    1. Merhaba, 2018'in ilk kitabı Kayplar'ı #okudumbitti.İlk kitap Lekeliler'i sevmemiştim, tamam konusu güzel ama gerisi yok. Yazar açıkçası boş bir kurgu çıkarmıştı ama dedim ki bu daha iyidir belki. Ama tık yok!😒İlk kitabın sonunda, Mina ve arkadaşları İskoçya'ya gitmişti, Direniş'e katılmışlardı.İkinci kitap, hemen burdan başlıyor. Direniş' in toplandığı yerde de tuhaf şeyler olmaktadır. Mina gibi başkaları da vardır ve bu diğer kişilerin Mina'yla ortak [...]

    2. (I read this book for R2R program in Making Connection YA Edition Group. I received a free copy in exchange for a review)The Vanished is second installment followed The Blemished, a dystopian story written by Sarah Dalton. The story follows Mina Hart, the blemished girl, after she ran away from the Ministry into the Clans and joins the vanished.Mina struggle a lot in earlier story, she must find a way to fit into the society that turns out, not as good as she thought it gonna be. They have their [...]

    3. OMG! Amazing! This book was awesome! Very intense, action packed, full of drama. This book is even better than book 1, the Blemished. It's a page turner for sure! I couldn't put this down and I can't wait to move on to the 3rd book, The Fractured: Elena. What an exciting series! Sarah Dalton you are an amazing writer and I am so glad that I was given an opportunity to read your books.

    4. More action than the first novel. There was also more attempts at explaining or describing the use of the "freaks" powers which were in my opinion forced. Didn't elaborate enough on the other characters thoughts/experiences to make me care about them. Mostly just got annoyed with the main character and left me not wanting to continue on with the series.

    5. This one was much slower paced than the first in the series. I found that unlike the first one, I could set this one down. I really wanted to know more about the other societies outside of the compound. That was my favorite part of the book. Sarah Dalton did a wonderful job there, I could really picture Sun and his followers. The ending to this book felt a little too neat for me, and the fight at the end was just too easy and abrupt. If your powers are that great sometimes, yet other times can't [...]

    6. This series was just OK for me. I liked the storyline, but the writing was not great.

    7. Ugh, that's it. I'm calling it. I can't finish this series.We start off with the group arriving in Scotland and hoping to find safety with the clans. Obviously they aren't going to find it. I'd hoped we'd be returning to England to learn more about the GEMs and the resistance instead we get some more sexism and prejudice in a different setting. We still don't even learn what's happening anywhere else in the world or get any sort of explanation as to why Scotland went to crap because of the GEM s [...]

    8. Thank you, Ms. Dalton, for providing me a copy in exchange for a review.In my experience, I was a little bored from reading The Blemished because there was a lack of action. I tend to like action or fast-paced books. The first book in this trilogy didn't provide that much action, but The Vanished certainly does! The second book was extraordinary and I have no doubt now that Ms. Dalton is capable of writing a riveting novel. I was satisfied and then some with the contents of this book.The Vanishe [...]

    9. This book is the second part of a trilogy (as of this date) and picks up where book one ended. As such, if you haven't read book one, you may be asking yourself questions about the world and its characters.Here's a brief summary of book one, "The Blemished." Mina resides in what was once the UK. She lived in the London zone that was broken down into areas whose society revolved around those with perfect genes and those with "blemished" genes. Mina, as a "blemished one," was forced to hide her ap [...]

    10. Oh. My. Flipping. Pancakes. If I thought The Blemished was good (which I did since I rambled endlessly about it to all my friends), The Vanished was like twenty-thousand times better! The characters, the plot, the action, the romance, the suspensel of it was fantastic!Mina, Sebastian, Daniel, and Angela have all escaped to the Clans in Scotland. But what looks like a perfect haven from the outside is exactly the opposite on the inside. We meet several new characters, including Hiro (omg I want a [...]

