Publisher's Summary

The Seventh Taking is the chilling tale of a young man’s journey through harsh mountain country in his search for the girl he loves and the two friends who dare to brave the dangerous elements - both human and natural - to support a friend. 

When Joy Vincent disappears in the Blue Summit Mountains of Tennessee while vacationing with her family, park rangers begin an intensive search for the Louisiana high-school junior. Seven weeks later, the search is abandoned, and authorities conclude that Joy voluntarily ran away because of a fight with her father. 

Unwilling to believe it, Abraham Wilson makes the long drive to the mountains and sets off on a journey that will change his life - and the lives of his friends, Brett Lester and Charlie Rickman - forever. Will they discover the secret behind Joy's disappearance, or will they meet with the same fate?

Not Your Typical "Teen" Story

I usually don't like "teen" stories, but I liked Seventh Taking. The story line is not particularly unique, but it kept my attention to the end. As a bonus, Bourg proves that you can write a good story and make it "clean". This would be a great book for teens, but is a good listen for adults as well.
Much credit goes to the excellent narration of Shawn Compton who chose to use mature voices for each character instead of making them sound like children.

better than I was expecting

This isn't my usual type of book and I didn't think i'd be as drawn into it as much as I was. It was a little slow to start, but once it got going I could easily see the vastness of the mountains and feel the twists and turns unfold. The characters were well developed and kept me interested for the duration.

Much of my enjoyment of this story was enhanced by Shawn Compton's narration which added to my overall audio experience.
