    The Wikk family lives in a futuristic time and world, where the past is the key to the future. As archaeologists, the Wikk parents are constantly on one adventure after another. With their eldest son in the Academy, and the three younger children at school, they prepare to go on a dig that will expose the truth of their origins. But just as the plan is falling into place, a man in black, Captain Vedrick, interferes with the family's departure. Taken hostage by a man involved with a sinister group that has more money and resources save the Republic they are a part of, the Wikk parents have no choice but to order their son to escape with the younger children.

    At seventeen, Oliver firmly believe that he is a man. When his parents are kidnapped by a wicked man and his band of soldiers, Oliver has no choice but to take charge of the family. Completely confident that he can handle his twin brothers and a sister two years his junior, Oliver sits behind the controls of the newly refurbished ship - the Phoenix. Things go awry from the very beginning. Never having actually flown a ship before, but with a year's training at the Academy under his belt, he outmaneuvers the solders to escape. But time is running out, and the longer they take figuring out the clues, the less likely they are to find and rescue their parents. Will the children be able to climb every hurdle thrown at them? Or will they fall to the same fate as their parents; capture and then disappearance into thin air?

    I was somewhat skeptical coming into this book. Despite all the good reviews, how attention catching can young adult fiction really be? Either I'm a kid at heart or Eastman is just that good. I loved every moment of this book; the story, the characters, the made up weapons and technology, just everything. The writing was imaginative, creative and absolutely believable. This story is not just for kids, it is for adults of any age.

    This book was provided by P&R Publishers for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Taken is a fiction book written for preteens and young teens and is first in The Quest for Truth series of five books. My two oldest sons and I just finished reading it and can't wait for the next book to come out in May! "Taken" is published by P&R Publishing and Focus on the Family, and I thank them for sending us a copy so we could review it for you here.

    The story is set in the future and is an interplanetary adventure, which surely added to the excitement for both the boys and me. It had the feel of Star Trek or Star Wars, except with a major focus on a family. At the beginning of the story the four kids' parents are kidnapped, so Oliver, Tiffany, Austin, and Mason have to fly their spaceship to another planet to try to discover some clues to help them. While there, the younger boys encounter a group of people who try to hold them prisoner. The whole book is full of suspense. My son said he didn't even want to read anything else until the next Quest for Truth book (Risk) comes out-but, sorry, you can't stop reading for 3 months!

    God isn't mentioned in the book, but the focus of the parents' archaeological searching is to find the secrets of the beginning of life. One of the characters says that he feels that "Someone" has been guiding him. So, I expect that their Quest for Truth will lead them to the truth of God!

    I would definitely recommend this book to preteens and young teens (and their parents). :)

    This book kept me on edge. I just couldn't put the book down. All the excitement, action, and adventure. Kids will love this. There are so many cliff hangers. I love reading it over and over again. Thank you so much Brock Eastmen for writing this awesome book!

    This book is very hard to put down! Each chapter is filled with danger, adventure and excitement. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next, and if the kids were going to get out of the situations that they were in. Taken is an exciting start to the Quest for Truth series. I'm excited to read the rest of the books in this series as they come out. I just have to find out how the whole thing is going to end.

    I highly recommend this book to young adults who enjoy futuristic novels.

    (I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)
