Romantic and action-packed, The Replaced is the gripping second installment in the Taking trilogy.

Kyra hasn’t been the same since she returned from her mysterious five-year disappearance. Now, on the run from the NSA, Kyra is forced to hide out with others who, like her, have been Returned. Yet she is determined to find Tyler, the boy she loves who was also abducted—all because of her. When her group intercepts a message that Tyler might still be alive but is in the hands of a shadowy government organization that experiments on the Returned, Kyra knows it’s a risk to go after him. What if it’s a trap? And worse, what if the returned Tyler isn’t the same boy she lost?

Perfect for fans of The Fifth Wave and the Body Finder series, The Replaced is both chilling and explosive, with creepy, otherworldly elements and twisty, psychological thrills that will have you questioning what exactly it means to be human.

What’s in Kim’s Purse


I’m pretty minimalist where my purse is concerned, in fact usually I don’t even carry it–I have one of those phone cases that holds my ID and my debit card, and those three things are pretty much all I need. But when I do have my purse you better believe these are my go-to items! As a self-professed tea junkie, I rarely leave the house without some form of caffeine. I also always have either dental floss or these handy-dandy floss picks. (Just ask my husband, he finds them everywhere!) The other thing I can’t seem to live without is hairspray–you’d think I would have bigger hair, wouldn’t you? And strangely enough, I almost always seem to find movie ticket stubs in the bottom of my purse. (This time they were from CINDERELLA and KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE.)



Kimberly Derting is the author of the award winning THE BODY FINDER series, THE PLEDGE trilogy, and THE TAKING and THE REPLACED (the first two books in The Taking trilogy).

Her books have been translated into 15 languages, and both THE BODY FINDER and THE PLEDGE were YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selections.

She lives in the Pacific Northwest, where the gloomy weather is ideal for writing anything dark and creepy. Her three beautiful (and often mouthy) children serve as an endless source of inspiration and frequently find things they say buried in the pages of their mother’s books, or on Twitter for the world to see.

    That was a pretty hilarious picture. I’m fairly minimalist, too, when it comes to my purse, although sometimes you never know what you’re going to find in the bottom of it!
