Taken (Book 1.5)

TAKEN BY THE EMPIRE. TRAINED TO BE A SOLDIER. TURNED INTO A WARRIOR.

Mericon—home of the Empire that formed when America collapsed—offers everything you could want, as long as you have money, connections, and a healthy respect for the Imperial soldiers that could drag you from your family at any time.

When Semuel Gherard is involuntarily conscripted into the Mericonian military, his life changes forever.

Forced to leave everyone he loves behind, Sem begins a new life as a soldier for the empire. To survive, he must set aside his fears and uncertainties and fight for his place among the imperial elite soldiers-in-training.

As he moves up in the ranks, he begins to question everything he knew about Mericon, until he must make a choice that could alter the direction of the country.

Taken is a stand-alone companion novel to the Storm Series. It can be read between books 1 and 2, at the end of the series, or as an introduction to the series. Taken is a great book for fans of dystopian novels for teens or young adult adventure stories.

★★★★★ FIVE STAR REVIEWS FOR STORM TIDE

“This is a wonderful addition or introduction to the Storm series. I was thrilled to get to know Sem as a younger man and see the empire from a little different angle. This book informs the series without ruining it for those who haven’t read it yet. Conversely, if you’ve read the series, you’ll love going deeper into Sem’s background. It’s also a great look at how a person can make the best of a bad situation. I recommend this book to anyone who loves dystopian, coming of age, or adventure.” – T. Deighton
