Released has a fantastic cover. I love the tough girl, ready to your kick-butt attitude. It definitely made me want to read this book. The cover is just the beginning of what's fantastic about Released. Megan Duncan did awesome on the storyline and the characters. But, I do have to say the characters are what made this book great for me.
(MY THOUGHTS) 5 STARS!!!!!
Duncan gave the four of them strong, individual personalities. Abby, with her tomboy-kick-butt on the outside, but definitely all girl on inside, I connected with her on the first page. Then we have Carter, her brother, who is a brainiac geek and gets a little altitude if you disagree with him and doesn't have a clue about when a girl likes him. Which brings me to Taya. She is a head-strong girl who can kick butt, too, and she also has her heart set on getting what she wants. And that would be Carter. So this situation between them gives me a few good laughs. But the one I love the most was Max, who is good-looking, strong, and confident and always sees the glass half full. Max is definitely the courageous one of this foursomes. Abby and Max has liked each other for a long time. But these two never acted on their feelings. It took an apocalypse and a few demons to finally stir things up between them. I really loved the double romances Duncan had going on with Abby and Max—the hot and I love you kind, and Taya and Carter—the fun and laughs kind, with Taya chasing poor Carter.
The storyline in Released was an awesome one with these four teenagers taking on an apocalypse demon world and war. They have been thrown into this world and survival depends on their will to fight and win. I recommend Released as a must read. You will love these four amazing teenagers.
