Amber Alert Series by Sara Schoen Blog Tour



AMBER ALERT (Amber Alert Series #1)

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to violence and sensitive subject matter.

Anna was taken…

Taken from her home to live out a sick game that a guy has been playing for the last ten years.

With no certainty that anyone is looking for her, and seemingly hours away from home, she's forced to play housewife with a man that has had twelve other 'wives'.

Each of them now dead…

With 12 rules and the obvious exits blocked, from the previous girls attempts to flee. Is Anna’s only way out to play along and become a 'loving wife'? Or will she die during the chase?

Would anyone even know what happened to her?

Or would she be labeled as a runaway?

And where is she in the first place?

UIBB REVIEW
Amber Alert (Amber Alert, #1)Amber Alert by Sara Schoen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I started this book I knew it was written by a 19 year old so I didn't go in expecting it to be written like an award winning author. The storyline is really good and I enjoyed reading it however there are a lot of inconsistency within the book. I think that with a little more research done it could be better. Also I had a really hard time with believing some of it. But I enjoyed Anna, a strong female survivor and that Garrett was there to help her. Overall, I give Amber Alert 3.5 stars.

ABDUCTED (Amber Alert Series #2)

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to violence and sensitive subject matter.

Audrey Thomas had been raised by overprotective parents and is sick of it…

After the kidnapping and recovery of her mother, Anna Cowles, eighteen years ago, parents had a harsh awakening as they realized any child could be taken for any reason.

New laws were set in place to protect children, but those same children ignored the rules and went out of their way to get into trouble.

Audrey has always done what she wanted, no matter what the consequences were…

But what happens when her choices lead her to being taken by the one man people feared everyday for the last eighteen years, right up to his execution.

Will she make it out like her mother did?

Or will she suffer the fate of the previous twelve girls?

UIBB REVIEW
Abducted (Amber Alert, #2)Abducted by Sara Schoen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After I finished Amber Alert, I went right into Abducted. At first I was a little confused on time but it was quickly explained and the chase continued. I had a hard time connecting with Audrey but it might have been because this book is paced pretty fast. We get the suspense that we are introduced to in Amber Alert just more of it. At times I felt the things Audrey did were immature and I'm not sure why she acted the way she did when she found out about her parents, seems irrational but I'm not a teen anymore and forgotten what that feels like. Overall I rated this a 3.5, the story is captivating I just wish we could get more details and a longer timeline.

UIBB REVIEW
Apprehended (Amber Alert, #3)Apprehended by Sara Schoen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the Amber Alert series and even though they could be read alone, you miss important details that help with the background of each girl so go back and start with book one! Out of all three books Apprehended is my favorite, it's a quick read but the action is there. I was able to connect with Jessi in this book where the first two I didn't with the main characters. We don't get a lot gory details about what happens after the girls are taken which is fine with me but you get enough to use your imagination. I think this is a good YA series that is suspenseful, dramatic and a little fast paced love at first sight reads. Again this is my favorite in the series and of you want all the details if the characters start at the beginning.

"No! Andy...please!"
I was roughly shoved into the back of  a black car. The door slammed shut, the front door opened soon after and he got in. There was a click, as the car was locked. He threw the car into forward, and took off at an insane speed leaving everyone I knew and cared for behind.
I watched in terror as trees whizzed by, leaving the familiar surroundings behind as the road went from pavement to dirt and the buildings were replaced with large trees and fallen branches. I didn't know where we were going, but I wanted to go home. The locks wouldn’t budge; the child safety lock prevented my escape the moment he had locked me in this god-forsaken car. I had lost my phone in the struggle, and I was stuck in here.
 There were scratch marks and dark spots on the seat. It looked as though someone had tried to claw their way out and I couldn't blame them. Every hair on my neck were standing on end with fear blazing through me. My throat was sore from the screaming, but all the drivers had ignored my pleas for help. They simply kept driving without another sideways glance in my direction.
"Where are you taking me?" I asked again, my voice hoarse from the screams and crying. It was answered the same way, with silence that slowly crept in and made me shudder.
"Shut up!'
"Where are we going?"
"Be a good girl and take orders. Now shut up!"
I wished more than anything to be back at home and under my bed, away from him. The road turned to gravel as we came upon a rundown house, its shudders were falling of the hinges, but what caught me was the windows were boarded up. To prevent escape, I felt a shiver travel up my spine as the car came to a slow stop.
He got out of the car and didn’t unlock the doors until he was at the door. That small click would have brought me relief at any point in the car ride other than now. I pushed against the other side of the car as he reached one long hand in and grabbed me by my ankle and roughly yank me out of the car on to the gravel. A scream ripped through my throat as the gravel cut into my skin and my head hit the side of the car.
"Get up!" he ordered. My head was spinning from everything that had happened, but when I didn't move, he moved me.
His hand grabbed take a large chunk of my hair before he lifted me out of the car, ignoring my cries of pain. He roughly dragged me to the house, I couldn't get my feet to walk and fell often.
The door was solid, he had to slam his body against the wooden blockade and force it open. There was a creak as it slowly opened from his blows, and he threw me inside onto the hardwood floor. There was no carpet, anywhere It would be possible to hear every step from anywhere in the home. The house was bare to the bones, the walls held no photos or phones, rooms remained empty of furniture unless it was bolted to the ground. A new wave of fear ripped through me in realization that he had done this before, he had taken precautions for it.



Sara Schoen began writing in middle school, but did not officially dedicate herself to writing until high school when encouraged by her writing partner. Before then, Sara had not thought about trying to publish her works because it seemed unlikely that anyone would take a chance on someone so young. Despite her previous thoughts, she published her first book, Amber Alert, at the age of nineteen, and began rewriting and editing a spy series that she spent years writing when she was younger. With a lot of hard work and determination, now that same series, which is close to her heart, is a bestseller.

Sara is a Biology Major with a minor in Environmental Science and a minor in Spanish at James Madison University, and spends her time writing, studying, and ghost hunting. While writing is a great hobby that turned into a passion to share with others, school is her priority.

Throughout her publishing journey, Sara has had an amazing support system from her family, friends, and significant other, who were with her every step of the way. She hopes to continue to write, and wants to inspire others to reach for their dreams no matter how far they may seem. She truly believes that dreams can come true at any age, if you put in effort and chase after what you want.
