Book Trailer! - Taken by Erin Bowman8:00 AM
The book trailer for Erin Bowman's debut novel Taken, the first in a new dystopian trilogy, premiered yesterday on Epic Reads!
I'll admit, I'm a lot more wary to begin any new dystopian books these days because it's getting harder for them to stand out, but maybe Erin Bowman's Taken can step up to the challenge. I love the cover and I think it's refreshing to see a male POV! And I'm totally curious to learn what's beyond the Wall...
Enjoy the book trailer!

Summary (from HarperTeen):
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 he's gone.
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby's eighteenth birthday is mere 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 structure that no one can cross and survive.
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken—or risk everything on the hope of the other side?
