The Taken (TSS Vol 4) -- Elicia Hyder With 139 days left to live and a wedding and baby deliverance squeezed into that count, Sloan Jordan has got her hands plenty full! Taiya's missing status is still at large and the people behind it a mystery. All Sloan knows it that the kidnappers whom she believes have her red-headed friend are growing their strength in preparation to launch another attack. With her band of trusty friends beside her and a keen wit and kind heart to guide her, Sloan knows that sitting around is no longer an option. To find her friend and thwart the evil plans in motion, she must embrace a new set of skills to help her defeat the demons threatening her and the ones she loves. Lies and secrets unravel, poisoning her trust in the very people meant to protect her and her unborn child. Past friends and foes emerge, answers uncover but more questions surface. At the end of the day, there's one man who's intentions may not be pure as he's advertised. And if that's the case, Sloan's got more problems than just planning a wedding, warding off pregnancy poundage, keeping a platonic relationship with former love-interest Nathan McNamara, and dissuading her best friend from pining after her fiancé's father. (I was given this Advance Reader Copy (ARC) in exchange for an honest review. Plus, spoiler-free.) Sloan's belly bump isn't the only thing that's growing; prepare to stifle bursts of laughter in your cubicles because Elicia Hyder is a comedic genius! Wit is smuggled in intense situations, woven throughout Sloan's inner monolog, and fired between character dialogue. I'd say this is the funniest book of the series, even trumping The Siren! (And that was hilarious—hell, all of eL's books are bound to make you giggle.) New characters were introduced, and I had no issue distinguishing them from the existing players. Humor is the strongest suit of The Taken, but perhaps at the cost of clarity within revelation of secrets and unfolding of some events. I had to read over the action scenes a couple of times to understand who did what and what was said. They felt a little rushed in relation to the pace of the book. There were also some possible plot holes that I came across while doing a serious analysis of the ARC. Sometimes, the story felt a little jumpy and there were some confusing bits, only to make conclusive at the end or near that. But overall, the story was good and answered some questions left from the previous volumes while leaving you with enough line to want more. OH! And one last note, this story should come with a "Cliffhanger" warning, so if you can't handle those torture devices, perhaps wait until closer to the release of book five to start. Hero rating: 5 stars Heroine rating: 5 stars Writing mechanics (literary elements/devices usage included): 4 stars Plot rating: 3.5 stars Dialogue rating: 4.5 stars Storytelling rating: 3.5 stars Story ending rating: 4 Sexual tension rating: 4 stars Sex scenes rating: N/A Sex scenes frequency: 2 (not good nor bad, just occurrence rating) ********************************************** Overall rating: 4.2 stars Would I recommend this series: Yes. Would I re-read this series: Yes. Would I read future books by this author: Yes.

Taiya is still missing. Kasyade might be gone for now but she will be back and demons are still hunting Sloan down, waiting for the right moment to take her out. Just another day in her new life she is attempting to adjust to. More questions will be answered and secrets unburied in this 4th book. While I felt the end battle a bit rushed, I still loved every single moment of this book. Elicia has a way of telling a story! I adore the characters and became immersed in their lives as if I was there. I raced through this series within a few weeks, just could not put them down wanting to know what was going to happen next! I am anxiously waiting to see what my favorite characters will be getting into next!
