A love triangle spanning 200 years…Alma Katsu takes listeners on a breathtaking journey through the landscape of the heart.

New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld (Leviathan) praises Alma Katsu’s The Taker as, “a centuries-spanning epic that will keep you turning pages all night. This marvelous debut is a thinking person’s guilty pleasure.” And Keith Donohue (The Stolen Child) says, “The Taker is a frighteningly compelling story about those most human monsters—desire and obsession. It will curl your hair and keep you up late at night.”

Now Alma Katsu delivers the highly anticipated follow-up to her haunting novel about an immortal woman learning firsthand that the heart wants what the heart wants…no matter how high the stakes. Fans of The Taker can finally indulge in their next juicy fix with the second book of the trilogy, The Reckoning. In this gripping, pulse-pounding supernatural sequel, discover what happens to Lanny, Luke, Adair—and Jonathan. The Reckoning picks up where The Taker leaves off, following Lanny on her path to redemption—and creating a whole new level of suspense.

    " Enjoyed this more than the first book, and can't wait for the third in her series. Great writing style. "

    " full reviews of The Taker and The Reckoning will be posted on my blog soon. Know this, though... This is one of the best series I have read in years. It sucked me in, chewed me up, and spit me out against my will. Once I was in Lanny and Adair's world, I wanted to stay there. If you enjoy suspense, twists, romance, horror, or the supernatural, I suggest you RUN to buy this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/23/2014

    " Loved it! Can't wait until the third and final book comes out next year! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 1/21/2014

    " Not as much happens as in the first book, but it was entertaining read that made me interested enough to ponder how the trilogy will end. I appreciated the author's ability to neatly work in key facts from the first book, without making you feel like you are re-reading it. However, I'm still in favor of sequels having a concise summary of the previous book in a appendix, but I don't see that catching on! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorraine Filipek | 1/20/2014

    " There was once when I was reading this that I loudly said an "OH MY GOD" when something happened that I didn't expect to happen....it's that good! Loved it and loved the first one...can't WAIT for the third to come out! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 1/19/2014

    " Absolutely amazing and I'm completely in love with Adair. I'm holding off reading the third book until the fourth one comes out :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mina De Caro | 1/5/2014

    " Summa cum laude to the graphic artists chosen by Century and Gallery Books for this sequel ...both the hardcover and the paperback cover art are amazing! "

    " Fast read. Good follow up to the Taker, once I remembered what was going on. Not as good, though, as book1. Can't wait to read the third, and complete the circle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 8/13/2013

    " This was a nice follow up to "The Taker". Wish there was more of Luke in the story. Adair was more likable in this book. Can't wait to see where Luke, Adair and Lanny end up. Should be interesting. "

    " This book was so incredibly boring I could not stay awake, could never get interested, and don't care what happens to the characters. Ever. Awful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/30/2012

    " A great follow up to Alma's first book in the trilogy The Taker. Captures you from the beginning with very few slow spots. Katsu leaves you wondering how it will end. I loved the ending and am looking forward to the 3rd and final novel! "
