Taige Branch was blessed, or maybe cursed, with the special gift of vision. She certainly doesn¿t feel special though and has had more than her fair share of pain - emotional and physical. Losing both parents and being sent to live with her fire and brimstone preacher of an uncle, she was constantly berated and regularly beaten because of the ¿evil¿ that supposedly had taken residence in her young body. Despite all of this, Taige uses her gift to the best of her ability, saving more than one person from certain death and then suffering the physically ravaging consequences in private after. When a wealthy boy¿s family buys a vacation home in the Alabama gulf where Taige lives, the teens are instantly attracted and it isn¿t long before he witnesses her gift first-hand. Unfortunately, she is unable to predict Cullen¿s mother¿s violent death, only to be blamed by him and cast aside.

Taige and Cullen may have been separated for several years but they never forgot each other. When Cullen¿s young daughter is kidnapped, Taige is the first person the single father turns to for help. Now officially working with the FBI to find missing children, Taige¿s abilities are maximized to the fullest. Cullen¿s daughter is found, but in doing so, Taige discovers and connects with a multitude of other murdered children who have been missing for decades. Cullen soon realizes that his daughter has the same gift as Taige, as did the children whose remains were recently discovered. He knows that in order for his daughter to ever have true peace in her life he will have to work with Taige in finding the man whose evil is responsible for the sheer hell these children endured. They won¿t have to look far though because he has Taige in his sights and he¿s bent on total destruction.

Shiloh Walker has outdone herself with this book. It¿s dark, sensual and suspenseful, but most of all it¿s chock full of excellently written emotion and turmoil. Taige and Cullen are damaged souls, and while their backgrounds couldn¿t have been more different, their hearts and their love for each other are very much the same. They both regret what could have been for their relationship all those years ago, but celebrate what the future may hold for them. I personally feel that this just might be Shiloh Walker¿s best work to date and I highly recommend it.

Fabulous! Riveting. Grabs you by the heart and throat and won't let go. "The Missing" is Shiloh Walker's latest release and it's a hell of a book! It's a bit darker and much deeper than any other of her works I've read (and that's quite a few) and in a totally good way.

Taige has always been different. Her psychic gift manifested when she was a very young child, but understanding her 'gift' took quite a lot longer. Her current career, finding lost and taken children, came about after a heartbreaking loss that cost her her one and only love. Now she accepts that she can't find every single one and it's not her choice who she can and cannot help. But when her lost love reappears seeking her assistance for his own child, will she be able to help him without losing her heart all over again.

I was wrapped up in this book from the first page. Walker has a skillful touch with making you feel for and with her characters. Taige is such a complex character who at times beats herself up more than anyone else can. Our hero, Cullen, is just as complicated. Their relationship is tangled and tantalizing with many ups and downs, but always hot. The only drawback I found was that I had the 'bad guy' figured out pretty quick, but that didn't keep me from enjoying the read while I watched the rest of her character's follow the clues. I hope she continues with a few more books in this world/setting as there are several very interesting secondary characters I would love to see with a story of their own.

A lot better than I was expecting, the romance is hardly as syrupy as the description seems - and the story itself is a lot darker, with child abduction and abuse and attempted rape, though the HEA is there . There were a couple of plot points that didn't quite work for me - most notably when Cullen cuts Taige from his life - it didnt fit his established character which overall was a little flat anyway (and I am afraid that the name Cullen is now irrevocably asociated with Twilight for me LOL). However the story was well paced, and Taige was a complex, likeable and well developed character. I liked it enough to look for more by the author.

Wow. I read this book without stopping, straight through the night. I loved everything about it. The book was haunting. The paranormal elements were a bonus but the real draw was the love story. I'm not into sappy reads either. I like action, danger and a bit of horror. I like the relationships to be physical and hot. This book had all of this but toned down and beautifully woven together. This is a keeper book for me.

From the beginning this was a page turning, heart wrenching read. Once I started it I could not put it down. We get to meet Taige and Cullen when they are teenagers and watch them fall in love. Taige has always had problems, not only with her gift but from personal relationships, including family that come out a result of that gift. Cullen vacations in the town Taige lives and has a bright future that includes college, a good job, and promising future. Despite being from opposite backgrounds they become friends and soon more. Until the dreadful day when Cullen's mother is killed and he becomes unable to face that Taige didn't use her gift to prevent it from happening. Which leads to a heartbreaking breakup and separation that keeps them apart for years. Taige has grown up and is using her gift to work with the FBI to find missing children, when Cullen comes back into her life needing her help she is reluctant. When she finds out it is his daughter that is missing and she is dreaming about her. She does all she can to help him find her. At this point we discover that the connection between them has not faded with time and can it be reignited and survive this latest challenge. When they come back together and start the race to find the little girl the story moves non stop. You not only need to keep reading to see if they get back together but to see if they figure out who kidnapped Cullen's daughter. The author has woven an amazing story together with perfect elements of romance and suspense. The characters are complex and so well done you really feel happy, sad and all shades in between with them. If that is your type of book, pick this up one right away.

The Missing is highly intense and I really liked the psychic aspect of the characters. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy using your mind to try and beat the author to the end result. Shiloh Walker keeps me on the edge of my seat. This is a great read.

I really liked this book. It was nice to read a "paranormal" style book that is not vampires, wereanimals, fae, etc. I really liked the psychic aspect of the characters. I loved the story between Taige and Cullen, though Cullen was an ass for a little bit. He made me really mad, but I think I understand, though that does not make it right. I will definitely recommend this book to others.

I am ashamed to say I bought this book kind of as a "desperate read". I have not read Shiloh Walker in quite some time, but this book really caught my interest. I could not put it down. Loved it from beginning to end.