    11. I think my review for "The Blemished" could be essentially copied and pasted here, and would still be accurate to a "T". I'm definitely not the target audience, but I enjoyed it, and would recommend it young adult readers. I will put the caveat on "Vanished" that I thought about putting on "Blemished" (way down though, since it might be spoiler-y), but in the end, I wish there had been more time to get to know the Neds and the Children of the Sun, so I really shouldn't complain.Doesn't mean I wo [...]

    12. It’s always great when a sequel picks up right where the last instalment in a series left off. The reader isn’t left wondering or guessing what happened in the interim period. That is exactly what Dalton did with this novel. It was made all the better and much trickier by the fact that the first instalment in the series wasn’t a cliff-hanger. That said, once into this novel, it was completely different (yet somehow still the same) as its predecessor.This novel was just as intense as the fi [...]

    13. Check out this review and more at: apocalypsereads/I was very excited that I only had to wait six months to read the sequel! The Vanished picks us right where The Blemished leaves off. The heart-pounding action of book one greets you as you begin book two. Mina, Daniel, and Angela have been saved from Murder-Troll, but will they reach the compound? Dalton teases the reader for a couple of chapters. Once they reach the compound one might think all is good.Most people might relax once they reach s [...]

    14. Warning: this review contains spoiler for the first book in the series, The Blemished.Mina and her friends are now safe in the Compound, a Clan settlement beyond the Scottish border. The peopel living there are called the Vanished, because they life outside law and society. There, children are still born naturally, and people live by farming and raising cattle.Mina is reunited with her father. She discovers why he abandoned her: he was trying to reunite kids with different powers, similar to her [...]

    15. After finishing book 1 I just had to know more, I immediately bought it from on my kindle app. I'm still not a massive fan of ebooks but they certainly have their uses. This starts right where book 1 left off, Mina has managed to escape Area 14 and has made her way to Scotland, it's supposed to be a safe haven but things aren't all what they expected. The clans aren't quite what Mina expected, there is split groups, arguments and dissension between the members and Mina is thrust into the heart [...]

    16. 'The Vanished' is the second book in a young adult dystopian series that continues where the first installment left off - with Mina Hart escaping from Area 14 into the Clans to freedom and to reunite with her dad. Even though this new place is supposed to be a fresh start, Mina begins to suspect things aren't as they appear in the Clans, especially when her best friend turns against her and the other people in the compound are extra wary of her. There's a war brewing between the Clans, with Mina [...]

    17. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I don't know how Sarah Dalton did it, but she exceeded the previous book in this trilogy. I couldn't imagine this trilogy getting any better, but she raised the bar and it has! This book picks up right from where the first book ended, which I really appreciated since the first book ended with nerve wracking action. :)Mina has really come into her own and does a lot of growing in this installment. She's wiser, braver [...]

    18. I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side!Firstly I would like to thank Sarah Dalton, author of The Vanished, for letting me read and review this wonderful book.Well, one word for the author and for this book, HATS OFF!!! I loved this book and every part of it satisfied me. I really appreciated book 1 and let me tell you that this book just knocked me off, literally. The story line became more interesting in this sequel with it's power-packed act [...]

    19. This picks up right, and I do mean RIGHT where The Blemished ends. If you haven’t read The Blemished in a while, don’t fret, there are a few reminders thrown in so you can fully remember how everything fits.Mina is much stronger in this than in The Blemished but there is still so much for her to learn. But she’s willing to put everything on the line, including her life. She’s so much older than her years but this is how everyone is in this dystopian world. The other characters are also j [...]

    20. The one thing that I liked the most about the second book in this series is that although it is the second book, it has a complete and total different feel to it then the first. But in a good way. Normally I find that second books in series either have the same type of vibe or are completely different from the first that there is no connection.In The Vanished, they are in a completely different area and it is something totally new and different from The Blemished and Area 14. It is a lot heavier [...]

