This book is so outside my normal genres of contemporary romance or mystery, but I found myself captivated by it. This story is part of a series and a standalone listen. I hadn't listened to the first book book in the series, but was immediately pulled into this story. The narrator did a fantastic job with her emotions and the various character voices. The storyline of kidnapping really pulled me in. Futuristic stories typically haven't been my thing, but the performance of the narrator added so much and made it enjoyable. I received a review copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. The author and narrator are both very talented, and I would listen to more of their works. I loved all of the twists this book had, and hadn't figured out who the kidnapper was initially or why.

Narrator, Roshina Ratnam, brings the characters to life. Successfully conveys the incredulity, disbelief and horrific realisation of life threatening situations in the daily existence of JT Lawrence’s central characters.

He told me he was a suicide expert
Set four years after the ending of Why You Were Taken, reunited brother and sister Seth and Kate share his apartment as Kate brings up her twins, Silver and Mally. Kate was still suffering from her previous lifetime ordeal of separation, with panic attacks and flash back nightmares combined with the constant fears that her children would also be stolen. With good reason, it seems, as her closest friend soon discovers as there is a Resurrectionist prophesy that the last of the Genesis children "would lead us to the Edge" , ushering in the end of all humanity - unless he died before his fourth birthday. And Mally was the only one left and would be four in days.
This is a fast paced, futuristic story, which moves rapidly between the lives of the various main protagonists as they try to unravel what is happening as they also attempt to keep the children safe. With mysteries and twists in the action, the book takes the reader on a helta-skelter ride of action and emotion, this time building more in depth character than in the earlier book. Whilst it is possible to read this as a stand alone, without knowledge of what has gone before,, How We Found You would prove a confusing tale to follow.
The narrator is, once again, Roshina Ratnam, whose English accented reading is clear, with good intonation and her voicings of the individual characters is quite well differentiated. Her text readings are not quite fluent, punctuated with tiny pauses in the early stages but either this was altered as the work progressed or else this reader simply blocked them out with familiarity. It was not a major problem, however, merely a slight distraction. As mentioned in a previous review, the timbre of her speech leans towards little girlie, which fits the story well.
A rather mad-cap adventure with some engaging personalities as well as the emotional impact of a mother trying to save her children after she, herself, had endured emotional turmoil throughout her earlier life. I am grateful to the rights holder for freely gifting me a complimentary copy of the book, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. There were parts which thrilled and some which didn't quite hang together, the overall idea was very interesting.
