“Alma Katsu’s searing tale of otherworldly lovers and eternal obsession will seduce you from page one. With its elegant prose and riveting plot, The Taker is as irresistible as the hauntingly beautiful, pleasure-seeking immortals who scorch its pages” (Kresley Cole, New York Times bestselling author of the Immortals After Dark series).
Combining the historical, supernatural, and fantasy in one stunning tale, The Taker centers on a mysterious young woman, Lanore, and an unwitting Maine doctor who falls into her world, a hidden world that exists outside the boundaries of time. In this magical realm, where the predatory use pleasure to corrupt the innocent, Lanore’s incredible devotion to Jonathan, her first true love, captures the attention of Adair, the dangerous man who rules this world, and ignites within him an all-consuming desire to possess her.

This book will get under your skin. It is written in a gripping, but literary style. I lost sleep trying to keep reading. It was beautiful, gripping, scary, thrilling. I both hated and loved the main charter. I was scared to death by the villain. A really different book!
This was such a wonderful read. Any moment I had I was reading to find out what happened next. I can not wait till The Reckoning comes out.
This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. As the other reviewers wrote, it has everything in it. I didn't want to put it down and I didn't want it to end. The writing was exceptional. I felt I knew the characters and what they were feeling. At times I was on the edge of my seat and other times I had tears in my eyes. I loved the history intertwined into the story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes intrigue, love, alchemy and history.