    21. The Vanished are the forgotten people. they escaped from the society that restricted pregnancy, to form a small society with different believes. after joining the Vanished, Mina continued to fight for her freedom together with the Freaks. their small group consists of children with different ability. Mina the telekinesis, Daniel the seer, Hiro the mind reader, Mike able to taste emotions, where else Kitty smelled them. while they fought for a better life at the compound, they found that it could [...]

    22. In "The Vanished" Mina and her friends have left the oppressive, genetically enhanced society in Britain and have found a home in a Clan in Scotland. But all is not what it seems. Instead of finding a safe haven, Mina and her friends are confronted by corruption in its leadership, by unrealistic fears of the people and unsettling rituals; all of which Mina is determined to change. As war looms three children- Hiro, Kitty and Mike- also labelled as 'Freaks' because of their unusual powers join Mi [...]

    23. A lot packed into one book. At times felt it was a bit too much, a tad too ambitious. Also, often the plot or moods seemed oddly overtaken by romance Vanished definitely showed the sad state of affairs - how society is ruled by prejudice. There was a theme of the need for equality and freedom of choice throughout the novel.Mina was so impulsive. You'd think after hiding her gift for years, she'd think first before using it. Nope. The majority of the kids had such temper issues, lacking in self-c [...]

    24. my thoughts - This book picks up right after the first one ends. mina hart and her friends danial, sebastian and angela go on an adventure to the clans. It is a place within scottland that her father wants her to flee for safety. This adventure is nothing short of heroic, mind boggling and torturous. She sets out for her safety but in the end she truly finds who she is as an individual and where she honestly belongs. She and her friends are forced to go through {self-discover [...]

    25. I wouldn't say that this book was written fantastically, but it was an exciting sequel to The Blemished. The action was much slower and the plot wasn't as complex, but that is typical of the middle book in a trilogy. I haven't read book three yet, but I think this book will have provided good background information, and I hope book three will use that wisely.In this tale, Mina suffers the rejection that comes with being different. She has enemies that visually attack her and there are other enem [...]

    26. This book is very second wave feminist in the way it looks at gender. The author tries to call out equality as the most beneficial way of ruling, but she doesn't mean equality. She means women are superior to men, according to men's standards, and that men should know what's good for them and agree with that. There is no appreciation for diversity within genders and there is absolutely no love of femininity. If anything, femininity is frowned upon: it is impossible for Mina to believe that women [...]

    27. I won this book on and so glad I did. I loved how this story picked right up where The Blemished left off. Mina and her friends didnt quite find the life they thought they were running to. Young mothers being encouraged to give birth at 16, over and over. The doctor who is a bit too interested in Mina, and the other young adults with special powers. Young Hiro who can read minds and knows the doc is hiding something intentionally. Mina and Angelas friendship is put to the test. Sebastian just c [...]

    28. I was expecting this second installment to carry on from the first. Instead, the characters were essentially thrown into a new situation. Of course Mina has to save everyone. She is definitely a strong female character and is very head strong. She seems to only have two modes-needs to be a savior or falling apart because of relationships. That said, it was an interesting story and we learn a little more about her powers. It turns out there are a few other kids with powers. I am still waiting to [...]

    29. Estava pronta para dar duas estrelas a este livro, mas o último terço melhorou-o consideravelmente. Foi mais rápido, intenso e consistente, um pouco mais como o primeiro. Aprendi uma palavra nova hoje, "BAMF", que significa em todo o seu esplendor Bad Ass Motherfucker, e aplica-se á personagem principal desta saga, Mina Hart, a única razão que me leva a acabar a continuar a série até ao fim. Ela é tudo o que uma miúda de 15 anos pode desejar ser, linda sem o saber, justiceira com arcab [...]

    30. In The Vanished, they are in a completely different area and it is something totally new and different from The Blemished and Area 14. It is a lot heavier and a lot more emotion in The Vanished. I really loved Ali right from the start. We met him in book 1, but we really get to now him in this book and I just fell in love! He proves to be a loyal friend, which is something that Mina needs. In book 2, we meet "the freaks" who are people like Mina, but not with the same gift. I love how this all p [...]
