If you had any feelings that Enchantment was a fluke, you were dead wrong!

On my review of Enchantment I said it was a sweet love story... if that's true Taken it's slight darker counterpart. While I really enjoyed Enchantment I loved Taken. I had not expected to like Enchantment so much when I picked it up but it pleasantly surprised me. Taken pulled me out of my chair into a gripping adventure, it was absolutely more my style. I still feel like you can safely let your teens read this series and

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

It’s always exciting to receive an advance copy of a book you’ve been dying to read. You feel a little special and nervous at the same time. You wonder will this book be as good as the first. Will I be able to honestly give a great review after the author shared their hard work with you?

Let me just say, I have no problems here. This book starts off about right where we left off. Channie and Josh together at last but in a peril

I had the wonderful opportunity to read this story. And I must say, Charlotte Abel has outdone herself. The story of Channie and Josh runs twist and turns that rival a modern day roller coaster. Never say that things get easier for those two, because it didn’t.

Life together brought on a whole other set of challenges that this couple had to face. Being independent wasn’t easier than living with their families. Like all people, mistakes would be made along the way. Charlotte capitalizes on this t
I received this book for the author for free for an honest review.

Okay Charlotte Abel you are now one of my favorite authors!! I loved this book. It was better then the first one because the characters are coming into their own. We get a more mature sense of Channie and Joshes relationship, even if it includes a lot of sex lol. I like how we get to see Josh learn and grow with his powers. I liked how Hunter, even though he was in love with Channie step down and let Josh be her man and helped jos
What a ride! Taken is the second book in the Channie series and I absolutely cannot wait for the third!

The title: Perfect – although I didn’t understand it until the very last chapter.

The heroine, Channie: Young, honest, considerate and real. She doesn’t always make the best decision, but all her decisions are pure of heart. Channie is one of those fictional characters that I’d like to hang out with for a day.

The hero, Josh: He is level-headed, strong, and deeply in love with Channie. I like tha

I should say that this book was better than the previous one. The characters have grown and with them the author's skills. The beginning was a little slow, and kind of made me want to slap Channie and Josh for being such crybabies. It felt like the only thing Josh wanted to do was have sex and that's it. It was so annoying.
I was so glad about that encounter with the two trackers, that you wouldn't believe it!! Finally everyone was rushing to do something meaningful! Something other than argue o
Maddy Edwards
It really makes me so very happy when the second book in a series is just as good, if not better, than the first. Yay! So, having just read Enchantment, I had to pick up Taken as soon as I could get my hands on it and I'm very glad that I did. Taken has action and romance in abundance and I couldn't put it down. The perfect way to spend an afternoon. Third book please.

Thank you SOOOO MUCH Mrs. Charlotte Abel for writing this book!!! and for sending me an ARC copy (even though I bought a copy and re-read it too LOL)... If I could say in one sentence how I feel about this book, it's this.... Maghon says, "a book that had me happy, sad, frustrated, conflicted, emotional, and DEVASTATED all in a few hours time (as I DID NOT put it down for anything, or stop reading)... I WILL NOT compare you to any other author, as you are unique in your own, and you deserve to h ...more
Charlotte has done it again! We pick up where Enchanment left off with Channie and Josh sort of, kind (and no I'm not going to tell you why I said that will you read the book) of happily married and living in a shack. Teenagers acting like bunny rabbits but also scared of everything that's unknown in the world especially what'll happen to them during this upcoming war.

Not only do we see Josh and Channie stronger then ever we see them take on a whole new kind of crazy with Channie's mother (you'

Charlotte Abel did it again. She blew me away with Taken! The sequel to Enchantment picks up right where she left off and continues to delight me. All of my favorite characters are back to thrill me again.

Mild Spoiler Alert if you have not read Enchantment: Book One.

