    This is the second installment in The Taker trilogy honestly, it should have been called The Waiting because that s all you re doing in anticipation of the reunion of Lanore Adair after his 200 year entombment by her hand If that s your huge draw, then just read the last 75 50 pages and satisfy yourself It ll give you enough of the gist give the payoff quickly enough If you re really only in for the reunion, read the last 25 or so pages it s heartbreaking This was a lot of buildup considering that this is a shorter book than The Taker, it s a bit torturous If you re down with the torture, take in every page savor it selfishly I put this down many times to make it last because I know there s going to be a year for the finale to arrive that pains me We pick up right where the Taker left off Lanore is attending the exhibit of all her treasures at the museum with Luke the doctor who helped her abscond St Andrew in the first book she feels that old familiar hum in the back of her head She realizes it s Adair she s in a right panic So begins her flight because she knows that Adair will be coming for her She abandon s Luke heads for Casablanca We a...

    This book should have been titled THE ANGSTING How do you readers do it My emotions went from anxious, to impatient, extremely frustrated, slightly hopeful, utterly hopeless, completely pissed, 1000% heartbroken yes, 1000% okay, slight exaggeration and now SCARED TO DEATH OF The Descent.As flawed as it may sound , I adore Adair The need to see her was undeniable He had to find her and look at her, touch her skin and stand in her presence one time, even if it used up the last of his strength, even if it killed him sigh There was a time when I would ve done anything you asked I would ve made the sun shine for a full twenty four hours or had the tides stand still on the shore I would ve made the world bloom, every field and plain, to worship you with flowers I would ve created a second moo...

    Riveting, disturbing, intriguing, uniquely bizarre The Reckoning picks up a year after The Taken All the same characters are back and the plot can t be explained without big spoiler alerts so I won t even try I find myself torn while I read Alma Katsu s work because no one in their right mind should root for any of these characters because they are so ridiculously selfish and twisted and yet I do Adair is the most despicable of men and yet his one hint of vulnerability shows and I am cheering for him I am ashamed of myself but I just can t help it Lanore is just a tragic character that has had poor judgement for hundreds of years and uses men to fill the hole in her personality and heart with little remorse but I still want her to be happy It is hard to explain but it only proves that Alma Katsu is a brilliant writer This story is a complete original and jumps all around history from the 1300 s to m...

    I am so excited to be writing this review, it s really hard to type, while doing the happy dance The Taker Book 1 was by far, my favorite book of 2011 When I received The Reckoning Book 2 , I was very excited Alma Katsu is an amazing storyteller What goes on in that brain of hers, let me just say it s pure awesome I could always read about Lanny and Adair, their story could go on forever, and it doesn t get old.When I started this book, I knew Lanny was in deep, deep trouble I am saying this because of her actions, in the first book It actually made me nervous, for Adair is not someone to be trifled with She was so very brave in The Taker Lanny is very smart though, however she was constantly running and looking over her shoulder in this book, very climatic Adair actually grew on me this time around, than in The Taker He was such an evil, evil sinister person, it was a little unnerving In The Reckoning we get to read about another side of Adair It is refreshing how this very unusual love story just keeps twisting and turning There is no way anyone will figure out how the third, in this trilogy, will end.I really like the formatting of this series as well Just like book 1, The Reckoning takes you back and forth from present day to, oh let s say Morocco 1830 or Romania 1300 s If this book is not taking you way back, then you are in present day Michi...

    I was drawn to The Taker Trilogy when the book cover for The Reckoning caught my eye on the GR Giveaways The cover was so artistically stunning Check it out The stricking beauty in color contrast and composition paired with the book s title than grabbed my attention I am , however,not one who judges a book by its cover, so I looked up The Reckoning and book 1, The Taker, here on GR Read the blurbs, summaries and some reviews I decided that it sounded like something I could definitely sink my teeth into Lucky, lucky me I entered the giveaway and won an advance copy My most enthusiactic thanks to Gallery Books and Alma Katsu But The Reckoning, is after all book 2 in Alma Katsu s Trilogy, and since I am also peevishly unable it may be so unwilling to pick up a piece of literature from any place other than the very beginning, I had to first get my hands on book one Done that and am I ever so pleased with myself for soing so Check out my review It is such an amazingly well written and compelling story that when I finished and closed the book I immediately pick up book 2 and couldn t put that one down either The Reckoning seaml...

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty Deeply unsettling and gripping sequel to The Taker Part historical, part modern day thriller that explores deeper character development and emotions.Opening Sentence We were nearly at the Victoria and Albert Museum when we saw the crowds spilling out of the entrance and across Cromwell Street, forcing our taxi to stop in the middle of the road.The Review Lanore McIlvrae and Lucas Findley are spending some quality time together in Europe after Lucas helped her escape from murder charges It is not long before their tranquil lives are shattered as Lanore once again feels the tug of Adair s presence Her first conclusion is that Lucas is not safe with her so she runs away leaving him to pick up the shattered pieces of his life by himself much like Jonathan left her many years ago Lanny seeks other immortals whom were once Adair s companions looking to find a way that could possibly undue her curse or destroy Adair forever Lucas is left hurt and betrayed He wants to prove to Lanny that he should stay by her side while wondering if she has already been caught and destroyed by Adair.Adair is furious He wants nothing than to claim his revenge on Lanore for locking him up for two hundred years Adair must enlist the help of Jude, one of his unloyal and selfish companions, to find Lanore and to learn about the modern world As the time ...

    This is a review of books 1 2 Part me was shocked and a small dark part of me was mad I don t know exactly what to say about this book I don t even know what possessed me to read this book I haven t read any reviews of this book so I don t have any expectations In fact I have absolutely no idea what I m about to read So when I finish the two books I was so flabbergasted that this book is like that.This book is sort of an enigma to me But one thing I m sure of is that the book s theme is dark Very dark It tackled love in the ugliest ways The characters that loved and were loved in this book were tangled in web of lies, deceit and carnal obsession I don t like anyone of them They irked me, and even made me furious Their decisions and how they handled the situation want me to bang my head and question their sanity What were they thinking If the book s intention was to show that love can be horrid emotion then I applauded it because for me it worked That being said, I don t think that whatever it is t...
