Review: Audrey Thomas has grown up all her life with the ‘Anna’ laws. What she doesn’t know is they were enacted due to the horrible ordeal her very own mother and father endured. Audrey feels chafed by the laws and decides to continue doing as she pleases, without fear for the consequences. What Audrey doesn’t realize, at first, is her actions led her straight into the arms of the one man who has terrorized parents for the last two decades. Will Audrey escape or will she become the killer’s thirteenth victim? ABDUCTED has the same powerful writing and solid characters as the first book, AMBER ALERT. However, I couldn’t get over how willfully ignorant and disobedient Audrey was. I understand her parents didn’t want to expose her to all of the terrifying details of her parents’ torment, but Audrey was unwilling to listen. Obviously, it’s a “teenager growing up in a sheltered environment” thing but it made me want to shake her many times! While I did enjoy AMBER ALERT more, ABDUCTED is definitely a well-written book in its own right. It’s a credit to the author to make readers feel so much for the characters. Make sure you read AMBER ALERT first and then dive right into ABDUCTED!
