The relationship between Taige and Cullen is touching. And I don't mean that in a dodgy way! These two characters are clearly perfect together, but mistakes and grief keep them apart for twelve years. Despite the time apart, their connection is still sizzling. You long for them to reconcile, but before anything can happen, there's a problem.
Cullen's daughter has been kidnapped and he needs Taige to use her psychic abilities to find her. But this is only the most recent in a brutal series of kidnappings which have more to do with Taige than she first realises.
This book was unusual in its pacing, but not unsuccessful. I was worried that the first chapters, which outline the relationship between the protagonists when they were young, would be expositionary. Instead the writing was engaging. When you're half way through the book, it feels like your hurtling towards the climax (again... given some of the book's content, that sounded like a double entendre...), but there's more to this story than a simple search and rescue.
This is a quickfire read with a good story, strong characters and some sizzling tension. Four stars for this fun (and somewhat raunchy) read!
They're not very long books and I feel that the story between the 2 main characters is just too expected and there are no doubts expressed by them. I expected more of a supernatural feel to Shiloh Walker's books but I don't feel she delivers on this.
Very disappointing and I will no longer be purchasing Shiloh Walker books.

I felt Taige's painful existence, her rejection, and her heartbreak. I didn't like the angst, but as stupid as it sounds I can see how a 21 year old young and stupid boy could make such an ugly hurtful mistake. Unfortunately, I think that’s very realistic in life.
I couldn't wait to see how the relationship would reunite. And, I couldn't wait to see the how the relationship between Taige and Jillian would turn out.
Taige... Her tragic life that never got better until the end of the story was very sorrowful to read. How could I not love her character that was self-sacrificing to help others?
Cullen... He started out a hero, made a stupid mistake, and ended up a hero.
The Story… If you love a happily ever after, which includes the bad guy getting what he deserves this is a perfect story. I wish the epilogue had been longer, and included a little of the relationship between Taige and Jullian. I would have loved to see the relationship turning into sisterhood and motherhood for them. But, sadly for me it didn't.
The story was very good, but for me the writing style didn't work. Very little dialogue between the characters. My opinion is there should be a balance between dialogue, action and narrative. This story had more narrative than anything else. I prefer more dialogue, or at least a balance, so I most likely will not read more from this author. But, that's just me, and I still think this was a very good story.
The story is about finding what has been lost and what can be gained from love. Their is a feeling of heartache here but behind all that is a mystery which holds murder, insanity, trauma, and kidnapping.
The other players here are Jillian Morgan, Cullen's 9 year old daughter and also very special. There is Taylor Jones, head of the special branch of the FBI which employs psychics of all types and varied talents. Taige's Uncle, Leon Carson, is a preacher and very evil man who is charming on the outside but has no love for the niece who lost her whole family in one night.
If good characters, great story, and happy endings interest you then this should be given a chance.
The Missing did NOT disappoint!
Chock full of suspense and emotion The Missing grabbed my heart and took it on a roller coaster ride. The kind with big drops and lots of loops.
While there is a paranormal element in this book (and it is a huge part of the story), for me, the part that touched me the most and has lasted with me over time was the love expressed by Taige and Cullen.
Taige and Cullen's teenage love filled my soul with pleasure. I soaked it up like sunshine. In truth, I wanted it to last forever but knew that lasting forever doesn't always come without bumps in the road. Or boulders.
The utter sorrow of losing Cullen's mother for both Cullen and Taige brought me to tears. I had to stop reading and just let the sorrow out. Not all readers will respond like I did. I wouldn't expect them to. I cannot imagine, however, that any reader could remain unmoved by the emotion these characters express.
Luckily for Shiloh Walker, she didn't leave my heart broken into a million pieces. Not that Walker is afraid of my wrath because typically she laughs in the face of my wrath. Despite her disregard for my fury, Walker did right by Taige and Cullen. Shiloh Walker gave Taige and Cullen the opportunity to work through their past and toward a happily ever after.
If you enjoy suspense, paranormal (psychic elements) and soul deep romance, don't miss THE MISSING by Shiloh Walker. The Missing (Berkley Sensation)
I almost gave this 4 stars, bc of the final scene she had with her wannabe boss--it was a bit overboard. But the excellent writing and all the characters were so well written that it made up for that part. I plan to read this again and I am glad I got it in paperback.
