Waiting on Wednesday: The Countdown (The Taking #3) by Kimberly Derting

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  This week it is the 3rd book in a series that I really have enjoyed. My reviews for them are here:  The Taking and The Replaced.  And here is the blurb from Goodreads for the 3rd book in the series:


She may no longer be human…but she’s their only hope.

Every morning since she was abducted and then returned to Earth, Kyra Agnew has felt a searing pain in her gut. It’s as unavoidable as the dawn and comes like clockwork. Too busy running from a shady government agency and rescuing Tyler, the boy she loves, Kyra hasn’t had enough energy to focus on what the strange, stabbing sensation could mean. Then Kyra is captured by an unexpected enemy who knows exactly what the pain is: a signal that time is running out. The aliens are coming, and Kyra fears they will destroy everyone in their path.

As much as she hates to admit it, technically, Kyra is an alien too—they replaced all of her human DNA with their own. But in doing so, the aliens gave her supernatural gifts, like incredible healing, enhanced eyesight, and telekinetic powers. Now Kyra has to wonder…are her new abilities actually a curse? Is she, as her captors believe, meant to play some key role in helping the alien invasion? Is it programmed into her, something inescapable? Or can she fight that destiny?

No matter what the truth is, Kyra is sure of one thing. She just got Tyler back and she is not going to stand by and let anyone hurt him or her friends. Whatever it takes, Kyra will do everything in her power to save the world…even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.


Have you read this series yet?  Are you as excited for then next book as I am?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. After the ending of the second book, I'm dying to get my greedy hands on this book to see how it all ends.
