Review: The Replaced by Kimberley Derting

Featured imageI read this a month ago so I have sort of forgot what I wanted to say about it.  (Note to self: Make notes while reading)  So this is going to be a sketchy.

The Replaced is the sequel of the The Taken. It’s about Kyra, who is abducted by aliens for five years but to her she has only been gone for hours.  In those five years, she hasn’t aged a day but everyone else has.  Her boyfriend is now in college and dating her best friend, her parents are divorced and her  Mom is remarried and has a child.  The most interesting development is that the younger brother of her ex-boyfriend, Tyler is now her age and is of course hot.  As Kyra tries to piece together what happened to her, she falls in love with Tyler, finds other abductees and discovers a conspiracy with the government and the aliens that abducted her.  I could go on but I feel that would spoil The Taken so I  leave it here.

The book is good and just okay. The characters a likeable enough but not completely memorable.  I liked it enough that I’ll read the next book.  The ending I found intriguing as I think we will finally get some answers as to what the aliens want with us.  I think that has been missing from the plot so far:  the reason why teenagers are being abducted and then returned after their DNA is changed so that they age more slowly.  Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is it’s a good book.  I’ll try to do better the next review.

  1. I also generally find that if I don’t get my thoughts down about a book within a couple of days of reading it that I lose my train of thought or many insights regarding it.


  2. yeah, lesson learned. I have notes for other books I’ve read that I’m waiting to review closer to release date. I just chock this up as a learning process
