Review of The Replaced by Kimberly Derting
Romantic and action-packed, The Replaced is the gripping second installment in the Taking trilogy.
hasn't been the same since she returned from her mysterious five-year
disappearance. Now, on the run from the NSA, Kyra is forced to hide out
with others who, like her, have been Returned. Yet she is determined to
find Tyler, the boy she loves who was also abducted—all because of her.
When her group intercepts a message that Tyler might still be alive but
is in the hands of a shadowy government organization that experiments on
the Returned, Kyra knows it's a risk to go after him. What if it's a
trap? And worse, what if the returned Tyler isn't the same boy she lost?
Perfect for fans of The Fifth Wave and the Body Finder series, The Replaced
is both chilling and explosive, with creepy, otherworldly elements and
twisty, psychological thrills that will have you questioning what
exactly it means to be human.

Kudos to this author for putting out yet another engaging read! I read the first book and was immediately hooked. The end left me craving more and I was so excited when I got my hands on the sequel.
It was equally as good and I LOVED it! Now I am pouting as I wait for the next book to come out so I can find out what happens to the characters that I have emotionally invested in.
This review would have been longer, but I didn't want to give any of it's awesomeness away! Pick up the first book, The Taking and you'll see what I mean! This installment in the series gets five glittery stars for it's supreme storyline!
A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.
sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’
Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache
and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five
years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.
else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her
boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad
has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist
who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.
and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the
truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid
brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable
attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful
night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one
can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy
as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and
returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she
once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?
I was so lucky to get my hands on
this book. It was fantastic and I'm already dying for more. The story
was well written and kept my attention. The writing was smooth and I
loved all the plot twists. The romance was perfect. I wanted
to swoon, myself. The main guy, Tyler was drool-worthy. He was the
perfect guy and made me wish all men were that awesome! On the supernatural side, this
was by far the best alien story I've read. It's going to be an awesome
trilogy. There were so many things she tied together in the end, yet so
much left open. I highly recommend this book and
can't wait for April when you all get a chance to read it. The Taking
gets five glittery stars for it's wow factor!
