to stand by and let anyone hurt him or her friends. Whatever it takes, Kyra will do everything in her power to save the world...even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

Excellent ending

Wonderful narrator & interesting story. The ending was bittersweet & satisfying. Some very annoying characters & some endearing ones. All the characters were believable. Read the series

enjoyable listen

Enjoyed the characters and the conflict. I thought the narrator did a good job and the twists in the story were not unique but still well done. The teenagers dialog sounded realistic and I enjoyed the bit of romance, could have used a bit more humor, but overall enjoyable.

Keep your friends close

This was an exceptional finish to the Taking Series. All the storylines converged in this book and were wrapped up very nicely. The author does a great job using new-age lingo and has many witty pop culture references thrown throughout the book. I quickly loved this series and it never disappointed. Kira and our band of "teenage" replaced were a very likeable bunch of characters. Friends become enemies, enemies become friends and the climax is only just the beginning. Whether you are rooting for Simon or Tyler there is a lot to enjoy in this final book. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, the author mixes in a curveball. I couldn't imagine the conclusion of this series ending any differently. And... what is more scary than a driving test other than aliens :) The narration is very well done and keeps consistent the entire way through this book and the series. It really brings the author's words alive. A job well done.
