Everyone leaves Reeve’s End, and Winter Crane can’t wait until she’s one of those statistics. Once she finishes school she’ll be able to escape, like her friend Edie and her sister Cady did. She already knows what she wants to do with her life - go to college, go to med school. Until then, she just needs to bide her time and avoid her father as much as possible.
But when she discovers a boy who is beaten and unconscious, she can’t bring herself leave him and hope that the sheriff’s office will do their job. If the pack of wild dogs roaming free in the woods don’t get him, his attacker might come back to finish what he started.
She knows helping him could be a risk. But she is a capable hunter. She knows these woods. And if he isn’t actually a victim, between her hunting knife, switchblade, and bow and arrows, she should be able to fend him off.
She just never imagined that her one act of kindness would get her caught up in solving a mystery that goes beyond what happened to the injured boy, one that makes her a target, and one that jeopardizes her chance at ever leaving Reeve’s End.
Kelley Armstrong penned a story that is exciting and terrifying and unexpected. She created a strong, clever, daring, and persistent heroine in Winter and she partnered her with Jude, a boy who is calculating, dangerous, and secretive. The mystery is complex. The story tension-filled. And the outcome unpredictable. All of which make for a gripping and electrifying read.
Those who prefer their thrillers spine-tingling, their puzzles not instantly solvable, their criminals cunning, manipulative, and malevolent, their crime solvers fierce, determined, and relentless, and their crimes on the darker side, will absolutely love Kelley Armstrong’s MISSING.
This isn’t the first YA book of hers that I have read, but I think it is the first one that doesn’t fall into the fantasy/supernatural category. Overall, this one isn’t really my favorite of hers. While the main character/narrator/heroine, Winter, is quite likable in many ways – as are the Bishop brothers Jude and Lennon, there is just something about this one that just didn’t work for me. Maybe it’s in part due to the plot, which despite being action-packed feels oddly predictable? Maybe it was the whole feral dog situation that I just couldn’t get over… I know that I am not the only one who will be upset by the dog violence (if this was a movie, I think it would be heavily edited, too) despite the pains that Armstrong takes to justify it. It is the violence level, rather than the PG romance, that I think makes this book not ideal for the younger end of the YA audience. And though it is not my favorite book of hers, I still read it quickly and am still looking forward to seeing what she will write next!
Young adult is not a genre I read that often, but I've lately been reading up on Kelley Armstrong and this book seemed interesting and it turned out to be quite a good book. For a YA is it actually really good. However, despite that Armstrong managed to create a really great female lead characters and also write an interesting story, did I not completely fall for the story, especially not the ending. I don't know, it just didn't really intrigue me and I felt that the book lacked suspense.
Missing was an interesting book. I came to like Winter very much, she is a strong character and I loved how Winter, despite her upbringing has a goal in life. I also loved the little town of Reeve's End, there is just something special about town like this, far from civilization. The best part of the book was the beginning when everything was still a mystery and one wondered what was going on, what had happened with all the youngster? Personally, would I have loved a paranormal angle to the story, but it worked as a thriller, despite the lack of a truly suspenseful ending.
