The official book trailer for TAKEN, Erin Bowman‘s heart-pounding, futuristic debut, has arrived and Epic Reads has the exclusive! *Does happy dance*

Watch the trailer below and find out more about this upcoming dystopian release!



There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends . . . and the boy is gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is just months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate—until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot—a wall that no one has ever crossed and survived.

Desperate for answers, Gray takes his chances and climbs over. On the other side, he finds himself in a world unlike anything he believed possible. A world where Claysoot is held under a magnifying glass, a piece of an intricately detailed scientific experiment. Gray has no idea who to trust—and he soon realizes that searching for answers could be deadly.
