Taken is a science fiction short story about Aliens taking over the Earth and destroying humanity. This apocalypse tale displays the struggle for survival. As Rachel and her boyfriend try to escape the situation, the story takes a turn on how hard it is to stay alive, and how one sacrifices all for the people they love.
There are other sideline storylines also regarding characters like Mary, Kailey that take place in this tale. However, much to my delight, I enjoyed the concept of survival in this novel.
As mentioned before, the book is short, and with that, some things could improve in later series. The timeline with each side story did not match for me. The plot had many questionable scenarios, where it would distract me from the flow of the work. However, besides this, it was a well-written novella.
It is evident that the author has a passion for writing and I believe it is wonderful to see the ambition and will of literature, within the content of the work so pleasantly laid out.
I recommend this book for people who like to read stories about aliens.
