There’s something different about Kate’s four-year-old son. He wasn’t created the old fashioned way. Now a violent cult wants him dead and Kate will do anything to protect him – until they take her daughter.
In tomorrow’s world, Kate is haunted by a brutal past. Struggling to navigate a life that seems like an experiment in virtual reality, her paranoia threatens to consume her. But when someone tries to kidnap Mally, she realises she was absolutely right to be afraid.
With only hours to go before the cult’s prophecy is to be fulfilled, Kate and Seth face more danger than they’ve ever imagined, desperate to keep him safe. However, the charismatic leader of the cult has other ideas, which puts Kate in an impossible position. Who will she choose to live, and who will she have to sacrifice?

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by JT Lawrence. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Kate is a single mother of two but has the support of her twin brother Seth as well as an excellent nanny. She is trying to be a good mom while dealing with the loss and betrayal of her husband and PTSD from the events that occurred a few years ago. She’s always scared that someone is going to try to take her children just like she was taken when she was young. When Kate’s seemingly unfounded fears become reality, the suspense ramps up.
While Kate is dealing with her life, her friend KeKe knows she needs to be with Kate, but her life suddenly goes out of control at the same time.
Between Kate and KeKe, I couldn’t stop listening! Roshina Ratnam also narrated the first book and I like the continuity. She does a great job with timing and enunciation.
I definitely recommend How We Found You. It is a stand-alone but I read Why You Were Taken first and I’m glad I did. It makes the story even better. Now, I have to listen to What Have We Done to see what happens next.
