The Vanished Blog Tour
With Review



The Vanished (Blemished, #2)Title: The Vanished
Author:  Sarah Dalton
 Genre: YA, Dystopia
Published: June 27, 2013

“The Compound bustled with action and anticipation, causing my stomach to do a flip. I stopped in my tracks, realising something, something I hadn't thought of before. We were going to war, and people were going to die.”

The Vanished are the forgotten: those who live beyond law or society. Mina fought for freedom. She fought for a better life – a future. But even a free world can decay.

As Mina begins her new life in the Clans she meets people with surprising knowledge about her power, knowledge that could change everything – even her relationship with Daniel. But as she makes new friends, old friends turn against her in shocking betrayal.

Life in the Compound is tough; there are ways and traditions so strange that Mina begins to suspect foul play at the very heart of her new home. Instead of leaving corruption behind in Area 14, Mina is faced with the rotten core of human nature as a Clan warlord threatens to invade the Compound. The Clans are turning against each other and Mina is stuck in the middle.

The Vanished is the second instalment in the Blemished series and follows Mina’s story as she continues to challenge those in power and seek out new dangers. With even more rebellion, romance and betrayal, The Vanished promises to take the reader on a roller-coaster ride of adventure and emotion. 


After reading the first book in the series The Blemished, right before reading this book The Vanished, I was very excited to be able to read them back to back. And The Vanished did NOT disappoint! It was a great follow-up to The Blemished! I enjoyed this book very much. Maybe even more then The Blemished!

The author seems like she has grown in her writing since the first book The Blemished. Her writing seems more thought-out and more fasted-paced. Which definitely makes it more enjoyable! I enjoyed the world building and action and adventure that we have in The Vanished!

The Vanished starts off where The Blemished  left off, with Mina and her friends on their way to Scotland to join the Clans because they are considered "Rule Breakers"! They neglect the rules that the Ministry has set-up for their people. So the ones that rebel against them are called The Vanished, Because to the Ministry the ones who rebel don't exist anymore!

So they leave and travel to Scotland and join the Clans.
 Mina and her group are settling into their new life with The Clans. But Mina is finding it hard to adjust and fit in with the new life set before her! As she learns that the Clans might know a little bit more about her power then she thought, and this could very well be the undoing for her and Daniel! She also learns that the ones that's been the closest to her might very well be the ones to betray her in the end!

The new life Mina has been trying to adjust to slow unravels as people are revealed and war starts with-in her very own compound, and Mina is dead stuck in the middle of it!

So Overall this book is much more fast-paced then the first and the writing seems better. I thinks it's just all around better then the first! I enjoyed it very  much and look forward to the next book in the series!

Author:  Sarah Dalton

Published: August 2012


A beautiful world comes at a price...

In a world filled with stunning clones Mina Hart is Blemished. Her genes are worthless and that takes away her rights: her right to an Education, her right to a normal life and her right to have a child.

Mina keeps a dangerous secret which she never thought she could share until she meets Angela on her first day at St Jude's School. But their friendship is soon complicated by Angela’s adoptive brother Daniel. Mina finds herself drawn to his mysterious powers and impulsive nature. Then there is the gorgeous clone Sebastian who Mina is forbidden from even speaking to…

The Blemished is a frightening take on a fractured future where the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control of Britain. It will take you on a ride filled with adventure, romance and rebellion.
