"Kennedy Stern survived an abduction, but old scars cut deep. Vivid flashbacks and terrifying dreams paralyze her, threatening to ruin her academic career and any chance she has at peace or happiness. This mental anguish, however, constitutes only a small fraction of her post-traumatic nightmare. A partner in Kennedy's kidnapping remains at large and will not stop until he has silenced her witness permanently. His violent resolve risks not only her life, but the safety of anyone who tries to help. Kennedy must engage in a deadly battle of the mind as she struggles to stay alive. While fighting on two fronts -- one psychological and one physical -- the question isn't whether she'll come out of the war stronger in the end. The question is whether she'll come out of it at all"--back of book.… (mais)

Paralyzed absorbed me like Unplanned, Alana Terry’s first book in her Kennedy series, did. The main character, Kennedy, now a Harvard sophomore continues on after last year’s traumatic experiences. Anxiety has become a constant companion and post traumatic stress syndrome overwhelms her becoming an obstacle in her classes and relationships. A perpetrator leftover from Unplanned wants her dead. Everyone she loves remain in danger; her roommate, her pastor and his wife, the youth pastor, and anyone near her are not safe. The suspense fills the novel. Kennedy, also struggles with her faith in God questioning why he allows violence and pain to harm innocent people. The author includes different viewpoints to answer her inquiry. No preaching here! I immediately moved on to the third book in this series, Policed to discover what Kennedy confronts next. ( )

Paralyzed is a suspense-filled book in the Kennedy Stern series by Alana Terry. Kennedy has returned to college after her harrowing experience being the victim of a high-profile crime. Had it really only been one semester? She felt like an entirely different person having endured a lifetime of experiences that strengthened her and yet left some ugly scars. Just who is that man following her? She thought she was safe now. Is it just the nightmares affecting her imagination? Will she be a victim forever, helpless...paralyzed...a slave to her fears? But Kennedy is a Christian, doing all the right things, what is happening? The author does a marvelous job describing post-traumatic stress disorder as Kennedy goes through the normalcy of her college life. And then what is normal about a sabotaged subway and a car chase with guns a blazing? Paralyzed is full of suspense, drama and raw emotional stress and yet woven through it all is a sense that God is in control and can give a peace despite a dangerous world full of dangerous, cruel people. Another great book by a favorite author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Club network. A review, favorable or otherwise, was not required and opinions are my own. ( )

Paralyzed by alana Terry
This is the second book in the series about Kennedy who's returned from China and is attending Harvard in Boston. She has gone through a terrible kidnapping and is back at college now.
They have captured the last of the kidnappers but she has a panic attack when she sees him. She tries to forget about all of it as her friend takes her to see a ballet and on the way back on the T, it catches on fire. she panics and runs off by herself knowing someone is following her, ready to kill her or kidnap her again. A lot of backstory.
She prays a lot as that's all that soothes and calms her...as others are trying to silence her...
Lot of old events are revisited. Just when she thinks she is safe, is she really? Other works are highlighted at the end. Discussion questions at the end.
Was given this book by the author for attending a Facebook party about her first book, unplanned. ( )

This is another great book by an author I am hooked on. I devour each book with anticipation and an adrenaline rush. Her books captivate readers with stories that grab your attention right from the beginning. The characters are well developed and they are very intriguing.

I have come to really like the character named Kennedy. She really has determination and a strong sense of survival. Kennedy is recovering from being kidnapped. I can't imagine the terror she must of felt when someone has your life in their hands. Do you try to escape or hope you get rescued ? I loved how the author talked about PTSD. I have been seeing a lot of books using PTSD in their stories. The author does a great job describing what Kennedy has endured and the struggles she faces . I know I would be looking around constantly and jumping at every noise.

Will Kennedy get to take a much needed break from school after her last test? That answer will take readers on a journey that is action packed and filled with intrigue that is indeed an attention getter. I loved how Kennedy's survival instinct is heightened and can sense danger approaching? Will Kennedy get help for PTSD? Can she trust people around her to protect her? Why are people around Kennedy in danger? Is there someone out there that wants to silence Kennedy? The book is one you wont be able to put down till you have read the last page. Get ready for another great story by an author who knows how to keep readers on the edge of their seats with powerful stories.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Bookfun.org. This is my honest review. ( )

At the end of Unplanned, I remember thinking it was way too early for Kennedy to go back to college after the events of that book. I wanted her to take some time to recuperate and put herself back together somewhat before going back to her everyday life. Now I'm thinking she may need it even more!

Some of what she was experiencing seemed to be PTSD, then it turned out to be more of the fallout from the previous book. I really hope she agrees to find a counselor to work her way through the events of the six weeks' span. I feel like she's carrying a heavy load and needs help to set some of it down.

One thing I found interesting in this book is the statement that Carl and Sandy are an interracial couple. I wonder how their early experiences together affected their beliefs and ministry to others. I'd be interested in that backstory.

I have a review copy, but I did purchase this voluntarily on Kindle. The review is honest and true. ( )
