Finished reading the Taken Trilogy...

...and I stand by my earlier thoughts that it's an ok read. However, there were bits that I was frustrated by. Characters seem to have strong opinions at some points, completely and inexplicably change those opinions, and when they finally are confronted with queries as to this change, come up with rather lackluster reasonings. I also felt like things were restated, often repeatedly, which I found frustrating. If you'd been following the story, you wouldn't need the problems the protagonists faced spelled out, again and again. But with those two quibbles, I'll admit that I was curious to see how it would end, that the read passed quickly, and that I'd welcome more books set in that universe. There are some good ideas there that I'd love to see explored further. Except for the kissing horse faced aliens bit. I'm entirely ok leaving that fertile soil untilled.
