Gone by Stacy Claflin
One poor decision will haunt her forever.
Macy Mercer only wants a little independence. Eager to prove herself grown up, she goes to a dark, secluded park. She’s supposed to meet the boy of her dreams who she met online. But the cute fifteen year old was a fantasy, his pictures fake. She finds herself face to face with Chester Woodran, a man capable of murder.
Distraught over his own missing daughter, Chester insists that Macy replace his lost girl. He locks Macy up, withholds food, and roughs her up, demanding that she call him dad. Under duress from his constant threats and mind games, her hold on reality starts to slip. Clinging to her memories is the only way of holding onto her true identity, not believing that she is Chester’s daughter. Otherwise she may never see her family again.
Gone is the first novel in the Gone saga, a trilogy of psychological suspense thrillers. If you enjoy page turning suspense with constant twists and turns, then you'll love this nail-biting read.
Other books in the series:
Half a story
This was a captivating story where the characters develop into the people they were made to be. Despite my interest in the story, I will not be reading another. Even in series, there is usually some sort of resolution at the conclusion of the book. This story just stops. Instead of being on the edge of my seat I feel like some one knocked on my door and ran away. So, here I sit at the end of this book saying, 'Well, that was interesting, now where was I?...'
Another cut off storyline
I don't generally write reviews, but I just can't stand books that are incomplete, regardless of their price. This is basically the first half or quarter of the story, stopped in the middle.
I also wasn't blown away by the quality of the writing or the characters. Everyone in the book was just about as mindlessly cliché (and often stupid) as possible.
Really, just skip it.
Worst book ever
I don't know why there are so many good reviews . The whole book was repetitive , had very little action and suspense . The only reason why I kept reading was to see how she escapes but that never happens . The book just abruptly stops . It was very poorly written and all over the place . I will not be reading any more of these.