Josh and Channie are back and more in love than ever. They are keeping busy turning their little shack into a home. Still in hiding from Dominance, they try to stay hidden at the secret training camp. There is still a price on Channi
this is freaking OH MY GOSH!! I'm all hysterical here! How can Charlotte Abel ended Taken like that! this is so not happening! where's the damn third book?! I won't have a peace of mind until I read the sequel! *deep breath* okay, I'm really trying to stay calm here. So, finishing Taken really blows my mind! I mean, WHAT THE HELL?! my heart was broken after what happened to Channie and Josh at the end. that really stung. but anyway, I'm so much loving this book inspite of the heartbreaking endin ...more
I waited months for this book to be ready and I couldn't get my hands on it fast enough. Everything that I love about Charlotte Abel's writing was back but even more intense than in Enchantment. I adore the characters and the drama is smart and funny. The cliffhanger at the end is killing me. I must know what happens next! ;-) Can't wait for the 3rd book to be released. Write quickly Charlotte!!!!

Oh, and I just saw that there is a contest to win a date with Hunter in the next book. Since he's my

Channie and Josh's misadventures continue in this somewhat darker, but still charming, sequel to "Enchantment." As soon as I started the book, I felt as if I were right there with them. The chase scene between Josh and Rider made my heart pound. Hunter made me laugh out loud. Channie's mother made me furious. The final scene made me cry and left me gasping. I need the third book, now!
The ending of Taken is just ...O.M.G... I don't even have the right words for it. To me Taken was better than Enchantment, especially the second half of the book! I love this serie, but there has got to be a next book in this serie. But when?? when?? This end is killing me ;) Please write the third book as soon as possible...please :P
Oh my gosh I can't wait for the third book to come out. This book was awesome. I feel so bad for Channie having to deal with her parents and yet I am so excited for her and Josh. These books are just full of surprises. I couldn't put them down once I started reading them. If you like magic you will love this series.

I gave this book 5 STARS!!!! Awesome YA paranormal romance story it made me believe in the “night in shining armor” again.

Loved the story, the characters, everything!!!

LOOOOVE Josh and Channie!!! Josh is the true meaning behind VALOR. Really liked Hunter and thought Aunt Wisdom was too funny for words.
This series gets better with each book. I love how you can feel the depth and devotion between Channie and Josh in the way the story is written. It was a real page turner with lots more action than the first book. I am anxiously waiting for the next book
I really liked Enchantment, but I inhaled Taken. I could not put it down. I think the series really hit its stride with this book. Channie and Josh are one couple you just can't help but root for. My only complaint is the wait for the third book!
Rhonda Bergamo
I thought Enchantment was amazing, but I was wrong, this one surpasses that one. I can't wait for 3rd and final book. OMG this is a definite read.
Really, really liked this one! The second book had much more action and romance and bright everything together.
I can’t wait until book three!
Oh book three where r u

"Taken", is the second book of the "Channie" series and what an awesome continuation of the series. I stayed up all night last night as I could not put this book down!
Josh and Channie continue on their road to being married and have many struggles along the way. This book takes them through many hard times but through it all they remain strong in their love for each other. Most of the people from the last book revisit in this one and it was nice to get to see Abby (Channie's sister)as well as be

In the second installment of Channie's story, we pick up right where we left off with a married Josh and Channie hiding out in the Ozark mountains. If you at all felt even the slightest bit bored or aggravated with Channie in the first won't feel that way with Taken, I can promise you that.

Channie has grown up quite a bit in Taken. Josh still struggles between what he knows to be right and what could potentially save his and Channie's lives. Hunter is still a wee bit annoying, but I
I've been meaning to review this for a while:)I'll finish it up soon, but i just wanted to say what an amazing author Charlotte Abel is and how great this book is. I loved it, theres even a quote in the synopsis above that quotes me saying that I loved it and couldnt put it down!
If you liked Enchantment, then you will love Taken. It is everything you loved about Enchantment and more, more action, more magic, more love. And when it ends, your going to wish the third book was already out. The char
