Taken by Edward Bloor is a mystery/fantasy novel that explores the idea of what the future will be like. It's the year 2030 and kidnapping is one of the most lucrative industries. Charity Meyers, a daughter of a rich family, the prime target for kidnapping, was taken from her family. Following standard procedure, she keeps calm and waits for her parents to pay the ransom. When things don’t go as planned, Charity finds herself in the center of a larger scheme.
Overall, I would give this book 2.5 stars. Although the concept was interesting, it felt drawn out and it couldn’t keep my attention. The flashbacks were a good idea in theory, but in practice it was less compelling and I skipped most of them out of boredom. The twist at the end was predictable, and overall it wasn’t good, but it wasn’t bad either. I would recommend this book to anyone with too much time, or likes mystery novels.
